East Carolina's ace is the younger brother of Brewers catcher Jonathan LuCroy. Like Jonathan, David's arm strength has come on more as he's aged. The younger LuCroy worked at 88-93 this spring, and his fastball has late sink to it. There's also some deception in the 6-foot, 215-pounder's delivery. His slider shows late, two-plane break and is an above-average pitch for him on the right day. LuCroy has worked on a changeup, and the pitch shows promise, but is well below-average at present. LuCroy's stuff holds up well deep into games, and he's able to generate weak contact when he's pounding the bottom of the strike zone. After a strong showing as a redshirt freshman in 2013, LuCroy battled command in 2014. He has bounced back strong this spring, and some scouts see him as a strong middle reliever, with a chance for him to develop into a back-of-the-rotation starter.
