Jonthan Lucroy (C, OAK) - Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups


BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 38% of leagues

ANALYSIS: Oakland Athletics catcher Jonathan Lucroy is hitting .243 on the season with two home runs, 32 RBI and 26 runs scored. Lucroy has looked strong recently with hits in four of his last six, including a home run and seven RBI. He hasn't been the same catcher offensively since his trade from the Brewers two seasons ago, however, he finds himself in a great position for offensive production.

Lucroy will see regular playing time on a team that currently ranks sixth in the MLB with 488 runs scored. Over the last week, the A's rank second in the MLB with 39 runs scored. Despite hitting at the bottom of the lineup, Lucroy is usually followed by potent hitters such as Marcus Semien, Davis and Stephen Piscotty. With speedsters like Dustin Fowler in front of him, Lucroy should still have an opportunity to produce and score runs.

The A's seem to be streaking right at the moment, and Lucroy has followed suit with an impressive showing over his last few games. Oakland's catcher is just two years removed from an All-Star appearance and has shown he has what it takes to be an elite offensive weapon.

As he continues to see regular starts, Lucroy remains an option in 12-man leagues. If he's able to continue his strong hitting, it may not be long that he remains under 50% owned.
