Jun 24 - 10:29 AM

Jonathan Lucroy is out of the Rangers' starting lineup Thursday against the Blue Jays.

Jun 22 - 11:20 AM

Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day off. Robinson Chirinos will do the catching. Mike Napoli is also sitting out a day after his two-homer game, as the Rangers have Joey Gallo at first base, Adrian Beltre in the designated hitter spot and Pete Kozma at third.
Jun 18 - 12:26 PM

Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and three RBI against the Nationals on Friday.

Lucroy started hitting for average last month, but there wasn't much power to be found and the struggles of the Texas lineup have left him with awful run and RBI numbers to date. He's still a solid bet to be a top-five catcher going forward, but it'd help if some of the hitters around him stepped it up.

Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Rangers starting lineup on Saturday.

It's just a routine day of rest for the hard-hitting backstop. Robinson Chirinos is starting in his place and batting cleanup.
May 27 - 10:24 AM

Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI as the Rangers topped the Tigers on Sunday night in Detroit.

Lucroy got the Rangers on the board with an RBI single in the first inning, then he capped off the scoring with an RBI double in the ninth. His bat has started to heat up after his move to the cleanup spot in the lineup, and he's now hitting .277/.320/.412 with three long balls and 12 RBI.
May 21 - 11:51 PM

Jonathan Lucroy belted a solo home run in four trips to the plate Saturday in Detroit.

Lucroy has hit safely in a season-high eight straight games, as he continues to tear it up in the month of May. He is hitting a robust .353 (18-for-51) with four doubles, two homers, six RBI and a .926 OPS while striking out just two times. Lucroy also has an RBI in four consecutive outings.
May 20 - 11:08 PM

Jonathan Lucroy is out of the Rangers' starting lineup on Thursday against the Phillies.

It looks to be a routine day of rest. Robinson Chirinos will start at catcher and bat cleanup Thursday afternoon against Philadelphia right-hander Nick Pivetta. Mike Napoli is also on the bench Thursday, with Ryan Rua filling in at first base.
May 18 - 11:22 AM

Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-4 in Thursday's win over the Padres.

Lucroy had his third hit of the night in the fateful ninth inning, but he was replaced by a pinch-runner and didn't get to trot around the bases on Mike Napoli's eventual walk-off homer. Still, it was another good showing for the 30-year-old, who is now 10-for-28 with four multi-hit games since the calendar turned to May. Rangers manager Jeff Banister has noticed, batting Lucroy cleanup Thursday, a welcome sight for fantasy owners.
May 11 - 11:38 PM

Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles in Sunday’s loss to the Mariners.

Lucroy’s two doubles were the only extra-base hits the Rangers could manage in the defeat. He is up to four two-baggers on the season, now. Hopefully this game is a sign of things to come for the backstop, as his first month-plus of action has been nothing short of a nightmare. Even with those two hits on Sunday, Lucroy is slashing a paltry .225/.279/.350 triple-slash with two homers and six RBI across 80 at-bats. Fantasy owners should continue to hold steady despite the abysmal start. Last season, Lucroy hit 24 home runs and notched 81 RBI while splitting time between the Brewers and Rangers.
May 7 - 7:49 PM

Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer Tuesday against the Astros.

Lucroy took his former battery mate Mike Fiers deep in the fourth inning, which gave the Rangers a 5-0 lead at the time. It's been a rough go of it for the veteran catcher so far, but perhaps he's righting the ship a bit. He has hits in five of his last six games and has reached base in all six of those contests.
May 2 - 11:56 PM

Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

Lucroy's slow start and Robinson Chirinos' hot start has resulted in more days off than expected for the All-Star catcher in the early going. Mike Napoli is also resting Sunday, as Ryan Rua is at first base.
Apr 23 - 12:24 PM

Jonathan Lucroy is absent from the Rangers' lineup Friday.

Lucroy caught all 13 innings of Thursday's game, so he'll get some rest. Robinson Chirinos will do the catching. Elvis Andrus is also sitting out, as Jurickson Profar is filling in at shortstop.

Jonathan Lucroy is out of the Rangers' starting lineup on Wednesday in Oakland.

Robinson Chirinos gets the start at catcher and will bat eighth versus Athletics right-hander Jesse Hahn. Lucroy is slashing just .190/.227/.262 in the early going this season. He went 0-for-3 with a strikeout on Tuesday.
