Scooter Gennett expects to receive reps at shortstop and perhaps the outfield in spring training.

Gennett was drafted as a shortstop and started 12 games at the position in A-ball, but he's been a second baseman exclusively since then. However, with Jonthan Villar now entrenched at the keystone, Gennett will attempt to add to his versatility. The 26-year-old slugged a career-high 14 homers in 2016, but he hit an underwhelming .263/.317/.412 overall.

Brewers and INF Scooter Gennett avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.525 million contract.

Scooter Gennett singled and smacked a two-run homer in Friday's loss to the Cubs.

Gennett's bomb off of John Lackey gave the Brewers the lead in the seventh inning, but their bullpen eventually coughed it up. The second baseman has now homered in two of his last three games and three of his last eight contests. He's extended his career high in dingers to 13.

Scooter Gennett lifted a two-run homer on Friday but it wasn't enough to beat the Cardinals.

He walked and scored on an error in the first inning before swatting a bomb to center in the third inning with Jonathan Villar aboard. Gennett has been an everyday player for the Brewers this year but has not produced fantasy-worthy counting stats. He is batting .262 with 11 homers and 45 RBI overall.

Scooter Gennett delivered an RBI double in Friday’s 1-0 victory over the Pirates.

The Brewers couldn’t get anything going against Jameson Taillon through the first five innings, but Martin Maldonado reached on a hit-by-pitch to begin the sixth and Gennett brought him home with a two-out double to center. It was his only hit in four at-bats on Friday. Gennett is batting .263/.315/.393 with 10 homers and eight steals through 111 games this season. He’s not an overly exciting fantasy option, but he has been the primary No. 2 hitter in Milwaukee’s lineup recently.

Scooter Gennett went 2-for-3 with three RBI, a stolen base and a run scored as the Brewers used a late surge to down the Diamondbacks 9-4 on Tuesday.

The second baseman got the scoring started in the inning with a two-run single, and he later came around to score. Gennett has been finding ways to contribute in recent days, and the 26-year-old is hitting .264/.319/.414 with nine homers, 33 RBI, 36 runs scored and six steals in 78 games overall.

Scooter Gennett went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the A's.

Lovely work by Gennett, who cracked a two-run homer in the fifth off A's starter Daniel Mengden. That dinger snapped a 1-1 tie and gave the Brew Crew a lead they would not relinquish. Four of Gennett's last 10 games have seen him notch multiple hits. The 26-year-old second baseman is slashing .275/.338/.451 with seven homers and 20 RBI over 193 at-bats.

Scooter Gennett clubbed his sixth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Dodgers on Sunday.

His first-inning blast off Kenta Maeda got the Brewers started with a bang, but that would wind up being the entire extent of their offense in the contest. Gennett finished the afternoon 1-for-4, raising his season slash to .266/.333/.429 to go along with six homers and 18 RBI.

Scooter Gennett went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Monday's loss to the Giants.

Gennett's fourth-inning RBI double drew the Brew Crew to within 4-3. They would tie proceedings at 4-4 in the sixth inning, but a late deluge of opposition runs led to an eventual 11-5 loss. For the season, the 26-year-old second baseman is slashing .265/.333/.426 with five homers and 15 RBI over 162 at-bats. There is little in his game that translates well for fantasy purposes.

Scooter Gennett went 2-for-4 and drove in three of the Brewers' four runs Wednesday against the A's.

The Brewers could be playing hotter hands Aaron Hill at second and Hernan Perez at third, but Gennett has started five games in a row and he got the job done tonight, upping his season RBI total from nine to 12. He's hitting just .208/.273/.300 in his last 32 games, and he'll be in serious danger of losing his job once the Brewers call up Orlando Arcia to play shortstop.
