Jonathan Lucroy still several weeks from hitting or throwing

Texas Rangers v Milwaukee Brewers

Jonathan Lucroy has been on the disabled list since late May, when his wife dropped a suitcase on his hand–and sadly got a bunch of hate mail from “fans”–but the fracture has healed enough for the Brewers catcher to catch a bullpen session over the weekend.

Rowan Kavner of MLB.com reports that Lucroy had the cast removed on June 20 and is now wearing a brace, but he’s likely still several weeks from being cleared to hit or throw. He was initially given a six-week recovery timetable, which still seems fairly accurate.

Milwaukee has gotten decent production from fill-ins George Kottaras and Martin Maldonado, but Lucroy was hitting .345 with five homers and a .969 OPS in 43 games before the off-field injury.

    Brewers need this guy back in a hurry. No offense to Maldonado who has been an amazing fill in behind the plate, the brewers just have not been able to replace Lucroy’s bat in the lineup. Get well soon and Hurry back to the 5th spot in the lineup!

    I still do not believe the “wife dropped a suitcase on his hand” story. Regardless, we need his bat back in the lineup in the worst way…
