Lucroy has an appointment with Dr. William Raasch in Milwaukee on Wednesday for an evaluation of his fractured right hand. Lucroy is not expected to require surgery, but his hand will be placed in a cast.
Roenicke said he trusts that Lucroy told the truth about how he was hurt. Lucroy said he was hurt when a suitcase fell off his hotel room bed onto his hand, leading many skeptics to ask, "Really?"
"I asked him, basically, [the same thing]," said Roenicke, whose son suffered the same injury punching the bench during his freshman year in high school.
Strange injuries are simply a fact of baseball, Roenicke said. He was there the day in May 2010 when Angels designated hitter Kendry Morales fractured his left ankle celebrating a game-winning grand slam. He needed two surgeries and missed a season and a half.
"It doesn't surprise me," Roenicke said. "There's so many things that can happen."
