Jonathan Lucroy (MIL) – Lucroy is our top catcher option on Saturday. He’s posted a solid .346 wOBA and .155 ISO against RHP since 2012 and faces rookie RHP Josh Smith who has really struggled in his first two big league outings (5.63 ERA, 2.13 WHIP with 10 BB in 8 IP). Lucroy gets a favorable lineup spot (second) in an offense with one of the higher implied run totals on the evening. The catcher position lacks depth and Lucroy is one of the easier ways to access an offense we’re excited about.
