Phillies' Jonathan Lucroy: Lands in Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy signed a minor-league contract with the Phillies on Tuesday and was added to the 60-player pool, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

The veteran backstop was released by the Red Sox earlier in the day, and it was only a matter of hours before he linked up with a new team. Lucroy hasn't seen game action in 2020, but the Phillies are in need of catching depth with J.T. Realmuto battling a hip injury.

Jonathan Lucroy: Released by Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy was released by the Red Sox on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

Lucroy was working at the alternate training site in Pawtucket after being designated for assignment by the Red Sox at the beginning of August. However, he'll now hit free agency after his removal from the 60-man pool.

Red Sox's Jonathan Lucroy: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy cleared waivers and was outrighted to the Red Sox's alternate training site Friday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

The veteran catcher was designated for assignment earlier in the week but will remain in the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. Lucroy did not appear in a game during the first week of the season but will continue to provide catching depth in the 60-player pool.

Red Sox's Jonathan Lucroy: Cast off 40-man, active rosters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox intend to remove Lucroy from their 40-man and active 30-man rosters prior to Wednesday's game against the Mets, Chad Jennings and Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic report.

The transaction hasn't been announced, but Lucroy will likely be designated for assignment or given his outright release as the Red Sox look to clear room on the roster for pitcher Chris Mazza. Though Lucroy broke summer camp with the big club, he was the clear No. 3 catcher behind Christian Vazquez and Kevin Plawecki and appeared in just one of Boston's first five contests.

Red Sox's Jonathan Lucroy: Enters game late
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy entered Friday's blowout win over the Orioles late and caught the final two innings.

Christian Vazquez is the primary starter at catcher, but the battle of the backups -- Lucroy and Kevin Plawecki -- is not clear. Seeing Lucroy enter Friday's game could be a sign that manager Ron Roenicke favors Lucroy over Plawecki.

Red Sox's Jonathan Lucroy: Officially joins 60-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy was added to the Red Sox's 60-man roster Thursday.

Boston adjusted Lucroy's contract earlier in the week with the intention of adding him to the player pool, and Thursday's announcement makes it official that he'll serve as a non-roster invitee as camp resumes. He'll likely compete for the backup catching job with Kevin Plawecki.

Red Sox's Jonathan Lucroy: Not in player pool yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy's name was left of Boston's 60-man player pool, but he will be added to the list during the upcoming week, Chris Cotillo of reports.

The Red Sox are adjusting Lucroy's contract, so his exclusion from the player pool is a procedural issue. He will be in camp and added to the pool. Lucroy and Kevin Plawecki are battling for the backup job behind Christian Vazquez.

Red Sox's Jonathan Lucroy: Team may keep three catchers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox will have the flexibility to keep both Lucroy and Kevin Plawecki if MLB expands rosters from 26 to 29 players for the first month of an abbreviated season, Christopher Smith of reports.

The two catchers are locked in a roster-spot battle to back up starter Christian Vazquez, but each could be carried if the rosters are temporarily expanded as expected. The freedom to keep three catchers is something upon which interim manager Ron Roenicke went back-and-forth prior to the shutdown. With the expanded rosters, he'll have a free month of regular-season competition to evaluate which is the better fit. From a batting perspective, neither Lucroy (6-for-20, .300) nor Plawecki (9-for-19, .474) separated himself from the other during spring training.

Red Sox's Jonathan Lucroy: Gets timing down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy went 2-for-2 with a walk and an RBI in Wednesday's spring game against the Rays.

Lucroy is catching regularly after he was signed during the early days of spring training. He's hit safely in four of his last six at-bats after a 2-for-14 start in the Grapefruit League. "Yeah, I'm seeing the ball good and I've been able to see the ball deep and I've been able to put good swings on it and make good decisions," Lucroy told Ian Browne of "I'm definitely feeling a lot better." Lucroy and Kevin Plawecki (.474) are competing to back up starter Christian Vazquez.

Red Sox's Jonathan Lucroy: Serves as DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy made his spring debut Thursday, substituting for designated hitter J.D. Martinez and going 1-for-2 in a loss to Phillies.

Lucroy wasted no time making an impact, as he connected on a pinch-hit double off the replica Green Monster in the bottom of the seventh inning. He and Kevin Plawecki are competing to back up starter Christian Vazquez. Red Sox interim manager Ron Roenicke envisions Lucroy seeing his first game behind the plate this weekend, according to Ian Browne of Entering his age-34 season, Lucroy is no longer viewed as a primary catcher.

