Brewers GM Gord Ash said Tuesday that Gennett (hand) should be ready to return from the DL after the minimum 15 days, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Stitches were required to close a cut on Gennett's knuckles, suffered in a shower accident Sunday, leading to his placement on the 15-day DL. The Brewers think he'll be ready to return May 5 when first eligible, but in the meantime, they will have to lean heavily on Hector Gomez and Elian Herrera at second base.

The Brewers placed Gennett on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, retroactive to Apr. 20, with a left hand laceration.

Gennett was hoping to return to action by Wednesday, but his injury is worse than originally thought, and he will not play again until May. Elian Herrera was called up to take Gennett's spot on the roster and will likely see some action at second base, but Hector Gomez figures to be the Brewers' primary second baseman until Gennett is able to return.

Gennett (finger) is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Reds.

Gennett will sit out Monday's game -- and he could miss another day or two -- after cutting his finger following Sunday's contest. Hector Gomez will get the start at second base Monday in Gennett's place.

Gennett, who suffered a gash on one of his knuckles Sunday, hopes to return to action by Wednesday.

Gennett has not been ruled out for Monday's game and feels he could play, so it's possible the injury may not cost him any action. However, his comments indicate he could get at least one day to recover. If Gennett does end up missing time, Hector Gomez would likely handle the second-base duties until he is ready to play again.

Gennett suffered a gash on one of his knuckles Sunday that may require stitches, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

There was no indication of the injury during Sunday's game, but Gennett should be considered day-to-day at this point. The club may issue an update on his status at some point, but if not, his presence (or lack thereof) in Monday's lineup should be indicated.

Gennett is back in the lineup for Monday's game against the Cardinals.

Gennett was held out the last two days for a number of reasons -- a slow start, his ejection Friday, and Hector Gomez's showing in his place -- but he will return to action Monday afternoon. Gennett will man second base and bat eighth against Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright.

Gennett is not in Sunday's lineup for Milwaukee's game against the Pirates.

The Pirates are starting Casey Sadler, a right-hander who had a 7.84 ERA last season, so if the left-handed Gennett was going to be given a bounce-back start, this was it. It's looking more likely Gennett was stung a little more than the team let on when he got hit by a pitch from Jeff Locke Friday, but that's just speculation.

Gennett is out of the lineup Saturday against the Pirates.

Gennett will find himself on the bench against right-hander Vance Worley after a 1-for-13 start to his season. Hector Gomez will man second base and bat eighth. Jeff Locke hit Gennett with a pitch in the bottom of the sixth inning Friday, but Gennett stayed in the game and the team has not yet indicated his absence Saturday is related, though it could very well be.

Gennett will hit eighth in Tuesday's game against the Rockies after hitting seventh in Monday's season opener, Andrew Gruman of FOX Sports Wisconsin reports.

With fellow left-handed hitter Gerardo Parra starting in right field -- in place of the injured Ryan Braun (side) -- and hitting sixth, Gennett will trade places in the lineup with Jean Segura to prevent the lefties from hitting back-to-back. Braun is not expected to be out long, but with Parra expected to see most of the starts in his place, Gennett may continue to hit eighth against right-handers until Braun is back in action.
