Scooter Gennett is not in Monday's lineup against the Nationals.

Not a surprise with southpaw Gio Gonzalez on hill for Washington. Rickie Weeks will play second base and bat leadoff Monday.
Jun 23 - 5:08 PM

Scooter Gennett hit his fourth home run of the season in a win versus Arizona on Monday.

Gennett finished 2-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored. He's carved out a nice gig for himself, batting leadoff against right-handers. Rickie Weeks' pesky production against southpaws ensures Gennett won't start every day, but it also protects his batting average, which fantasy owners appreciate. Gennett is slashing .299/.336/.450 with 20 RBI through 65 games.

Scooter Gennett hit leadoff for the Brewers Tuesday.

Jean Segura, who had been battling leadoff of late, slid all the way down to the No. 8 spot. Gennett reached base twice on the night, so he might be back in the spot Wednesday. The Brewers have used five different hitters in the leadoff spot this season, with Carlos Gomez making a team-high 42 starts there. However, the club seems committed to keeping Gomez in the No. 4 spot going forward.
Jun 11 - 9:43 AM

Scooter Gennett hit his second home run of the season in a loss to the Reds on Sunday.

The second batter of the game, Gennett took Reds starter Alfredo Simon out to right to give the Brewers an early lead. It was Gennett's only hit of the game, and he's got two hits in his last 16 at-bats. Even so, his starting job isn't in any danger with Rickie Weeks foundering as well.
May 4 - 9:56 PM

Scooter Gennett went 2-for-5 with his first home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Padres.

The second baseman accounted for all of the Brewers' runs in the game with his solo shot. Gennett also stole his second base of the year in the contest. After winning the starting second base job out of spring, Gennett is showing why with a .322/.355/.458 line through 20 games.
Apr 23 - 12:25 AM

Scooter Gennett had a couple of hits Thursday to raise his average to .308.

Meanwhile, Jean Segura is hitting .228 with one walk and three caught stealings (versus three successes) from the two hole. If that continues, maybe Gennett will get a look up there. Such a move would also give the Brewers a left-handed hitter to break up all of the righties at the top and middle of the lineup.
Apr 17 - 10:33 PM

Scooter Gennett went 1-for-4 with a stolen base against the Pirates on Sunday.

The second baseman stole his first base of the season in the win after stealing just two in 69 games last year. After a battle with Rickie Weeks for the starting job in spring, Gennett has been the better of the two out of the gate and will likely get the lion's share of the at-bats at the keystone going forward.
Apr 13 - 4:46 PM

Scooter Gennett broke out of his Cactus League slump with two doubles and two RBI in four at-bats against the Padres on Thursday.

Gennett entered the game hitting just .125, but was a big part of the Brewers' offense on Thursday. He's battling the red-hot Rickie Weeks for the starting job at second base.
Mar 13 - 5:53 PM

Scooter Gennett paced the Brewers offensive attack with a two-run homer in Friday's Cactus League loss to the Padres.

The young second baseman finished the afternoon 1-for-2 and also drew a walk. While he entered the spring as the favorite to open the season as the Brewers starting second baseman, he's hitting just .133 (2-for-15) while Rickie Weeks is tearing the cover off the ball. Even if he does win the job outright, his fantasy value is extremely limited.
Mar 8 - 12:13 AM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said that Scooter Gennett is penciled in as the team's starting second baseman in 2014.

General manager Doug Melvin also said earlier this offseason that Gennett had "an edge right now" over Rickie Weeks for the job. It's not a surprise after Gennett batted .324/.356/.479 with six home runs and 21 RBI over 230 plate appearances in 2013. Weeks is coming off year where he batted just .209/.306/.357 with 10 homers, but he's obviously shown more than that in the past. With an $11 million salary for 2014 and no experience at any other position than second base, the Brewers seem likely to shop him.

Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said Tuesday that Scooter Gennett has "an edge right now" over Rickie Weeks for the starting second base job, but that a decision will be made during spring training.

Gennett impressed in his first taste of the big leagues this season, batting .324/.356/.479 with six home runs and 21 RBI over 230 plate appearances. The Brewers figure to shop Weeks this winter, but there might not be much interest coming off a down year and hamstring surgery.

Scooter Gennett singled in two of the Brewers' four runs Thursday in a victory over the Mets.

Gennett is hitting .327/.360/.490 in 202 at-bats. It seems like a given that the Brewers will attempt to trade Rickie Weeks this winter, so that they can go forward with Gennett at the position. However, there may not be any demand for Weeks' services.
Thu, Sep 26, 2013 10:46:00 PM

Scooter Gennett went 2-for-4 with two runs scored against the Braves on Wednesday.

It's a wonder it took an injury to Rickie Weeks for Gennett to finally get an extended look with the Brewers, as all he's done this year is hit .328/.362/.495 in 198 at-bats. He's now got four multi-hit games in his last five starts, and his two runs scored gives him 28 in 65 games. The 23-year-old has definitely put himself on the radar for 2014.
Wed, Sep 25, 2013 10:02:00 PM

Scooter Gennett was 3-for-4 with two runs scored in the Brewers' loss to the Angels on Saturday.

The magic continues for Gennett, who is now batting .347/.383/.540 over his first 134 plate appearances. The 23-year-old is sure to cool down at some point but is worth rostering in mixed fantasy leagues for now.
