Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy suffered a fractured toe during Monday's game against Cincinnati and on Tuesday was placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Lucroy was hurt in the sixth inning of the 6-1 loss when a foul tip off the bat of Cincinnati's Zack Cozart hit him on the left toe.
"I've been hit a million times on my feet," said Lucroy after the game. "That's the first time I've ever seen a catcher break their toe. It had to be me. It's par for the course right now."
The Brewers entered Tuesday off to the worst start in franchise history at 2-11.
Lucroy missed a portion of spring training because of a hamstring injury and this season is hitting just .156 in 12 games with two runs batted in.
The 28-year-old veteran played a career-high 153 games last year and batted .301 with 13 home runs and 69 runs batted in. He set a record for doubles by a catcher with 53, was an All-Star for the first time and finished fourth in the MVP balloting.
Lucroy is a career .282 hitter with 59 homers and 296 RBI in 619 big league games over six seasons, all with Milwaukee.
The Brewers recalled catcher Juan Centeno from Triple-A Colorado Springs to fill the roster spot, while Martin Maldonado will handle most of the starting duties.
Milwaukee on Tuesday also placed second baseman Scooter Gennett on the 15-day DL because of a lacerated finger.
