According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Astros are among the teams with interest in free agent catcher Jonathan Lucroy.
A deal with Lucroy would likely mean pushing Brian McCann and Evan Gattis into a platoon role at DH. Lucroy has been a better defensive catcher than both of them, but he actually struggled a bit in that department this past season and the 31-year-old also batted just .265 with a .716 OPS and only six home runs over 123 total games between the Rangers and Rockies. The 2017 World Series champs will probably be looking for a discount here. Nov 15 - 9:01 AM

Thomas Harding of MLB.com writes that the Rockies are "expected" to pursue a reunion with impending free agent catcher Jonathan Lucroy.

Lucroy told reporters in early September that he would "absolutely" be interested in returning to Colorado, so there's some mutual affection here. The veteran backstop finished strong after the July 30 trade that sent him from the Rangers to the Rockies, slashing .310/.429/.437 over his final 46 games. He hit just .242/.297/.338 over his first 77 games this season with Texas.

Jonathan Lucroy homered, tripled and walked versus the Marlins on Monday.

The homer was just Lucroy's second in 41 games with the Rockies, but he's hitting a solid .301 with 19 walks in 158 plate appearances for the club. The Rockies would probably benefit from moving him up closer to the top of the order and dropping Gerardo Parra down to the eighth spot.

Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-4 in a loss to the Giants on Wednesday.

All three hits were singles. It's his second three-hit game of the past four games, and Lucroy is now hitting .286/.392/.387 since he came over to the Rockies after disappointing with the Rangers. The only complaint you could possibly have is the lack of pop, but Colorado won't complain about that average and on-base percentage from a premium position.

Jonathan Lucroy collected three singles with three runs scored and an RBI in Saturday's victory against the Padres.

Lucroy is on an extended hot streak, going 16-for-50 (.320) with seven RBI in 15 games dating back to Aug. 28, raising his average from .259 to .287. While he has been hot lately, his overall production since coming over to the Rockies has been a little disappointing giving his lack of power and the rarefied air of Denver.

Jonathan Lucroy said Wednesday that he is "absolutely" interested in re-signing with the Rockies.

Lucroy has rebounded nicely since the July 30 trade that moved him from Texas to Colorado, slashing .274/.388/.400 in 30 games with the Rockies after putting up a brutal .242/.297/.338 batting line in 77 games with the Rangers. "It’s been easy to fit in here," the 31-year-old impending free agent catcher told the Denver Post. "What I like is that this team is hungry and they all have the same goal in mind, and that’s to win a championship. I really feel that here. The guys have made me feel welcome and accepted me into the fold. ... I’d absolutely (be interested) in coming back."

Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-4 and drove in a pair of runs on Thursday as the Rockies topped the Dodgers.

Lucroy plated a run with a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning and chipped in an RBI single in the fifth. The veteran backstop has seen his bat perk up since the move to Colorado and is now hitting .253/.322/.354 with five homers and 35 RBI on the season.
Sep 8 - 1:48 AM

Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-4 and hit his first homer for the Rockies against the Tigers on Monday.

It was just his fifth homer in 343 at-bats this season. The Coors boost hasn't really materialized for Lucroy yet, but he is doing a great job of getting on base for his new team; with 10 walks and four HBPs in 77 plate appearances, his OBP stands at .416.
Aug 29 - 12:17 AM

Jonathan Lucroy is getting the day off Thursday against the Royals.

Tony Wolters will start at catcher and bat ninth versus Kansas City right-hander Jake Junis. It's just a routine breather for Lucroy, who is batting .294 with an .862 OPS since joining the Rockies. He hit .242 with a .635 OPS this year in Texas.

Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Rockies' lineup Sunday.

He's just getting a breather. Ryan Hanigan is behind the dish.
Aug 6 - 1:05 PM

Making his first start for the Rockies, Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-3 from the eighth spot in the order Thursday against the Mets.

Lucroy was expected to play Tuesday, but a stomach bug held him out. Batting eighth won't do much for his fantasy value, but with how he's performed this year, it's where he belongs until he proves different.
Aug 3 - 7:08 PM

Jonathan Lucroy was scratched from Tuesday's game against the Mets with a stomach illness.

Lucroy had been stated to make his Rockies debut on Tuesday night but came down with a stomach bug about an hour before first pitch. Ryan Hanigan spelled him behind the plate. Consider Lucroy day-to-day.
Aug 1 - 8:35 PM

Rockies acquired C Jonathan Lucroy from the Rangers for a player to be named later.

The 31-year-old backstop was set to be a free agent at season's end, so the Rangers were willing to flip him for whatever they could at the moment. He's hitting just .242/.297/.338 with four homers and 27 RBI on the season, but should welcome a return to the National League and the friendly confines of Coors Field.
Jul 30 - 9:30 PM

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Rockies have acquired catcher Jonathan Lucroy from the Rangers.

No word yet on the possible return from the Rangers, but it's a huge get for the Rockies. Even though he's having a down season, he should still be a massive upgrade behind the plate for a team that's fighting for a Wild Card berth in the National League.
Jul 30 - 9:18 PM

Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram hears that the rumor about Jonathan Lucroy possibly being traded to the Rockies "has legs."

Lucroy is hitting a disappointing .242/.297/.338 with four homers this season for Texas, and they don't think they'll lose much, if anything, by going with Robinson Chirinos and Brett Nicholas at catcher at this point. The Rockies, though, evidently view Lucroy as an upgrade over their Tony Wolters/Ryan Hanigan combo.
