Rangers' Jonathan Lucroy: Taking rest Thursday

Lucroy is not in the Rangers' Thursday lineup against the Phillies.

The backstop gets a breather for the matinee, with the often useful Robinson Chirinos hitting cleanup in his stead. Lucroy has started to turn around his season with a five-game hit streak, during which he's gone 11-for-22 to raise his season-long average 60 points to .274. His owners must wait until Friday to deploy him again, though.
