Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy out 4-6 weeks?

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 16:07:27 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (toe) will have an initial timetable of four-to-six weeks to recover from his broken toe, according to manager Ron Roenicke, Tuesday, April 21. C Martin Maldonado is next up on the depth chart and will see plenty of playing time.

Fantasy Tip: Maldonado ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a career .222 hitter, but has 16 home runs in just 537 career plate appearances. Maldonado will be an option for Lucroy owners looking for some extra power and have the availability to take a hit to their batting average. Lucroy needs to be stashed whether or not owners have an available spot on their disabled list.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy headed for DL

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 19:24:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (toe) has a fractured toe on his left foot and he will be placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, April 21. The team is expected to recall C Juan Centeno from Triple-A Colorado Springs to serve as the backup to C Martin Maldonado.

Fantasy Tip: Itís uncertain how much time Lucroy will miss. However, Maldonado ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) is likely to be the regular receiver until Lucroy is able to return. At such a small price he is a great addition in the coming days.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy off to slow start

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 16:51:36 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy enters the game Wednesday, April 15, hitting just .087 (2-for-23) with no home runs or RBI after hitting .435 with five home runs, 11 RBI, a .480 on-base percentage and .826 slugging percentage in 15 spring training games. Lucroy is frustrated but isn't too worried, and said he figured out what he can change by watching video. Manager Ron Roenicke is not worried about Lucroy and hasn't seen any signs of panic.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) remains one of the best hitting catchers in the game today, so he should be fine in the long run. Despite his early-season slump, he remains one of the safest catching options at FantasyScore.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy not playing

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 09:25:28 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is not in the starting lineup against the Pittsburgh Pirates Sunday, April 12.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has started the season 1-for-20 at the plate, so he is receiving a day off Sunday. Lucroy is still one of the better options at catcher on FantasyScore and should be an starting option when he plays.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy makes spring debut

Sat, 14 Mar 2015 19:55:28 -0700

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.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy pushed back

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 12:01:08 -0700

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.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy to play in games

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 10:44:40 -0700

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.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy to see plenty of spring ABs

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 13:55:11 -0800

Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (hamstring) is making great progress in his recovery from a right hamstring strain, and he'll receive plenty of at-bats in spring training before opening day. He underwent physical therapy and a platelet-rich plasma injection before spring training started. Lucroy hasn't had any pain, and the final step in his recovery will be running full speed. He isn't worried about not being ready for opening day.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Lucroy will have plenty of time and will see plenty of at-bats this spring to be ready for opening day in April. He'll remain the second catcher off the board after Buster Posey in the early rounds of fantasy baseball drafts, unless he suffers a setback.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy ahead of schedule

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 10:13:15 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy (hamstring) is progressing nicely from his hamstring injury, and he might get into spring games earlier than expected.

Fantasy Tip: This is great news for Lucroy owners or those planning to pursue him. His late-season homer outage shouldn't scare you away. He's still one of the top fantasy catchers right behind Buster Posey.
