Brewers place Scooter Gennett on the 15-day disabled list

Not gonna say that it’s a slow news day, but I will say that if it were a faster news day I wouldn’t be writing about the Milwaukee Brewers putting second baseman Scooter Gennett on the 15-day disabled list with right oblique tightness. But I just did, so draw your conclusions accordingly.

Gennett was a late scratch from Tuesday after experiencing pain in batting practice. Which, given what happened to Huston Street doing warmup tosses, is just further evidence that being prepared is overrated. Just get out there and do your thing, man.

The Brewers replaced Gennett on the 25-man roster by calling up infielder Hernan Perez. I’m sure he’s under strict orders not to stretch or warm up in any way whatsoever.
