JONATHAN LUCROY RUMORS

Could Jonathan Lucroy be the next Brewer traded?

The Milwaukee Brewers are in full rebuild mode, which was evident well before the club dealt former All-Star shortstop Jean Segura in a trade with the Arizona Diamondbacks which landed them a package of infielder Aaron Hill, pitcher Chase Anderson, and prospect Isan Diaz. Milwaukee took on half of Hill’s salary to get Diaz, an intriguing 19-year-old infielder who put up excellent...

Whereas my colleague, Michael Bradburn, examined Jonathan Lucroy’s Called Strikes Above Average (CSAA) and Errant Pitches Above Average (EPAA), I will look at Lucroy’s Takeoff Rate Above Average (TRAA) and Swipe Rate Above Average (SRAA...

Setting odds for Jonathan Lucroy's new employer

Jonathan Lucroy has kept the hot stove roaring into late January. First, Baseball Prospectus launched their new defensive catching metrics, and we were all reminded –despite his down 2015 — Lucroy has a long and deeply established track record as one of the best pitch framers of the modern era. Then, Lucroy had the audacity to speak to a notion that every breathing Brewer...

Why we're wrong to criticize Jonathan Lucroy for wanting trade

After a relatively toothless December in Wisconsin, the winter weather has finally blanketed the Midwest in January, bringing below-zero temperatures and a handful of flurries. The winter meetings ended over a month ago. The Green Bay Packers departed the NFL Playoffs in a simultaneously exhilarating and soul-crushing manner. The Milwaukee Brewers haven’t made a transaction since...

What is Going to Happen With Jonathan Lucroy?

The Milwaukee Brewers are in full rebuilding mode and they have a catcher who wants to play for a contender not a rebuilding franchise. So what do the Brewers do with Jonathan Lucroy? Lucroy made it clear on Tuesday that he really didn’t want to stick around with franchise that is in the state that the Brewers are in right now and made it clear that he wants to be traded to a team...

Jonathan Lucroy and the New Decline

Here’s a graph posted at Baseball Prospectus a week ago: You see, for each of the last six years, an estimate of Jonathan Lucroy‘s pitch-framing value. Now, there are freely available pitch-framing numbers you can browse through at StatCorner.

Let’s Get Jonathan Lucroy to the Rangers

I’ve long been greatly interested in Jonathan Lucroy, so now I find myself greatly interested in his situation with the Brewers. The Brewers, as you know, are bad, and they’re prepared for being bad, and though Lucroy is decidedly not bad, he’s got just two more seasons of control, and he’s coming up on 30 years old. It makes sense for Lucroy to be on the market, therefore...

Introducing Catchella using Jonathan Lucroy Part I: Behind the Dish

As you hopefully know by now, Catchella launched today at Baseball Prospectus. If you are unfamiliar, folks who are much smarter than I am have labored hard to finally quantify en masse the defensive contributions of a catcher. The importance of this in baseball circles is hard to overstate. Other metrics — like Ultimate Zone Rating — have long over-looked the men behind the...
