With a .216 batting average and just two doubles, Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy has been a major letdown in Fantasy through the first month and a half. It hasn't helped that he is hitless on the 34 flyballs that he has put in play (excluding homers) so far this season.
Last year, Lucroy got 23 of his 33 extra-base hits either up the middle or to the opposite field, and that's where he has hit most...
Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is not in the team's starting lineup Tuesday against the Pirates.
Lucroy will receive a normal day of rest, and should return Wednesday. He'll be replaced by Martin Maldonado, who will bat eighth. Lucroy has struggled this season, and is hitting .216/.264/.333 in 111 at-bats.
“Lucroy was tearing the cover off the ball before getting injured, as well as hitting way over .300. Jonathan is a good source of power and average, but the threat of Martin Maldonado does weaken the value of Lucroy by a little bit. Still with Johnathan you are getting a great hitting catcher that should go later than he will produce.”
