Jonathan Lucroy (MIL) – Lucroy and the Brewers are a focal point of our content on Sunday. They face Tommy Milone who has allowed a .326 wOBA and 1.27 HR/9 to RHBs since 2012. Milone has generally pitched in favorable environments and on Sunday is forced to pitch in a park that inflates home runs 9-10 percent above the league average. For a fly ball pitcher like Milone (39.6 percent GB Rate against RHBs since 2012), this is a huge challenge. The Brewers are also an exceptionally talented offense against LHP. Carlos Gomez, Ryan Braun, Aramis Ramirez, and Jonathan Lucroy all own a wOBA above .360 and an ISO above .195 against LHP since 2012. Lucroy is on the lower end of those spectrums (.378 wOBA, .196 ISO) which is phenomenal for a catcher. All four of the Brewers primary RHBs rank inside our Top 20 hitters and Lucroy comes with the friendliest price tag at the thinnest position. Lucroy’s last off day was last Saturday which brings some risk but we should have a Brewers lineup well before lock.
