MLB hot stove: Jonathan Lucroy agrees to 1-year deal with Angels, report says | MLB

Jonathan Lucroy has found a home.

According to Yahoo Sports, the Angels have agreed to sign the catcher to a one-year deal worth $3.35 million. The deal could be worth more than $4 million depending on his performance.

Lucroy hit .241 with four home runs and 51 RBIs last season. He has played in two All-Star games, both of which came with his former team the Brewers.

The catcher has also played for the Rangers, Athletics and Rockies in his career.

He threw out 30 percent of baserunners last season (30 of 103).

Lucroy will be joining an Angels team that batted .220 as a team at the catcher’s spot last year. The 32-year-old has never batted worse than .241 in a season.

But he played all of last year in the Oakland Coliseum which is a notorious pitcher’s ballpark. Lucroy’s on-base plus slugging was 121 points higher on the road than at home in 2018 (.675-.554.)
