Reports: Cubs Land Jonathan Lucroy
While there aren’t any official details as of post time, it appears as though the Cubs have added veteran catcher Jonathan Lucroy to help with their depth down the stretch. The former Brewer has fallen off considerably from his All-Star performances I’m Milwaukee, but he’s been a target for a while now as the Cubs seek to bridge the next 4 weeks Willson Contreras is on the IL.
Sources: Lucroy goes to Cubs

Can confirm Jonathan Lucroy joining Cubs . Nothing official at this point by team.

Lucroy had been released by the Angels and cleared through release waivers, so the Cubs only have to pay him a prorated portion of the league-minimum. Stay tuned for more details, but the expectation is that Taylor Davis will be optioned back to Triple-A to make room.
