The Giants acquired second baseman Scooter Gennett from the Reds in exchange for cash considerations, per Jon Heyman.

Gennett, 29, has played in only 20 games this season due to a severe groin strain. He came off of the disabled list in late June but has only mustered a .489 OPS in 69 plate appearances.

Derek Dietrich, who helped handle second base while Gennett was on the injured list, will likely take over the position on a full-time basis. Meanwhile, Gennett will likely contribute off the Giants’ bench.
