Jonathan Lucroy joins Braves, starting Wednesday afternoon

Atlanta Braves catcher Jonathan Lucroy is in the starting lineup for Wednesday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Wil Crowe and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

What It Means:

The Braves purchased Lucroy's contract from Triple-A Gwinnett to replace William Contreras on the active roster. Lucroy signed a minor-league deal with Atlanta in mid-May after he was released by the Washington Nationals in April. He will catch for Drew Smyly on Wednesday and hit eighth while Kevan Smith sits.

numberFire’s models project Lucroy for 8.1 FanDuel points and he has a $2,000 salary on Wednesday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Braves are currently one of only three teams in the majors on Wednesday with an implied total above 5.0 runs. Crowe is registering a 20.0 strikeout percentage with a 10.9 walk percentage this season.
