Jonathan Lucroy Contract Details With Angels
Former Louisiana Ragin' Cajun baseball star Jonathan Lucroy has officially found a new home.
Lucroy officially signed with the Los Angeles Angels this week, and details of his one-year deal are starting to emerge.
The 32-year old Lucroy will stand to make $50K if he notches 100 starts in 2019, $75K each for hitting the 105, 110, 115, 120, 125, and 130 games started marks, and $100K if he starts 135 games. He’ll also earn $50K each for notching 350 and 375 plate appearances, respectively, and $75K if he accrues 400, 425, 450, 475 and 500 plate appearances. In the event he reaches the 525 plate appearance plateau, he'll earn an extra $100K.
A member of the UL baseball squad from 2005-2007, before being drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the third round of the 2007 amateur entry draft, Lucroy, a two-time National League All-Star selection (2014 & 2016), hit a .241, to go along with 4 home runs and 51 runs batted in for the Oakland A's last season.
