Suitcase injury sidelines Brewers' Jonathan Lucroy for 4-6 weeks

Jonathan LucroyBrewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is expected to be placed on the disabled list on Tuesday after a suitcase fell on his hand. Seriously.

Lucroy told Adam McCalvy of that he was "reaching under his hotel bed Sunday night for a lost sock when his wife shifted a suitcase, which fell on Lucroy's hand."

According to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, X-rays revealed Lucroy had suffered a broken hand and will miss four to six weeks.

Lucroy went to Dodger Stadium for batting practice on Monday and couldn't grip the bat, so he was scratched and sent for X-rays.
