RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

After a couple of solidly above-average seasons as a platoon player, the Brewers gave Gennett a full-time role to begin 2015 and he promptly collapsed. Gennett still can't hit left-handed pitching at all, as he managed a putrid .114/.139/.171 mark in just 36 plate appearances before the experiment was over. Gennett was acceptable against righties (.279/.310/.403), and there may still be some value to his skill set considering most second basemen hit right-handed, but the dream of Gennett as an impact full-time player seems to be dead. Gennett is slated to start at second base for the Brewers in 2016, but there will be some more competition as Jean Segura, Yadiel Rivera and Jonathan Villar will all be in the mix for playing time across the infield. For fantasy purposes, Gennett is most useful in daily formats or other leagues that allow owners to maximize his playing time against righties.

2015

Gennett, in his first full big league season, finished 2014 with the fifth best OPS among second basemen who saw at least 400 plate appearances. He hammered right-handed pitching, but went just 4-for-39 against southpaws while sharing time at the keystone with Rickie Weeks. Though Weeks is expected to move on this offseason, Gennett’s struggles against southpaws could still land him in at least a soft platoon next year. More starts would help Gennett’s counting stats, but given his struggles against southpaws, that could result in a decrease in his ratios.

2014

Gennett always hit for average in the minors, but there were questions as to whether he would be able to maintain that ability in the big leagues. It didn't take him long to provide answers, as he hit .324 in 69 games in his first big league season. Gennett will have trouble matching last year's power production over a full season, and he needs to take more walks, but his ability to put the bat on the ball could earn him a spot near the top of the order. Gennett's 2013 performance likely has him ticketed to open the 2014 campaign in some sort of a second-base platoon with Rickie Weeks.

2013

Gennett entered last season as the Brewers' fifth-ranked prospect, according to Baseball America, and did not disappoint, hitting .293 with five home runs, 30 doubles, and 44 RBI in 133 games. Gennett's numbers are not eye popping, but at age 22 with a career .300 batting average, he is the Brewers' top second-base prospect. Gennett won't push Rickie Weeks off the keystone in Milwaukee, but he could be a replacement down the road if the Brewers avoid using him as trade bait before then.

2011

Gennett hit .311/.356/.465 at Low-A Wisconsin in his first season of pro baseball. His small size has scouts wondering if he can produce in the majors, but so far he's proven them wrong. He'll start 2011 at High-A Brevard County.
