    Brewers place 2B Scooter Gennett on DL, make minor moves

    The injury-ravaged and floundering Brewers have placed second baseman Scooter Gennett on the disabled list with a left hand laceration. Four of their top position players are down. His problem has festered since cutting his hand in the shower. The original diagnosis was that he was to likely miss two games. He's expected to return after his 15 days are up, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Once he returns, he will attempt to improve a .207/.303/.207 slash line. Gennett has six singles all year. The move motivated the Brewers to promote infielder/outfielder Elian Herrera from Triple-A and designate for assignment right-hander Brandon Kintzler.

    Brewers' Kintzler ready to bounce back after injury plagued 2014

    Brewers pitcher Brandon Kintzler was been bit by the injury bug in 2014. Kintzler was forced to go under the knife with a knee injury last year while dealing with a shoulder issue as well, allowing him to pitch just 58 1/3 innings, posting a 3.24 ERA and 31 strikeouts. "My arm hasn't felt this good in a while. It feels live," Kintzler said. "I feel like my alignment, my mechanics, is right where I need it to be." Kintzler also said he wasn't in the right mindset in 2014. "Mentally, I just wasn't right because I was thinking of mechanics so much," said Kintzler, 30. "I had to go 'around' my knee, and as a sinkerballer, I need to get up over that knee. I would throw one really good sinker and go, 'Yeah, that's it.' Then, the next one, my arm couldn't get there, and it's a flat sinker and a homer. That was so frustrating. I couldn't be consistent."
