Roenicke expects Jonathan Lucroy to return in 4-6 weeks for Brewers
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/21/15) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said that the 4-6 week timetable for catcher Jonathan Lucroy (toe) to return is reasonable, reports MLB.com.|
Lucroy was added to the disabled list Tuesday with a toe injury from fouling off a pitch during Monday's game.
Lucroy was hitting .156 with no homers and two RBI.
Brewers send C Lucroy to DL, promote Centeno
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) What was anticipated has become reality - the Brewers have placed catcher Jonathan Lucroy on the disabled list with a toe injury.
Lucroy sustained the injury by fouling a pitch off his foot Monday night.
He has been one of many Brewers struggling at the plate. Lucroy owns a slash line of .156/.235/.200 with no homers and two RBI.
His placement on the DL has forced the team to promote catcher Juan Centeno from the minors. The 25 year old earned 40 major league at-bats with the Mets in 2013 and 2014.
Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy leaves game with toe injury
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy was forced to leave Monday's game against the Reds after taking a foul tip off his left foot, the team announced.
Lucroy was replaced by Martin Maldonado at catcher. Lucroy was 0 for 3 in the game before suffering the injury.
"I can't do anything about it. I have to wait for it to heal up," Lucroy said, per MLB.com. "Freak thing. You guys saw it. I don't know what else to say about it other than I have to overcome it, deal with it."
After the game, the Brewers announced Lucroy will be placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with a broken left toe and the team will call up catcher Juan Centeno.
"I've been hit a million times on my feet," Lucroy said. "I was just talking to 'Maldy' about it and he said the same thing: That's the first time I've ever seen a catcher break their toe. It had to be me. It's about par for the course right now."
Brewers' Ryan Braun bats leadoff for first time in career
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun was slotted in the leadoff position in the team's starting lineup on Saturday, the first time in his career he's batted leadoff.
The Brewers' lineup had other major changes on Saturday. Martin Maldonado will bat seventh and catch, in just his fourth game of 2015. Regular catcher Jonathan Lucroy replaces Adam Lind at first base.
"Trying to do something different, getting [Braun] sparked," Roenicke said to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He's had better at-bats, but just to get his mind off some things and maybe on something else. Then also, I think he is swinging the bat better. He's just not getting hits. Put him in a little different atmosphere. Hopefully he can get on base for us and have the other guys drive him in."
Hector Gomez gets the start at second base, batting sixth. He replaces Scooter Gennett.
Logan Schaefer is in center field, batting eighth. It will be his first start of the season.
Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy trying to turnaround slow start
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/15/15) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is working to find a rhythm at the plate early in the season, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The catcher isn't panicking, but it doesn't mean he hasn't dealt with his issues to begin the year.
"I'm not frustrated at all," said Lucroy. "I'm pissed off but I'm not frustrated. I know I'm better. But by getting mad, it drives me to get better, which I will."
Lucroy is hitting just .087 in 23 at-bats to begin the season.
"I can look at my video and I know what I'm doing wrong. I can fix myself by looking at it," he said. "It's a timing thing. I'm swinging at strikes; I'm just missing pitches.
"When I go back and watch the video, there are a lot of key points I look at like with my swing and stance, my hands. But mostly it's timing. When you're on time, everything else clicks. When you're late (starting your swing), it messes you up."
|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.
