Lucroy went 2-for-4 with a walk and a run scored in Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals.

Lucroy has yet to record a hit two games into the regular season.

Lucroy is 0-for-8 through two games, but the Brewers have totaled just two runs as a team, so he is not the only one struggling at the plate. Lucroy was slowed by a hamstring injury early in spring training, but he suffered no setbacks after making his spring debut in mid-March, so consider him healthy at this time. Lucroy, who is expected to see some action at first base when he is not catching, is hitting second in the Brewers' batting order, so he will have ample opportunities to break out of his early mini-slump.

Lucroy said he had no ill effects after running the bases for the first time Wednesday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Lucroy is still not 100 percent, but he's logged a few starts at catcher and appears to be progressing as expected. While the team has not made anything official, at this point Lucroy looks to have a good chance to be ready for Opening Day.

Lucroy started at catcher Sunday for the second straight day and went 1-for-3 with a home run, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Lucroy is still not running at 100 percent, according to Brewers manager Ron Roenicke, but it's a good sign that he was able to get behind the plate back-to-back days with Opening Day still three weeks out. Lucroy hit second in the order in his first two spring games, which may have helped maximize his at-bats, but also could have provided a hint as to where he will slot into the batting order when the real games begin.

Lucroy (hamstring) made his spring debut for the Brewers on Saturday and said he'll definitely be ready for Opening Day, USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports.

Obviously it is not a lock that Lucroy will be available on Opening Day, as he could always suffer another injury or a setback with his hamstring issue. That said, it no longer seems necessary to put a discount on Lucroy's price tag on draft day, given the information at our disposal.

Lucroy is expected to catch a few innings in another minor league game Sunday, and if all goes well, could make his Cactus league debut as early as Monday. Lucroy ran the bases Thursday, and didn't have any problems, though he wasn't running 100 percent either. Assuming all goes well, he could be ready for Opening Day.

Lucroy (hamstring) could be playing in Cactus League games by the end of the week, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports.

Milwaukee's starting catcher seems to be making excellent progress in his recovery, and if he can be had a discount in drafts, owners should probably act on that opportunity. It is starting to sound more and more like Lucroy could be available for Opening Day, and a return to game action this week would do a lot to instill confidence in that sentiment.

Lucroy (hamstring) is progressing well and might start playing in games sooner than expected, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Lucroy was treated with a platelet-rich plasma injection after being diagnosed with a hamstring strain in February, and it seems the treatment has done wonders. It's uncertain when he may be cleared to resume running, but Lucroy appears on track to be ready for game action closer to the front end of his 4-to-6 week estimated recovery timetable. He's expected to receive some at-bats in spring games next week.

Lucroy (hamstring) is expected to receive some at-bats in minor league spring games next week, Greg Matzek of WTMJ Milwaukee reports.

Lucroy is making progress as he works his way back from a strained hamstring, but the Brewers will remain cautious with him, and he may not run next week even if he is able to take swings. Lucroy still has a few steps to complete in his recovery, but with over a month to go before the regular season kicks off, fantasy owners and Brewers fans should be optimistic about his chances of being ready for Opening Day.
