Brewers | Scooter Gennett lands on DL

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 10:07:05 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (hand) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left hand laceration Tuesday, April 21.

Fantasy Tip: Elian Herrera was recalled from the minors to take Gennett's roster spot, and he could split time at the keystone with Hector Gomez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap). Neither player is a viable option at FantasyScore, and opposing pitchers will be attractive against the depleted Brewers roster for the forseeable future.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett could hit DL

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 13:47:15 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (hand) could end up on the disabled list if his hand injury lingers, according to manager Ron Roenicke.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to check back for updates on Gennett's recovery and return timeline. He isn't worth stashing in the majority of formats. Hector Gomez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is expected to receive the majority of starts at the keystone in his absence. Take a wait-and-see approach with Gomez in FantasyScore contests.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett out a couple games

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 13:19:29 -0700

Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (hand) cut the top of his left hand Sunday, April 19. Gennett said he cut his hand in the shower while reaching for body wash. He struck the edge of the metal rack it was resting on and cut his left hand.

Fantasy Tip: The organization has yet to comment on the injury or the expected length of Gennett's ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) absence. So take his own word with a grain of salt. Expect Hector Gomez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) to see the bulk of playing time in his absence, and if he flashes some skills with the twig, he may be a great cheap FantasyScore play. Check back for updates on Gennett's return timeline.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett sitting out vs. Reds

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 13:13:41 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett is not in the starting lineup against the Cincinnati Reds Monday, April 20. 2B/SS Hector Gomez is starting at the keystone and batting eighth Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Gennett ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) from your lineups Monday, and it is worth noting, he is off to a slow start this season with just six hits through his first 33 plate appearances. Expect him to return to the lineup for the next game. Gomez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation flier for FantasyScore players Monday.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett not in lineup

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 09:45:44 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett is not in the starting lineup against the Pittsburgh Pirates Sunday, April 12. 2B Hector Gomez will be the starting second baseman for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is receiving a day off after he started the season with one hit in 13 at-bats, but he should return to the lineup in the next game. Gomez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) may be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore since he has two doubles in three at-bats in 2015.

Brewers | Scooter Gennet picks up three hits

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 19:39:00 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI in a 15-1 win over the Seattle Mariners Thursday, March 26.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett could end up hitting at the top of Milwaukee's lineup, but regardless of where he is slotted, he is a solid mid-round fantasy pick. However, he does struggle against lefties, and he should only be used at FantasyScore against right-handed pitching.

Brewers | Carlos Gomez, Scooter Gennett leadoff options

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 10:27:27 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez and 2B Scooter Gennett are manager Ron Roenicke's options at the leadoff spot this year. If Gomez doesn't hit atop the order, he'd likely bat fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Either way, Gomez is a candidate for a mid-round fantasy selection in the first round of drafts in 2015 because of the production he can give you across the board. Hitting in the middle of the order would significantly increase his RBI chances, but it might also hurt his chances of scoring runs.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett signs contract with MIL

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 17:06:47 -0800

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.

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 09:04:12 -0700
