JONATHAN LUCROY RUMORS

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...

Brewers' Lucroy continues to make case for All-Star nod

After submitting another performance pivotal to yet another Brewers win, catcher Jonathan Lucroy sat in front of his locker inside Milwaukee's clubhouse contentedly eating an ice cream cone, positively pleased with the team's victory and entirely unconcerned with whether his continuingly peerless play would be recognized with an All-Star nod. In the Brewers' 7-4 win over...

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...

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...
