Jonathan Lucroy (MIL) – All season long Coors Field has been a challenge from a weather standpoint, but on Friday the conditions are optimal for hitting. Instead of worrying about rain or snow, we have a forecast with temperatures in the 80s and 90s and wind blowing out to right field. Coors Field is known for altitude and thin air but with elevated temperatures, we’ll get an even better hitting environment. Aside from the nice park shift, Lucroy gets a favorable matchup for his skill set. He owns a .384 wOBA and .199 ISO against LHP since 2012 and will face Jorge de la Rosa who has allowed a .338 wOBA and 1.04 HR/9 to RHBs during that span. Lucroy ranks inside our Top 15 overall hitters in our model, which makes him the clear cut top catcher play.
