Brewers set tentative plan for catcher Jonathan Lucroy
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3:37 pm ET) The Brewers have set a temporary plan for catcher Jonathan Lucroy to return to action, according to MLB.com.
Lucroy, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a toe injury, received good news on his injury on Monday after undergoing a second X-ray. Manager Craig Counsell has a plan in place to get Lucroy some minor league at-bats this week to help him be ready for the team's upcoming road trip, starting June 1.
Counsell doesn't have a specific timetable in place, however.
"I don't want to say for sure. He's making big progress every day now. I'm just going to let him make that progress. It has a chance to be pretty soon," Counsell said.
Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy could return next week
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/24/15) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy, who has a toe injury, said he expects to be back in the lineup by the club's next road trip at the latest, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
Lucroy has a scheduled X-ray on his big toe Monday which will determine whether the fracture has healed or not. It's possible that Lucroy returns next week, though the worst-case scenario appears to be that he's back for Milwaukee's road trip to St. Louis on June 1.
"It's feeling pretty good," he said. "I'm basically doing everything now. I'm getting close. I should be able to start playing soon. If I was guessing, I'd say I'll be back by our next road trip.
"I'm really excited. I can't wait to get back out there."
Lucroy, in 12 games this year, is slashing .133/.216/.178.
Rival teams looking to struggling Brewers for possible deals
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/22/15) With the Brewers looking more and more like eventual sellers, rival teams are saying pitchers Matt Garza and Kyle Lohse have limited trade value, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Early on, teams seem to be preferring Lohse due to his pending free agency at the end of the season, and his excellent clubhouse presence. Both pitchers have struggled this season, each with an ERA over 5.00 in nine starts.
Heyman also notes that teams are unsure if the Brewers would consider trading young shortstop Jean Segura, who is currently on the disabled list with a broken finger. There seems to also be uncertainty whether catcher Jonathan Lucroy or outfielder Carlos Gomez would be available, though Gomez would probably be the most likely to go since his contract is up after the 2016 season.
Braves inquiry about Jonathan Lucroy rebuffed by Brewers
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) With catcher Christian Bethancourt having a poor start to the season, the Braves inquired about Brewers starting catcher Jonathan Lucroy, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. However, the Braves were told he was unavailable.
Bethancourt began the season as the Braves starting catcher, but he was quickly replaced by veteran A.J. Pierzynski after he struggled at and behind the plate.
Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (toe) can catch bullpen sessions
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/15/15) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy was cleared to catch bullpen sessions on Friday. Lucroy has been on the disabled list since April 21 with a toe injury.
Lucroy still has to try running, according to MLB.com. The team has not provided a clear timetable for Lucroy to make his return.
"The running part's a big one," Lucroy said. "When we get to that, then we'll start talking about a return date. We'll have to wait and see on that one."
|2014 summary: Already considered one of the top catchers in Fantasy, Jonathan Lucroy took it to another level in 2014, not only getting his batting average back over .300 after a dip in 2013 but also more than doubling his career high with 53 doubles, a record for a catcher. He finished as the top catcher in Head-to-Head points leagues, and even in Rotisserie, where doubles don't count for anything, he was second.|
Playing time status: The Brewers are motivated to keep Lucroy's bat in the lineup, giving him occasional starts at first base. His numbers slipped a little in the second half, but that may have been due to him wearing down over the course of 585 at-bats, also tops among catchers.
2015 outlook: After three consecutive seasons of elite-level production, Lucroy's value to Fantasy owners should be pretty clear by now. You'll find catchers who hit more home runs, but Lucroy's more well-rounded skill set gives him a clear edge in the rankings. Buster Posey is about the only catcher you might consider drafting ahead of him, making Lucroy worth targeting as early as Round 4 in mixed leagues.
