CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Jonathan Lucroy is "seen as a possibility to be moved" by the Brewers via trade this winter.
Milwaukee might be poised to rebuild over the offseason with new general manager David Stearns in place. One GM told Heyman that the Brewers "may have waited a year too long" to trade Lucroy after he followed up an MVP-caliber 2014 season with a disappointing, injury-plagued 2015 campaign. However, his contract is very reasonable and there would surely be some clubs willing to bet on a bounce-back should the Brewers indeed make him available. Oct 23 - 12:51 PM

Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-4 with an RBI single in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals.

Lucroy was the only Brewer to do much of anything against Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia. His RBI single in the sixth inning would drive home the team's only run. The 29-year-old catcher has been plagued by injury throughout the season, most recently suffering from a concussion that kept him on the bench for almost three weeks. He's hitting .268/.328/.396 with seven homers and 43 RBI over 97 games.

Jonathan Lucroy came off the bench Friday against the Cardinals and went 1-for-2 with an RBI single.

Lucroy, who recently missed nearly three weeks with a concussion, entered the game at first base in the bottom of the sixth inning. The Brewers aren't going to have him catch the rest of the way, but he could start at first base Saturday with left-hander Jaime Garcia on the mound for St. Louis.

Jonathan Lucroy singled off the bench and played first base Thursday against the Cardinals.

It was Lucroy's first appearance since he suffered a concussion 16 days ago. He'll apparently split time at first base with Adam Lind the rest of the way.

Jonathan Lucroy (concussion) has been cleared to play.

Lucroy has been sidelined since September 8 due to concussion symptoms. The Brewers have already ruled him out from catching for the rest of the year, but he'll be available off the bench Thursday and could start at first base as soon as Saturday.
Sep 24 - 5:58 PM

Jonathan Lucroy (concussion) is absent from the Brewers' starting lineup again on Thursday.

Lucroy has been cleared of concussion symptoms but is apparently still waiting on the official go-ahead. It sounds like a paperwork issue more than anything. Martin Maldonado will start at catcher and bat seventh on Thursday night in St. Louis.
Sep 24 - 3:44 PM

Jonathan Lucroy (concussion) has been medically cleared to play but the paperwork hasn't yet cleared the players' union to exit the concussion protocol.

That's a long way of saying he's close but not yet back on the field for the Brewers. When he does return, it won't be at catcher, as he's already been ruled out from catching for the rest of the year. With paperwork the only thing standing in the way, Lucroy should be back in the lineup in a day or two.
Sep 23 - 6:37 PM

Jonathan Lucroy (concussion) will not catch again this season.

He is, however, expected to play some first base, so the Brewers aren't shutting him down completely. Lucroy has experienced improvement with his concussion symptoms, but the club doesn't want to risk him taking another foul tip and having a setback. It's unclear when he'll be ready to play first base.
Sep 22 - 6:22 PM

Jonathan Lucroy (concussion) will catch a bullpen session on Sunday.

Lucroy is making slow progress as he works his way back from a concussion but has experienced improvement in recent days. He still has some hoops to jump through before being cleared to return to action.
Sep 20 - 12:15 PM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Thursday that Jonathan Lucroy is making small progress with his concussion.

Lucroy said Tuesday that he hasn't felt any improvement, so this is good news. He hasn't been ruled out for the remainder of the season, but the Brewers will obviously take every precaution.
Sep 17 - 5:34 PM

Jonathan Lucroy said Tuesday that he's felt no improvement in his recovery from a concussion.

Scary stuff. Lucroy took a hard foul tip off his mask last Tuesday and still isn't doing any sort of baseball activity. It might be time for the Brewers to shut him down for the remainder of the 2015 season.
Sep 15 - 5:11 PM

Jonathan Lucroy has officially been diagnosed with a concussion.

A specialist at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center made the diagnosis. Lucroy said he still feels "foggy." The Brewers can carry up to 40 players this month so they won't need to place Lucroy on the disabled list. Look for Martin Maldonado to fill in behind the plate.
Sep 12 - 5:31 PM

Jonathan Lucroy is scheduled to visit a concussion specialist at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center on Saturday.

The hard-hitting backstop has missed three consecutive games with post-concussion symptoms and hasn't seen any improvement. The Brewers are likely to play things cautiously down the stretch, so fantasy owners may want to look in a different direction over the final few weeks of the season.
Sep 11 - 7:37 PM

Jonathan Lucroy is still experiencing concussion symptoms.

Lucroy has missed three straight games with post-concussion symptoms and hasn't experienced any improvement. Given the uncertain nature of concussions, it would probably be wise for his fantasy owners not to count on him for much down the stretch.
Sep 11 - 5:41 PM

Jonathan Lucroy (concussion) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Friday.

He's missed three straight games with post-concussion symptoms and won't be cleared to return until those symptoms are totally gone. Martin Maldonado is behind the plate in Lucroy's place.
