Drafted in the 12th round (383rd overall) by the Cleveland Indians in 2012
The state of Indiana boasts three of the draft's better college catching prospects in Lucas, Kevin Plawecki (Purdue) and Joe Hudson (Notre Dame. Lucas, the 2012 Missouri Valley Conference player of the year, has raised his profile this spring by improving his power and defense. He has made consistent line-drive contact for three years at Indiana State, and now the 6-foot-1, 205-pound righthanded hitters is driving the ball more often. Lucas still has work to do behind the plate but looks like he belongs there. He has fringy arm strength and his throws sometimes tail on him, which is why he nabbed just 24 percent of basestealers in the regular season. He's a choppy receiver but has handled the ball better in 2012 than he had in the past. He moves decently for a catcher and projects as an offensive-minded backup.
