Lucroy back in Milwaukee getting broken hand set
Tuesday, May 29, 2012 11:50 PM EDT
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy will miss at least six weeks after returning to Milwaukee on Tuesday to have his broken right hand put in a cast.
Lucroy said he was hurt in a bizarre incident Sunday night in his hotel room, when he was reaching under the bed for a sock while his wife shifted a suitcase that fell and struck his hand.
Brewers manager Ron Roenicke, speaking before Tuesday night's game against the Dodgers, said he was told Lucroy will miss anywhere from six to eight weeks but will not need surgery.
Backup catcher George Kottaras was given Tuesday night off because of a hamstring issue, putting rookie Martin Maldonado behind the plate after he was called up from Triple-A Nashville.
Right-hander Mike Fiers was the starter, marking the first time in Brewers history that both members of a battery were making their first start in the majors.
