SCOOTER GENNETT RUMORS

Scooter Gennett Can Hit Lefties

Each of the past three years in Spring Training, there has issued forth from Maryvale Baseball Park a repeated refrain: Scooter Gennett plans to play every day. This has always been an easily dismissed notion: entering the season, Gennett was the worst MLB hitter of all time against lefties, measuring by OPS: he owned a .297 mark over 119 plate appearances. All 31 players with a...

Scooter Gennett Takes Walks Now

Once a player has played for a couple seasons or so at the major-league level, we can conclusively say some things about their abilities, and their shortcomings. With a large enough sample, the Dennis Green Rule goes into effect: Players will be who we thought they were. Jimmy Nelson, for instance, will probably always struggle against left-handers, who have a .308 multi-year...

Scooter Gennett on Hitting (But Not Pitchers’ Pitches)

Late last summer, Scooter Gennett talked about how improving his plate discipline would make him a more productive hitter. He echoed those words when I spoke to him a few weeks ago. The 25-year-old Brewers second baseman feels better selectivity will result in a higher one-base percentage and, hopefully, more extra-base hits. Yesterday, Gennett went 2 for 3 with a home run — off...

Scooter Gennett: A Brewer’s Quest for Discipline

Scooter Gennett came into the season with a .300 batting average in 704 big-league plate appearance. The stat obviously has limited value, but it does suggest an ability to put a bat on a baseball. Gennett excels at it, sometimes to his detriment. The 25-year-old second baseman puts a lot of balls in play. His Z-Contact% as a Milwaukee Brewer is 91.9 and his O-Contact% is 74. Both...

Scooter Gennett Demoted from Kids Club?

With Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett’s recent demotion to Triple-A Colorado Springs, the diminutive player also may have lost his place as the face of the team’s “Kids Club.” Earlier this month an email was sent out advertising the benefits of the Kids Club, which does have its merits to be sure.  It’s interesting, though, that after being prominently featured in...

Brewers' Scooter Gennett shares photo of nasty shower injury

By Gordon Dixon The Brewers are off to a 2-10 start, their worst in franchise history. To say things aren’t going well would be an understatement. To make matters worse, second baseman Scooter Gennett missed Monday’s game against the Reds due to a laceration on his left hand. The injury occurred after Sunday’s game versus the Pirates while Gennett was in the shower. He supplied...

It’s not going too well for the Milwaukee Brewers. The team has the worst record in baseball at 2-10, and now they’re going to be without second baseman Scooter Gennett for a few days because of a hand injury. That hand injury?

Milwaukee Brewers will go for sweep tomorrow

The Milwaukee Brewers have dominated their three game series with the Los Angeles Dodgers thus far, taking the first two games in exciting fashion. The first game, which I was privileged to attend in Miller Park, was an emotional roller coaster for myself and the other 37,000 Brewers fans. Kyle Lohse took to the mound against Roberto Hernandez, formerly known as Fausto Carmona, and...

Brewers Tuesday: Gennett's return to lineup still undecided

MILWAUKEE -- Out of the lineup for the 10th time in Milwaukee's last 15 games, second baseman Scooter Gennett is happy with the way his right quadriceps injury has progressed over the past two days. Gennett left Saturday night's game in St. Louis after re-aggravating the injury while trying to break up a double play. He returned to the starting lineup last Monday after not starting...
