EDGE Analysis

Lucroy will sit for just the third time in Oakland's last 17 games, quite the heavy workload for a catcher. Josh Phegley will start in his place.

Lucroy went 3-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and four RBI in Wednesday's 8-3 win over the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

The catcher has been a one-man wrecking crew as Oakland completed a season sweep of Toronto, going 5-for-9 with two doubles and seven RBI in the just-completed three-game series. Lucroy's .247/.306/.334 slash line on the season remains disappointing, but he could be saving the best for last in his first campaign with the A's.

Lucroy went 2-for-5 with a double, a grand slam home run and two runs overall in a win over the Rangers on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Lucroy set the tone for the blowout victory with a second-inning, 408-foot blast that brought home a trio of his teammates. The veteran backstop has shown a knack for timely hitting of late, as he's knocked in seven of his nine RBI for the month over the last five games. The homer ended a significant power drought for Lucroy, who'd last left the yard May 27 for his only other round tripper of the season.

Lucroy laced a game-winning RBI single in his only at-bat during an extra-innings victory over the Giants on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Lucroy had been held out of the starting lineup in place of Josh Phegley on Saturday, as he'd been mired in a 2-for-28 slump. However, the veteran backstop was able to drop a single into right center off reliever Will Smith, plating Matt Chapman with the winning run. The 32-year-old can only hope the clutch hit serves as a launchpad for a successful stretch at the plate, considering he's seen his season average take a 27-point tumble since June 26.

Lucroy went 1-for-3 with two RBI from a sacrifice fly and a single in a win over the Giants on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Lucroy musted his first multi-RBI effort since June 26 in the win, a relatively rare taste of offensive success in a lackluster July thus far for the veteran. The 32-year-old heads into the All-Star break hitting just .125 (4-for-32) in July, While all of his offensive numbers have taken a tumble this season, Lucroy has been lauded for his work behind the dish with the team's pitching staff, which projects to continue affording him regular playing time during the second half.
