Brewers have stability in Lucroy


 PHOENIX (AP) -- Jonathan Lucroy has quietly brought stability to the Milwaukee Brewers.

   The catcher missed the first 10 games of last season with a broken right pinkie, but wound up starting 114 games and anchoring a pitching staff that carried Milwaukee to the NL Central Division championship. He's ready for this season and says knowing the pitching staff will be a big benefit for the Brewers.

   All five starters finished with double-digit wins, thanks to Lucroy and reserve catcher George Kottaras.
