Scooter Gennett comes up with key late hit


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Brewers infielder Scooter Gennett started his fourth game in five opportunities Saturday, in a 7-6 win over the Red Sox.

Gennett snapped a two-game hitless streak with his two-hit performance, and he drove in a run with each. The biggest came in the 11th inning, as he drove in the game-winning run. He also struck out three times as he finished the game 2 for 6 overall.

Gennett is hitting .286 with four hits in 14 at-bats, scoring one run and driving in two.  


Scooter Gennett gets the starting nod Monday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2014) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett was listed in the team's starting lineup Monday against the Braves. 

Rickie Weeks outplayed Gennett during spring training, but the team will turn to Gennett with a righty on the mound. While it's just one game, it's starting to look like manager Ron Roenicke may utilize a strict platoon.

Gennett hit .324/.356/.479 in 213 at-bats last year.


Brewers unsure how second-base competition will play out


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2014) While early reports have held Scooter Gennett as the favorite to win the Brewers' second-base job over Rickie Weeks, manager Ron Roenicke told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel he's not sure yet how the situation will play out this spring.

"We're not exactly sure what's going to happen there. We have an idea. It's nice to have a couple of options there," he said. "Rick needs to get back where he was in 2011 and before. I'm hoping he can bounce back and be that guy again. If he does, then he makes it really tough on us.

"Last year, I thought the system worked really well. The first time we brought Scooter up, we platooned them and they both produced. I'm not saying it's going to be a platoon situation. If Scooter comes into camp and shows what he did last year; we liked his defense, also. He showed he can really hit. So, going into it, we're looking at two guys who we feel both can start in the big leagues. If it ends up being a platoon, fine."


Scooter Gennett has edge on second base job


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2013) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett has the edge over Rickie Weeks for the second base job.

General manager Doug Melvin confirmed the news in an end of the season press conference. Gennett received an extended audition for the position at the end of the season. He hit .324/.356/.479 in 213 at-bats. 


Brewers rest Scooter Gennett against a lefty


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/23/2013) For the first time in 16 games, the Brewers left Scooter Gennett out of the starting lineup. However, it is only the second time over that stretch that the Brewers were set to oppose a left-handed starting pitcher, as Mike Minor is scheduled to take the mound for the Braves on Monday.

MLB.com had reported last week that the Brewers were going to let Gennett bat more often against lefties over the season's final games. Gennett is 2 for 30 (.067) against lefties so far this season.


Don't count on Scooter Gennett down the stretch


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/9/2013) As a minor league prospect, Scooter Gennett was an aggressive slap hitter who was good at making contact. He's become even more aggressive in his first season as a major leaguer, yet his contact skills have eroded. So what gives with his .331 batting average?

Gennett is in the midst of a serious hot streak with the Brewers. He has hit .389 over his last 29 games, even though he has struck out 20 times in 95 at-bats. While he has propelled his line drive rate higher since early August, that doesn't fully explain Gennett's jaw-dropping .451 batting average on balls in play.

Especially given his strikeout rate, Gennett's batting average looks due to plummet. He's also unlikely to maintain the surprisingly robust home run pace he is on -- Gennett has launched six homers in 142 at-bats this season. Half of those were on line drives, and maintaining that kind of pace relying on line drive power seems unlikely. Outside of very deep Fantasy leagues, you can probably find someone more productive to start at second base this week.


Scooter Gennett hits sixth home run


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2013) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett hit a pinch-hit home run Friday against the Cubs.

Gennett's homer was a three-run blast in the eighth inning. After hitting just three home runs in 321 Triple-A at-bats, Gennett has six in just 135 major league at-bats. Gennett is hitting .333/.371/.541.


Three hits for Scooter Gennett


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2013) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett remained hot with a three-hit night Saturday against Anaheim.

Gennett finished 3 for 4 with a double and two runs scored. He is hitting .347/.383/.540 in his first 124 major league at-bats with five home runs. He is riding a six-game hitting streak and has raised his average 24 points over that stretch.


Scooter Gennett stays hot in win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2013) Making his third appearance atop the Brewers lineup Thursday, second baseman Scooter Gennett went 3 for 4 and scored a run in his team's 4-0 win over the Pirates.

