Roenicke expects Jonathan Lucroy to return in 4-6 weeks for Brewers


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/21/2015) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said that the 4-6 week timetable for catcher Jonathan Lucroy (toe) to return is reasonable, reports MLB.com.

Lucroy was added to the disabled list Tuesday with a toe injury from fouling off a pitch during Monday's game.

Lucroy was hitting .156 with no homers and two RBI.

Brewers send C Lucroy to DL, promote Centeno


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) What was anticipated has become reality - the Brewers have placed catcher Jonathan Lucroy on the disabled list with a toe injury.

Lucroy sustained the injury by fouling a pitch off his foot Monday night.

He has been one of many Brewers struggling at the plate. Lucroy owns a slash line of .156/.235/.200 with no homers and two RBI.

His placement on the DL has forced the team to promote catcher Juan Centeno from the minors. The 25 year old earned 40 major league at-bats with the Mets in 2013 and 2014.


Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy leaves game with toe injury


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy was forced to leave Monday's game against the Reds after taking a foul tip off his left foot, the team announced. 

Lucroy was replaced by Martin Maldonado at catcher. Lucroy was 0 for 3 in the game before suffering the injury.

"I can't do anything about it. I have to wait for it to heal up," Lucroy said, per MLB.com. "Freak thing. You guys saw it. I don't know what else to say about it other than I have to overcome it, deal with it."

After the game, the Brewers announced Lucroy will be placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with a broken left toe and the team will call up catcher Juan Centeno

"I've been hit a million times on my feet," Lucroy said. "I was just talking to 'Maldy' about it and he said the same thing: That's the first time I've ever seen a catcher break their toe. It had to be me. It's about par for the course right now."


Brewers' Ryan Braun bats leadoff for first time in career


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun was slotted in the leadoff position in the team's starting lineup on Saturday, the first time in his career he's batted leadoff. 

The Brewers' lineup had other major changes on Saturday. Martin Maldonado will bat seventh and catch, in just his fourth game of 2015. Regular catcher Jonathan Lucroy replaces Adam Lind at first base. 

"Trying to do something different, getting [Braun] sparked," Roenicke said to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He's had better at-bats, but just to get his mind off some things and maybe on something else. Then also, I think he is swinging the bat better. He's just not getting hits. Put him in a little different atmosphere. Hopefully he can get on base for us and have the other guys drive him in."

Hector Gomez gets the start at second base, batting sixth. He replaces Scooter Gennett

Logan Schaefer is in center field, batting eighth. It will be his first start of the season.


Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy trying to turnaround slow start


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is working to find a rhythm at the plate early in the season, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The catcher isn't panicking, but it doesn't mean he hasn't dealt with his issues to begin the year.

"I'm not frustrated at all," said Lucroy. "I'm pissed off but I'm not frustrated. I know I'm better. But by getting mad, it drives me to get better, which I will."

Lucroy is hitting just .087 in 23 at-bats to begin the season.

"I can look at my video and I know what I'm doing wrong. I can fix myself by looking at it," he said. "It's a timing thing. I'm swinging at strikes; I'm just missing pitches.

"When I go back and watch the video, there are a lot of key points I look at like with my swing and stance, my hands. But mostly it's timing. When you're on time, everything else clicks. When you're late (starting your swing), it messes you up."


Brewers' Lucroy, Gennett not in starting lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy and second baseman Scooter Gennett are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.

Lucroy is getting a break from starting Sunday after opening the season just 1 for 20, and Martin Maldonado will take his spot behind the plate. Manager Ron Roenicke said he isn't worried about Lucroy's slow start, the Journal Sentinel reports.

"Luc has had some good at-bats," Roenicke said Sunday. "He stayed on a breaking ball and hit a bullet to second yesterday. The day before he lined out to short. So he’s had some good at-bats. The first couple days he was lost, then he started swinging the bat again. I like what he’s doing."

With Lucroy out of the lineup, Jean Segura will move to the No. 2 slot, and the manager indicated that Segura's early-season performance made his choice for the spot easy.

