Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy will miss 4-6 weeks due to a mild strain of his right hamstring.
Lucroy began dealing with a irritated hamstring a few weeks ago when he upped his running. On the long side the problem could cause him to miss a portion of spring training but should have little effect on his ability to be ready to go for the Brewers season opener on April 6.

The 28-year-old Lucroy put together a fine 2014 season hitting .301/.373/.465 with 13 home runs and 69 RBI. The Brewers have been planning to give him additional time at first base this season but that may be pushed back if he misses a large portion of spring training.
