A former Louisiana Ragin’ Cajun baseball standout is projected to have another solid Major League Baseball season in 2019.

Catcher Jonathan Lucroy, now a member of the Los Angeles Angels, is expected to produce both at the plate, and behind it, at his new home this season.

A member of the UL baseball squad from 2005-2007, before being drafted by the Brewers in the third round of the 2007 amateur entry draft, Lucroy is projected to hit a .259 this coming season, to go along with 8 home runs, 52 runs batted in, a .321 on-base percentage, and a .376 slugging percentage according to RotoChamp, who releases projections on every Major League Baseball player prior to each season.

A native of Eustis, Florida, Lucroy hit a .241 last season for the Oakland A's, to go along with four home runs and 51 runs batted in.

The 32-year old Lucroy, in his first season with the Angels, has also played for the Brewers, Rangers, Rockies, and A's.

A 2016 MLB All-Star, Lucroy has compiled a .277 career average in 9 seasons, to go along with 100 homers and 509 runs batted in.
