JONATHAN LUCROY RUMORS

With his 48th double, Jonathan Lucroy has broken the doubles record for catchers

With a first-inning double in tonight’s game against the Cardinals, his 48th of the season, Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy broke the doubles record for catchers, per ESPN Stats & Info on Twitter. Ivan Rodriguez held the record previously, doubling 47 times in 1996 though two of those doubles were hit as a DH. 41 of Lucroy’s 48 doubles have been hit when he has been in...

The Entirety of the Jonathan Lucroy MVP Argument

Okay, I’ll grant that now isn’t the best time to talk about the National League MVP Award, with just weeks to go in a closely competitive regular season. I’ll grant that now isn’t the best time to talk about a Brewer winning the NL MVP Award, with the team in a bit of a slide […]

Jonathan Lucroy, Catcher Framing, and the NL MVP

Three years ago, the BBWAA opened their doors to FanGraphs; currently, four of our writers are members, including David Laurila, Eno Sarris, Carson Cistulli, and myself. Having that access has allowed David and Eno to do really interesting work in combining data with comments from the players, including Eno’s piece on Jacob deGrom from this […]

Jonathan Lucroy Becoming the New Face of the Milwaukee Brewers

Thanks to his breakout 2014 season, Jonathan Lucroy is quickly supplanting Ryan Braun as the face of the Milwaukee Brewers franchise. Before his overturned positive PED test in 2012 and suspension as a result of the Biogenesis scandal last year, it would’ve been unimaginable that anybody would pass Braun as the franchise’s most valuable player. After all, Braun – who signed...

Milwaukee Brewers: Thoughts after last night’s win

Don’t look now, but the Milwaukee Brewers may have finally gotten out of their hitting slump. The Brewers had much to celebrate last night. (Photo: Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images) After a pathetic little stretch where Milwaukee could barely scrape a run together, the Brewers torched David Price of the Rays and Adam Wainwright of the Cardinals in back-to-back games. Last night’s...

Lucroy returns to form, hammers walk-off winner

MILWAUKEE -- Jonathan Lucroy was so consistent in the first-half of the season that a stretch of eight games in which he struggled at the plate began to raise questions as to whether the workload placed on the catcher was becoming a cause for concern. So much for that. Responding in a big way, Lucroy blasted two home runs Tuesday night, including a walk-off blast in the bottom of...

Bitter Cardinals Fans Blame Jonathan Lucroy for Adam Wainwright’s All-Star Game Struggles

The Cardinals-Brewers feisty rivalry is quite underrated yet always prevalent, especially when both teams are competing for the division title and both teams send a heap of players to the All-Star Game. The rivalry tension was in full swing as Cardinals manager Mike Matheny tapped his own Adam Wainwright to start the game, pitching to the fan-voted starting catcher Jonathan Lucroy...

Milwaukee Brewers: The Brewers are MLB’s first team to 50 wins

If I told you before the season began that the Milwaukee Brewers would be on pace to win over 100 games and win 50 of them before the All-Star break, you’d direct me to the nearest psych ward. But that’s exactly what this Brewers team has done through the first 82 games. They’ve compiled a 50-32 record and have held steady in first place of the National League Central since...

Wife of Brewers catcher Lucroy getting hate mail

Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy was one of the pleasant surprises of this MLB season.  Through 43 games, he had hit five home runs, knocked in 30 runs and sitting at a clip of .345/.387/.583.  He was well on his way to setting career highs in each of those categories.  That was until he suffered an accident at home and broke his hand. The accident, as the story goes...

Jonathan Lucroy says his wife is getting hate mail over the suitcase accident

It never ceases to amaze me how ridiculous and thoughtless some sports fans can be. Earlier this week, Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy suffered by far one of the most bizarre injuries of the 2012 season when a suitcase fell on his hand and left him with a fracture that will take about six weeks to heal. Lucroy said he was reaching under the bed for a sock when his wife moved the...
