Jonathan Lucroy wins game for Brewers


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Jonathan Lucroy starts first game at first base


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2013) 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
(7/20/2013) 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.

Jonathan Lucroy is a high-end catcher


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/16/2013) Jonathan Lucroy's 2013 feels like a disappointment given the way it started out, but with 13 home runs, the Brewers catcher has set a career high.

But what about the .320 batting average he put together last year? It hasn't strayed too far either. Again, a dreadful first six weeks skews the overall numbers, but since May 21, Lucroy is batting .329 with 10 homers and a .950 OPS.

You know how many catchers have outscored him in Head-to-Head leagues during that stretch? Just one, reigning NL MVP Buster Posey.

Looking at the peripherals, I'd say the Lucroy we saw in the first six weeks was more of a fluke than the one we're seeing now. He was clearly a BABIP victim early on considering his .274 mark is about 55 points lower than last year's. And he doesn't need an especially high BABIP to succeed. His strikeout rate is one of the 30 lowest among full-timers.


Jonathan Lucroy still swinging hot bat


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2013) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy homered for the fourth time in five games Thursday, in a 5-3 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Lucroy hit a two-run home run in the first inning, but was hitless from that point on. He finished the game 1 for 4, extending his hitting streak to five games. He has four home runs and seven RBI in that span.

Lucroy is hitting .268 on the season, with 12 home runs and 50 RBI in 276 at-bats. 


Jonathan Lucroy homers twice in Mets series


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2013) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy made it two straight games with a home run Sunday against the Mets. Lucroy accounted for his team's only run in a 2-1 loss with a solo homer off Jeremy Hefner in the seventh inning.

Jonathan Lucroy out of lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2013) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates. The team doesn't have a day off before the All-Star break, so Lucroy is getting a break for the second time in the past four days.

Jonathan Lucroy hits seventh home run


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Jonathan Lucroy out of Friday's lineup


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com

Martin Maldonado has caught Friday's projected starter Kyle Lohse in his last two starts. There haven't been any official reports of Maldonado becoming Lohse's personal catcher, but if three is a trend, that may be what is occurring in Milwaukee. Expect Lucroy to catch the other two games of the weekend series.

Backpedaling on Jonathan Lucroy


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2013) OK, I'll admit I had lost faith in the Brewers' Jonathan Lucroy heading into the last weekend of May. He was something of a surprise last year, after all, so when he couldn't back it up after two months, I was ready to dismiss it as a fluke.

Then, he went 8 for 13 with three homers, a double and a triple during a three-game series with the Phillies. Touche.

Looking at some of his batted-ball numbers, I probably shouldn't have gotten down on him in the first place. The guy never strikes out or pops out and is hitting line drives at about the same rate he did last year. Sooner or later, some of those balls he's putting in play have to fall.

Enough that he'll hit .320 like last year? Probably not. But the catcher position is weak enough that he's a top-12 option even if he hits .285. I've moved him back up to 11th in Head-to-Head leagues, in between Yasmani Grandal and Jason Castro.


Jonathan Lucroy has big series in Philly


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2013) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy continued his recent surge at the plate with a three-RBI performance Sunday against the Phillies. Lucroy hit .615 (8 for 13) with one double, one triple, three home runs and eight RBI during a three-game series at Philadelphia.

Lucroy owns a .500 average (13 for 26) in seven career games at Citizens Bank Ballpark. He also has one double, one triple, four home runs and 10 RBI.

Lucory pushed his hitting streak to eight games Sunday and has hit safely in 10 of 11 games. He's batting .415 (17 for 41) with one triple, two doubles, three home runs and 11 RBI in his last 11 games.


Jonathan Lucroy pushes hit streak to seven


by Jeff Tobin | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2013) Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy smacked his sixth home run of the season Saturday, providing some late insurance in a 4-3 win over Philadelphia.

He was 2 for 4 Saturday, extending his hitting streak to seven games, during which he's hitting .422 with three home runs and six RBI.

Lucroy has raised his season batting average from .221 to .259 during the streak. He now has 25 RBI on the season.


Jonathan Lucroy homers twice, records five hits


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2013) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy had the best game of his career as he homered twice and had a career-high five hits in Friday's 8-5 victory over the Phillies.

Lucroy doubled in a run in the second inning, had an RBI single in the third and added solo homers in the fifth and ninth. He fell a triple shy of the cycle and finished 5 for 5 with three runs scored and four RBI.

Lucroy entered Friday with a .229 batting average but is hitting .253 after the big night. He is hitting .454 (10 for 22) with two homers and five RBI in his last six games.

Jonathan Lucroy gets three much-needed hits


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2013) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy went 3 for 4 in Tuesday's win over the Dodgers.

Lucroy finished with a run and an RBI. All three hits were singles. Lucroy had been in a terrible slump since his OPS peaked at .768 on April 20. From then until Tuesday night, he was hitting an atrocious .169/.241/.225 without a home run.


Stay patient with Jonathan Lucroy


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(5/15/2013) With a .216 batting average and just two doubles, Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy has been a major letdown in Fantasy through the first month and a half. It hasn't helped that he is hitless on the 34 flyballs that he has put in play (excluding homers) so far this season.

Last year, Lucroy got 23 of his 33 extra-base hits either up the middle or to the opposite field, and that's where he has hit most of his deepest flies this season, as shown on the spray charts on TexasLeaguers.com. It's only a matter of time before he finds the gaps and hits a few more balls over the wall. And don't worry about Lucroy making contact; he is striking out at a lower rate this season than last.

Lucroy is currently starting in only 59 percent of the leagues on CBSSports.com, but given that he could bust out at any time, more owners should be getting him into their lineups.


Jonathan Lucroy gets a breather


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2013) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is not in the team's starting lineup Tuesday against the Pirates.

Lucroy will receive a normal day of rest, and should return Wednesday. He'll be replaced by Martin Maldonado, who will bat eighth. Lucroy has struggled this season, and is hitting .216/.264/.333 in 111 at-bats.
