One of the challenges when it comes to ranking players by position in fantasy baseball is trying to determine which player is going to have that breakout season and return a profit to your auction buy or draft pick. When reviewing the list of catchers for the 2013 season, my pick to break out is catcher Jonathan Lucroy of the Milwaukee Brewers.
Lucroy was on pace for that type of...
MILWAUKEE -- After nearly two months on the shelf, Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is returning to the Milwaukee Brewers' lineup Thursday.
Lucroy was one of Milwaukee's best hitters before a bizarre injury involving a falling suitcase resulted in a broken hand at the end of May, but Lucroy's return comes a bit too late to keep the Brewers in serious contention...
MILWAUKEE After breaking his hand in a freak suitcase accident back on May 27, it appears Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is inching closer to a return to the team's lineup.

Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy was one of the pleasant surprises of this MLB season. Through 43 games, he had hit five home runs, knocked in 30 runs and sitting at a clip of .345/.387/.583. He was well on his way to setting career highs in each of those categories. That was until he suffered an accident at home and broke his hand.
The accident, as the story goes...
It never ceases to amaze me how ridiculous and thoughtless some sports fans can be. Earlier this week, Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy suffered by far one of the most bizarre injuries of the 2012 season when a suitcase fell on his hand and left him with a fracture that will take about six weeks to heal. Lucroy said he was reaching under the bed for a sock when his wife moved the...
Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is expected to be out 4-6 weeks after a suitcase fell and landed on his hand as he was attempting to retrieve a lost sock from under a bed.
MILWAUKEE It was May 21, 2010 a little over two years ago now that Jonathan Lucroy crouched behind the plate at Target Field in Minneapolis, completely and utterly overwhelmed.
The young Brewers catcher wasn't supposed to be in the major leagues already. He had played just 21 games at the Triple-A level, but injuries and departures had blazed the path for his extraordinarily...
