Brewers activate Jonathan Lucroy from DL after 5-week absence for broken toe

ST. LOUIS -- The Milwaukee Brewers activated Jonathan Lucroy from the 15-day disabled list Monday after the All-Star catcher missed about five weeks with a broken left big toe.

Lucroy went 0-for-4 in a 1-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals in his return.

He was robbed of a hit on Jon Jay's running catch in center field in the first inning, then grounded out his last three trips.

Catcher Juan Centeno was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

The Brewers also purchased the contract of right-hander Tyler Cravy from Colorado Springs. Right-hander Tyler Wagner was optioned to Double-A Biloxi after Sunday's 17-inning win against Arizona.

Lucroy missed 38 games and had a four-game rehab assignment at Class A Brevard County. He was batting .133 in 12 games with one RBI for the Brewers in 2015.

Lucroy was fourth in the MVP balloting last year after batting .301 with 13 homers and 69 RBIs. He led the majors with 53 doubles.
