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. Jun 22 - 7:06 PM

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.
Jun 19 - 9:57 PM

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.
Jun 14 - 2:48 AM

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.
Jun 8 - 11:07 PM

Scooter Gennett is not in the Brewers' lineup Friday.

He'll get a day off against lefty John Lamb. The Brewers are going with Aaron Hill at second base and Hernan Perez at third base.
May 27 - 4:40 PM

Brewers activated 2B Scooter Gennett from the 15-day disabled list.

Gennett will rejoin the Brewers on Thursday night against the Padres after missing a little over two weeks with a strained right oblique. He was rocking a cool .877 OPS with four home runs over his first 18 games this season. Yadiel Rivera got pushed off the roster Thursday to open a spot.
May 12 - 2:37 PM

Scooter Gennett (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Brevard County on Tuesday.

That's the day he's eligible to return from the disabled list, but he'll get in a couple rehab games first. If all goes well, Gennett should rejoin the Brewers by next weekend.
May 8 - 11:31 AM

The Brewers expect Scooter Gennett (oblique) to miss three weeks of action.

Gennett was placed on the disabled list Thursday with a strained right oblique. The injury didn't require an MRI, though, as the club believes the strain is a slight one. "It's not a bad (injury)," manager Craig Counsell said. "They didn't do an MRI. It wasn't deemed serious enough for that. It's still a DL (situation), though. These things are a little tricky so we'll go with it. He's not playing for at least two weeks, then we'll see." Yadiel Rivera has made two straight starts at second base with Gennett out, but Colin Walsh and Hernan Perez should see some time there, as well.

Brewers placed 2B Scooter Gennett on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique.

Gennett suffered the injury during batting practice Tuesday on a cold evening at Wrigley Field. He could be out for a month. It's an especially tough blow because the second baseman was off to a great start this season, sporting an .877 OPS and four home runs in 18 games. Yadiel Rivera, Colin Walsh, and Hernan Perez will fill in at second base.
Apr 28 - 10:59 AM

Scooter Gennett was scratched from the Brewers' lineup Tuesday due to right oblique tightness.

The change happened just before first pitch at Wrigley Field, after Gennett's oblique tightened up during batting practice. The second baseman is considered day-to-day for now, but oblique injuries will sometimes linger. Gennett has produced an .877 OPS with four home runs in 18 games this season. Yadiel Rivera is starting at second on Tuesday night against the Cubs.
Apr 26 - 9:14 PM

Scooter Gennett was scratched from the Brewers' starting lineup Tuesday against the Cubs.

No reason has been given yet for the sudden absence. There should be an update from the Brewers either during the game (8:05 p.m. ET first pitch) or after.
Apr 26 - 8:09 PM

Scooter Gennett drove in the go-ahead run as the Brewers topped the Twins on Tuesday.

Milwaukee allowed Minnesota to tie the game 5-5 in the bottom of the eighth inning, but Yadiel Rivera hit a double-turned-triple with one out in the top of the ninth and Gennett followed with an RBI single to recapture the lead. Gennett cooled considerably after a scorching start, but he's currently rocking a .943 OPS over 14 games. When he's batting second, he carries significant fantasy value.
Apr 19 - 5:27 PM

Scooter Gennett went 2-for-4 with a home run in Saturday's loss to the Astros.

Gennett hit the homer, a solo shot, off Doug Fister in the fifth inning. It has been a heck of an opening week for the 25-year-old, who didn't hit his third home run last year until June 24. Gennett is batting .412 with a 1.465 OPS and five runs scored through his first five games this season.
Apr 9 - 11:41 PM

Scooter Gennett is batting second again Wednesday versus Giants right-hander Jeff Samardzija.

It seems Gennett might bat there regularly against right-handed starters, at least to open the year. Jonathan Villar, who hit second on Opening Day versus lefty Madison Bumgarner, is batting ninth on Wednesday.
Apr 6 - 10:53 AM

Scooter Gennett is batting second for the Brewers on Tuesday night against the Giants.

Jonathan Villar hit second in Monday's opener versus left-hander Madison Bumgarner, but Gennett gets the nod there Tuesday against right-hander Johnny Cueto. Those two both homered off Bumgarner in an Opening Day loss.
