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.
