      Brewers' Scooter Gennett: Sitting out Sunday

      Gennett is not in the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Reds. Gennett will take a seat for the second time in the three-game series with the Reds as Cincinnati sends southpaw Brandon Finnegan to the rubber. Aaron Hill will shift over to second base Sunday, while Hernan Perez will take his place in the lineup, playing third and batting second for the Brewers. With the right-handed Carlos Martinez scheduled to start against the Brewers on Monday, Gennett's absence will likely be a short one.

      Brewers' Scooter Gennett: Absent from Friday's lineup

      Gennett is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Padres. Gennett made his return from the disabled list Thursday night, but the Brewers seem alright with easing him back into action and giving him the night off Friday. Aaron Hill will slide over to second base to fill in for him, while Hernan Perez takes over at the hot corner.

      Brewers' Scooter Gennett: Will hit second Thursday

      Gennett will hit second in the Brewers' batting order for Thursday's game against the Padres. Jonathan Villar did a good job batting near the top of the order while Gennett was on the disabled list, but Gennett will immediately reclaim the two spot in the Brewers' order against right-handed pitchers. Gennett owns just one start against a southpaw this season, so while he will see most of the starts at the keystone, the team figures to continue employing a platoon at second base.

      Brewers' Scooter Gennett: Activated from disabled list Thursday

      Gennett (oblique) was reinstated from the 15-day disabled list Thursday. After a brief rehab stint at High-A Brevard County, Gennett has been activated from the disabled list in advance of Thursday's game against the Padres. It's unclear if he'll be immediately reinserted into the lineup Thursday, but if he is, Aaron Hill will likely slide over to third base while Gennett takes back over at second. The Brewers optioned Yadiel Rivera to Triple-A Colorado Springs in a corresponding move Thursday.

Milwaukee kicks off a four-game set with the Reds on Thursday before heading to Miami for a three-game series against the Marlins.

      Brewers' Scooter Gennett: Could be activated when first eligible

      Gennett (oblique) could be activated from the disabled list when first eligible Tuesday, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports. The Brewers originally thought Gennett would be sidelined for longer than the minimum 15 days required by his placement on the disabled list, but it appears he now has a shot to rejoin the team next week. Gennett will resume his role as the Brewers' primary second baseman against right-handed pitchers whenever he is back on the roster.

      Brewers' Scooter Gennett: Hits 15-day DL with oblique issue

      Gennett (oblique) was placed on the 15-day DL on Thursday due to tightness in his right oblique. Gennett began experiencing tightness during batting practice Tuesday, which led to him subsequently being scratched from Tuesday's lineup. He was also excluded from Wednesday's lineup, though the matchup against the Cubs was ultimately rained out. After further evaluation, Gennett will require more than a few days to recover, so he'll head to the DL, and the Brewers have recalled infielder Hernan Perez from Triple-A Colorado Springs to take his place on the 25-man roster.