"The way he’s been swinging it, yeah," Roenicke said. "Other than that, I don’t what I would have done. Sometimes you slip in a Khris Davis or somebody else. But Seggy, the way he’s swinging, he’s perfect."

Gennett is out of the lineup for the second straight game after getting ejected Friday for slamming his bat to the ground on a called strike three when the team had no backup infielders on the bench. Hector Gomez will get a second straight start at second base after going 2 for 3 Saturday.

The Brewers are favorites (-120) against the Pirates Sunday.


Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez to leadoff on Opening Day


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2015) The Brewers have announced their Opening Day lineup and it will go: center fielder Carlos Gomez, catcher Jonathan Lucroy, right fielder Ryan Braun, third baseman Aramis Ramirez, first baseman Adam Lind, left fielder Khris Davis, second baseman Scooter Gennett, shortstop Jean Segura and pitcher Kyle Lohse.

Gomez and Gennett were competing throughout camp to see who would end up as the leadoff hitter in the lineup. Gomez has hit leadoff in 106 of 148 games, posting a .276/.356/.488 slash line with 20 home runs and 50 RBI.


Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy dominating after return from injury


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy kept his hitting streak alive on Friday with a double against the Indians on Friday, reports MLB.com. Lucroy has now extended his hitting streak to 11 games.

After missing time due to a strained right hamstring, Lucroy has left the injury behind him.

"I told you I would be OK. I think as long as I stay on top of it and keep my stolen bags down, I'll be healthy all year," Lucroy joked. "Are you going to write that? Please write that."

Lucroy went 1 for 4 with a double on Friday. Over his 14 Cactus League games he's hitting .419 with four homeruns and three doubles. 

Lucroy led the Major Leagues in doubles last season and finished fourth in National League Most Valuable Player voting.

"Just thinking about 'Luc,' when you bring it up, I forget [the injury]," manager Ron Roenicke said. "He's been catching for a while and he's swung the bat so well, it doesn't enter my mind that he missed the first two weeks [of games]. It doesn't even come into play."

"Honestly, it's probably a good thing that I missed a couple of weeks taking it easy," Lucroy said. "I'm already over Spring Training right now, because I think it goes too long. It's almost a blessing in disguise, because I have a week or two less mileage on me.

"Maybe next year I'll come in and say, 'Let's do it this way again.'"


Brewers' Roenicke chooses Carlos Gomez to bat leadoff


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke told reporters Tuesday's spring lineup against the Reds will be the team's Opening Day batting order, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Tuesday's lineup had center fielder Carlos Gomez batting first, and he was followed by catcher Jonathan Lucroy, right fielder Ryan Braun, third base Aramis Ramirez, first baseman Adam Lind, left fielder Khris Davis, second baseman Scooter Gennett and shortstop Jean Segura. The pitcher will bat ninth.

Roenicke said he chose Gomez to bat leadoff over Gennett because moving Gomez to the middle of the lineup disrupts other hitters.


Brewers' Jonathan Lucroy gets first start at first base Friday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Brewers regular catcher Jonathan Lucroy drew his first start at first base after being cleared from a strained right hamstring injury. Manager Ron Roenicke wanted to be able to see Lucroy's versatility.

"Thought we needed to do it, so hopefully we can do it at least once more,” said Roenicke to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "But as much as he gets out there, it will help. There’s some pitchers that we still want him to catch and if we can get through those then maybe some other days we can get him over there again."

Lucroy was happy to finally be back on the field.

"I've been doing a little bit out there every day," Lucroy said. "Taking some grounders and stuff to stay sharp over there."

Brewers' Jonathan Lucroy faces live pitching without any issues


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2015) Jonathan Lucroy faced live pitching and ran the bases in a minor-league game for the Brewers on Thursday, as he continues to work his way back from a mid-February hamstring strain, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

He went 2 for 5 with two singles, two strikeouts and a lineout, and reported no issues with his hamstring after the game.

