Fantasy Impact: Lucroy wasn't off to a particularly fast start, but this is still a huge blow for a struggling Brewers team already missing Carlos Gomez. Martin Maldonado will take over most of the time at catcher for the Brewers, but he isn't a particularly attractive fantasy option.

Lucroy went 1-for-3 on the day but made his one hit count in the Brewers 5-4 win over St. Louis. Lucroy got the hit on a ground ball to second baseman Kolten Wong, scoring Carlos Gomez after Wong's throwing error allowed the Brewers to take a 5-2 lead in the seventh inning.

Fantasy Impact: Lucroy is struggling big time batting .067. Sometimes a simple scratch single is all it takes to get a player rolling. He's one of the top fantasy catchers in baseball and should return to his All-Star form soon.
