Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Monday that Scooter Gennett will be given a chance to play against left-handed pitching next season.
He platooned with Rickie Weeks in 2014, but Weeks is a free agent and the Brewers don't have another viable platoon mate on the roster. Gennett has just 10 hits in 78 career at-bats versus lefties with the big club but had a more respectable .259/.294/.349 against southpaws in the minors. Dec 8 - 7:47 PM
