Brewers' Jonathan Lucroy sidelined due to illness
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(2/22/15) Brewers cather Jonathan Lucroy will sidelined for the next few days as he recovers from the flu, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Lucroy recently recovered from a hamstring injury. In 2014, he hit .301 with 13 home runs and 69 RBI.
Brewers' Jonathan Lucroy no longer experiencing pain
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/20/15) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is progressing well in his recovery from a hamstring injury, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
"The pain already has gone away," Lucroy said. "Before, just standing around I would feel it. Now, it's already feeling a lot better." Lucroy had a platelet-enriched plasma infusion nearly two weeks ago, and credits that treatment for the turn-around.
Despite the progress, Lucroy admitted he's going to take is slow during camp. "We're just going to take it slow," he said. "There's no rush. You don't want to go out and test it right away. These things can be nagging."
Lucroy will be able to take part in hitting and fielding drills, but will not be able to run at first. "I can do everything except for sprinting," Lucroy said. He'll eventually progress to the point where he's allowed to catch bullpen sessions. Once he's cleared to run, he'll start playing in games.
The 28-year-old Lucroy hit .301/.373/.465 over 585 at-bats last year.
Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy (hamstring) to miss 4-6 weeks
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/11/15) The Brewers announced Wednesday that All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy is expected to miss 4-6 weeks due to a mild strain of his right hamstring.
Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash said Lucroy's agent called with the news of the injury, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The injury is at the top of the leg, where it attaches to the hip. Ash added Lucroy mentioned some soreness in that area at end of 2014 season, but the team had no concerns about the injury at the time. Lucroy told MLB.com the injury flared up when he ramped up his running two weeks ago. Lucroy received a PRP injection Tuesday to help with the healing.
Lucroy was examined Monday by Brewers head physician William Raasch, who initially diagnosed the injury. It was then confirmed Tuesday during a second opinion with Marlins medical director Dr. Lee Kaplan, per MLB.com.
Ash said Lucroy can do some hitting, fielding and throwing while he recovers from the injury. He just can't run or perform any activities that might put serious strain on his hamstring.
Ash said the Brewers are "very hopeful" Lucroy will be ready by opening day. Martin Maldonado is Lucroy's backup and catcher Juan Centeno is also on the 40-man roster. Brewers pitchers and catchers are expected to report for spring training Feb. 20.
This is an unfortunate setback for Lucroy, who is coming off his first All-Star season. He also finished fourth in the NL MVP voting and totaled a league-leading 53 doubles in 2014.
Lucroy has been a very good offensive catcher since 2013. Over the last two seasons, he is batting .291 with a .357 on-base percentage, .460 slugging percentage and .817 OPS.
Jonathan Lucroy goes hitless in fifth straight game Friday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/27/14) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy went 0 for 5 in Friday's 6-4 loss to the Cubs.
Lucroy has delivered a fine offensive season, but he's hit a speed bump over the past week, going 0 for 17 in his last five games (though also walking five times during that stretch). However, before his recent cold spell, the catcher hit .357/.444/.443 in 70 September at-bats. Lucroy has hit .296/.369/.461 with 13 home runs, 68 RBI and a league-leading 52 doubles in 577 at-bats.
Jonathan Lucroy back into action for Milwaukee
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/9/14) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is set to start Friday night against the Dodgers after missing the Friday night game with a hamstring problem.
Lucroy returns on a four-game hitting streak.
|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.
