Brewers calling up Scooter Gennett following three-week demotion to Triple-A

Three weeks after demoting Scooter Gennett to Triple-A the Brewers are recalling the second baseman from the minors, according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com.

Gennett earned the demotion by hitting .159 in 20 games, with a disabled list stint for a shower-related injury mixed in. He batted .307 with two homers and an .848 OPS in 17 games at Triple-A, which convinced the Brewers he was ready to return to the majors.

Gennett came into the season as a career .300 hitter in 206 games, so the demotion after 20 bad games always seemed hasty and it’s no surprise that his return is a quick one.
