The Brewers are running out of clichs to describe their hard-luck injury situation. But day after day, things continue to get worse on that front. On Monday, a report from MLB.com's Adam McCalvy says Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is the latest to be kept out of the lineup for an injury. According to the report, Lucroy's wife dropped a suitcase on his hand in a bizarre accident, as he was reaching under his hotel bed for a lost sock. The injury was enough to scratch him from tonight's lineup, as backup catcher George Kottaras will start in his place. Lucroy was set to get x-rays Monday afternoon. The injury report is getting a bit out of hand for Milwaukee lately, as major ailments have marked three players out for the season, while Marco Estrada and Cesar Izturis are on the 15-day disabled list. Meanwhile, other players, like Lucroy, Kottaras, Aramis Ramirez, and Kameron Loe have all experienced minor injuries that have kept them out of the lineup at times in the last few games. Losing Lucroy for more than one game would be a huge loss, as the Brewers catcher is one of the hottest hitters in major league baseball. He's batting .345 with five home runs and 30 RBI this season.
