Report: Rangers have tabled extension talks with Jonathan Lucroy

The Texas Rangers may have to prepare for their catcher to hit free agency at season’s end.

According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Rangers have tabled contract talks with Jonathan Lucroy, potentially opening the door for his departure at season’s end.

Lucroy was the Rangers’ big trade deadline acquisition last July, and has a long track record of being one of the game’s more reliable catchers. He hit 11 home runs in 47 games after the Rangers acquired him, and though the catcher position is demanding, he’s still fairly young by baseball standards at age 30.

It’s worth noting that Lucroy might not be the only big-name catcher hitting the open market at season’s end.
