Lucroy (hamstring) is in the lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

The Brewers were adamant that Lucroy's absence from Friday's lineup was strictly precautionary, and sure enough, the 28-year-old will return after missing just the one start. If the issue lingers, however, the team could opt to give him another respite from catching duties in the days ahead, with the team's next off day not until Aug. 18.

Lucroy is being held out of the lineup Friday as a precaution due to a sore hamstring, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

That said, the team could take further precaution and hold Lucroy out again Saturday if it has any reservations about his health, in which case Martin Maldonado would draw another start behind the plate.
