Jonathan Lucroy is one of those players that despite his potential and obvious talent, still hasn't signed for any team during this difficult offseason. Until this day. According to various sources, the former All-Star signed with the Oakland Athletics for one year.


Sources have informed Jane Lee from that both parts reached an agreement this Friday, with the details of the deal haven't been revealed yet.

The 31-year-old was the best catcher available in the free agency, having being named to two All-Star games in 2014, 2016 and has played for the Milwaukee Brewers, Texas Rangers, and Colorado Rockies. 


He was traded mid-season from Texas to Colorado last year and had a not so good season, as he played only 126 for both teams and finished the campaign with an average of .265, and he hit 6 home runs and brought 40 runs to the plate.
