Brewers option 2B Scooter Gennett to Triple-A
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Slumping second baseman Scooter Gennett was shipped to Triple-A Colorado Springs by the Brewers on Monday, the team announced. He will be replaced on the roster by pitcher Corey Knebel

Gennett has been struggling all season, hitting a paltry .154 in 65 at-bats this year, way down from the .289 average he posted last year. He's also dealt with a hand injury that landed him on the disabled list. 

Knebel is 1-2 with a 4.70 ERA and six saves in 16 appearances with the Sky Sox this season. He appeared in eight games with the Tigers last season, posting no record and a 6.23 ERA.

Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett fighting through slump
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is struggling at the plate so far this season. The younger player is hitting just .159 63 at-bats this season and is looking for answers, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"I'm starting to get that confidence back, that swagger. But, you know, reality is reality," he said. "It's something I haven't been through before — first time at this level. That being said, I have to go back to how I had success, and that's hitting the ball to left field, trying to hit ground balls and not trying to yank.

"When you're not performing to your abilities, what comes secondary to that is trying to do too much. Now it's to the point where I'm going to try to tickle the ball over the shortstop's head and (let) something happen, rather than forcing things."

Manager Craig Counsell thinks his swing will come around soon.

"He's been struggling," he said. "With Scooter, the one thing I've seen for years in watching him play is he always has hit. It's the one thing that we know. He's been very consistent at it every year he's played. I think you've just got to keep going with it, and know that he's going to hit.

"He's been a hitter his whole life. It's what got him here. He knows it — it's time to start hitting."

Brewers leadoff hitter and infielder Jean Segura was scratched with soreness in his right pinky finger on Wednesday against the White, per the team's official website.

Segura is hitting .262 (33 for 126) with two homers and 12 RBI this season.

Milwaukee is favored (-125) at home against Chicago, per VegasInsider.com.

Brewers 2B Scooter Gennett sitting again on Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is out of the starting lineup for the second straight game on Wednesday. No injury has been reported, so it appears that manager Craig Counsell is just trying to get Gennett some rest after recently returning from a stint on the disabled list.

Hector Gomez will fill in at second once again and bat eighth.

Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is out of the starting lineup for Tuesday's matchup with the White Sox. Gennett has started six of the eight games since returning from the disabled list on May 5. He has struggled since then, however, recording just four hits including a home run, over that span.

Hector Gomez is starting at second base Tuesday while batting eighth. Jean Segura, who was rested on Monday, returns to the starting lineup at shortstop while batting leadoff.
