While Stearns has assured that the Brewers don’t have any potential deals lined up for Lucroy at the moment, Lucroy will continue to be a target of trade speculation, particularly if he remains with the team up to the non-waiver trade deadline in the summer.
Lucroy will make $4 million this season, and has a team option for $5.25 million for 2017.
