Jonathan Lucroy finished 3-for-4 with two RBI in Wednesday's 6-4 defeat of the Cardinals.

Lucroy hit an RBI ground-rule double in the top of the first inning to open the game's scoring and then tied the game at 3-3 with a run-scoring single in the top of the fifth. He also smacked a leadoff single and scored in the fourth. It was the best performance of the year so far from Lucroy, who's now slashing .346/.393/.423 in 26 at-bats.

Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday versus the Astros.

He's simply receiving a day off. Martin Maldonado will catch Jimmy Nelson. Scooter Gennett is also on the bench Sunday, with Yadiel Rivera getting a start at second base.

SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports a three-team trade for Jonathan Lucroy was discussed between the Braves, Astros and Brewers last month.

The trade was reportedly abandoned due to Milwaukee's "exorbitant" asking price. Lucroy has been on the trading block all winter but the Brewers are still waiting to pull the trigger. The Astros have extra incentive to acquire a catcher in the wake of Max Stassi's recent hamate bone surgery. It's possible the deal will be revisited but nothing will come of it unless the Brewers are blown away by an offer.

Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.

Lucroy burned Carlos Rodon for a solo dinger in the third inning. It was his first of spring training. Earlier this week, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported that the Rangers were continuing to show interest in the 29-year-old Lucroy, though there is not true momentum toward a deal at this juncture. Injuries limited the veteran backstop to just 103 games in 2015. He hit a sub-par .264/.326/.391 in that space, but offers considerably more offensive thump than that when healthy.
Mar 16 - 8:33 PM

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Rangers "remain interested" in Jonathan Lucroy.

Rosenthal adds, however, that there have been "no recent talks" about a trade. Lucroy is under contract for $4 million in 2016 and he carries a bargain $5.25 million club option for 2017, so the rebuilding Brewers can practice patience. The 29-year-old catcher finished fourth in the National League MVP balloting in 2014, but he batted just .264/.326/.391 with seven home runs and 43 RBI in 103 games last season. Maybe he can get off to a hot start this year and elevate his trade value. Houston, Oakland, and Washington are also believed to have interest.

Jonathan Lucroy is back in camp after a bout of food poisoning.

While Lucroy had been listed on the injury report as dealing with the flu, he clarified Tuesday that it was actually food poisoning that laid him low. The 29-year-old backstop might play some first base later this spring, but manager Craig Counsell noted on Sunday that such a plan won't be implemented in the early going.
Mar 8 - 11:38 AM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Sunday that there are no immediate plans to play Jonathan Lucroy at first base during the first few weeks of spring training.

Counsell added that he doesn't know if Lucroy will get any work there at all during the spring season. With some elite catching prospects waiting in the wings and a full rebuild in place in Milwaukee, the prevailing wisdom is still that Lucroy will be dealt sooner rather than later.
Mar 6 - 4:44 PM

Jonathan Lucroy had an RBI single against the Cubs on Thursday.

Lucroy singled home Jacob Nottingham, who was recently acquired from the Athletics in the Khris Davis deal and could eventually take over as Milwaukee's primary catcher. It’s likely just a matter of time before Lucroy is traded elsewhere, but he appears likely to begin the season in Milwaukee.
Mar 3 - 6:07 PM

Brewers general manager David Stearns said Saturday that the acquisition of Jacob Nottingham doesn't impact Jonathan Lucroy.

While it doesn't sound as though this will speed up the timeline to deal Lucroy, having the catcher of the future in tow has to make the club feel more confident in the decision. Expect him to be dealt at some point before the trade deadline.
Feb 13 - 2:03 PM

Brewers general manager David Stearns reiterated Tuesday that the club doesn't have anything in the works regarding a Jonathan Lucroy trade.

In other words, nothing has changed since the weekend, when Stearns said that he expects Lucroy to be with the team when spring training begins. The Nationals, Rangers, and Astros have all been mentioned as possible suitors and the 29-year-old is a natural trade chip for the rebuilding Brewers, but nothing appears imminent.
Feb 2 - 3:33 PM

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Nationals are one of eight teams on Jonathan Lucroy's no-trade list.

They're also one of the teams that have expressed interest in acquiring the 29-year-old catcher, who is almost certain to be traded at some point by the rebuilding Brewers. Lucroy could use his limited no-trade protection to veto a deal or use it as leverage to work out a pre-trade extension with a team trying to land him -- like, say, the Nationals. He is under contract with Milwaukee for $4 million in 2016 with a $5.25 million club option for 2017. Those are bargain rates for a guy who finished fourth in the National League MVP voting in 2014.
Feb 1 - 3:32 PM

Brewers general manager David Stearns said Sunday that he fully expects Jonathan Lucroy to still be with the club when spring training begins.

It's certainly a possibility that Stearns is being coy here, but there's been no indication that a trade of Lucroy has been close at any point this offseason. The Rangers, Nationals and Astros have been mentioned as possible landing spots for the catcher, and the likelihood is good that Lucroy will be dealt at some point over the next year. However, the odds look to be pretty high that he'll still be with Milwaukee on Opening Day.
