Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI in a 15-1 win over the Seattle Mariners Thursday, March 26.
Fantasy Tip: Gennett could end up hitting at the top of Milwaukee's lineup, but regardless of where he is slotted, he is a solid mid-round fantasy pick. However, he does struggle against lefties, and he should only be used at FantasyScore against right-handed pitching.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez and 2B Scooter Gennett are manager Ron Roenicke's options at the leadoff spot this year. If Gomez doesn't hit atop the order, he'd likely bat fifth.
Fantasy Tip: Either way, Gomez is a candidate for a mid-round fantasy selection in the first round of drafts in 2015 because of the production he can give you across the board. Hitting in the middle of the order would significantly increase his RBI chances, but it might also hurt his chances of scoring runs.

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett signed a contract for 2015 with the Brewers Tuesday, March 3. The Brewers set Tuesday as their deadline for players ineligible for arbitration to sign or have their contract renewed at a salary of the team's choosing.
Fantasy Tip: An increase in plate appearances this year for Gennett is a near certainty with 2B Rickie Weeks signing to play for the Seattle Mariners this offseason. Gennett's batting average will probably dip with increased exposure to left-handed pitchers -- he struggles against them -- but an increase in the rest of his production will more than offset the drop. He's a fringe starter at second base in standard mixed leagues and a solid option in FantasyScore contests when facing most right-handed pitchers.
