Scooter Gennett’s Injury Was Caused by Shower Accident

Scooter Gennett’s Injury Was Caused by Shower AccidentMike McGinnis/Getty Images(MILWAUKEE) -- Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett recently suffered a hand injury that could land him on the disabled list. As it turns out, the injury was the result of a shower accident. After the team's game on Sunday, Gennett sliced one of his knuckles on a metal rack. "I went to grab some body wash like I would normally grab body wash," Gennett said. "It was definitely a freakish thing. It started bleeding everywhere. I didn't feel any type of pain. I have my strength but something like that reopening and getting worse isn't what we want." It is uknown just how long Gennett will be out of action for the last-place Brewers. "He doesn't understand how in the world you can possibly get hurt in the bathroom," said Brewers manager Ron Roenicke. Gennett is hoping to return to the field on Wednesday, but no decisions have been made yet. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Brewers Catcher Suffers Broken Toe, Out IndefinitelyiStockphoto(NEW YORK) -- Already struggling out of the gate, the injuries are piling up for the Milwaukee Brewers as catcher Jonathan Lucroy will be out indefinitely with a broken toe. Lucroy suffered the injury during the team's game against the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night. He broke his toe after a foul tip hit him in the left toe. "I've been hit a million times on my feet," Lucroy told MLB.com. "I was just talking to 'Maldy' about it and he said the same thing: That's the first time I've ever seen a catcher break their toe. It had to be me. It's about par for the course right now." "I can't do anything about it. I have to wait for it to heal up," Lucroy added. "Freak thing. You guys saw it. I don't know what else to say about it other than I have to overcome it, deal with it." The 28-year-old Lucroy was off to a rough start this season, batting .156 with two RBIs. Meanwhile, the Brewers are off to a 2-11 start, which is the worst mark in Major League Baseball. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Brewers Place Outfielder Carlos Gomez on the DL

Brewers Place Outfielder Carlos Gomez on the DLMike McGinnis/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Milwaukee Brewers will have to keep their head above water in the NL Central without one of their best players for at least a couple of weeks.  The team announced they've place outfielder Carlos Gomez on the disabled list. Gomez will head to the DL with a slight “defect” or “tear” in his hamstring. "When you talk about a leadoff guy who can do what he can do, and in center field, it's concerning,” Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said via Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “We know offensively we need to get things going and we're losing a guy who has a chance to do a ton for you. "When you lose Carlos, you lose a piece that's got a chance to really get things going," he said. For the past couple seasons, Gomez has been a dynamic player for the Brewers. He's made the All-Star game the past two seasons, and in 2014, Gomez hit .284 with 23 home runs ,73 RBIs, 95 runs scored, and 34 stolen bases. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Brewers Pick Up Roenicke Option iStockphoto(PHOENIX) -- The Milwaukee Brewers exercised Manager Ron Roenicke's 2016 option on Thursday afternoon. Roenicke replaced Ken Macha after the 2010 season and has led the Brewers to a 335-313 record. Milwaukee won the NL Central in his first season, then finished third and dropped to fourth in 2013. Milwaukee started 20-7 last season and led the division for five months, but lost 22 of its last 31 games and finished third at 82-80. The Brewers announced at the end of the season that Roenicke would return for 2015. "It makes me feel good," Roenicke said. "It's uncomfortable, especially when I concentrate so much on what I'm doing with my job -- I don't want to have to answer questions about the personal side of it." Roenicke said he has a great working relationship with general manager Doug Melvin. "I really like where I am. I love the city. I love the management," he said. "He went out on a limb and gave me this opportunity." Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Brewers Bring Back Francisco Rodriguez

Brewers Bring Back Francisco Rodriguez Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(MILWAUKEE, Wi.) -- The Milwaukee Brewers have announced that Francisco Rodriguez will return to the team on a two-year, $13 million dollar deal. The right-handed Rodriguez, 33, has spent most of the last four seasons with the Brewers -- he was traded to the Orioles before the trade deadline in 2013 -- where he has served as both the teams’ closer and set-up man. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Todd Rosiak, Rodriguez, "turned down more guaranteed money," to return to the Brewers, saying Rodriguez told him the signing was "more about comfort and fit." In 193 2/3 innings with Milwaukee he has a 3.11 ERA and has earned 57 saves.  Last season, Rodriguez had a 3.04 ERA with 73 strikeouts over 68 innings pitched.

Ryan Braun’s Ready to Rebound in 2015

Ryan Braun’s Ready to Rebound in 2015 Robert Binder/MLB Photos via Getty Images(PHOENIX) -- Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is ready to rebound in 2015. Braun underwent an offseason procedure on his thumb to get rid of nerve issues and is looking forward to spring training. "I feel good. I'm only 31; I should be good," Braun said. "I expect to go out there and be one of the best players in the league." "I've been able to do everything I would typically do over the course of an offseason, which is encouraging," Braun continued. "Hopefully I'll be healthy. But aside from that, I don't think I'll be limited or anything. I'll have to be conscious about how many extra swings I take and stuff like that, but aside from that I should be able to do everything." The 2011 MVP struggled last season and finished with a .266 batting average, 19 homers, and 81 RBIs. Braun's struggles last season was a major part of the Brewers' giving away the N.L. Central and watching the playoffs from home. "When you show up this year, you know you can't do anything about last year. None of us can change what happened. We wish things would have ended differently than they did but they didn't," Braun said. "Hopefully, the focus is on this year and doing everything we can to prepare the best that we can every day to be successful and to get off to a good start in April."

