Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy heating up

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 20:20:51 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-6 with a double and two runs scored in an 8-7 win over the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday, July 2, and he is 8-for-15 over his last three games.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has scored five times over the same stretch, and after missing time early in the year, his bat is starting to heat up. His career numbers suggest he should only continue to improve on his .245 batting average, and he could make a nice mid-range option at FantasyScore.

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 12:06:29 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 1. C Martin Maldonado is starting and hitting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang.

Fantasy Tip: Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is a weak FantasyScore catching option today, even against the struggling Harang. Maldonado has 24 hits in 130 at-bats (.185) with three home runs and 12 RBI this season.

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 12:15:07 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is back in the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Sunday, June 21, batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: After getting off to a slow start offensively, Lucroy ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is batting .292 over the last four weeks and .350 over the last seven days. However, he hasn't developed his power stroke yet, as he only has one home run in 117 at-bats and just three doubles after hitting 53 in 2014.

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 10:14:59 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is not in the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Saturday, June 20. C Martin Maldonado will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy will not start

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 08:05:22 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer Sunday, June 14. C Martin Maldonado will take his place and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) probably is receiving a day off after playing in each of the last 12 games. Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has received only start this month and hitting .177 this season, so owners on FantasyScore may want to look for a better option.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy leading off

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 16:04:23 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy will bat from the leadoff position Thursday, June 11, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) should receive a slight boost in FantasyScore value, although he faces a fairly difficult test against RHP Tanner Roark. Lucroy has gone 0-for-8 in his past two games, adding to the risk. Lucroy should be reserved for GPP lineups.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy to be DH

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 09:29:14 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy will serve as the designated hitter Sunday, June 7. C Martin Maldonado will be the starting catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has picked up eight hits and two RBI in five games since returning from injury. He is one of the more expensive catchers available but could be a solid option on FantasyScore. Maldonado ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) had four hits in his last start but is hitting .182 this season and may not be a great option.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy hits first round tripper

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 05:41:33 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy hit his first home run of the season during the Brewers' 10-5 win over the Minnesota Twins Friday, June 5.

Fantasy Tip: Lucroy ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) missed over a month of action with a toe injury, but he has caught fire over the past three games with at least two hits in each. Though it is a small sample size, it is a snapshot of Lucroy's upside, as he has gone 7-for-14 with two runs, a home run, two RBI and a 1.286 OPS. FantasyScore players can confidently start him in the majority of matchups, the only kicker is they'll have to spend up to do so.
