Cubs Add Lucroy

CHICAGO (AP) — Manager Joe Maddon says the Chicago Cubs have signed catcher Jonathan Lucroy. The 33-year-old Lucroy was designated for assignment by the Angels last Friday. The two-time All-Star is expected to join the NL Central-leading Cubs in Cincinnati on Thursday. Lucroy will help plug a gap created when All-Star Willson Contreras strained his hamstring. Lucroy returned to the Angels last week after suffering a concussion and broken nose in home plate collision with Houston’s Jake Marisnick on July 7.
