Jonathan Lucroy left Monday night’s game early a half-inning after taking a foul ball squarely off the toes of his left foot while catching. He finished the inning and flew out in his next at-bat but then was lifted in favor of Martin Maldonado. Lucroy limped out of the batter’s box and down the first base line on the play.
Following Monday’s game, the Brewers tweeted the following worst-case scenario news.
Catcher Jonathan Lucroywill be placed on the 15-day disabled list tomorrow with a fractured left toe. Catcher Juan Centenoto be recalled.

In the off-season, the Brewers claimed Juan Centeno off waivers from the New York Mets. Centeno is on the 40-man roster and will join the team in Milwaukee tomorrow.
Entering play Monday, Centeno was hitting a mere .192 in 27 plate appearances across seven games for the Triple-A Colorado Springs Sky Sox.
Centeno, 25, made his MLB debut back in 2013 for the Mets and has a career batting average of .225 in 14 games.
