    Not to step on Dad's toes, but he is in AA Southern League with the Huntsville Stars.

    His BA is up to .273 after he had gotten in a funk for a while. Over the last 10 games its at .395.

    Training Re: Jonathan Lucroy hitting steak at 18 games

    He's batted 4th consistently all year with good production and is very well regarded by the Brewers as a prospect. I miscounted. He is at 17 games with a hit, raising his BA about 30 points in two weeks. Lucroy es en fuego.

    I read about it online the day after. I had to read it a few times to understand what happened. Catchers don't make double plays at 3rd base very often. Very cool!

    Found this article on ESPN today.

    Lucroy emerges as Brewers' top catching prospect

    Thursday, October 29, 2009 | Print Entry

    Posted by Jason Grey
    When the Milwaukee Brewers' brass had a year-end meeting with the media, assistant general manager Gord Ash said something interesting: Jonathan Lucroy, not Angel Salome, was the team's top catching prospect.

    A third-round pick in the 2007 draft out of Louisiana-Lafayette, Lucroy turned heads last year when he hit .301 with 20 homers between two Class A levels. Half of his year was spent at a strong hitting environment in low Class A, but he still hit well upon his promotion and drew praise for his ability to get on base and control the strike zone.

    Lucroy has a solid line-drive swing that he uses to take the ball to all fields. He covers the plate well, and his strong hands and wrists give him the potential for pull power.

    This year he played at AA Huntsville. Hopefully, he makes the jump to AAA to begin next season.

    Lucroy emerges as Brewers' top catching prospect

    Thursday, October 29, 2009 | Print Entry


    Posted by Jason Grey

    When the Milwaukee Brewers' brass had a year-end meeting with the media, assistant general manager Gord Ash said something interesting: Jonathan Lucroy, not Angel Salome, was the team's top catching prospect.

    A third-round pick in the 2007 draft out of Louisiana-Lafayette, Lucroy turned heads last year when he hit .301 with 20 homers between two Class A levels. Half of his year was spent at a strong hitting environment in low Class A, but he still hit well upon his promotion and drew praise for his ability to get on base and control the strike zone.

    Lucroy has a solid line-drive swing that he uses to take the ball to all fields. He covers the plate well, and his strong hands and wrists give him the potential for pull power.


    Promoted to Double-A this year, Lucroy didn't hit for the expected pop but still had a decent season, hitting .267 with 32 doubles and nine homers, and walking (78) more than he struck out (66). While he didn't hit for a lot of authority, he still improved his walk and strikeout rates while advancing a level, which is a good sign. To hear Lucroy tell it, though, it wasn't as good a year as some may believe.

    "At the beginning of the year, I didn't really feel comfortable," Lucroy said. "Something felt off all year when I was in the box. I hit OK, but not near the expectations I had for myself. I had a chance to come to the [Arizona] Fall League and work on it and improve for next year, so I'm just trying to get my swing back to where it used to be, going back to my middle-away approach."

    Lucroy has a tendency to jump at the ball sometimes instead of being quiet at the plate and letting the ball come to him. Though he has the bat control to make contact when something off-speed comes his way, it's not quality contact. It's something he recognizes he needs to work on.

    "I definitely need to stay back and let the ball travel," Lucroy agreed. "If I get out early it causes me to roll over some stuff instead of driving it to right-center like I used to."

    The 23-year-old had a reputation as an offense-first catcher when he was drafted, but he's starting to develop into a decent defender as well. He's posted very good caught-stealing percentages as his average arm strength plays up thanks to his quick release and agility behind the plate. While his receiving and blocking are still in development, he has been improving, and he's also reportedly better at calling a game. The defensive strides are part of the reason Ash said what he did.

    Salome, the other notable Brewers backstop prospect, didn't have quite the offensive season people expected, posting just a .748 OPS at Triple-A, so Lucroy needs to get a little more attention, as he could be starting by 2011. If Lucroy's power develops a little bit, which is the only uncertainty, he could be a player who hits .280 with high-teens power, which you'll certainly take at the catcher position.


  18. UL Baseball Ok, Please Explain This To Me


      This Saturday MLB Network is going to broadcast the AFL "Rising Stars Showcase". The game will be comprised of an East Team and a West Team, with the best players from the 2009 AFL. The Brewers sent eight players to the prestigious prospect league played every fall since 1992. Three position players: CF Lorenzo Cain, 3B Taylor Green and C Jonathan Lucroy. Also five pitchers: Zach Braddock, Josh Butler, Omar Aguilar, Mark Rogers and Rob Wooten.

    Six of the eight players the Brewers sent have struggled for the most part. Two have been very, very good. Catcher Jonathan Lucroy had a line of .385/.407/.615 with 2 HR and 5 RBI and LHP Zach Braddock who has a 1.04 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, 6 K's and 2 saves in 8.2 IP. You would think that those numbers would get both Lucroy and Braddock in the "Rising Stars Showcase" on Saturday. Well you would be wrong.

  19. UL Baseball Brewers Minor League Top 5: Catchers


      #1: Jonathan Lucroy, Double-A

    Prior to the season, Brewers fans debated whether Lucroy was the top catching prospect in the system.

    Now, there is no question that Jonathan Lucroy has risen to the zenith. Tom Haudricourt tweeted over the weekend that a major league scout covering the AFL said Lucroy is not far away from the majors.

    The UL-Lafayette product displayed fantastic plate discipline, walking 78 times compared to only 66 strikeouts. He allows the ball to travel deep into his stance before committing. This not only gives Jonathan more time to assess whether the pitch will be a strike, but it also allows him to take the ball to the opposite field, which he does quite well. He displayed that ability last Spring Training.

    His power production was not where I expected it to be, but multiple reports surfaced throughout the season that Jonathan chose to focus more on his defense and game-calling abilities to begin the year. Once the second-half arrived, however, his power returned and the 23-year old turned in a fine season. A .798 OPS on a "down" offensive season is nothing to cry home about. Neither are the 32 walks and .150 ISO.

    Although a bit under the radar outside the Brewers organization, Jonathan Lucroy certainly has a chance to break camp on the 25-man roster if he can continue to impress in Arizona this month.
