Heading into Monday's Memorial Day game against the LA Dodgers, the Milwaukee Brewers received some bad news regarding their red-hot starting catcher Jonathan Lucroy. Here's what happened:
More bad lack for the Brewers on the injury front. Lucroy told Adam McCalvy of MLB.com that he was reaching under his hotel room bed for a lost sock on Sunday night when his wife shifted a suitcase, which fell on his hand. Seriously. He tried to take some swings Monday, but shut things down after he couldn't properly grip the bat. We should have more clarity on the situation in the next few hours. George Kottaras will handle starting catcher duties for now.
That's a pretty funny injury, until the x-rays came back showing a break that will require Lucroy to miss anywhere from 4-6 weeks.
That lost sock is going to cost the 20-28 Brewers a .345/.387/.969 hitter that was hitting .388/.409/1.068 with 22 RBI in the month of May.
George Kottaras (.233/.459/.924 in 62 plate appearances...

The month of May has not been particularly kind to the Milwaukee Brewers. In this month alone they have lost starting shortstop Alex Gonzalez for the season along with starting pitcher, Chris Narveson. On top of that two first basemen, a starting outfielder and an additional pitcher have all been put on the DL in the month of May alone. However, I don't think they could...
