The Basics: Jonathan Lucroy has posted a .242 batting average in 281 at bats so far this year. Lucroy has also posted a .635 OPS with four homers and 27 RBI’s. He will be a rental for the Rockies as he will become a free agent at the end of the year.
How Lucroy Can Help: Jonathan can be a huge help behind the dish for the Rockies. The Rockies don’t have any great catchers, so this acquisition will help them behind the plate. The Rockies are 60-45 this year and they currently have a wildcard place locked up, and this acquisition might really help them down the stretch.
The Return: Jon Heyman states that the Rangers will be getting a player to be announced later for Lucroy.
