Lucroy (toe) has been cleared to catch bullpens but still hasn't been cleared to run, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Running represents the last remaining hurdle for Lucroy, who remains without a firm timetable for return at this point. He's nearing the four week mark of his initial 4-to-6 week timetable, and it still appears possible that he'll return at some point over the next couple weeks.

Lucroy underwent a follow-up X-ray on Monday, which showed good signs of healing in his broken big toe, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Now two weeks removed from suffering the injury, Lucroy has been lifting weights with his upper body and getting in some light lifting with his lower half. He still has a ways to go, but Lucroy is hoping to make it back closer to the front end of his initial 4-to-6 week estimated recovery timetable.

Lucroy has been able to work out while recovering from his broken big toe, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Lucroy's return is still several weeks away, but it's a good sign that he is able to get in some exercises, including weight lifting with his upper body and light lifting with his lower half. His original timetable had him returning in 4-to-6 weeks after breaking his toe Apr. 20, so he could be back on the field later this month barring any setbacks in his recovery.

Lucroy will likely be out 4-to-6 weeks after breaking his toe in Monday's game, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports.

A timetable for Lucroy's return is now known, and he will not play again for the Brewers until late May or early June -- a tough break for both the struggling Milwaukee squad and Lucroy's fantasy owners. Martin Maldonado will serve as the Brewers' primary catcher until Lucroy is able to get back on the field.

The Brewers placed Lucroy (toe) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday.

It's not clear exactly how long Lucroy will be sidelined after breaking his left big toe in Monday's loss to the Reds, but he will miss at least the next two weeks. Martin Maldonado will be the Brewers' primary catcher in Lucroy's absence.

Lucroy sustained a fractured left toe in Monday's loss to the Reds and will be placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday.

The nightmare season continues for the Brewers, who dropped to a league-worst 2-11 on Monday and already lost star center fielder Carlos Gomez (hamstring) to the DL just days earlier. Lucroy emerged as one of the game's premier backstops last season, but had gotten off to a rotten 7-for-45 (.156 average) at the plate before departing from Monday's game after taking a foul ball off the foot. The Brewers have yet to reveal an official timetable length for Lucroy, but a fracture would seem to imply that it will be well beyond the 15-day minimum. Martin Maldonado is slated to serve as the Brewers' primary catcher until further notice, while Juan Centeno will be recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs to serve as his backup.

The Brewers confirmed that Lucroy was removed from Monday's game against the Reds due to a left foot injury, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

As was suggested earlier, Lucroy likely sustained the injury when his foot was struck by a foul ball in the sixth inning. There's still no definitive word on the extent of the injury, so Lucroy will retain a day-to-day tag until manager Ron Roenicke updates his condition. Martin Maldonado stepped in to replace Lucroy on Monday and would assume primary backstop duties for the Brewers if the injury sidelines the All-Star catcher for future contests.

Lucroy was removed from Monday's game against the Reds in the top of the seventh inning due to a suspected left foot injury, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Lucroy fouled a pitch off his foot during his at-bat in the bottom of the sixth, which likely explains his early removal. There likely won't be any definitive word on his status until after the game, so it remains too early to speculate if the injury will keep him out of the lineup Tuesday. Martin Maldonado came off the bench to replace Lucroy behind the plate.

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

Lucroy has still yet to homer or knock in a run in 2015, but he is showing signs of turning things around at the plate, tallying three hits and walking twice in his last two games. He continues to hit second for the Brewers despite his early-season struggles.
