Apr 13 - 12:43 PM

Jonathan Lucroy finished 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI against the Angels on Tuesday.

Apr 9 - 11:58 AM

Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the Rangers have "tabled" extension talks with Jonathan Lucroy.

Wilson also had nothing to report on talks with Yu Darvish. Without extensions, both players will hit the market next winter. The two-time All-Star hit .267 while splitting time with Buster Posey behind the plate for Team USA at the World Baseball Classic. He'll earn $5.25 million in the last year of his deal.

Jonathan Lucroy will draw the start over Buster Posey for the World Baseball Classic final against Puerto Rico on Wednesday.

This one is for all the marbles. Outside of the Posey for Lucroy swap, the rest of Wednesday's lineup is expected to be the same one that the United States trotted out against Japan for Tuesday's semifinal showdown.
Mar 22 - 5:05 PM

Jonathan Lucroy hit a two-run double in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Royals.

The double was Lucroy's first of spring training. In terms of fantasy, he is one of the best in the bigs and could be in for a huge offensive season if he can stay healthy. After the Brewers traded him to the Rangers last summer, he socked 11 home runs in just 152 at-bats.
Feb 25 - 6:24 PM

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Rangers have not discussed a contract extension with Jonathan Lucroy.

The sides aren't talking yet but Heyman believes they will in the near future. Lucroy was arguably the league's top offensive catcher last season, collecting a .292 average to go with a career-high 24 homers and 81 RBI. If a deal isn't reached, Lucroy will hit the market next offseason.
Feb 23 - 4:48 PM

Rangers exercised their $5.25 million club option on C Jonathan Lucroy.

This one might be the easiest call of them all. Lucroy batted .276/.345/.539 with 11 home runs and 31 RBI over the Rangers' final 47 regular-season games after being acquired from the Brewers at the August 1 trade deadline. He'll open the 2017 season as the starting catcher in Texas and a highly-valuable fantasy commodity.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels confirmed Tuesday that Jonathan Lucroy's $5.25 million club option for 2017 will be exercised.

An obvious move for the Rangers, who acquired Lucroy from the Brewers at the August 1 trade deadline and watched him bat .276/.345/.539 with 11 home runs and 31 RBI over Texas' final 47 regular-season games. Lucroy then went 1-for-12 in the team's ALDS loss to the Blue Jays. He'll open the 2017 campaign as the Rangers' starting catcher, and as a highly-valuable fantasy chip.

The 30-year-old is hitting .280 with 10 homers, 30 RBI and 18 runs scored since the trade that sent Lucroy from the Brewers to the Rangers in early August. He's hitting .293/.356/.499 with 23 homers and 80 RBI overall.
