Baer: Jonathan Lucroy has broken the doubles record for catchers

With a first-inning double in tonight’s game against the Cardinals, his 48th of the season, Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy broke the doubles record for catchers, per ESPN Stats & Info on Twitter. Ivan Rodriguez held the record previously, doubling 47 times in 1996 though two of those doubles were hit as a DH. 41 of Lucroy’s 48 doubles have been hit when he has been in the lineup as a catcher (six at first base, one at DH)...

he entered the night with a .299/.366/.476 slash line along with 13 home runs and 62 RBI.

BtBS: Jonathan Lucroy is the best catcher in baseball

This season, Lucroy has compiled a .325/.394/.491 batting line for a 146 wRC+ and 2.4 fWAR, easily the highest mark among catchers. Over the last calendar year, he’s managed a .306/.370/.480 line for a 135 wRC+ and 5.3 fWAR. That’s a half win more than Molina and almost two full wins more than Posey. [...]

Lucroy, Molina and Posey all rate very highly with regards to pitch-framing. Of the three, Lucroy is clearly the best.
