Rockies Interested in Reunion with Jonathan Lucroy
Could a former Louisiana Ragin' Cajun great soon be returning to one of his former Major League Baseball employers?
The Rockies reportedly have an interest in bringing catcher Jonathan Lucroy back to Colorado.
Lucroy played 46 games with the Rockies in 2017, hitting .310 with two home runs and 13 runs batted in.
Lucroy, who finished the 2019 season with the Chicago Cubs, after being waived by the Los Angeles Angels, has played for six MLB clubs.
A member of the UL baseball squad from 2005-2007, before being drafted by Milwaukee in the third round of the 2007 amateur entry draft, Lucroy spent his first 6-and-a-half seasons with the Brewers, who, like the Cubs, are members of the National League Central.
A native of Eustis, Florida, Lucroy hit .242 with the Angels last season, to go along with seven home runs and 30 runs batted in, prior to leaving for Chicago, where he hit .189 with one homer and six RBI's.
The 33-year old Lucroy has played for the Brewers, Rangers, Rockies, A's, Angels, and Cubs throughout his career.
A 2016 MLB All-Star, Lucroy has compiled a .274 career average in 10 seasons, to go along with 108 homers and 545 runs batted in.
