Brewers | Scooter Gennett to DL

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 08:27:38 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (oblique) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right oblique tightness Thursday, April 28. INF Hernan Perez was recalled from Class AAA Colorado Springs. SP Matt Garza (lat) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett popped four homers in the early going, but he doesn't hold the kind of value to stash him in mixed leagues. Perez isn't worth more than a possible DFS flyer in good matchups.

Brewers | Two Brewers sit Thursday

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 08:13:00 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (oblique) and OF Domingo Santana are out of the lineup Thursday, April 28. SS Jonathan Villar is leading off, OF Alex Presley is second and 2B Yadiel Rivera hits eighth.

Fantasy Tip: None of the three are daily options at face value. Add in the fact that they're facing Jake Arrieta, the hottest pitcher in baseball for the last calendar year, and pass on those three.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett leaves team

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 15:31:44 -0700

Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (oblique) returned to Milwaukee to be examined by the team physician, and the severity of his injury will be announced following the tests.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for an official announcement concerning Gennett's injury. He is a fringe own in the majority of seasonal leagues, but his strong start had his fantasy value on the rise. Yadiel Rivera is a candidate to see the majority of starts at the keystone with Gennett out, but Rivera has just 39 plate appearances at the highest level and should be viewed as a desperation option in all fantasy formats.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett out with oblique injury

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 13:39:17 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (oblique) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 27. SS Yadiel Rivera is starting at second base and batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett is off to an impressive start with 14 runs and a .361 on-base percentage, and he has emerged as a viable option in deep mixed leagues. Check back for updates on his status. Rivera should be viewed as a non-factor in all fantasy formats against Arrieta Wednesday.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett scratched Tuesday

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 16:59:23 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett (undisclosed) was scratched from the lineup Tuesday, April 26. 2B Yadiel Rivera will be inserted in his place at second base, while SS Jonathan Villar moves up to second in the batting order opposite Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett is out to a promising start, already having four home runs, which is nearly as many as he had all of last year (six) in 114 games, so let's hope this isn't something that sidelines him for an extended period. More should be known later in the evening. If he has to miss more time, Rivera would be the biggest beneficiary, but isn't someone worth picking up just yet. Villar would get a boost, too, as an injury to Gennett would regularly place him near the top of the lineup.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett out vs. lefty

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 12:46:19 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins left-handed SP Tommy Milone Wednesday, April 20. SS Yadiel Rivera is starting at the keystone and is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera has only 31 major league at-bats in the last two seasons, and he's hitting .194 with no home runs or RBI in that time. He's at the bottom of the list of infielders to choose from in daily contests.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett producing

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 10:24:13 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett has scored 22.4% of Milwaukee's runs so far this year, which is the highest percentage of runs scored in the National League and third in all of baseball.

Fantasy Tip: This just goes to show that Gennett is off to a fine start in 2016. He's hitting .283 (13-for-46) with three home runs and four RBI. Keep in mind that Gennett hasn't hit more than nine home runs in any one season, so his early power isn't likely to last, and he doesn't steal many bases. Ride him while he's hot now, but don't be fooled that he's anything more than middle infield insurance in NL-only leagues over the long run.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett, Jonathan Lucroy out

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 10:13:05 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett and C Jonathan Lucroy are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Sunday, April 10. C Martin Maldonado will start at catcher and is batting sixth, while SS Yadiel Rivera will start at second base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Maldonado nor Rivera have received many plate appearances this season and should be avoided in all mixed leagues. They could be used in NL-only leagues, but owners in those leagues may be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett taking more free passes

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 13:18:59 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett has walked three times already this season after walking just 12 times through 114 games in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett has been batting second against right-handed pitchers, which keeps him on the fantasy radar in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. However, he'll have to continue to improve on his .294 on-base percentage from 2015 to hold onto the cushy lineup spot. For now, continue to view Gennett as a low-end option at the keystone.

Brewers | Scooter Gennett's role undecided

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 12:06:19 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett, who has hit just .124 (14-for-113) with a .297 OPS against lefties in his career, is unsure if he'll be involved in a platoon at second base this year, and manager Craig Counsell hasn't committed one way or another. Gennett is hitting .462 (12-for-26) with a .500 on-base percentage and 1.538 OPS with three doubles, four home runs and seven RBI in spring play, including five hits in eight at-bats against lefties.

Fantasy Tip: Gennett showed bad trends in his walk and contact rates in 2015, and he's never had much power. He'd probably be more valuable to those in deep NL-only leagues if he only faced right-handers.
