The #Astros do not appear to be in the mix for Jonathan Lucroy. Their reported pursuit was overblown, according to one source.— Jerry Crasnick (@jcrasnick) July 28, 2016
Jonathan Lucroy is .238/.312/.413 vs. lefties this year, and .320/.378/.510 vs. righties. Might explain why he's sitting vs. Ray. #Brewers— Jerry Crasnick (@jcrasnick) July 28, 2016
Jerry Crasnick's take: Lucroy is out of the lineup Thursday against Arizona lefty Robbie Ray, but hold the hysteria. It's a day game after a night game and Lucroy is hitting .238 against left-handers this season, so it makes sense for Brewers manager Craig Counsell to rest him in favor of Martin Maldonado. There's a good chance Lucroy gets moved by Monday's trade deadline, but he's sitting Thursday because it was a scheduled day off -- not because a trade is imminent.
