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.

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.

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.

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.

Jonathan Lucroy is absent from the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

It's simply a day off. Martin Maldonado is catching Taylor Jungmann while Lucroy rests.

Jonathan Lucroy will bat leadoff Thursday against the Nationals.

It's his first start out of the leadoff spot in his career. Jean Segura, who batted leadoff Wednesday, has been moved down to the No. 7 spot Thursday.
Jun 11 - 4:29 PM

Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-4 with two singles in Sunday's loss to the Twins.

Lucroy was the only offensive player to manage a multi-hit game for the Brewers. With the two singles, he's now hitting .222/.269/.306 with one homer and three RBI across 68 at-bats. Lucroy had missed almost six weeks with a fractured toe before being activated from the disabled list on June 1. It would be reasonable to expect a bit of rust, but he's already recorded 10 hits over his last 23 at-bats. So much for rust. He figures to be a top tier fantasy catcher moving forward.
Jun 7 - 5:33 PM

Jonathan Lucroy was 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Friday's 10-5 win over the Twins.

Lucroy launched a solo home run in the third inning before driving in another run with an infield single in the eighth. After going 0-for-4 in his return from a fractured toe on Monday, he has three straight multi-hit games. We expect him to be one of the top fantasy catchers the rest of the way.
Jun 6 - 12:08 AM

Jonathan Lucroy had two hits in the Brewers' loss to the Cardinals on Tuesday.

The Brewers managed just seven hits in the shutout, but the veteran backstop recorded his first multi-hit game since returning from a fractured left big toe. Lucroy may be given a day off Wednesday after catching both of his first two games off the disabled list, but he appears to be healthy and should return to being a productive catcher moving forward.
Jun 2 - 11:28 PM

Brewers activated C Jonathan Lucroy from the 15-day disabled list.

Lucroy is back with the Brewers on Monday night in St. Louis after missing close to six weeks with a fractured left big toe. He was off to a poor start before the injury, but the 28-year-old catcher should be a strong fantasy bet going forward. He hit .301/.373/.465 with 53 doubles, 13 home runs, and 69 RBI in 153 games last season.
Jun 1 - 3:25 PM

Jonathan Lucroy (toe) went 1-for-3 in his first minor league rehab game with High-A Brevard County on Thursday.

He caught five innings in the contest. Lucroy has been sidelined since April 20 due to a broken big toe on his left foot. He's going to remain on his rehab assignment through the weekend before rejoining the Brewers on Monday in St. Louis.
