Jonathan Lucroy drives in a run on two hits in A's win

Jonathan Lucroy finished 2-for-4 with an RBI, a run scored and a walk as the A's completed a four game sweep of the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact

Lucroy actually drove his sole run in on an infield single when he plated Matt Chapman in the top of the sixth to make it 6-0. As has been the case all year, Lucroy is having no problem making contact with the ball as evidenced by the serviceable albeit light .281/.348/.367 line. However, as the line indicates, he lacks power and has only driven in 11 runs and is yet to homer.

Jonathan Lucroy picks up pair of hits against Yankees in loss

Jonathan Lucroy finished 2-for-4 with a run scored in Oakland's 6-2 loss to New York.

Fantasy Impact

The A's lineup was fairly stunted in this one but Lucroy was one of the few to string a few hits together. With the pair of singles, Lucroy continues to hover around .300 which is fantastic for a fantasy catcher; only downside of course being that he has provided owners with just about nothing else with no home runs and eight RBI on the year.

Jonathan Lucroy extends modest hit streak to five games

Jonathan Lucroy finished 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and an RBI in Oakland's 16-2 loss to Houston.

Fantasy Impact

Lucroy tacked on Oakland's second run of the game with his ninth inning RBI double in Monday night's laugher and while that isn't exactly headline news, it's worth noting that Lucroy has strung together five games with a hit, and six in his last seven including three multi-hit efforts to see his line rise to .298/.365/.404. He's still as power-shocked as he was last year, having yet to homer this year and having driven in a paltry eight RBI but perhaps this is a sign that production is ahead as the A's lineup can certainly put up runs (though you wouldn't be able to tell from last three box scores). His counting stats aren't sexy but you can do a whole lot worse than this at catcher.

Jonathan Lucroy drives in a pair in loss

Jonathan Lucroy finished 3-for-4 with a pair of RBI on two singles and a double in Oakland's 8-4 loss to the Astros.

Fantasy Impact

Lucroy doubled in a run in the third inning to give the A's an early and brief lead before tying it up in the seventh at three apiece. Unfortunately, the wheels came off Oakland's bullpen in the final frames resulting in the loss. Lucroy is still exhibiting the same strange power outage that plagued him last year and torpedoed his value going into this season but at least is slashing a respectable .267/.337/.333 with seven RBI as a fantasy catcher.

Jonathan Lucroy with biggest game of young season

Jonathan Lucroy finished 3-for-4 with a run scored and three RBI in the A's 10-2 rout of the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact

Lucroy finally made a sizable impact with his bat in 2018, driving in three runs in the blowout win. He's been heating up a bit of late, bringing his triple slash to .280/.357/.340 with four RBI on the year now but the power is still missing, a concern coming into the year. That said, seeing Lucroy getting the bat working is an excellent thing for fantasy owners all the same.
