C - BOS - MiLB
Jonathan Lucroy cleared waivers and was outrighted to the Red Sox's alternate training site Friday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
Lucroy will continue to function as additional depth at the alternate site, but unless there's an injury to Christian Vazquez or Kevin Plawecki, it's unlikely that he'll see significant time with the Red Sox in 2020.
Jonathan Lucroy is going to be taken off the Red Sox roster, and will be replaced by Chris Mazza.
Lucroy made the 30-man roster, but was the third catcher and has not yet received an at-bat. Lucroy's fantasy value is long gone, so the fantasy impact is minimal.
Red Sox purchased the contract of catcher Jonathan Lucroy and added him to their 30-man roster.
Lucroy and Kevin Plawecki both made the team, so the Red Sox will carry three catchers for now. It does not look like either player will see enough time behind starter Christian Vazquez to be worth owning in fantasy.
Jonathan Lucroy has been taking grounders at first base during Red Sox summer camp.
Being able to play first base would simply add some versatility to Boston's pool of position players. Versatility could be of the utmost importance with players being away from teams due to COVID-19. However, the former All-Star catcher simply isn't a fantasy option these days.
Jonathan Lucroy was added to the Red Sox's 60-man roster Thursday according to the team's website.
Lucroy will go into camp competing with Kevin Plawecki for the backup catcher's role. The 34-year-old catcher spent last season with the Brewers where he hit .232 with eight home runs and 36 RBI over 101 games.
