Scooter Gennett may have staying power


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/26/2014) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett seems determined to finish June as hot as he began it, his grand slam Wednesday giving him three homers for the month to go along a .392 (29 for 74) batting average, 11 doubles and a 1.093 OPS.

The streak has helped him make up significant ground at second base. In Head-to-Head points leagues, he's now the 16th-best player at the position, which may not sound all that great, but keep in mind he's at a serious disadvantage in terms of at-bats, having sat out every game started by a left-handed pitcher in favor of Rickie Weeks.

Even so, he's now on pace for 10 homers and 41 doubles, showing off a Martin Prado-like skill set that makes those consistently favorable scouting reports that accompanied him during his time in the minors suddenly understandable. From the numbers alone, he didn't look like much, but now at age 24, perhaps he has developed the strength to drive the ball a little more.

The key to his value going forward will be playing time. Once his production levels off, he won't have much mixed-league appeal if he isn't playing every day. But manager Ron Roenicke recently said he'd like to see Gennett play against left-handers, and obviously, he has the final say in that. If you need middle infield help and aren't dead set on getting home runs or stolen bases specifically, Gennett is worth a speculative pickup now that we know what he can do at the plate.


Scooter Gennett slam keys defeat of Nationals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) The Brewers needed other hitters to step up with three of their top sluggers out of the lineup Wednesday afternoon against Washington. Scooter Gennett certainly stepped up - and he did it early.

Gennett hit a grand slam in the second inning against Stephen Strasburg and singled in a run in the sixth. He had not driven in more than two runs in any game this season. His slam and single raised his slugging percentage to .481 on the year.


Brewers might be moving away from second-base platoon


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) Although Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks was in the starting lineup Saturday and Sunday against the Rockies with a left-handed starter on the mound, manager Ron Roenicke indicated it might be time to start moving away from the second-base platoon and start giving Scooter Gennett starts against lefties.

"Scooter is a guy who eventually I'd like to see out there against some left-handers," Roenicke said, per MLB.com. "I think he's getting more confident against the left-handers. He can hit. There's no reason why he can't hit left-handers."

While Gennett is batting just .138 against lefties in 28 games this season, his success since moving to the leadoff spot in the lineup is a main reason why Roenicke is pondering starting Gennett against lefties. Gennett is batting .450 (18 for 40) in nine games batting leadoff.

"Maybe he ends up being a leadoff hitter for years, I don't really know," Roenicke said. "But I think what he's doing right now is going to help him in the future no matter where he's hitting in the lineup. It's forced him to really look at pitches and concentrate more instead being up there just as a free-swinger like he was."


Hitters to sit in Week 13


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/22/2014) Thinking about starting Derek Norris, Mike Napoli, Scooter Gennett, Yangervis Solarte, Jean Segura or Dexter Fowler in Fantasy Week 13 (June 23-29)? You might want to think again.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Sizzling Scooter Gennett sitting Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) One of the hottest hitters in the sport is set to sit Saturday as Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is out of the lineup in Colorado.

Gennett has seven multi-hit games in the last eight starts. He is 17 for 38 with 10 runs in the last nine games to improve his stat line on the season to .311/.349/.471.


Scooter Gennett crushes one


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett crushed a 441-foot solo homer to center in Monday's 9-3 win over Arizona. He finished 2 for 5 with two RBI and two runs scored, raising his average to .299/.336/.450.

It was the fourth straight two-hit game for Gennett, who's 8-for-18 with five RBI in that stretch.


Scooter Gennett thriving in leadoff spot


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2014) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett has been pretty outstanding since replacing Jean Segura as the team's leadoff hitter. He's batting .438 (7 for 16) with one RBI, one stolen base, three doubles and four runs in four games since moving to the top of the lineup.

Gennett is even drawing 4.8 pitches per plate appearance atop the lineup, which is above his career average of 3.45, per MLB.com.

"I had a discussion with him a week and a half ago about him being more selective with that first pitch," manager Ron Roenicke said. "It doesn't make any sense at all to go up there and see a breaking ball, a good breaking ball, and swing at it, hit a ground ball and make an out.

"It makes no sense at all, your first at-bat of the game. What are you going to do your second at-bat? Are you going to go up there, probably 'take,' and then it's going to be a fastball right down the middle and you're taking it. So the discussions I had with him are more on just being selective; it's not because he's leading off."


Scooter Gennett shows some pop


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2014) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett homered, doubled twice and scored three times in Sunday's 9-0 win over the Cubs. He raised his average to .281/.315/.425 and has three homers and 15 RBI in 167 at-bats.

Scooter Gennett helps Brewers stay hot by staying hot


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2014) Second baseman Scooter Gennett has quietly produced and played a role in contributing to the early-season success of the Brewers.

Gennett has gone hitless in just three games he has started since April 5. He is 13 for 42 with five multi-hit performances, five runs, four RBI and two stolen bases in his last 10 games. He owns a .302/.341/.407 stat line on the season.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
