Gennett agreed to a one-year, $2.525 million contract with the Brewers on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gennett will receive a nice raise (from $518,100 in 2016) in his first year of arbitration eligibility. He put up his typical, serviceable numbers against righties in 2016, and while he was better against lefties, he will likely be strictly platooned again in 2017. That should keep him off the mixed-league radar for most.

Gennett went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer run in the first inning Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Gennett's first-inning blast off of Chase Anderson was all the Brewers needed to get up early and then close out the game. He now has 14 homers and 54 RBIs on the season, which aren't great numbers but are respectable for a second-baseman. He has hit safely in seven of his last eight games and is batting over .300 for the month of September.

Gennett is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Gennett has been scorching hot as of late, posting a 1.103 OPS with three home runs and nine RBI over the past two weeks, but he'll get the night off with left-hander Steven Brault toeing the rubber for Pittsburgh. Jonathan Villar will slide over to second base to fill in for him while Hernan Perez takes over at the hot corner to round out the infield.

Gennett went with an RBI ground rule double, a second two-bagger and four runs in Saturday's 11-3 victory over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

The second baseman crossed the plate courtesy of Ryan Braun on three occasions alone, while also plating Jonathan Villar with a sixth-inning ground rule double to ignite a Brewers rally. Gennett has now hit safely in eight of his last nine games and has seven RBI over his last four contests.

Gennett went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Gennett's seventh-inning blast off John Lackey snapped a 2-2 tie, his second round-tripper in the least three days. The 26-year-old has hit safely in seven of the last eight games and has six RBI in his last three contests. He's totaled a career-high 13 homers to date in 2016, and is now just three RBI short of equaling his career-best figure of 54 set back in 2014.

Gennett is not in the lineup for Thurday's series opener against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

This marks the third day in a row Gennett will cede the start at second base to Hernan Perez, although it's worth noting that the Brewers are facing a left-handed pitcher for the second game in a row in Jaime Garcia. With that in mind, there's a decent chance Gennett could return to the lineup Friday when right-hander Carlos Martinez toes the rubber for St. Louis.
