Brewers activate C Lucroy

The Milwaukee Brewers activated catcher Jonathan Lucroy from the 15-day disabled list and designated catcher George Kottaras for assignment.

Lucroy was on the DL with a fractured fifth metacarpal in his right hand. He hasn't played since May 27.

In 43 games for the Brewers this season, Lucroy is batting .345 with 10 doubles, five home runs and 30 RBI.

Kottaras was hitting .209 with three homers and 12 RBI in 58 games this year.

The Brewers also recalled reliever Jim Henderson from Triple-A Nashville and optioned infielder Jeff Bianchi to the same club.
