Milwaukee Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett was not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 26, against Colorado Rockies SP Christian Friedrich, and manager Ron Roenicke gave no indication that he would change the platoon rotation that has Gennett starting against righties and 2B Rickie Weeks starting against lefties.
Fantasy Tip: Gennett did pinch hit later in the game and hit a home run, boosting his average to .311 in what has been an excellent season at the plate overall. That being said, his value is going to continue to be curbed in standard formats unless he can shake his platoon status.
