Gennett put forth a big effort Wednesday in Philadelphia, going 3-for-5 with two doubles, a triple, three RBI and two runs.

Gennett's finally starting to heat up -- over the last week, he's gone 9-for-25 (.360) with two homers and Wednesday's trio of extra-base knocks. While he's still best used as a platoon player against righties, Gennett did hit his triple off Phillies lefty Elvis Araujo.

Gennett is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins.

Gennett has reclaimed the starting role at second base since returning from Triple-A Colorado Springs, but the Brewers will still attempt to shield him from left-handed pitching when the opportunity allows for it. As a result, Gennett will sit Sunday with southpaw Tommy Milone on the mound, clearing the way for Hernan Perez to enter the lineup.

Gennett is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rockies.

Gennett continues to sit against lefties, and that's the case again Sunday with southpaw Chris Rusin on the mound for the Rockies. Hernan Perez will start at second base in his place, batting seventh for the Brewers.

Gennett is out of the lineup Friday against the Rockies.

Gennett struck out three times in four at-bats Thursday, going 0-for-4 and dropping his season batting line to .202/.242/.319. However, he'll likely continue to serve as the everyday second baseman for the Brewers against right-handed pitchers.

Gennett hit his second home run in Tuesday's loss to Kansas City.

Gennett has three multi-hit games since his return June 11 and is hitting a robust .363/.391/.636 in his six games back. Gennett still has to prove he can hit lefties, but it looks like he can still mash against right-handed pitching. He owned an .814 OPS in 695 career plate appearances against righties entering the game.

Gennett is in the lineup Thursday against Washington, batting eighth and playing second base.

Gennett was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs earlier Thursday and will immediately be plugged back into the lineup. He'll be facing right-hander Tanner Roark in his first game back with the Brewers after spending some time down at Triple-A.

Gennett was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday.

Gennett will return to Milwaukee after spending a few weeks in the minors trying to find his swing. He seemingly did just that, posting an .840 OPS in 21 Triple-A contests. Gennett is unlikely to play every day moving forward because he struggles against left-handers, but the Brewers got little production from the second base position in his absence, so he figures to see regular at-bats against right-handers right out of the gate.

Gennett will be recalled Thursday.

Gennett had struggled in May with the Brewers, but has batted .385 with six RBIs in six games with Triple-A Colorado Springs. He will take the place of David Goforth on the roster and could compete for the starting second base position right away.

Gennett is 10-for-26 (.385) with four doubles, a triple, and six RBI through six games with Triple-A Colorado Springs in June.

Gennett has started to pick up the pace with Colorado Springs, and now owns an .840 OPS through 21 games with the club. The Brewers have not said when he will be called back to Milwaukee, but he is doing what he can to force their hand.
