Scooter Gennett had a minor league option remaining so it is telling that #Brewers placed him on waivers. It opens spot on 40-man roster.

Interesting, I'm guessing Sogard or De Jesus get added now?

Where was the news that he was even put on waivers?
But, hey, I'm happy to see they are moving on from a 1 trick pony. Good luck to Scooter in Cincy.

or Sogard? As much as I love Aguilar's bat, I would enjoy seeing all the weird combinations CC would come up with with a bench of Bandy, Niewuenhuis, Perez, DeJesus, Orf.

Kind of makes you wonder why we didn't just non-tender him in the first place, but that puts the Reds on the hook now, so no harm no foul.

Stearns said overall middle infield depth in organization worked against Gennett at this stage.

Tom‏ @Haudricourt 41s41 seconds ago
Stearns just told Gennett the news and said conversations like that are always “challenging” because of shock value to player of claim.

Stearns said he didn’t see ABs for Gennett at MLB level or AAA, which is why he wasn’t optioned. Knows $2.5 million off books as well.

Does this open the piggy-back rotation? Opened a spot on the 40man. Nelson/Andersn Garza/Milone?

The second-longest tenured offensive player on the Brewers roster (if you ignore the 10 days he was a FA in November 2015) is now...

Hernan Perez.

It's Domingo Santana if you want to disallow Perez for being a FA.

Guess Scooter truly did have zero value.

He never fit the mold of the kind of player Stearns is looking for; versatile. Saw the writing on the wall a while ago. Good luck, Scooter!

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

it made no sense keeping him on the roster once Villar moved to 2nd. i was just hoping they would get something for him, but i am glad to shred the salary and clear the roster spot. I like the idea of keeping Sogard only for a lefty bat off of the bench.

May be a good move for Scooter. He often hit well in Cincinnati.

If his value was zero he would have gone unclaimed. Cincy is on the hook for his contract now so he was worth $3M to them.
