Brewers' Roenicke chooses Carlos Gomez to bat leadoff


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:00 pm ET) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke told reporters Tuesday's spring lineup against the Reds will be the team's Opening Day batting order, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Tuesday's lineup had center fielder Carlos Gomez batting first, and he was followed by catcher Jonathan Lucroy, right fielder Ryan Braun, third base Aramis Ramirez, first baseman Adam Lind, left fielder Khris Davis, second baseman Scooter Gennett and shortstop Jean Segura. The pitcher will bat ninth.

Roenicke said he chose Gomez to bat leadoff over Gennett because moving Gomez to the middle of the lineup disrupts other hitters.


Brewers to decide leadoff hitter Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke plans to decide between Scooter Gennett and Carlos Gomez for the leadoff spot in the lineup by Monday, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Gennett hit .289 with 54 RBI and 55 runs scored in 440 plate appearances last season while Gomez hit.284 with 23 home runs and 73 RBI in 574 plate appearances.


Brewers' Carlos Gomez, Scooter Gennett top options to bat leadoff


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Monday he wasn't ready to announce who will hit leadoff in 2015, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. However, he indicated it would be Carlos Gomez or Scooter Gennett.

Gomez hit .276 with a .356 on-base percentage, .488 slugging percentage and .844 OPS in 106 games as the leadoff hitter in 2014. Gennett hit .323 with a .351 on-base percentage, .505 slugging percentage and .856 OPS in 23 games batting first last season.


Brewers Scooter Gennett looking to prove himself


(3/5/2015) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett knows that he must improve against left-handed pitching, per the team's official website.

"I'm very eager," said Gennett. "For me, I'm not eager about showing or proving [that I can hit lefties], but just for myself, being able to play and have fun every day and get in there every day and crack lefties. That's part of the game -- you don't want to [sit] out. It's back to what I'm used to, and I'm really looking forward to it." 

He didn't face one left-handed starting pitcher last year.  When batting against southpaw relievers in 2014, he went 4-for-39.  Gennett is 10-for-78 against lefties.

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said this about Gennett's struggles.

"For me, you can't hit lefties unless you can get hit by them," Gennett said, "which means, if there's a guy throwing 97 [mph] and slinging it in there, the only way I'm going to hit him is if I stand in there willing to stay in there and wear one in the neck or the shoulder or the ribs. That's what you have to do to hit lefties. So that's the one thing I worry about -- don't be a scaredy cat and get out of the way, and I'll be all right."

Gennett, 24, has a career batting average of .300 going into his third season with the Brewers.


Brewers' Scooter Gennett glad to have full-time role


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Brewers infielder Scooter Gennett is glad to have a full-time role heading into 2015, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Gennett spent last season in a platoon with Rickie Weeks, but with Weeks gone, he'll assume the full-time role. Gennett said he feels far less stressed about his position on the team this spring. "Seeing as I'm pretty much the everyday guy, that eliminated the stress, or whatever you want to call it, off my back," he said. 

"Just not having to worry about stuff out of my control. I've put myself in this position where I've earned the job, I've shown them what I can do, and now it's about consistently doing it," he added. 

Manager Ron Roenicke has already said he'll give Gennett plenty of opportunities to prove himself against left-handers. 

Gennett, 24, hit .289/.320/.434 over 440 at-bats last season. 


Brewers manager Ron Roenicke eyeing infield depth this spring


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke will spend spring training judging his infielder's versatility for depth behind Jean Segura and Scooter Gennett, per MLB.com.

Milwaukee has three shortstops on its 40-man roster with the chance to break camp with the big-league club. Hector Gomez, 26, and Luis Sardinas, 21, are expected to see time at second base behind Scooter Gennett.

"We want to give Scooter a chance against lefties, but if there's a day off we want to give him, or if it works out that we need to have a [right-handed hitting] guy there more often, who's it going to be?" Roenicke said. "Is it going to be Sardinas? Jimenez, because we know he hits lefties well? Who's that other guy who's going to be there?"

Yadiel Rivera, 22, should see some work at third behind Aramis Ramirez.


Brewers' Scooter Gennett prepping for full-time role


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2015) Brewers infielder Scooter Gennett is prepping for a full-time role in 2015, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Gennett had a bit of a breakout season in 2014, but platooned with Rickie Weeks. With Weeks now a free-agent, Gennett is looking at a full-time role. "When it comes to playing every day and facing lefties, I’m looking forward to that," he said. "It has been a while. I can finally get back to my game."

Gennett admitted that he doesn't think it will be that hard to adjust to seeing left-handers while at the plate. "For me, it doesn’t matter what side it is coming from if I’m getting consistent at-bats," he said. 

The 24-year-old Gennett hit .289/.320/.434 over 440 at-bats last year.

Scooter Gennett out of lineup again due to quad injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett was not in the starting lineup Sunday against the Cardinals after re-injuring his quadriceps Saturday, per MLB.com.

"It’s OK," Gennett said. "It’s just one of those things that obviously isn’t going to really go away. It probably will eventually. I just need to watch out, how much I’m using it. I can’t go out all-speed every time. That’s usually how I play, I’m running out every ground ball no matter what the case is. I think the only time I don’t run the ball out is when there’s a runner on first and I pop out and there’s nowhere for me to go. I just have to watch, have to be smart."

Gennett missed five straight games from July 23-27 due to the injury.

"I think it’s just one of those things where us as players learn how to play through some things," he said. "At the same time, if I get on and I’m the winning run and I’m at second base, I don’t want to not be able to score for my team. I think that’s where we all have to be smart. I’ll have to communicate well with them to let them know how I feel. Right now, it’s not the right time to have a serious injury."