"Seeing as that was the first live pitching I've seen since September, I'm pretty happy with the results," Lucroy said. “I felt good. I think it's more mental than anything because strength-wise and mobility-wise, I feel pretty good. There's still a little tightness there but I think that kind of come with it. You've just got to stay on top of it and be flexible and stuff."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said catcher Jonathan Lucroy (hamstring) could be playing in spring games by the end of the week, per MLB.com. Lucroy has been sidelined since mid-February due to a right hamstring strain.

"He feels good,” Roenicke said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “He ran well (in drills) yesterday. He’s not that far away. We’d like to get him a few at-bats (in minor-league camp) before we get him back over for games.”


Brewers' Lucroy could get into spring game sooner than expected


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is progressing fast enough in his recovery from a right hamstring strain that he could play in spring games sooner than expected. Lucroy wasn't expected to get into spring games until the last week or two of spring training, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"I think it’ll be a lot sooner than that," Lucroy said Friday. "I feel pretty good already but obviously we’re going to be cautiously optimistic about it and take our time. There’s no sense in rushing it because I’m sure I’ll get plenty of playing time so I’m not really too worried about it."

Manager Ron Roenicke confirmed Lucroy's new timetable.

"We talked to the minor-league side to see what they have going on, and they’ve got some simulated games or BP starting the 11th," Roenicke said. "Luc would like to see some live pitching before so we’ll try to pick some spots before to see if we can get him feeling pretty comfortable before he starts some games.

"The timing of it, the way I look at it on the schedule, we have a lot of games left once he starts playing. So I think we’ll be OK with it."

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Brewers' Jonathan Lucroy no longer experiencing pain


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is progressing well in his recovery from a hamstring injury, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

"The pain already has gone away," Lucroy said. "Before, just standing around I would feel it. Now, it's already feeling a lot better." Lucroy had a platelet-enriched plasma infusion nearly two weeks ago, and credits that treatment for the turn-around. 

Despite the progress, Lucroy admitted he's going to take is slow during camp. "We're just going to take it slow," he said. "There's no rush. You don't want to go out and test it right away. These things can be nagging."

Lucroy will be able to take part in hitting and fielding drills, but will not be able to run at first. "I can do everything except for sprinting," Lucroy said. He'll eventually progress to the point where he's allowed to catch bullpen sessions. Once he's cleared to run, he'll start playing in games. 

The 28-year-old Lucroy hit .301/.373/.465 over 585 at-bats last year.


Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy (hamstring) to miss 4-6 weeks


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2015) The Brewers announced Wednesday that All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy is expected to miss 4-6 weeks due to a mild strain of his right hamstring.

Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash said Lucroy's agent called with the news of the injury, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The injury is at the top of the leg, where it attaches to the hip. Ash added Lucroy mentioned some soreness in that area at end of 2014 season, but the team had no concerns about the injury at the time. Lucroy told MLB.com the injury flared up when he ramped up his running two weeks ago. Lucroy received a PRP injection Tuesday to help with the healing.

Lucroy was examined Monday by Brewers head physician William Raasch, who initially diagnosed the injury. It was then confirmed Tuesday during a second opinion with Marlins medical director Dr. Lee Kaplan, per MLB.com.

Ash said Lucroy can do some hitting, fielding and throwing while he recovers from the injury. He just can't run or perform any activities that might put serious strain on his hamstring.

Ash said the Brewers are "very hopeful" Lucroy will be ready by opening day. Martin Maldonado is Lucroy's backup and catcher Juan Centeno is also on the 40-man roster. Brewers pitchers and catchers are expected to report for spring training Feb. 20. 

This is an unfortunate setback for Lucroy, who is coming off his first All-Star season. He also finished fourth in the NL MVP voting and totaled a league-leading 53 doubles in 2014.

Lucroy has been a very good offensive catcher since 2013. Over the last two seasons, he is batting .291 with a .357 on-base percentage, .460 slugging percentage and .817 OPS.

However, before his recent cold spell, the catcher hit .357/.444/.443 in 70 September at-bats. Lucroy has hit .296/.369/.461 with 13 home runs, 68 RBI and a league-leading 52 doubles in 577 at-bats.