After struggling a little in his first exposure to the majors in June, Gennett has excelled since returning to the team in late July, hitting .386/.421/.629 with four home runs and nine RBI in 70 at-bats. He was 6 for 12 and scored three runs in his team's series against the Pirates.


Scooter Gennett showing his true colors?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/28/2013) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett was always a curious prospect to me. Publications like Baseball America have long hyped him as a potential successor to Rickie Weeks -- and because of his bat, not his glove -- but his minor-league numbers were as ordinary as can be. Sure, he hit .297 in parts of four seasons, but with minimal power and poor plate discipline. A .745 OPS against inferior competition does not inspire much confidence in me.

So how do I explain his .411 (23 for 56) batting average, four home runs and 1.094 OPS in 16 games since taking over for an injured Weeks? I can't, really. I mean, he has only two doubles during that stretch, and he'll presumably need more than that when his batting average normalizes, but the ease with which he's taken to full-time big-league duty only adds to the curiosity.

I'll use an example I've used before: Martin Prado compiled a .743 OPS over his minor-league career, and he hasn't stopped hitting since reaching the majors, only getting stronger and more patient over the course of time. I'd bet against Gennett ever becoming as valuable as he is, but given the favorable scouting reports, I'm inclined to take him seriously and would rather gamble on him than a slumping Nick Franklin at this crucial stage of the season.


Manager wants Scooter Gennett to show more patience


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2013) Brewers rookie second baseman Scooter Gennett hit leadoff Sunday against the Reds for just the second time this season. While manager Ron Roenicke has been pleased with Gennett's effort, he said the rookie needs to show more patience to develop into a dependable leadoff hitter.

"His batting average is basically going to carry his on-base [percentage]," Roenicke said, referring to Gennett's lack of walks, per MLB.com. "But I see things getting better with him, and I think for him to be successful in the major leagues, he's going to have to start swinging at the pitch he wants to swing at. He's a good hitter. The problem with good hitters is they think they can hit any pitch. These guys, they've got pretty good stuff, so if you want to go up there and just swing the bat at everything, you're going to have a tough time here."


Scooter Gennett leading off Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2013) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is in the leadoff spot Wednesday against the Cardinals.

With Rickie Weeks hurt, and Norichika Aoki out of the lineup, Gennett will have an opportunity to hit at the top of the order. He's hitting .322/.372/.540 in 87 at-bats. 


Scooter Gennett has impressive August slash line


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2013) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett managed an RBI single during Tuesday's 6-3 win against the Cardinals. He also scored a run, walked once and struck out.

Gennett has failed to record a hit in two of 14 August games. He's batting .439 (18 for 41) with a .756 slugging percentage, 1.245 OPS, one triple, two doubles, three home runs and seven RBI in August.


Skipper doesn't want Scooter Gennett swinging for the fences


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2013) Brewers infielder Scooter Gennett's move up from ninth to seventh in the order might have something to do with his three home runs in four games, manager Ron Roenicke doesn't want the 23-year-old focusing on power.

"He's just not a guy that you want to think about hitting home runs," Roenicke told MLB.com. "If he decides to hit line drives and once in a while he gets one, great, but I think there's a lot of people who think this guy can hit, so it's nice seeing him do well."

Gennett has four home runs in 70 at-bats on the season, but has not had to rely on power for his recent success. Gennett is in the midst of a seven-game hitting streak, during which time he has four multi-hit games, including Wednesday against the Rangers. 

Gennett had just three home runs in 349 Triple-A at-bats prior to his call up. 


Scooter Gennett an unlikely source of power


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/14/2013) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett had his first career two-homer game Tuesday, giving him three homers in his last three games.

So in the span of 11 at-bats, the rookie has connected for as many home runs as he had in 321 at-bats at Triple-A Nashville. That's the Pacific Coast League, by the way, where hitter's parks abound.

As you might expect, I'm not predicting too many home runs from Gennett the rest of the way, and yet I hesitate to dismiss Tuesday's performance as a total fluke. No, he hasn't shown glimpses of power in the minors, but he hasn't shown glimpses of anything. And despite that, the scouts have always loved him, describing him as a plus hitter and potential starter for the Brewers. A career .745 OPS in the minors goes a long way these days, I guess.

Of course, Martin Prado had a career .743 OPS in the minors, and he has certainly mattered in Fantasy. Clearly, Gennett wouldn't be the first to improve with that last big step up the ladder. With favorable scouting reports backing him up, I'm at least keeping an eye on him.


