Brewers Injury Update: Scooter Gennett still out with tight quad

By on 7/25/2014 07:00:00 AM

The Milwaukee Brewers improved to 58-45 on the season following a 9-1 thumping of the New York Mets on Thursday. Matt Garza allowed only a run on two hits in eight innings to get the win. The Brewers got home runs from Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy and Khris Davis to spark a 10-hit attack. Rickie Weeks added a hit and a run scored playing for the injured Scooter Gennett, who is still out with a quad injury.

I reported on July 23 that Gennett had to leave the previous night's game in the fifth inning with tightness in his right quad.

An update on Gennett, as reported by Adam McCalvy and Caitlin Swieca of, was the Gennett missed Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, as expected.  Gennett was also out of the lineup tonight.  Manager Ron Roenicke stated yesterday that he didn't know how much time Gennett would miss.

Gennett was pleased to have some time off to nurse the injury.
"Like anything else, when it's sore and doesn't feel good, that's when you're prone to something serious happening, You're preventing something serious from happening, if that means a day or two, I'm fine with that."
Gennett, in his second Major League season, is batting .305 with eight home runs and 34 RBI this season.  In 69 games as a rookie, Gennett hit .324 with six home runs and 21 RBI.
