Scooter Gennett 2B MIL 10 Days

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Tuesday that once he chooses between Gennett and Carlos Gomez as the leadoff hitter, he will stick with that player, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

If Roenicke ultimately chooses Gennett, it's unclear whether the second baseman would keep the leadoff role against lefties. Either way, Gennett is expected to see more at-bats against southpaws this year, after recording just 39 in 2014. While the sample size is obviously quite limited, Gennett owns a .128/.150/.141 slash line in 78 career at-bats against lefties, with a 24:1 K:BB ratio. Owners will want to closely monitor his early-season results against southpaws.

Gennett started at second base and hit out of the leadoff spot in the Brewers' first three spring games.

The Brewers' batting order is hardly settled, but early indications point to Gennett serving as the team's leadoff hitter if Carlos Gomez does not. Besides getting a chance atop the order this spring, Gennett is also seeing at-bats against left-handers -- something he did just 39 times last season. He has responded with two hits thus far, which bodes well for his chances of seeing regular action against lefties -- and righties of course -- when the regular season kicks off.

Brewers managed Ron Roenicke suggested Gennett could get a chance to serve as the everyday second baseman in 2015, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. "The guy can hit," Roenicke said. "There's no reason why [he] shouldn't be a good hitter vs both [left-handers and right-handers]."

Gennett was deployed in a platoon at the keystone with Rickie Weeks last season, playing almost exclusively against right-handed pitching. He logged just 39 at-bats against lefties all year and recorded a mere four hits (.103 average). It sounds like Roenicke may give Gennett a look in the everyday role in spring training and perhaps into the regular season, but it seems likely Gennett will end up being shielded heavily from southpaws once again. Elian Herrera and Luis Jimenez are the current top candidates to be his platoon partner.

Gennett (quad) remains out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs.

Gennett will miss his fifth straight game Sunday as a result of the quad ailment, as he would typically receive the starting nod with a right-handed pitcher on the mound. Manager Ron Roenicke will elect to go with Elian Herrera at the keystone in his stead.

Gennett (quad) is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Cubs.

Gennett likely would have been held out Saturday even if he was healthy with the Cubs starting southpaw Tsuyoshi Wada, but will miss his third straight game. Rickie Weeks will get another start at second base in Gennett's place.

Gennett (quad) is not in the lineup Friday against the Cubs.

Gennett missed Thursday's game because of a sore right quad, and it appears it will keep him out again. Rickie Weeks will start at second base again Friday and will bat second for the Brewers.

Gennett's absence from the lineup Thursday is the result of a sore right quad, the Associated Press reports.

The injury has limited Gennett intermittently for months, which has opened up the occasional stretch of playing time against right-handed pitching for Rickie Weeks, who will get the nod at second base again Thursday afternoon. Gennett is day-to-day with the ailment, while his availability for the final days of the regular season may hinge on the Brewers' ability to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.

Gennett is not in the lineup Saturday against the Reds.

A long series of opposing right-handed pitchers kept Gennett in the lineup for each of the Brewers' first 12 games to begin September, but he'll turn second base over to Rickie Weeks with lefty David Holmberg starting for Cincinnati.
