Reds' Scooter Gennett: Sitting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cubs.

Gennett started back-to-back games after returning from an illness, but he's in line for a day off. Derek Dietrich draws the start at the keystone and will bat fifth in Gennett's stead.

Reds' Scooter Gennett: Out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Cubs.

Gennett missed the first two games of the second half due to illness but has started the last two contests. Tuesday's off day appears to be simply a routine one. Derek Dietrich starts at second base in his absence.

Reds' Scooter Gennett: Shakes off illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett (illness) went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run Sunday in the Reds' 10-9 loss to the Rockies.

Gennett was withheld from the Reds' first two games of the weekend while battling the illness but the issue looks to be behind him after he logged eight innings in the field Sunday and turned in a productive day at the plate. He'll pick up a second straight start Monday in the Reds' series opener with the Cubs.

Reds' Scooter Gennett: Returns to action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett (illness) is starting at second base and batting sixth Sunday at Colorado, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Gennett didn't play the first two games out of the break due to the illness but is good to go for the series finale. The 29-year-old is 2-for-20 with six strikeouts in six games since coming off the injured list June 28.

Reds' Scooter Gennett: Remains out with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett (illness) remains out of the lineup Saturday against the Rockies.

Gennett is missing out on the chance to slug at Coors Field, but it remains a positive that he's merely dealing with an illness and not a recurrence of the groin issues that plagued his first half. Jose Peraza will start at second base in his absence.

Reds' Scooter Gennett: Scratched with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett was scratched from Friday's lineup against the Rockies with an illness, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

This is excellent news, as it initially seemed he may have been scratched with something related to the groin injury that kept him sidelined for almost the entire first half of the season, but an illness is much less concerning going forward. He is available off the bench. Derek Dietrich got the start at the keystone in his place.

Reds' Scooter Gennett: Late scratch Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett (groin) was a late scratch from Friday's lineup against the Rockies, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Initially he was in the lineup after re-injuring his groin just before the All-Star break, but the Reds removed him from the lineup roughly an hour before first pitch. Derek Dietrich will start at second base and bat fifth.

July 12, 2019 02:00 PM
Reds' Scooter Gennett: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett (groin) is back in the lineup for Friday's game against the Rockies.

Gennett sat for the last three games prior to the break due to groin tightness, though he did appear off the bench in one of those contests. After four more days off over the All-Star break, he's back in action, batting fifth and playing second base.

Reds' Scooter Gennett: Sitting out last game of first half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett (groin) remains out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Indians.

Though Gennett will avoid a stay on the 10-day injured list, the Reds won't take any chances with him in their final game before the All-Star break while he manages a tight left groin. He'll be out of the starting nine for a fourth straight game while Jose Peraza garners the start at the keystone. Gennett should be available off the bench, however, as he struck out in a pinch-hitting appearance in Saturday's 7-2 loss.

Reds' Scooter Gennett: Remains out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett (groin) is not in Saturday's lineup, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Gennett has been absent from the Reds' lineup since exiting the team's July 3 contest with groin tightness. Reports earlier in the week suggested that Gennett could return as soon as Saturday. Instead, Derek Dietrich draws the start at second base and will bat fifth.

Reds' Scooter Gennett: Expected to avoid IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett (groin) is expected to avoid the injured list and could return to action as soon as Saturday.

This is great news for Gennett, who just returned June 28 after missing the first three months with a right groin injury. His current injury is to his left groin. He was off to a slow start before this setback, collecting just two hits (both singles) in 19 plate appearances, but Gennett was an All-Star last year and the expectation is that the Reds will play him nearly every day when healthy.

Reds' Scooter Gennett: No talk of IL yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett (groin) might return as early as Saturday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. "I think it's just a minor setback," manager David Bell said. "He woke up (Thursday) and was really encouraged that it wasn't more sore than it could have been. It felt a lot better than he anticipated. No talk of IL at this point. We'll see how he is today. Probably not available today, but with the off-day [Friday], we'll see how he responds over the next 24-48 hours."

The Reds don't want to play a man down over the weekend, but it's helpful that they have a rare Friday off and then only two more games before the All-Star break. They can afford to play it cautiously with Gennett as a result.

Reds' Scooter Gennett: Sitting out another game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett (groin) is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Brewers.

In just his fifth appearance of the season Wednesday, Gennett tweaked his left groin and was forced to exit early in the Reds' 3-0 victory. It bears noting that it was a right groin tear that kept Gennett on the shelf for the first three months of the season, leaving both the 29-year-old and the Reds optimistic that his latest setback on the health front isn't significant. In any case, he'll get at least one day off to recover from the issue while Derek Dietrich steps in at the keystone. The Reds will have an off day Friday before returning to action Saturday versus the Indians.

Reds' Scooter Gennett: Downplays groin tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett (groin) labeled his exit from Wednesday's game as precautionary and may be able to start Thursday's series finale, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Gennett was pulled from Wednesday's game with left groin tightness but appears to have avoided a more serious injury. The 29-year-old was sidelined the first three months of the season with a right groin strain, so it makes sense for the Reds to remain cautious with the All-Star break looming.

Reds' Scooter Gennett: Exits with groin tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett was removed from Wednesday's game against the Brewers with left groin tightness, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Gennett missed the first three months of the season with a right groin strain, so the saving grace here is that he doesn't appear to have aggravated that injury. The 29-year-old went 0-for-2 with a strikeout prior to leaving the game after four innings. The severity of the issue isn't clear, but the Reds are likely to be extra cautious given Gennett's previous injury this year and with the All-Star break less than a week away.

Reds' Scooter Gennett: Day off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett is not in the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Cubs, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Gennett returned from the injured list Friday and started the first two games of the series, going 1-for-8 with one strikeout. Jose Peraza will start at the keystone and bat seventh Sunday.

June 28, 2019 12:32 PM
Reds' Scooter Gennett: Activated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett (groin) was activated off the 60-day injured list Friday.

Gennett played seven rehab games between Double-A Daytona and Triple-A Louisville over the past couple weeks, clearing the way for his 2019 debut in the majors. The 29-year-old missed the first three months of the season after suffering a right groin strain late in spring training. Gennett will immediately slot into the starting lineup at second base for the Reds, batting sixth.

June 23, 2019 05:52 PM
Reds' Scooter Gennett: Could return for upcoming homestand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett (groin) will join Triple-A Louisville for rehab games Monday and may rejoin the Reds for Friday's game versus the Cubs, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Gennett has played four games with High-A Daytona over the past week and is now scheduled to play a pair of games at Triple-A. The 29-year-old has spent the entirety of the season on the injured list after suffering the right groin strain in spring training, but he's now on the cusp of his 2019 debut.

Reds' Scooter Gennett: Rehab delayed by weather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett (groin) has sat out two of his rehab games with High-A Daytona due to wet weather, with the Reds taking extra precautions with him to avoid re-injury, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

There's a possibility that Gennett's return to the big leagues could be delayed by a day or two. "I think the current [rehab] calendar ends Tuesday," Bell said. "We're still out on the road, we have an off-day Thursday. I think it would probably be extended at least a day or two, maybe longer. It just depends on where he is."

June 17, 2019 05:40 PM
Reds' Scooter Gennett: Targeting return late next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gennett (groin) hopes to rejoin the Reds by the end of next week, Zach Dean of the Daytona Beach News-Journal reports.

Gennett has been dealing with a groin strain since late March. He'll begin a rehab assignment with High-A Daytona on Monday and looks to be in line to spend 10 days to two weeks in the minors before heading to Cincinnati, assuming his timeline is accurate.
