PHOENIX (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers love the players they have up the middle. Carlos Gomez is a Gold Glove center fielder, and speedy shortstop Jean Segura is one of the majors' best young players.

Then there's catcher Jonathan Lucroy, who has quietly developed into an important cornerstone behind the plate.

Lucroy was one of the top hitting catchers last season with a .280 average, 18 homers and 82 RBIs. He added nine steals and six triples, good speed numbers for a catcher.

A solid receiver, Lucroy said he would like to improve on throwing out runners. He threw out 20.8 percent of potential base stealers last year, 18th in the majors.

Lucroy has emerged as a leader. Manager Ron Roenicke says Lucroy goes out of his way to help his teammates.
