RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Lucroy languished in anonymity for a few years, but he became a household name last season after smashing a league-best 53 doubles and finishing fourth in NL MVP voting. His home run and RBI numbers dipped a bit, but he also hit .300 and finished with the most at-bats among all catchers by playing at first base as well, something he figures to do again in 2015. Lucroy isn’t hiding any longer -- he will be among the first catchers taken in fantasy drafts this spring, and rightfully so.

2014

Though his name doesn’t often come up when discussing the top hitting catchers in the league, Lucroy finished the 2013 season with the ninth best OPS among catchers who saw at least 400 plate appearances, and more impressively, the most RBI. Each of Lucroy’s slash numbers dipped from the previous season, but he played in a career-best 147 games and showed good power with 49 extra-base hits overall. Lucroy figures to bat in the middle third of the Brewers’ order, and his power production could be a bargain for fantasy owners in the mid-to-later rounds.

2013

Lucroy made a big jump at the plate lat season, essentially matching his production from the season before despite playing in 40 fewer games. Lucroy does not take many walks, but he improved both his eye at the plate and his power, striking out just 44 times in 316 at-bats and slugging .513, the third highest rate for any catcher that appeared in 75 games. A full season from Lucroy in 2013 will give him a chance to end the year as a top-10 fantasy catcher.

2012

Lucroy was respectable during his first full season in the majors, hitting .265/.313/.391, though he fell off a bit in the second half of the season. He should start 130-plus games again in 2012 and has the potential to be a bit above average, particularly if he's able recoup the sharp decline in his contact rate (84 percent in 2010 to 77 last season).

2011

Lucroy started 2010 in Double-A Huntsville was pushed to the majors in May after Gregg Zaun went down with a season ending injury. He hit .253/.300/.329 in 75 games for Milwaukee with four home runs. It's doubtful that he'll ever hit for much power, but he's shown good plate discipline in the minors and could approach a .300 batting average during his peak seasons. He'll return as Milwaukee's starting catcher in 2011.

2010

Lucroy saw his prospect status rise in 2009 despite putting up modest numbers at Double-A Huntsville where he hit .264/.377/.409. He saved his season by hitting .337/.426/.565 in 92 August at-bats and then following that up with an impressive Arizona Fall League. The Brewers will give him the chance to make the team as their starting catcher during spring training, which should keep him on every fantasy owner's radar. While he's no frontrunner for the Rookie of the Year award, he could be better than a number of other catchers if he gets regular playing time.

2009

Lucroy is starting to get noticed after hitting .292/.364/.479 for High-A Brevard County after spending the first half of the season at Low-A West Virginia. He has shown good plate discipline and hit 20 home runs between both levels to become one of the Brewers' better prospects. The Brewers may start him at Double-A Huntsville in 2009 where he'll be one level behind another highly touted catcher in Angel Salome.
