Latest Update Gennett is not in the Brewers starting lineup on Tuesday. Tue Aug, 19, 03:55 PM
Has an excellent line-drive bat and good hitting instincts and bat speed. Can spray the ball to all fields. Runs fairly well on the bases.
Flaws: : Lacks plate patience and doesn't own major home-run power. Also commits a lot of errors in the field and is only an average defender.
Gennett's quad injury unfortunately opened the door for the second base platoon that is now present in Milwaukee. With lefty J.A. Happ on the hill for the Blue Jays, Rickie Weeks gets the start Tuesday.Analyst: Howard Bender
Gennett has been sharing time with Rickie Weeks despite obviously outplaying him, leading to another absence Saturday night. If Gennett can continue to play well, he should see more and more time in the starting lineup, as his .308 average certainly indicates he deserves to be starting consistently. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Since coming back from a recent quad injury, Gennett is 7-for-21 (.333) over his last six games and has five RBI and three runs scored. He's never going to dazzle you with his contributions to the counting stats, but with steady play and strong surrounding lineup, he should be able to help you with some runs scored and possibly some batting average assistance.Analyst: Howard Bender
Despite his solid efforts this season, the Brewers coaching staff continues to platoon Gennett with Rickie Weeks, although the former has performed much better over the coarse of the team's 122 games. He is now slashing .307/.341/.475 with eight home runs, 41 RBI and 44 runs scored over 326 at-bats as he remains a solid play for those in deep leagues at the keystone.Analyst: Matthew Beck
