|Milwaukee Brewers – No. 2|
May 1, 1990 |
|Bats: Left||Throws: Right|
|June 3, 2013 for the Milwaukee Brewers|
(through June 21, 2014)
|Runs batted in||41|
Gennett represented the Brewers at the 2012 All-Star Futures Game. Less than a year later on June 3, 2013, he was recalled from the Nashville Sounds, and made his major league debut against the Oakland Athletics. Gennett collected his first major league hit, a single to right-center, on June 5. Gennett hit his first major league home run on June 14 against Bronson Arroyo in his birthplace of Cincinnati.
Gennett is currently the left-handed part of a productive Milwaukee second base platoon that ranked fourth in the National League in Wins Above Replacement at the All-Star Break. Gennett has demonstrated fine contact and power skills against right-handed pitching, but keeping with what became problematic for him as he moved up through the minors, he struggles against same-handed opponents with only 4 hits and 1 walk in 37 plate appearances versus lefties through the All-Star Break.
On June 25, Gennett hit his first career grand slam off Stephen Strasburg.
