Gennett is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Padres.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gennett made his return from the disabled list Thursday night, but the Brewers seem alright with easing him back into action and giving him the night off Friday. Aaron Hill will slide over to second base to fill in for him, while Hernan Perez takes over at the hot corner.

Gennett will hit second in the Brewers' batting order for Thursday's game against the Padres.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Jonathan Villar did a good job batting near the top of the order while Gennett was on the disabled list, but Gennett will immediately reclaim the two spot in the Brewers' order against right-handed pitchers. Gennett owns just one start against a southpaw this season, so while he will see most of the starts at the keystone, the team figures to continue employing a platoon at second base.

Gennett (oblique) was reinstated from the 15-day disabled list Thursday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After a brief rehab stint at High-A Brevard County, Gennett has been activated from the disabled list in advance of Thursday's game against the Padres. It's unclear if he'll be immediately reinserted into the lineup Thursday, but if he is, Aaron Hill will likely slide over to third base while Gennett takes back over at second. The Brewers optioned Yadiel Rivera to Triple-A Colorado Springs in a corresponding move Thursday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After recently getting a chance to hit on the field, Gennett appears to have made enough progress to see some live game action. If all goes well for the second baseman, an activation at the end of this week or early next could be in store.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Milwaukee kicks off a four-game set with the Reds on Thursday before heading to Miami for a three-game series against the Marlins.

Gennett (oblique) could be activated from the disabled list when first eligible Tuesday, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Brewers originally thought Gennett would be sidelined for longer than the minimum 15 days required by his placement on the disabled list, but it appears he now has a shot to rejoin the team next week. Gennett will resume his role as the Brewers' primary second baseman against right-handed pitchers whenever he is back on the roster.

Gennett (oblique) was placed on the 15-day DL on Thursday due to tightness in his right oblique.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gennett began experiencing tightness during batting practice Tuesday, which led to him subsequently being scratched from Tuesday's lineup. He was also excluded from Wednesday's lineup, though the matchup against the Cubs was ultimately rained out. After further evaluation, Gennett will require more than a few days to recover, so he'll head to the DL, and the Brewers have recalled infielder Hernan Perez from Triple-A Colorado Springs to take his place on the 25-man roster.
