Jonathan Lucroy hit his 20th homer and knocked in three runs Wednesday against the A's.

Lucroy homered in the fourth. In the seventh, with two outs and men on second and third, the A's made the curious decision to walk Adrian Beltre to bring up Lucroy, a right-handed hitter of similar (if not great) effectiveness. Lucroy doubled in two runs to bust the game open. He has seven homers and 14 RBI in 15 games for the Rangers.

Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-5 with two homers and five RBI in the Rangers' 8-5 defeat of the Tigers.

Lucroy upped his season total to 19 homers, surpassing his career high of 18 from 2013. Six of those have come in the 10 games since he arrived in Texas. The Rangers are 6-2 in his eight starts thus far.

Jonathan Lucroy is getting the day off Thursday.

Lucroy has four home runs in eight games with the Rangers, but he'll take a breather in Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Rockies. Robinson Chirinos is starting at catcher and batting ninth. Carlos Beltran is also getting a day of maintenance.

Jonathan Lucroy pounded a solo shot on Wednesday, his fourth home run in seven games since joining the Rangers.

The fifth-inning homer came off Jorge De La Rosa and was his 17th on the season. Lucroy has hit the ground running with his new team. He is batting .295/.355/.500 overall in 103 games.
Aug 11 - 12:48 AM

Jonathan Lucroy is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Rockies.

Aug 9 - 11:35 AM

Jonathan Lucroy hit two solo home runs and the Rangers held off the Astros 3-2 on Saturday.

Lucroy hit a solo jack in the sixth inning to tie the score, and his second solo bomb of the night extended the Rangers' lead to two runs. The backstop now has three home runs and four RBI in his first four games with his new club. He's certainly endearing himself to the new fan base as well.

Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Rangers' lineup Friday.

It's his first day off since joining his new club. Robinson Chirinos will do the catching.
Aug 5 - 4:01 PM

Jonathan Lucroy hit his first home run as a member of the Rangers to help lead them to a 5-3 win over the Orioles on Thursday.

The homer, a solo shot in the second inning, was Lucroy's only hit in four at-bats. He's now got two hits in 10 at-bats since the trade. Between the Brewers and Rangers, Lucroy has 14 home runs, 52 RBI and 50 runs scored to go with a .296/.357/.483 line overall.
Aug 4 - 10:17 PM

Rangers acquired C Jonathan Lucroy and RHP Jeremy Jeffress from the Brewers in exchange for OF Lewis Brinson, RHP Luis Ortiz and a player to be named later.

After Lucroy vetoed a trade to the Indians and the Mets dropped out of the running, it seemed inevitable that the catcher would wind up with the Rangers. He gives the club a big upgrade behind the plate and is also under contract cheaply for next season.
Aug 1 - 5:26 PM

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, catcher Jonathan Lucroy has been traded to the Rangers.

Lewis Brinson and Luis Ortiz, the Rangers' No. 2 and No. 3 prospects are part of the return package for Milwaukee. Joey Gallo apparently is not. There should be something official soon with the 4:00 p.m. ET deadline fast approaching.
Aug 1 - 3:49 PM

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Mets are out on Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy.

There's been some chatter that the Mets could pursue Lucroy in addition to Jay Bruce, but it appears that they will only make one blockbuster deal before Monday's 4 p.m. ET deadline. Assuming the Mets are out of the mix, the Rangers are the logical landing spot for Lucroy. There could always be a mystery team in the mix.
Aug 1 - 3:31 PM

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Mets are still in talks to acquire Jonathan Lucroy.

That is on top of their soon-to-be-completed trade for Reds outfielder Jay Bruce. Lucroy is also known to be drawing serious interest from the Rangers. The 30-year-old catcher has batted .299/.359/.482 with 13 home runs and 50 RBI in 95 games this season for the Brewers. He is earning $4 million in 2016 with a bargain $5.25 million club option for 2017.
Aug 1 - 12:55 PM

According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, the Rangers "keep plugging away" on Jonathan Lucroy.

Crasnick says the Brewers "might have to lower their expectations," but there seems to be momentum toward a deal between the two clubs. Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reported Sunday evening that the Mets have moved on from Lucroy. The 30-year-old catcher is slashing .299/.359/.482 with 13 home runs and 50 RBI in 95 games this season for Milwaukee. He's earning $4 million in 2016 with a $5.25 million club option for 2017.
Aug 1 - 10:08 AM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Mets are no longer in the mix for Jonathan Lucroy.

The Rangers appear to be his strongest suitor at the moment, though other teams are in the mix as well. It looks as though the Mets will shop elsewhere for a potential upgrade behind the dish before Monday's trade deadline.
