Brewers Turned Down Extension Overtures From Jonathan Lucroy

Jul 22, 2015 6:48 AM

Jonathan Lucroy says he was turned down by the Milwaukee Brewers when his representatives raised the possibility of a second extension last offseason.

The catcher, 29, mentioned that "a little bit of talk earlier in Spring Training … really didn't go anywhere" in an appearance on 105.7 The Fan.

Expanding on those comments later, Lucroy said that he came to the team with "a proposal that would have kept me here for the rest of my career, most likely." He was informed that the team was not "interested in doing anything at this point in time."
