The sides aren't talking yet but Heyman believes they will in the near future.

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.

Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day of rest. Robinson Chirinos will catch in Lucroy's place. The Rangers also have Nomar Mazara and Mitch Moreland on the bench with the Rays throwing lefty Blake Snell. Ryan Rua is at first base and Delino DeShields and Drew Stubbs will man the corner outfield spots.

Jonathan Lucroy hit his 20th homer and knocked in three runs Wednesday against the A's.

Lucroy doubled in two runs to bust the game open. He has seven homers and 14 RBI in 15 games for the Rangers.
