Lucroy homered, a solo shot, and walked in a 1-for-3 game Monday against the Cubs.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Lucroy now has three dingers in as many games and is turning a solid start to the season into a great one. His 5-for-13 performance over the past three games has raised his batting line from .302/.362/.457 to .311/.377/.515. That's even better than his performance in his near-MVP 2014 campaign, when he hit .301/.373/.465. His trade value has to be near its peak, and Lucroy could be on the move soon.

Lucroy is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Marlins.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Lucroy tallied multiple hits in five of his last seven starts, but manager Craig Counsell decided to hold him out Monday in favor of Martin Maldonado, who will catch Wily Peralta for the fifth straight game. At least for the time being, it looks like Lucroy's days off will come whenever Peralta is slated to take the mound.

Will return to the lineup in Saturday's matchup with the Reds, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Lucroy got the night off Friday, but will return to action in game two of the Brewers' series with the Reds. He will take care of duties behind the plate and bat clean up. The veteran catcher is batting just .125 in 24 at-bats versus south paws this season, but will look to turn things around Saturday.

Lucroy is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Reds.

Competitive Edge Analysis

This appears to be a standard day off for Lucroy, who's currently slashing .308/.376/.429 on the season. He should slot back into the lineup Saturday, but Martin Maldonado will take his place behind the dish for Friday's contest to catch for Tyler Cravy.

Lucroy homered, his first, as part of a 2-for-3 day with two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Lucroy had been doing just about everything except hitting for power thus far, and after this game he owns a sparkling .321/.387/.440 batting line. This is the kind of performance people -- including potential trade suitors -- needed to see after his injury-riddled 2015 season. Lucroy hit .301/.373/.465 in a near-MVP level season for the Brewers in 2014, and it looks like he has returned to that form here in 2016.

Lucroy is not in the starting lineup Sunday against the Marlins.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After catching four straight games for the Brew Crew, Lucroy will get a regular day off in favor of Martin Maldonado behind the plate. The veteran backstop is working on a three-game hit streak, bringing his average back up to .299 on the season. He should be available in a pinch-hit situation, if needed.
