Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett drives in game-winner on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/12/2015) Just hours after being recalled from Triple-A, Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett was the hero in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Nationals. Gennett went 1 for 4 on the evening, but his lone hit brought in the go-ahead, and eventual game-winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning.

"Obviously it wasn't the hardest-hit ball in the world," Gennett said, per MLB.com, "but it got the job done."

Gennett was demoted to Colorado Springs about three weeks ago after getting off to a sluggish start with the Brewers. But he hit well in Triple-A, and had a key clutch hit on Thursday.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Brewers option 2B Scooter Gennett to Triple-A


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Gennett has been struggling all season, hitting a paltry .154 in 65 at-bats this year, way down from the .289 average he posted last year. He's also dealt with a hand injury that landed him on the disabled list. 

Knebel is 1-2 with a 4.70 ERA and six saves in 16 appearances with the Sky Sox this season. He appeared in eight games with the Tigers last season, posting no record and a 6.23 ERA. 


Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett fighting through slump


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is struggling at the plate so far this season. The younger player is hitting just .159 63 at-bats this season and is looking for answers, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"I'm starting to get that confidence back, that swagger. But, you know, reality is reality," he said. "It's something I haven't been through before — first time at this level. That being said, I have to go back to how I had success, and that's hitting the ball to left field, trying to hit ground balls and not trying to yank.

"When you're not performing to your abilities, what comes secondary to that is trying to do too much. Now it's to the point where I'm going to try to tickle the ball over the shortstop's head and (let) something happen, rather than forcing things."

Manager Craig Counsell thinks his swing will come around soon.

"He's been struggling," he said. "With Scooter, the one thing I've seen for years in watching him play is he always has hit. It's the one thing that we know. He's been very consistent at it every year he's played. I think you've just got to keep going with it, and know that he's going to hit.

"He's been a hitter his whole life. It's what got him here. He knows it — it's time to start hitting."

Brewers' Scooter Gennett reinstated from DL, Logan Schafer optioned


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2015) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett has been reinstated from the 15-day disabled list with a hand injury, the team announced.

Gennett was forced to go on the DL after cutting his hand while reaching for shampoo in the shower. He is hitting .207 with one RBI in 29 at-bats this season. He is back in the starting lineup Tuesday batting sixth.

"The first day, I was knocking off the cobwebs but the next three days felt good," Gennett said to MLB.com. "The last day, I hit pretty much every ball hard. I think that it was a good opportunity to work on some things during the game that maybe I wouldn't get to work on here, so who knows? Maybe I got even better in those few days down there."

With the reinstatement, Milwaukee needed to clear a roster spot and they did so by optioning Logan Schafer to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Schafer hit .182 with six runs scored in 33 at-bats for Milwaukee.


Brewers still deciding when to bring Scooter Gennett off DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) If Brewers shortstop Jean Segura goes on the 7-day concussion disabled list Tuesday, then it seems the Brewers will activate second baseman Scooter Gennett (hand) from the 15-day disabled list. If Segura doesn't need a DL stint, then the Brewers might give Gennett more time to recover.

"We're blessed with the fact that Scooter [Gennett] is available tomorrow," assistant general manager Gord Ash said, per MLB.com. "We can always put [Gennett back on the active roster] for Jean if we have to, but we don't want to do that."

Gennett is batting .375 (3 for 8) with one double, one RBI, one walk, one run and one stolen base in three games during a rehab assignment with Class A Wisconsin.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

“He still needs to play well before we decide what we want to do,” Roenicke said. “I told him when he went down, ‘This isn’t going through the motions. This is going down to make sure you work to when we bring you back, you’re ready.’"

Brewers place 2B Scooter Gennett on DL, make minor moves


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) The injury-ravaged and floundering Brewers have placed second baseman Scooter Gennett on the disabled list with a left hand laceration. Four of their top position players are down.

His problem has festered since cutting his hand in the shower. The original diagnosis was that he was to likely miss two games. He's expected to return after his 15 days are up, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Once he returns, he will attempt to improve a .207/.303/.207 slash line. Gennett has six singles all year.

The move motivated the Brewers to promote infielder/outfielder Elian Herrera from Triple-A and designate for assignment right-hander Brandon Kintzler.
