Lucroy ready to go after rehab stint

Lucroy ready to go after rehab stint · Roster Report · Notes, Quotes
 

The return to action of catcher Jonathan Lucroy was postponed a day when the Brewers' scheduled game in Pittsburgh was rained out Tuesday.

Lucroy had been summoned from a rehab assignment with Class AA Huntsville and was in the starting lineup before the game was called off. Lucroy suffered a broken right pinkie finger early in spring training during a fielding drill and has been on the comeback trail since.

In four games with Huntsville, Lucroy batted .273 with four RBI but also walked six times to produce a .529 on-base percentage.

"It went pretty good," he said. "I faced some pretty good pitching down there. Jacksonville is the Double-A affiliate of the Marlins, and they've got a pretty good staff. They've got a pretty good team.

"I felt good in the box, was seeing the ball well. I hit the ball hard several times, took some walks. Defensively, I felt pretty good as well."

A few weeks after suffering the broken finger, Lucroy was allowed to catch some bullpen sessions and take part in other drills, but it wasn't the same as playing games with his teammates. Now, he can't wait to jump back in the fray.

"It feels great to be back with my teammates," he said. "I missed these guys. It's a fun group; a good bunch of guys. I hated being away from them, especially in a situation where I couldn't help out.

"We've got a good team here, and I'm looking forward to helping us win."
