Latest Update Jonathan Lucroy is not in the Brewers starting lineup on Friday. Fri Jul, 25, 03:17 PM
Has growing home-run power and plenty of plate discipline. Doesn't strike out a lot. Also displays the leadership required to call a good game from behind the dish. Can even steal a base.
Flaws: : Could use more bulk (only 6-0,195 pounds) to withstand the rigors of a full season in the big leagues. Is still learning some of the important intricacies of the catching position.
Lucroy has been behind the plate for the last seven-straight days and is due for a breather. Martin Maldonado will handle the work behind the plate Friday.Analyst: Howard Bender
Lucroy's magical season continued on Thursday as he is now slashing .314/.383/.508 with 12 home runs and 49 RBI through 366 at-bats. He has now reached 12 home runs for the fourth season in a row, but remains on track to break his current career-high of 18 long balls set last season if he can keep up his current pace of 30.5 AB/HR. Even if he was to have a power drought he has given us no reason to think he can't maintain a batting average of .300 or better, considering he has hit .283 or better in each month of the season.

It doesn't matter what kind of game it is, this guy just keeps on mashing. Lucroy has been the best catcher in the league this season and he was able to showcase his talents on a huge stage tonight. Expect more excellent production in the second half.Analyst: David Kerr
