Giants pick up 2B Gennett in deal with Reds

July 31st, 2019

The Giants acquired second baseman Scooter Gennett and cash from the Reds for a player to be named. Gennett was saying goodbye to teammates after Cincinnati's 4-1 win over the Pirates on Wednesday.

Gennett, a seven-year veteran, is hitting .217. He's been limited to 21 games due to a right groin strain and didn't make his 2019 debut until June 28.
