UPDATE: The diagnosis is in and it’s not good. According to Mike Vassallo, the Brewers’ director of media relations, Lucroy has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a boxer’s fracture of the right hand.

Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash told Adam McCalvy of MLB.com that he’ll be sidelined for the next four to six weeks. Brutal news.

7:32 PM: This is not a joke, Brewers fans.

According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, Jonathan Lucroy was sent for X-rays after injuring his right hand in a freak accident. Lucroy said he suffered the injury when he reached down under his hotel room bed last night for a lost sock and his wife adjusted a suitcase, which fell on his hand. Seriously.

Lucroy reported to Dodger Stadium to attempt to take some swings, but he shut things down after it became apparent that his hand was too bruised for him to grip the bat properly. The injury-riddled Brewers are currently crossing their fingers for some rare good news. George Kottaras, who had some cramping in his hamstring yesterday, will start behind the plate tonight.

Lucroy is off to a fantastic start this season, batting .345/.387/.583 with five home runs, 30 RBI and a .969 OPS in 151 plate appearances. The 25-year-old is hitting a cool .388 this month.

    What the hell else can happen to this team this year?

    I just made a trade offer yesterday for him in my fantasy league. Thank goodness wasn’t accepted yet.

    Apparently we sold our souls to the devil last year for a lousy NLCS appearance. This season’s injury bug is f***ing ridiculous.

  7. mydadyourmom - May 29, 2012 at 12:17 AM

    Hmm. Or sold your soul for 50 games maybe?

    • brewcrewfan54 - May 29, 2012 at 7:31 AM

      Nope, thats not it at all.

    He means a lot to this team. This really hurts.
