The Cincinnati Reds added to their infield depth Tuesday by claiming second baseman Scooter Gennett off waivers from the Milwaukee Brewers.

Gennett has spent his entire four-year career in Milwaukee, and hit .263/.317/.412 with a career-high 14 home runs and 56 RBIs last season while striking out 114 times in 136 games.

The 26-year-old will earn $2.525 million this season, and is arbitration-eligible for two more years before hitting free agency.

Gennett lost his starting role with the Brewers to Jonathan Villar, and will likely compete with Jose Peraza for time in Cincinnati.
