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."
Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy takes batting practice Saturday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/9/15) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy was able to take early batting practice Saturday for the first time since breaking his big toe on his left foot, according to MLB.com.
Lucroy, who is currently on the 15-day DL with the injury, is still at least 2-3 weeks away from his return, but it's a start.
"Anytime it's broken bones, you just have to cross days off the calendar. There's no speeding it up, really," manager Craig Counsell said.
Lucroy is hitting .133 with one RBI in 45 at-bats this season.
Brewers GM reluctant to trade Jonathan Lucroy, Jean Segura
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/7/15) Brewers general manager Doug Melvin seems reluctant to trade catcher Jonathan Lucroy and shortstop Jean Segura, even though both players could garner interest at the trade deadline, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
"Those are two tough positions to fill," Melvin said. "I guess you have to be open to everything. But you'd have to be overwhelmed. We have some pretty good shortstops in the system. But they are doing well in the minors (and Segura) is doing well in the majors. Those are positions that can take years to fill. We've got two young ones who are making (little) money."
The Pirates, Mets, Mariners and Padres could all be in the market for shortstop help. However, Melvin suggested it is going to take a pretty good haul for him to part with Segura, who is under team control through 2018.
Brewers' Jonathan Lucroy (toe) healing well, X-rays show
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/5/15) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy has X-rays Monday that showed good signs of healing, MLB.com reports.
"They see some signs of healing going on," Lucroy said Tuesday. "I'm happy. I'm not slacking off on any of the rehab stuff, trying to stay in baseball shape."
Lucroy hit the lineup in mid-April after fouling a ball off his toe, causing the toe to fracture. He was given a timetable of four-to-six weeks for recovery but hopes to be on the short side of that estimate. Lucroy has hit .133/.216/.178 with one RBI in 45 at-bats.
Report: Brewers are not willing to trade catcher Jonathan Lucroy
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/5/15) The Brewers have gotten off to a dreadful 8-18 start this season, which has already spurred a change in manager. Now, talks have started to swirl regarding when the team will start trading away some of its key players, and who those players are expected to be.
It seems as if All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy will not be among the players dealt away this summer, as an executive told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman last week that Lucroy is likely "untouchable".
This was reportedly confirmed on Tuesday, with the Brewers telling other teams looking for a deal that they will not be trading their starting catcher, according to ESPN.com.
Lucroy had gotten off to a slow start this season with just six hits in his first 45 at-bats, though he did finish fourth in the NL MVP voting last year. He has been on the disabled list since April 21 due to a toe injury.
|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.
