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.
