Robert Murray reports catcher Jonathan Lucroy has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Washington Nationals.
The 10-year veteran is best known for his six seasons behind the plate as a Milwaukee Brewers, appearing in 805 games. As a Brewer, he hit .284 with 79 home runs.
Lucroy last played as a member of the Boston Red Sox, appearing in one game with the team.
He was hopeful to land a roster spot with the Chicago White Sox during Spring Training but asked to be released from a minor-league contract.
It is expected that Lucroy will slot into the lineup behind starting catcher Yan Gomes. In his second season with the team, Gomes appeared in 30 games, hitting .284 with four home runs.
The Nationals are +3000 to win the World Series on FanDuel Sportsbook. The team has yet to play this season, with nine players currently in quarantine and isolation due to COVID-19 protocols. It is unclear whether the team will start their three-game series against the Atlanta Braves Monday.
