|Jonathan Lucroy wins game for Brewers |

(8/17/13) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy extended a hitting streak to six games Friday night during a 7-6 win over the Reds. Lucroy went 3 for 5 in the game with three RBI.
The backstop, batting third for Milwaukee, hit his 17th home run of the season. It was a two-run shot off Aroldis Chapman in the ninth inning to come from behind for the Brewers in the win.
Lucroy scored twice and added an RBI single in the third inning in the outstanding performance. He's gone 11 for 23 (.478) with four RBI over his six-game hitting streak.
|Jonathan Lucroy starts first game at first base |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/31/13) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy was starting at first base Wednesday against the Cubs, the first time in his career he has done so. The move was made in an effort to keep his bat in the lineup.
"I went to [manager Ron Roenicke] after Brauny went down," Lucroy told MLB.com. "I said, 'Look, I've got to stay in the lineup. I've got to. So what do I need to do?' We're going to go over there today and do some early work, and basically that's it. I'm just going to try to stop the ball and keep it in front of me. Don't try to be a Gold Glover or anything, just make the routine plays. Keep my bat in the lineup and see what happens."
Though Lucroy was initially hesitant to make the move mid-season, the team's lack of options at first base finally forced his hand. He indicated to reporters that could be open to playing first base more regularly moving forward as well.
"Being realistic, if you're going to screw up, this is a good time to screw up," said Lucroy. "This is a good year to do it because we're kind of out of it anyway. It’s a good time to get some experience out there, some game-speed stuff."
Lucroy is third on the team with an .825 OPS on the season, behind only Carlos Gomez and Ryan Braun.
|Jonathan Lucroy has four hits vs. Marlins |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/20/13) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy hit his 14th home run Saturday night against the Marlins.
Lucroy singled in the first, a solo homer in the third, a ground-rule double in the fourth and singled in the seventh. He finished 4 for 4 with a run scored and two RBI in a 6-0 win. He has a .286/.330/.493 line with 14 homers and 54 RBI in 290 at-bats.
|Not so surprisingly, Carlos Santana ranked No. 1 among catchers in standard Head-to-Head leagues last year. But No. 2 wasn't Buster Posey, Joe Mauer, Yadier Molina, Brian McCann or any of the other usual suspects. It was Jonathan Lucroy, who validated his breakthrough 2012 with a 2013 that was nearly as good. Yes, his batting average dropped 40 points to a still-respectable .280, but a slow start is largely to blame. From May 21 to the end of the season, he hit .303. He also homered at about the same rate he did in 2012. Obviously, his totals were better since he didn't miss two months with a broken hand this time around, but nothing stood out as an outlier. By the end of the year, his bat had become so indispensable to the Brewers that he got to play first base on his "off" days, a la Buster Posey. That won't necessarily continue with his supporting cast back at full strength coming out of spring training, but clearly, a second straight year of high-end production has earned Lucroy a higher level of trust within the organization. It should on Draft Day as well. While the skepticism was warranted a year ago, Lucroy is clearly a top-five catcher heading into 2014.
