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.

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.
Apr 5 - 4:41 PM

Scooter Gennett went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the Rockies.

Gennett whacked his two-run homer off Jorge De La Rosa in the fourth inning. He now has four taters for the spring. That is just two fewer than he hit in 375 at-bats last season. The 25-year-old slashed .264/.294/.381 with six homers, 18 doubles and 42 runs scored over the course of the 2015 campaign. While he is expected to start at second come Opening Day, his health is worth monitoring. An early March MRI revealed a bout of minor shoulder tendinitis. He appears to be past that, but expect the Brewers to play things cautious if further signs of injury crop up.
Mar 30 - 8:32 PM

Scooter Gennett continued his torrid start to his Cactus League campaign by going 2-for-3 with an RBI double against the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Gennett only appeared in his third game of spring training on Monday, but he's already impressed with three extra-base hits in as many games. One of his two hits was a double off lefty Patrick Corbin, which is an encouraging sign for a guy who underperformed last year and has historically struggled against southpaws. He's expected to be the Brewers' Opening Day second baseman.
Mar 22 - 12:37 AM

Scooter Gennett (shoulder) is expected to return to playing second base on Saturday.

Gennett returned to Cactus League action in the designated hitter spot on Thursday, going 3-for-3 with a homer. The next step is playing the field as he works his way back from shoulder tendinitis.
Mar 18 - 11:33 AM

Scooter Gennett was perfect at the plate Thursday against the Rangers, going 3-for-3 in his Cactus League debut.

Gennett finished a triple shy of the cycle while serving as the Brewers’ DH. His solo shot to lead off the third inning accounted for the game’s first run. Gennett battled shoulder tendinitis earlier this spring but he looked pretty healthy on Thursday. He should be the Brewers’ Opening Day second baseman.
