The Brewers optioned Gennett to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday.

Gennett is hitting .154 and has just one hit since May 8 despite playing regularly at second base, so the Brewers decided to send him down to try and get his confidence back with the bat. Gennett figures to return to Milwaukee at some point this summer, but Elian Herrera and Hector Gomez will share the second base duties for now, just as they did earlier this season while Gennett was on the disabled list with a finger injury.

Gennett is not in the starting lineup Wednesday against White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana.

Hector Gomez will start at second base for the Brewers, as Gennett will continue to be a part of a strict platoon at second base under new manager Craig Counsell.

Gennett is not in the lineup Tuesday against the White Sox.

Gennett is 4-for-24 since his return from the disabled list, but will sit in favor of Hector Gomez with tough lefty Chris Sale on the mound for the opposing White Sox. Gomez owns a .700 OPS over 14 at-bats against lefties this year, and another strong performance could force manager Craig Counsell to consider using a platoon at second base.

Gennett is back in the lineup Sunday against the Cubs.

Gennett took a seat in favor of Hector Gomez on Saturday due to lefty Travis Wood on the mound for the Cubs, but will return to the keystone Sunday with the right-handed Kyle Hendricks on the hill.

Gennett is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.

Gennett will take the field for the Brewers on Tuesday for the first time since Apr. 19. He got off to a slow start this season, but figures to at least start regularly at second base against right-handers. On Tuesday, Gennett will do just that and hit sixth against Dodgers starter Zack Greinke.

Gennett (hand) was reinstated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday.

As expected, Gennett will rejoin the Brewers for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, after going 4-for-15 during a rehab assignment at Low-A Wisconsin. With right-handed Zack Greinke slated to pitch for Los Angeles, there's little doubt Gennett will be in the starting lineup.

Gennett (hand) is 3-for-8 (.375) with a double and an RBI through three rehab games with Low-A Wisconsin.

Gennett's hand injury kept him sidelined the last two weeks, but it no longer appears to be an issue. Gennett is scheduled to play one more game with Wisconsin before being activated from the disabled list when first eligible Tuesday.

Gennett (hand) went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored in his first rehab game with Low-A Wisconsin on Friday.

A left hand laceration forced Gennett onto the disabled list just 10 games into the season, but the 25-year-old had his stitches removed and appears on track to be activated when first eligible. The plan is for Gennett to play three more rehab games with Wisconsin.

Gennett (hand) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Friday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Gennett had stitches removed from his hand Wednesday, and he is set to resume playing in games. The plan is for Gennett to play four games with Low-A Wisconsin, and if all goes well, he will likely be activated from the disabled list when first eligible next Tuesday.

Gennett (hand) has been cleared to swing a bat as of Sunday, Andrew Gruman of FOX Sports Wisconsin reports.

Gennett is expected to be "full go" when his stitches are removed next week, as it's already been reported that he should need no more than the minimum 15 days. He should take over as the everyday second baseman upon his return, delegating Hector Gomez (.211) and Elian Herrera (.200) to reserve roles.
