Brewers' Lucas Erceg: Attempting two-way conversion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erceg has been working on pitching at the Brewers' alternate training site as he attempts to become a two-way player, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

Erceg is exactly the type of player that a team might want to convert to a two-way role. He's not a non-prospect on the offensive side, but his bat doesn't seem quite good enough for him to carve out a meaningful role. He also has experience as a pitcher, having served as a closer in college. His path to the big leagues could involve him pitching well enough to be the last man in the bullpen while hitting well enough to be the last man on the bench, giving the team more flexibility with its other 25 roster spots.

Brewers' Lucas Erceg: Reassigned by Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erceg was reassigned to minor league camp Monday.

Erceg took 22 at-bats with the big club this spring but recorded a hit in just four of them. He was considered one of the Brewers' better prospects a few years ago, but down seasons at both the Double-A and Triple-A levels leave him a fringe prospect for now. Erceg will presumably open 2020 at the Triple-A level, so he could at least give himself a shot to play at the top level if he can make some strides in the average and on-base departments.

Brewers' Lucas Erceg: Fast start at Triple-A level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erceg has gone 9-for-23 (.391) with three home runs, eight RBI, and an 8:7 BB:K over his last eight games with Triple-A San Antonio.

Erceg started the minor-league season just 1-for-11, but he has been on fire since, both getting on base and hitting for power at a stellar clip. This is Erceg's first full campaign at the Triple-A level, and it could not have started much better for him. It's a bit of a long shot he will make his big-league debut this year given he is not on the Brewers' 40-man roster, plus his fellow San Antonio infielders are much more experienced, but a big season would still go a long way toward increasing his long-term value.

Brewers' Lucas Erceg: Will open in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erceg has been informed he won't break camp with the Brewers, Adam McCalvy of reports.

The news is hardly a surprise, as Erceg has yet to play above Double-A and struggled there last season, hitting .248/.306/.382 in 123 games for Biloxi. It's unknown whether he'll have to repeat Double-A or will open the season with Triple-A San Antonio.

Brewers' Lucas Erceg: Invited to major-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erceg was invited to the Brewers' major-league spring training camp Wednesday.

Erceg earned the invitation despite a subpar showing for Double-A Biloxi last season, in which he posted a .248/.306/.382 line with 13 homers in 123 games. Those numbers simply aren't good enough for a third baseman, so Erceg's odds of earning his major-league debut this year appear low unless his output improves significantly.

Brewers' Lucas Erceg: Picking it up at Double-A level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erceg has hit .305/.349/.513 with eight home runs and 24 RBI over 41 games since the Double-A All-Star break.

Erceg owned just a .629 OPS on the season when the first half came to a close, but his recent hot streak has boosted that number nearly 100 points to .717. His early struggles took some shine off his prospect status, but he still remains one of the top young hitters in the Brewers' system.

Brewers' Lucas Erceg: Back in action for Biloxi
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erceg (head) returned to action Thursday for Double-A Biloxi, going 0-for-3 with a run, a walk and a strikeout in Birmingham.

He was sidelined for a couple days after a pitch struck his helmet in Monday's game, but fortunately avoided a DL stint, and presumably avoided a concussion. Erceg has cooled off a bit, hitting .222 with one home run and eight strikeouts over his last 36 at-bats, but still boasts an impressive .306/.378/.417 slash line on the young season.

Brewers' Lucas Erceg: Will rest after HBP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erceg (head) will receive a couple days off after a pitch struck his helmet Monday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Fortunately, it looks like Erceg avoided a serious injury, although he'll receive some time off as a precautionary measure. Once he returns, Erceg will look to continue his strong start to the season at Double-A Biloxi. Over 18 games he's hit .319 with an .820 OPS.

Brewers' Lucas Erceg: Day-to-day after HBP to head
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erceg is day-to-day after being struck by a pitch on the helmet in a game with Double-A Biloxi on Monday, according to

According to the report Erceg "seemed alert and spoke with Shuckers athletic trainer Kevin Creighton before getting to his feet," which provides optimism regarding his status moving forward. Erceg is hitting .319/.385/.435 through 18 games with Biloxi this season.

Brewers' Lucas Erceg: Faring well in Double-A debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erceg is 10-for-26 (.385) with four doubles, four RBI, and a 2:4 BB:K through six games with Double-A Biloxi.

Erceg is playing at the Double-A level for the first time, but he has not encountered any trouble yet, building upon the .864 OPS he posted over 26 games last August. Erceg's stock got a slight boost late last year, but it could see a far more significant bump if he continues handling Double-A pitching with ease.

Brewers' Lucas Erceg: Joining Triple-A squad for playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erceg will join Triple-A Colorado Springs for the Pacific Coast League playoffs, Adam McCalvy of reports.

The 22-year-old will try his hand against Triple-A pitching after closing out his time with High-A Carolina with a .296/.384/.480 line in August. Despite this aggressive assignment, it seems likely that Erceg will begin next season at Double-A Biloxi.

Brewers' Lucas Erceg: Making strides at High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erceg, 22, is hitting .400 with two home runs and 12 RBI over his last 10 games for High-A Carolina.

Perhaps most impressively, Erceg has tallied more walks (10) than strikeouts (7) over that span. His slash line now sits at .258/.309/.421 on the season, and Erceg has 15 home runs and 81 RBI in 126 contests. He was recently named to the All-Star team for the Carolina League. Erceg should begin the 2018 campaign at Double-A.

Brewers' Lucas Erceg: Heating up at High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erceg, 22, is hitting .239/.283/.368 with six home runs and a 48:14 K:BB in 265 plate appearances at High-A Carolina.

It has been a slow start to the season for Erceg, but he is heating up, hitting .316/.359/.456 with six extra-base hits in 57 June at-bats. His poor luck on balls in play (.272 BABIP) is partially responsible for the mediocre batting line, and his 18.1 percent strikeout rate is excellent for someone with his power potential.

Brewers' Lucas Erceg: Homers in High-A game Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erceg went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a game with High-A Carolina on Sunday.

Erceg is getting his first taste of High-A action this season, and he's faring well early on, hitting .302/.327/.434 through 13 games. As the Brewers' top third-base prospect, he'll see regular playing time all season.
