      Jonathan Lucroy: Elects free agency

      Jonathan Lucroy cleared waivers Thursday and has elected free agency, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.Lucroy was designated for assignment by the Nationals on Monday, but he was unable to find another spot on a 40-man roster. Rather than serving as organizational depth for the Nationals, the 34-year-old will be free to sign with another team at some point in 2021. Lucroy appeared in five games for Washington this year and went 5-for-14 with a double and two RBI.

      Nationals' Jonathan Lucroy: Booted from 40-man roster

      The Washington Nationals designated Jonathan Lucroy for assignment Monday.Lucroy stuck around with the Nationals for a few days as a third catcher after Yan Gomes and Alex Avila were both activated from the COVID-19 injured list Friday, but he became expendable when Washington reinstated three more players from the list Monday. Unless another team opts to put in a claim for Lucroy, he'll likely head to the Nationals' alternate site upon clearing waivers.

      Nationals' Jonathan Lucroy: Catching in season opener

      Jonathan Lucroy will catch for the Washington Nationals and bat eighth in Tuesday's season opener versus Atlanta, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.Lucroy and Tres Barrera were both promoted to the 26-man roster Tuesday after the top two catchers on the depth chart -- Yan Gomes and Alex Avila -- were placed on the COVID-19 injured list. With Gomes and Avila both expected to remain in quarantine for at least a week while they wait to clear the COVID-19 health and safety protocols, Lucroy looks poised to serve as the Nationals' top catcher to begin the season. The two-time All-Star has drawn positive reviews in the past for his skills as a pitch framer, but he hasn't finished with an OPS over .700 in any season since 2017.

      Nationals' Jonathan Lucroy: Could start Tuesday

      Jonathan Lucroy will likely be behind the plate Tuesday if he gets cleared through the league's COVID-19 protocols in time, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.Neither Yan Gomes nor Alex Avila took part in the team's on-field workout Monday, suggesting that both catchers are among the 11 Washington Nationals currently being quarantined. Lucroy, who was signed Saturday, would give the club a more experienced option behind the plate than Tres Barrera or Raudy Read, but his stint on the roster could be a brief one if Gomes and Avila were merely close contacts of the four players who tested positive.
