The Milwaukee Brewers gave California Warriors alum Lucas Erceg a shot to prove himself this spring, bringing him along to big-league camp as a non-roster invitee. True to form, Erceg is off to a blistering start, turning heads with stellar performances one after the other and solidifying his spot as the 7th ranked prospect in the Brewers system.
Lucas showed he can swing it in clutch situations during a matchup against the Cincinnati Reds, when he stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the 9th with the scored tied 2-2 and knocked a walkoff Single into right field. A few games later, Erceg really made his presence felt when the Brewers leveled Cleveland by a score of 14-4; Lucas accounted for 5 of those Runs, when he launched a 6th Inning Grand Slam onto the roof in right field and followed that up with a solo shot in the 8th.
Over 20 AB this spring, Erceg is batting a scorching-hot .450/.500/.1300 with 5 Runs, 7 RBI, and 2 HR. We’re looking forward watching Lucas’ career unfold, and wish him the best of luck!
