Brewers’ Jonathan Lucroy Says Wife Getting Threats Over His Injury
(NEW YORK) -- Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy was off to a great start to the 2012 season before breaking his hand in a hotel room accident Sunday night. Lucroy said on WSSP-AM 1250 that he was reaching under the bed for a sock when his wife, Sarah, shifted a suitcase that struck his hand and resulted in the injury. Lucroy claims his wife has been getting threats via Facebook since then.
The 25-year old was batting .345 with five home runs and 30 runs batted in. Lucroy will have a pin inserted into his right hand today and is expected to miss up to six weeks.
"It's been a battle for me, personally, because there's no one to blame, and my wife it getting killed by this," Lucroy said. "It's not like she's not hurt enough already, not feeling guilty enough already. I really wish people would leave her alone, leave us alone, just let us try to move forward, and get this behind us, because this been a brutal couple of days."
Heading into Thursday night, the Brewers were 22-28, which is good for fourth place in the NL Central division.
