Jonathan Lucroy hurt by suitcase, needed X-rays, out 4-6 weeks

We’ve covered nearly a hundred weird injuries here at LBS, but some are so strange they still manage to shock us. What happened to Jonathan Lucroy certainly qualifies in that category.

According to MLB.com, the Brewers catcher hurt his right hand when a suitcase fell on it. Lucroy apparently was reaching for a lost sock under his hotel room bed Sunday night when his wife shifted a suitcase that fell on his hand.

Lucroy showed up to Dodger Stadium planning to play on Monday, but he couldn’t swing the bat like usual and was set to undergo X-rays.

“I didn’t want to say anything because I don’t like not playing,” he said on Monday, per Brewers Beat. “I want to play. But I went down and took some swings and it didn’t feel good, so I had to spill it.”

Poor guy. Sometimes you just have to let those hard-to-reach socks go.

UPDATE: The X-rays revealed a fracture on his right hand and he’s out 4-6 weeks. That must have been one heavy suitcase.
