Latest Update Jonathan Lucroy went 2-for-4 with two doubles, RBI, and two runs scored in the Brewers win on Tuesday night. Wed Aug, 20, 12:12 AM
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's dominance at the plate continues and when you look at the overall rankings next season, don't be too surprised if he's in the conversation to be ranked first overall. After this performance, he's got a .304/.370/.493 slash line with 13 home runs, 59 RBI and 61 runs scored. He's been incredibly consistent all year which is a huge allure and the 42 doubles are efinite sign of some latent power still to develop. Next year could be even better.Analyst: Howard Bender
Despite a poor showing over his last seven games (.207 BA), Lucroy is still slashing .303/.369/.489 with 13 home runs and 58 RBI through 446 at-bats in 2014. He remains a top option at the catcher position the rest of the way.Analyst: Matthew Beck
It's been a fantastic season for Lucroy and with the Brewers in the thick of a playoff race, it's important that he stays healthy and fresh over the next six weeks. It is unknown if he'll play this weekend, but you can safely consider him day-to-day. Martin Maldonado will be behind the plate on Friday night.Analyst: David Kerr