Red Sox's Jonathan Lucroy: Lands deal with Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy agreed Tuesday with the Red Sox on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to big-league spring training, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

As he heads to Boston, Lucroy will find a familiar face in interim skipper Ron Roenicke, who previously managed the backstop in Milwaukee from 2011 and 2015. Lucroy is well removed from his prime years with the Brewers, but his skills as a pitch framer and ability to take a walk could be enough for him to beat out Kevin Plawecki for backup duties behind No. 1 catcher Christian Vazquez. Heyman notes that Lucroy underwent a disc replacement procedure for his neck early in the offseason, but the 33-year-old will report to camp at 100 percent health.

Cubs' Jonathan Lucroy: Catching Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy is starting at catcher and batting eighth in Saturday's game against the Pirates.

Lucroy will be making his second straight start behind the plate after going 1-for-3 in Friday's contest. In five games since joining the Cubs, the veteran catcher is 5-for-15 with two RBI and a run. He'll continue to battle with Victor Caratini for playing time.

Cubs' Jonathan Lucroy: Signs with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy signed a contract with the Cubs on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

This isn't all too surprising, as the Cubs -- who are in need of catching depth after trading away Martin Maldonado and losing Willson Contreras to a hamstring injury -- expressed interest in Lucroy after he was released by the Angels earlier in the week. The veteran backstop owns a .242/.310/.371 slash line with seven home runs and 30 RBI in 74 games this season. He figures to split time behind the dish with Victor Caratini until Contreras returns sometime next month. Per Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic, Lucroy will join the Cubs in Cincinnati on Thursday.

Jonathan Lucroy: Cut loose by Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy was released by the Angels on Monday.

Lucroy went unclaimed after getting designated for assignment on Friday. The 33-year-old doesn't offer all that much at the plate any more, as his 84 wRC+ this season is his best mark since 2016. He could find work if a team loses its catcher to injury at some point down the stretch or simply views Lucroy as a marginal upgrade at catcher.

Angels' Jonathan Lucroy: DFA'd by Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy was designated for assignment by the Angels on Friday.

Lucroy was activated off the injured list Wednesday but lasted only one game before being jettisoned from the 40-man roster. It seems possible the Angels attempted to find trade partners at the deadline but were unable to reach a deal, so they opted to DFA the veteran backstop. The 33-year-old had a .242/.310/.371 slash line with seven home runs in 74 games. Lucroy is a prime candidate to be released since he can refuse an outright assignment to Triple-A and can no longer be traded.

Angels' Jonathan Lucroy: Back from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy (nose) was activated from the injured list Wednesday.

Lucroy suffered a concussion and a broken nose during a collision with Jake Marisnick at the plate back in early July. He was given a three-week timeline following a procedure on his nose July 14 but will wind up returning a few days ahead of that timeline. His return pushes Kevan Smith (toe) back to the bench, with Dustin Garneau getting designated for assignment.

Angels' Jonathan Lucroy: Rehab pushed to Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy (nose) won't begin his rehab assignment with High-A Inland Empire until Saturday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Lucroy was scheduled to embark on a rehab stint Friday night, but he'll have to wait until Saturday to see any minor-league action. He's expected to see the field Saturday and Monday with the 66ers before likely advancing to a higher level of competition.

Angels' Jonathan Lucroy: Rehab stint on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy (nose) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Inland Empire on Friday, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Lucroy has been on the 7-day injured list since suffering a concussion and broken nose July 8 against the Astros, but he'll take a step in the right direction Friday. The Angels have yet to disclose the length of his trip to the minors, but he figures to remain on the shelf at least until the beginning of August.

Angels' Jonathan Lucroy: Facing three-week absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy (concussion) will undergo a non-invasive procedure Tuesday to address a fractured nose, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic. Manager Brad Ausmus said he expects Lucroy to require approximately three weeks of recovery time following the procedure before returning from the 10-day injured list.

According to J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News, Lucroy will don a cast on his nose post-surgery for around 3-to-7 days before having it removed. Once that happens, Lucroy, who is also recovering from a concussion, will gradually ease back into baseball activities, with his ability to catch a nine-inning rehab or simulated game likely marking the final step of his recovery process. While Lucroy is on the shelf through at least early-to-mid-August, Dustin Garneau and Kevan Smith should share time behind the plate.

Angels' Jonathan Lucroy: Lands on concussion IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy (concussion/broken nose) was transferred to the 7-day injured list Friday.

This move was a formality, as Lucroy had already been diagnosed with a concussion. It is the third concussion he has sustained in his career, but he says it is not the worst concussion he has had. Dustin Garneau and Kevin Smith will split the catching duties while Lucroy is out.
