SCOOTER GENNETT RUMORS

MILWAUKEE -- Scooter Gennett and Jonathan Villar each hit a two-run single in a five-run eighth inning that sent the Milwaukee Brewers to a 9-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. With the score tied at 4, the Brewers batted around and broke the game open on three hits and four walks against Arizona's bullpen. Hernan Perez singled up the middle off reliever Daniel...

WATCH: Pirates win with help of Brewers error

The Little League World Series is still a few weeks away, but the Pittsburgh Pirates took advantage of the kind of play you usually only see on the Little League diamond. It won them the game in walk-off fashion. With the Pirates and Milwaukee Brewers tied in the bottom of the ninth at 2-2, Josh Harrison got himself into scoring position with a lead-off triple. Of course, that...

Scooter Gennett: Starting 2B

When covering a player’s potential role, it is tempting to see some type of “determinism,” or inevitability, about that role. If a player has some tools and traits that are likely to play into a part time or bench role, it may be difficult for fans and analysts to see that player in any other light. Brewers starting second baseman Scooter Gennett has faced this type of skepticism...

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...

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.

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...