Brewers’ Jonathan Lucroy Out 4-6 Weeks with Hamstring Injury

Brewers’ Jonathan Lucroy Out 4-6 Weeks with Hamstring Injury Milwaukee Brewers/ML​B(MILWAUKEE) -- Brewers All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy will be out four to six weeks with a strain in his right hamstring, the team announced on Wednesday. Lucroy said during a phone interview that the hamstring issue started after he pulled up quickly while running hard into third base during a game in August. The injury will sideline him all of spring training, but the team is hopeful he'll be ready to go for Opening Day on April 6 against the Colorado Rockies. "One thing we wanted to make clear here, he can still throw, he can still hit," Brewers general manager Gord Ash said. Lucroy batted .301 with 13 homers and 69 RBIs last year.

Report: Mariners Sign Rickie Weeks

Report: Mariners Sign Rickie Weeks Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(SEATTLE, Wa.) -- The Seattle Mariners are adding depth to their infield. The team will sign Rickie Weeks to a one-year, $2 million deal, according to Jim Bowden of ESPN.  The 32-year-old Weeks spent his entire ten year career with the Milwaukee Brewers. He signed a four year extension with the team in 2011, but the team declined an $11.5 million option after his production at the plate slipped in the past few years. Weeks will likely spell Robinson Cano on days of rest. Cano signed a 10-year, $240 million deal last season with the Mariners. In his first season with the Mariners, Cano batted .314, smacked 14 home runs and drove in 82 RBI. In 2011, Weeks was named to his only All-Star game where he batted .269, hit 20 home runs and drove in 49 RBI. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Options Declined on Butler, Markakis, Weeks

Options Declined on Butler, Markakis, Weeks Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Three prominent names in baseball will be looking for work this offseason as Billy Butler, Nick Markakis and Rickie Weeks had contract options declined by their teams. Coming off a heartbreaking game 7 World Series loss, the Kansas City Royals turned down a $12 million option on Butler, their designated hitter and a fan favorite. Butler was a 2012 All-Star when he hit .313 with 29 home runs and 107 RBI. Those numbers have took a sharp dive this season as he hit .271 with nine home runs and 66 RBI.  The Baltimore Orioles chose to buyout the remaining year on outfielder Nick Markakis's contract, choosing to pay him $2 million instead of the full $17.5 million he would have made this coming season.  Markakis had stated that would like to stay in Baltimore and the Orioles would like him to return according to MASN's Roch Kubatko. "Nick is a dependable player and the Orioles would like to continue a relationship with him," said executive vice president Dan Duquette in a text message. The Milwaukee Brewers also chose to save some money by declining the option of second baseman Rickie Weeks that would have seen him earn $14.5 million. Weeks has spent his entire 11-year career with the Brewers but was becoming a part-time player as he has missed at least 40 games in three of the last four seasons for the Brew Crew.  Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Brewers Activate Starting Pitcher Matt Garza

Brewers Activate Starting Pitcher Matt Garza Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- With the St. Louis Cardinals breathing down their neck in the NL Central, the Milwaukee Brewers are getting reinforcements as the team has activated starting pitcher Matt Garza off the disabled list. Garza had been on the shelf since early August as he dealt with an oblique injury. During the offseason, the Brewers signed 30-year-old Garza to a four-year deal worth $50 million. Aside from the injury, it's proven to be a wise investment so far. In 23 starts this season, Garza has gone 7-7 with a 3.58 ERA to go along with a 1.13 WHIP. Garza's return to the Brewers could not have come at a better time. The team has lead their division for the majority of the season, but now find themselves trailing the Cardinals by one game in the division with just 25 games to play. The team has Garza scheduled to return to the mound on Wednesday night against the Chicago Cubs. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Brewers Acquire Reds Reliever Jonathan Broxton from the Reds

Brewers Acquire Reds Reliever Jonathan Broxton from the Reds Sarah Glenn/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- As Major League Baseball enters the final month of the regular season, the Milwaukee Brewers have helped solidify their bullpen by acquiring reliever Jonathan Broxton from the Cincinnati Reds. No longer the player he once was during his time with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Broxton has re-emerged has a dominant reliever this season with the Reds. "Part of the thinking was his contract. We had to recognize we're taking on this contract for next year, too,'' Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said. "You try to get somebody who can help. There's a lot of big money guys today, whether they're relievers or [position] players, whatever. We've done a pretty good job with bullpens without having to spend a lot of money.'' In 51 games this season, the 30-year-old Broxton is 4-2 with a 1.86 ERA and a WHIP of 1.01. More importantly for the Brewers, Broxton is eligible to pitch for the team during the postseason, as he was acquired prior to the September 1st deadline. He is expected to serve as the set-up man for closer Francisco Rodriguez. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
