Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett injured himself in just about the most bizarre way possible Sunday, cutting his hand in the shower after the team's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Gennett Placed on 15-Day DL

Tuesday, April 21

The Brewers announced that Gennett would go on the 15-day disabled list after suffering his hand injury.

On April 20, Gennett posted about the injury he suffered on Instagram:

Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel added:

Aaron Gleeman of HardballTalk reported that Gennett is hoping to return to the lineup by Wednesday. 

Gennett, 24, has gotten off to a slow start this season, hitting just .207 with one RBI and two runs scored. He's coming off a strong 2014 campaign that saw him hit .289 with nine homers and 54 RBI in 137 games, which raised expectations for him heading into 2015. 

For a Brewers team that has started the season 2-10 and has already placed Carlos Gomez on the 15-day disabled list, this latest setback is almost par for the course. While Gennett's injury seems unlikely to cost him more than a game or two, the Brewers might be wondering if they are hexed after the brutal start to the season they've endured.
