Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Reds.
Lucroy's been on an absolute tear during his current six-game hitting streak, hitting four doubles and three homers while driving in seven over that span. This is more like the hitter we're used to seeing, as compared to the impostor who's working with a .251/.317/.381 line for the season. Aug 29 - 1:36 AM

Date:

Jonathan Lucroy homered twice, finishing 3-for-4 with three RBI and three runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

Lucroy has now homered three times in his last two games, giving him seven home runs overall. The catcher is hitting .248/.315/.375 with 32 RBI and 42 runs scored in 83 games this season.

Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-5 with an RBI double and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Nationals.

Lucroy entered Friday's action hitting just .151 (8-for-53) so far this month. The 29-year-old has seen an increase in strikeouts and ground balls this season, which helps explain why his numbers haven't been anywhere near what we have seen in the past. His health has also likely contributed to his down year.

Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Brewers' lineup Wednesday.

He's just getting a breather with it being a day game after a night game. Martin Maldonado is behind the dish in Lucroy's place.

Jonathan Lucroy is out of the Brewers' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Padres.

Martin Maldonado will start behind the plate in the matinee game. It's just a day of rest for Lucroy, who's wrapping up a frustrating and disappointing 2015 season. He did hit a homer Wednesday night off Ian Kennedy.
Aug 6 - 11:14 AM

Jonathan Lucroy hit his fourth homer Wednesday off the Padres' Ian Kennedy.

Lucroy still isn't hitting the ball with authority nearly as often as he did last year, but he is batting .271 with a couple of hours in 18 games since the All-Star break. That's some reason for optimism that he can still serve as a top fantasy catcher the rest of the way.
Aug 6 - 12:47 AM

Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-4 and swiped his first base of the season in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

Lucroy was one of the few bright spots in the Brewers offense on a day where they were shutout by Jake Peavy and company. The hard-hitting backstop is now hitting .257/.317/.350 with three homers and 22 RBI in 61 games on the season.
Jul 29 - 9:34 PM

Jonathan Lucroy went 1-for-4 with a single in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

As a team, the Brewers managed just four total hits in the game. Lucroy's single was one of them. Quiet game on the whole for the Brew Crew. This season, the catcher is hitting .248/.312/.366 with three homers and 20 RBI. He missed a significant early chunk of the year with injury and if he can stay healthy, he's a better offensive player than those numbers would indicate.
Jul 26 - 8:08 PM

Jonathan Lucroy revealed Tuesday that he proposed a long-term contract extension to the Brewers in January.

"It was a proposal that would have kept me here for the rest of my career, most likely," Lucroy said. "We gave it to them in early January, and when we got to spring training, they informed us they weren't interested in doing anything at this point in time." Lucroy wouldn't reveal the details of the proposal, but it's really a moot point now. It's not surprising that the Brewers weren't in a rush to extend the catcher, as Lucroy is in the third season of a very team-friendly five-year, $11 million contract. The deal also includes a $5.25 million club option for 2017.
Jul 21 - 8:22 PM

Jonathan Lucroy hit his second home run of the season Tuesday against the Braves.

The solo homer was the only run the Brewers got against Braves starter Manny Banuelos. It was a long time coming for Lucroy, whose first and only other homer came on June 5. After taking some time to get his feet under him, Lucroy has hit better in recent weeks. He's now batting .250/.313/.335 and, health willing, should have a much better second half of the season.

Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Brewers' lineup Monday.

It's a simple day off. Martin Maldonado is behind the plate while Lucroy rests.

It's simply a day of rest. Martin Maldonado is behind the plate in Lucroy's place.
Jul 1 - 2:49 PM

Jonathan Lucroy tallied four hits in five at-bats, scoring twice and knocking in two runs to help the Brewers take down the Phillies on Monday.

All four hits were singles. He singled and scored in the first and third innings, then hit run-scoring singles in the sixth and eighth innings. The catcher missed about a month and a half of the season due to a broken toe and has only been able to muster a .235/.284/.302 batting line with one home run and 14 RBI on the year.
Jun 29 - 10:42 PM

Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Brewers starting lineup on Saturday.

The hard-hitting backstop gets a routine day of rest with an afternoon game after a night game. Martin Maldonado will start behind the dish for the Brewers and bat eighth against Chad Bettis and the Rockies.
Jun 20 - 12:11 PM

Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-4 with three RBI and a walk in Monday's loss to the Royals.

Lucroy got the Brewers on the board in the fifth with a two-run double and later added another RBI double during a ninth-inning rally which ultimately fell short. The 29-year-old has had some ups and downs since returning from a broken toe, but he's capable of being one of the top fantasy catchers the rest of the way.
