Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett signed a contract for 2015 with the Brewers Tuesday, March 3. The Brewers set Tuesday as their deadline for players ineligible for arbitration to sign or have their contract renewed at a salary of the team's choosing.
Fantasy Tip: An increase in plate appearances this year for Gennett is a near certainty with 2B Rickie Weeks signing to play for the Seattle Mariners this offseason. Gennett's batting average will probably dip with increased exposure to left-handed pitchers -- he struggles against them -- but an increase in the rest of his production will more than offset the drop. He's a fringe starter at second base in standard mixed leagues and a solid option in FantasyScore contests when facing most right-handed pitchers.
