Out since mid-April with a broken toe, Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy has been cleared to begin a minor-league rehab assignment Wednesday at Single-A.

Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Lucroy is scheduled to play four games there and then, barring a setback, rejoin the Brewers’ active roster Monday.

Lucroy was off to a slow start before the injury, but he’s been one of the best all-around catchers in baseball since 2012 and last season finished fourth in the MVP voting.

Martin Maldonado has served as Lucroy’s primary fill-in and Brewers catchers have combined to hit just .151 this season. Lucroy hit .301 with 13 homers and a league-leading 53 doubles last year.
