Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett is headed to the 15-day DL with right oblique tightness.

The Brewers also called fifth-year infielder Hernan Perez up from Triple-A Colorado Springs, where he is batting .339 with 11 RBI through 62 at-bats this season, while sending pitcher Matt Garza to the 60-day DL to make room.

Gennett currently ranks second on the Brewers with four home runs, and is batting .258 with five RBI on the season.
