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.
Jul 30 - 10:10 AM

MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports that the Rockies have expressed interest in Rangers catcher Jonathan Lucroy.

Colorado has also been connected to Tigers catcher Alex Avila and Braves catcher Kurt Suzuki. Lucroy is batting just .240/.293/.339 with four home runs and 26 RBI in 75 games this season, but he was an All-Star in 2016 and is only owed around $1.5 million. The 31-year-old catcher can become a free agent in November.
Jul 25 - 8:32 PM

According to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News, the Cubs may have more interest in acquiring Jonathan Lucroy than Yu Darvish.

Per Grant, the Cubs have made "at least a passing call" on Darvish but Lucroy is who they really have their eye on. The Cubs traded backup catcher Miguel Montero after his criticism of Jake Arrieta earlier this month, forcing Willson Contreras into a near-everyday role. Lucroy has struggled this year (.244 AVG with four homers in 266 at-bats) but has a proven track record and has plenty of experience playing in the NL Central after spending the first six-and-a-half years of his career with Milwaukee. His contract is up after this year, so he'd only be a rental.

Jonathan Lucroy hit an RBI double in the Rangers' loss to the Orioles on Monday.

His drive to center field in the top of the second inning scored Drew Robinson from first base for the Rangers' first and only run of the night. Lucroy was thrown out while trying to advance to third. He finished 1-for-3 in the game and holds a disappointing .258/.303/.365 overall batting line this year.
Jul 17 - 10:15 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rangers are "open" to trading Jonathan Lucroy.

Lucroy has been quite a disappointment this season, batting just .263/.311/.375 with four homers. Not only that, but Robinson Chirinos (.918, 12 homers) has been excellent and Brett Nicholas (.833, six homers) is raking at Triple-A. Rosenthal notes that the Rangers are "highly unlikely" to make Lucroy a qualifying offer this winter, so they might try to get something for him now and go with Chirinos and Nicholas behind the plate. It would certainly be selling low, but there would figure to be interest in the two-time All-Star even in the midst of a down year.
Jul 2 - 2:20 PM

Jonathan Lucroy is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Indians.

He'll take a seat against right-hander Mike Clevinger. Robinson Chirinos will start behind the plate and catch Tyson Ross.
Jun 27 - 2:41 PM

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

Lucroy will take a seat in favor of Robinson Chirinos with the Rangers playing an afternoon game after a night game. He'll be back in there for Sunday's series finale.
Jun 24 - 10:29 AM

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

Robinson Chirinos will start behind the plate and bat ninth versus Toronto right-hander Marcus Stroman. Lucroy owns a highly-disappointing .262/.306/.381 slash line in 54 games this season.
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.
