Brewers option 2B Scooter Gennett to Triple-A


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/18/2015) Slumping second baseman Scooter Gennett was shipped to Triple-A Colorado Springs by the Brewers on Monday, the team announced. He will be replaced on the roster by pitcher Corey Knebel

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 scratch Jean Segura with pinky finger soreness


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2015) Brewers leadoff hitter and infielder Jean Segura was scratched with soreness in his right pinky finger on Wednesday against the White, per the team's official website. With Segura sidelined, manager Craig Counsell moved Elian Herrera to the leadoff spot. Scooter Gennett was also included in the lineup at the No. 8 spot.

Segura is hitting .262 (33 for 126) with two homers and 12 RBI this season.

Milwaukee is favored (-125) at home against Chicago, per VegasInsider.com.


Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett sitting again on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/13/2015) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is out of the starting lineup for the second straight game on Wednesday. No injury has been reported, so it appears that manager Craig Counsell is just trying to get Gennett some rest after recently returning from a stint on the disabled list.

Hector Gomez will fill in at second once again and bat eighth.


Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett gets day off Tuesday vs. White Sox


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/12/2015) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is out of the starting lineup for Tuesday's matchup with the White Sox. Gennett has started six of the eight games since returning from the disabled list on May 5. He has struggled since then, however, recording just four hits including a home run, over that span.

Hector Gomez is starting at second base Tuesday while batting eighth. Jean Segura, who was rested on Monday, returns to the starting lineup at shortstop while batting leadoff.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Brewers' Scooter Gennett batting second Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett has been moved to the No. 2 spot in the batting order for Wednesday's matchup with the Dodgers.

Gennett returned from the disabled list Tuesday and went 1 for 3 while batting sixth, but with Tuesday's No. 2 hitter Gerardo Parra on the bench in favor of Khris Davis, Gennett is making his first start in the top third of the lineup this season. He has hit .219/.306/.219 in 32 at-bats.

The Brewers are home underdogs (+108) against the Dodgers Wednesday, per VegasInsider.com.


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.


Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (hand) must prove he's ready before return


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett (hand) will be eligible to return from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday, but manager Ron Roenicke said he'll have to prove he's healthy and ready to play before he'll see action with the big club, reports JSOnline.com.

Gennett, who was placed on the DL after suffering a deep laceration to his left hand, is currently on a Class-A rehab assignment.

“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' Scooter Gennett (hand) begins rehab assignment


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett (hand) began a rehab assignment with Class A Wisconsin Friday, going 1 for 3 with a run and a stolen base.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Brewers' Scooter Gennett (hand) taking swings Sunday


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

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.


Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett cuts finger while showering, out two days


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett joined the list of odd baseball injuries Monday. Gennett cut the top of his left hand while reaching for shampoo in the shower after Sunday's game in Pittsburgh on the shower caddy holding his cleaning products, according to his Instagram account.

Gennett said he hopes to be back in the lineup for Wednesday's game after the bleeding stops.

Manager Ron Roenicke did not rule out the possibility of a DL stint if Gennett's situation lingers, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

He is hitting .207 with one RBI in 29 at-bats this season.


Brewers' Ryan Braun bats leadoff for first time in career


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun was slotted in the leadoff position in the team's starting lineup on Saturday, the first time in his career he's batted leadoff. 

The Brewers' lineup had other major changes on Saturday. Martin Maldonado will bat seventh and catch, in just his fourth game of 2015. Regular catcher Jonathan Lucroy replaces Adam Lind at first base. 

"Trying to do something different, getting [Braun] sparked," Roenicke said to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He's had better at-bats, but just to get his mind off some things and maybe on something else. Then also, I think he is swinging the bat better. He's just not getting hits. Put him in a little different atmosphere. Hopefully he can get on base for us and have the other guys drive him in."

Hector Gomez gets the start at second base, batting sixth. He replaces Scooter Gennett

Logan Schaefer is in center field, batting eighth. It will be his first start of the season.


Brewers' Scooter Gennett back in starting lineup Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is in the starting lineup for the first time in three games Monday.

Gennett was ejected after slamming his bat after a strikeout Friday, and as the team didn't have a reserve infielder left on the bench, Carlos Gomez had to come in and play second. Manager Ron Roenicke didn't use Gennett at all Saturday and kept him out of the starting lineup Sunday, though the second baseman did enter the game in the seventh inning and finished 1 for 2.

Gennett is 2 for 15 with seven strikeouts and has been hit twice by pitches. The Brewers are heavy underdogs (+165) against the Cardinals Monday.


Brewers' Lucroy, Gennett not in starting lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy and second baseman Scooter Gennett are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.

Lucroy is getting a break from starting Sunday after opening the season just 1 for 20, and Martin Maldonado will take his spot behind the plate. Manager Ron Roenicke said he isn't worried about Lucroy's slow start, the Journal Sentinel reports.

"Luc has had some good at-bats," Roenicke said Sunday. "He stayed on a breaking ball and hit a bullet to second yesterday. The day before he lined out to short. So he’s had some good at-bats. The first couple days he was lost, then he started swinging the bat again. I like what he’s doing."

With Lucroy out of the lineup, Jean Segura will move to the No. 2 slot, and the manager indicated that Segura's early-season performance made his choice for the spot easy.

"The way he’s been swinging it, yeah," Roenicke said. "Other than that, I don’t what I would have done. Sometimes you slip in a Khris Davis or somebody else. But Seggy, the way he’s swinging, he’s perfect."

Gennett is out of the lineup for the second straight game after getting ejected Friday for slamming his bat to the ground on a called strike three when the team had no backup infielders on the bench. Hector Gomez will get a second straight start at second base after going 2 for 3 Saturday.

The Brewers are favorites (-120) against the Pirates Sunday.


Brewers' Scooter Gennett out due to frustration with ejection


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is not in the starting lineup Saturday due to frustration with his ejection from Friday's game, manager Ron Roenicke said per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Hector Gomez will replace him at second. Gennett was ejected from Friday's game after throwing his bat down in frustration after a called strike on an attempted check swing. He is struggling so far at the plate this season, going just 1 for 13 with six strikeouts.

"I don't need [an explanation], I know why," Gennett said to MLB.com. "I let my frustrations get the best of me last night, and I apologize. I kind of lost track of how many guys we had left on the bench. That's something I don't really focus on; I focus more on hitting the ball. The one thing I felt worse about was doing that to my team."


Brewers' Adam Lind, Scooter Gennett get to play vs. LHP


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke will give left-handed batters Adam Lind and Scooter Gennett the chance to play against southpaw starters. 

Both players have platooned for most of their careers, only matching up against right-handers. 

"It’s probably going to be pitcher by pitcher," Roenicke said, per the Journal Sentinel. "They’ll show me whether they should stay in there or we should make a chance. So if it’s a really tough left-hander on a lefty, I probably wouldn’t do this."


Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez to leadoff on Opening Day


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Gomez and Gennett were competing throughout camp to see who would end up as the leadoff hitter in the lineup. Gomez has hit leadoff in 106 of 148 games, posting a .276/.356/.488 slash line with 20 home runs and 50 RBI.

Brewers' Roenicke chooses Carlos Gomez to bat leadoff


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) 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.