Scooter Gennett has first career multi-HR game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2013) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett enjoyed his first career multi-home run game Tuesday night against the Rangers.

Gennett launched a solo shot in the third and a two-run bomb in the fifth to give Milwaukee the lead. He finished 2 for 4 with two runs scored and three RBI in a 5-1 win.

Gennett has homered three times and has plated six runs over his last three games. He has a .284/.324/.552 slash line in 63 at-bats.

Scooter Gennett homers in win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2013) Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett, who is expected to see regular playing time at second base with Rickie Weeks out for the remainder of the season, went 2 for 4 with one home run, two runs and three RBI in his team's 10-0 win over the Mariners Saturday.

Gennett has posted back-to-back 2-for-4 games as the Brewers have scored 10 runs in two straight. Gennett owns a .267/.313/.467 line with two home runs and eight RBI in 60 at-bats.


Scooter Gennett expected to be called up


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2013) With Rickie Weeks on the disabled list, the Brewers are expected to recall infielder Scooter Gennett from Triple-A Nashville prior to Friday's game against the Mariners in Seattle, the Journal Sentinel reports.

Gennett has a .280/.327/.371 with three homers and 22 RBI in 321 at-bats in the minors. He hit .231 with one home run and five RBI in 52 at-bats in the majors.

Scooter Gennett optioned to Triple-A


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2013) The Brewers have optioned infielder Scooter Gennett to the minors Wednesday.

With Marco Estrada coming back from the disabled list, someone needed to be sent down. Gennett saw his playing time dwindle in recent weeks, and was a strong candidate to be sent down. In the minors, he should receive regular playing time. 

Gennett hit .231/.286/.404 in 52 at-bats.


Rickie Weeks, Scooter Gennett to platoon at second base


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2013) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Saturday that infielders Rickie Weeks and Scooter Gennett will platoon at second base while Gennett remains with the team, MLB.com reports.

"What we're going to do is just match up," Roencike said. "So, we're going to do that for a while, and then we'll see what happens."

Weeks has hit .161/.254/.304 in 56 at-bats since the All-Star break, while Gennett is 1 for 5 with a walk since rejoining the Brewers Tuesday. All but five of Gennett's 47 at-bats with the Brewers have come against right-handed pitchers, while Weeks has performed better against lefties this season.


Brewers recall Scooter Gennett for doubleheader


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2013) The Brewers recalled infielder Scooter Gennett from Triple-A Nashville for Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cubs. Gennett hit .214 with one home run and five RBI in 17 games with Milwaukee earlier this season.

Scooter Gennett sent down


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2013) The Brewers optioned infielder Scooter Gennett to Triple-A Nashville following Wednesday's game against the Cubs. Gennett hit .214 with one home run and five RBI in 16 games in the majors.

Scooter Gennett records a lot of firsts Friday


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2013) Brewers infielder Scooter Gennett recorded the first multiple-hit game of his career Friday at Cincinnati. Gennett never had two hits in a game before amassing three Friday.

Gennett went 3 for 5 with a double, home run and RBI. The solo homer was also the first of his career, as was the double.

The 23-year-old Gennett is now 6 for 23 (.261) to open his big-league career. He's starting to heat up with hits in his last two appearances.

Scooter Gennett just an NL-only option


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2013) A .376 slugging percentage. That's all the Brewers' Scooter Gennett could muster in the heavy-hitting Pacific Coast League before his promotion to the majors Monday. Sure, he made good contact, producing another high batting average that brings him to .300 for his minor-league career, but from a player who isn't going to compete for the league lead in steals, Fantasy owners need at least some pop.

Maybe in time, Gennett will develop into another Omar Infante type, offering just enough gap power to factor in Fantasy, but most likely not as a rookie in a platoon role.

Even at the weak second base position, you can ignore him in mixed leagues.


Scooter Gennett added to major-league roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2013) The Brewers promoted second baseman Scooter Gennett from Triple-A Nashville to the major-league roster Monday. The 2009 16th-round pick hit .297 with one home run, three triples, seven doubles and 13 RBI in 50 games for Nashville.

Gennett entered the season as the Brewers' sixth-best prospect, according to MLB.com.
