Scooter Gennett went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in an extra-inning loss to the Pirates on Wednesday.
He took starter Chad Kuhl over the wall in the sixth inning as the Reds began their climb out of a four-run hole. The second baseman also walked twice in the long contest. He has an excellent .328/.368/.544 slash line with nine homers and 34 RBI. He's hit seven of those longballs in the last two weeks. He is following up his 2017 breakout with another strong season at the plate and could be an attractive trade chip this summer for the rebuilding Reds. May 24 - 12:29 AM

Scooter Gennett smashed a grand slam and drove in six runs in the Reds' win over the Pirates on Tuesday.

It's his first grand slam this season after he ripped an improbable four grand slams last year. Gennett also had an RBI double and a sacrifice fly. He's hit six home runs over his last 13 games after clubbing just two homers over his first 34 contests. Gennett was looking droppable after suffering a shoulder injury earlier this month, but his batting line is now up to .324/.358/.528 after his hot streak.

Scooter Gennett went 2-for-4 and drove in two runs on Saturday, leading the Reds to an extra-inning victory over the Cubs in the first game of their doubleheader.

Gennett opened the scoring in the contest with an RBI single to score Jose Peraza in the first inning. He then broke a 2-2 tie in the sixth, again plating Peraza with a run-scoring single. He has been one of the most consistent bats in the Reds' lineup and is now slashing a robust .329/.364/.521 with seven homers and 27 RBI.
May 19 - 4:58 PM

Scooter Gennett went 2-for-4 with a homer on Wednesday in a win over the Giants.

Gennett also scored two runs. The homer was a solo blast off of Cory Gearrin, and the second baseman now has seven on the 2018 season. He's more than backed up his breakout season of 2017, and his season line is now up to .327/.368/.563 with 25 RBI and the aforementioned seven homers in 42 games.
May 16 - 6:36 PM

Scooter Gennett went 3-for-5 with a run scored on Saturday in a win over the Dodgers on Saturday.

Gennett now has seven hits over his last two games. The second baseman now has his season average up to .329, and his slugging percentage of .521 on the season shows he's making lots of hard contact. Gennett is red-hot with the bat, and we've seen him go on these kinds of streaks before. Ride the wave if you have him on your fantasy roster.
May 13 - 12:39 AM

Scooter Gennett went 4-for-5 with a homer and three RBI as the Reds beat the Dodgers 6-2 on Friday.

Is it 2017 again? Gennett has now homered in four straight games after homering in just one of his first 34 games (though he did hit two in that one). The stretch has been potent enough to up his OPS from .726 to .878, so any chance of him being replaced by Nick Senzel in the near future is gone.
May 12 - 2:06 AM

Scooter Gennett went 3-for-4 with a two-run double, a solo home run and three total RBI in Thursday's win over the Dodgers.

Gennett helped the road team to a 2-1 advantage via his two-run double in the sixth inning and later capped off the game's scoring with a solo home run in the eighth inning. This season, the second baseman is slashing a sturdy .301/.345/.485 with five home runs and 21 RBI over the course of 136 at-bats. He's now homered in three consecutive contests and has picked up six total extra-base hits over his last four games.
May 11 - 1:53 AM

Scooter Gennett is out of the Reds' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Mets.

It looks to be a mostly-routine day of rest for Gennett, who has battled a right shoulder issue off and on this season. Alex Blandino will start at second base and bat sixth versus Mets right-hander Zack Wheeler.
May 9 - 10:09 AM

Scooter Gennett homered and doubled in a losing cause Monday against the Mets.

The homer was Gennett's third of the year; his previous two came in the same game two weeks ago against the Braves. With Nick Senzel playing second in Triple-A, Gennett needs to step it up in order to remain a regular all year long.
May 7 - 11:24 PM

Scooter Gennett (shoulder) was hitless in three plate appearances in his return to action Saturday.

Gennett had been limited to pinch-hitting over the last few days because of a sore right shoulder. We could see Nick Senzel if Gennett's shoulder issue flares up again, but for now it appears Gennett is ready to go.
May 6 - 8:58 AM

Scooter Gennett (shoulder) struck out as a pinch hitter in Friday's victory over the Marlins.

The good news, is that he made it through that at-bat without any difficulty and remains on track to rejoin the Reds' starting lineup on Saturday. The hard-hitting second baseman is hitting .291/.336/.402 with a pair of homers and 14 RBI on the season.
May 4 - 10:20 PM

Scooter Gennett (shoulder) expects to be back in the Reds' lineup Saturday.

Gennett hasn't started since Sunday because of a sore right shoulder, but he's pinch-hit three times this week and went through a full pregame workout Friday. The Reds' second baseman is sporting a .293/.339/.405 batting line with two home runs and 14 RBI this season.
May 4 - 5:06 PM

Scooter Gennett (shoulder) remained out of the Reds' lineup Friday.

Gennett hasn't started since Sunday because of a sore right shoulder, although he has made three pinch-hitting appearances. Alex Blandino is getting another start at second base.
May 4 - 3:05 PM

Scooter Gennett (shoulder) grounded out as a pinch-hitter on Wednesday against the Brewers.

Gennett has now pinch-hit in back-to-back games, so it'd seem likely that he will be able to return to the Reds' starting lineup for Friday night's series opener against the Marlins. Alex Blandino played second base for the Reds in Wednesday's loss to Milwaukee.
May 3 - 8:52 AM

Scooter Gennett (shoulder) is out of the Reds' starting lineup again on Wednesday against the Brewers.

Gennett is still working through some right shoulder discomfort, but an MRI taken Monday showed no structural damage and he was able to pinch-hit on Tuesday night. Alex Blandino is starting at second base and batting seventh for the Reds on Wednesday versus Brewers left-hander Wade Miley.
