Lucroy is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

Robinson Chirinos will take over behind the plate Saturday as Lucroy gets the day off after catching five days in a row. Lucroy is hitting just .242 since joining the Rangers, but his power has been as-advertised as he's slugged seven bombs in 66 at-bats with Texas. He figures to rejoin the lineup for Sunday's contest.

Lucroy is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rays, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lucroy will get a regular day of rest after starting three straight games and seven of the last eight overall. The backstop has an impressive 1.056 OPS since landing in Texas, but the Rangers won't have that pop in their lineup Sunday against lefty Drew Smyly, as Robinson Chirinos will take over behind the plate.

Lucroy went 2-for-4 with a homer and a two-run double in Wednesday's win over the A's.

EDGE Analysis

That's now an amazing seven homers in 15 games for Lucroy since the Rangers acquired him from Milwaukee at the deadline, lifting him to 20 on the year -- the first time he's ever reached that mark. But hey, this is the season of the long ball, and Lucroy's in a great spot to rack up more of them down the stretch.

Lucroy is out of the lineup for the series opener against the Astros on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

This marks Lucroy's first day off since joining the Rangers, having started the past three games behind the plate. He has gone 2-for-10 with a home run and two RBI, but will get some rest in favor of Robinson Chirinos on Friday. Lucroy will likely be back in the lineup for Saturday's contest.

Lucroy is starting at catcher and batting sixth Tuesday against Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

After being acquired by the Rangers just before the trade deadline Monday, Lucroy will now make his first start with his new big league club. The 30-year-old slashed .299/.359/.482 through 95 games with Milwaukee and will be a huge boost to Texas' offensive production if he can continue to put up those types of numbers.

Lucroy was traded to the Rangers on Monday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lucroy was one of the top available players on the trade market, and the Rangers snapped him up with just minutes to spare before the deadline. It's not entirely clear where Lucroy will hit in a deep and talented Rangers lineup, but he will have a regular spot in the lineup while taking over as the Rangers' primary catcher.

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

EDGE Analysis

A proposed deal to send Lucroy to Cleveland is dead following the backstop's veto, according to MLB.com's Adam McCalvy, but the Brewers won't use him in their lineup as they attempt to pursue other potential trade partners. It seems unlikely a new deal will be completed prior to Monday afternoon's deadline, but Lucroy will sit anyway as the team mulls their options. In the meantime, Martin Maldonado should see regular starts behind the plate.

Lucroy has exercised his no-trade clause to veto a pending deal to Cleveland, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lucroy had a no-trade clause in his contract for eight teams, and Cleveland was one of them. Although the move is surprising, it was entirely within his rights to do so. The Brewers still have time to put together a deal for Lucroy prior to Monday's 4 PM ET trade deadline, but the backstop's decision puts them in a tough spot where he could potentially remain in Milwaukee until the offseason.
