Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (hamstring) made his spring debut Saturday, March 14, and said he had no problems with the hamstring injury that he had been dealing with.
Fantasy Tip: As long as he doesn't experience any setbacks, Lucroy should be ready to roll for the regular season. He established himself as one of the best all-around hitting catchers last year and should be one of the first few catchers drafted in all fantasy formats.

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (hamstring, eye) will not play in a minor league game now Friday, March 13, because he's recovering from pink eye. He's likely to return Saturday, March 14.
Fantasy Tip: Lucroy should have plenty of time to get his legs under him for the start of the regular season. After a breakout 2014, Lucroy is firmly a top-end fantasy starting catcher, and he'll likely come off the board as the second catcher after Buster Posey in the early rounds of drafts.

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (hamstring) will play in minor league games later this week, and he's hopeful of making his Cactus League debut next week.
Fantasy Tip: Lucroy's hamstring injury wasn't serious, and he should have plenty of time to be ready for the regular season, barring a setback. A fully healthy Lucroy is a top-tier fantasy catcher after a solid 2014 season. He will come off the board in the early rounds, especially because he plays a position that gets ugly very quickly.

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy's (hamstring) ailment doesn't change the team's long-term plans to have him play as many as 30 games at first base this year, according to assistant general manager Gord Ash. Lucroy's injury is near the top of his right hamstring, near the hip, which is the area that gave Lucroy some trouble at the end of last year. He'll see work at first base on the practice field, but he won't see game experience there in spring training.
