Brewers Injury Update: Jonathan Lucroy out with sore hamstring

By on 8/08/2014 08:22:00 PM

Milwaukee Brewers All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy was held out of the lineup on Friday night due to a sore hamstring, reports Andrew Gruman of Fox Sports Wisconsin:

Manager Ron Ronenicke said that the move was just precautionary, so Lucroy should be back in the lineup within the next couple of days. Martin Maldonado started in place of Lucroy on Friday against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Lucroy has started 95 games this year, third most among catchers in the majors, trailing only Salvador Perez and Miguel Montero.

The 28-year-old has been one of the most valuable players in the league this year, so the Brewers can’t afford to lose him for long. Lucroy is batting .307/.374/.493 this season, totaling 4.2 WAR.

Milwaukee is clinging to a one-game lead in the NL Central over the St. Louis Cardinals and recently lost starting pitcher Matt Garza to an oblique strain.
