MILWAUKEE — Veteran catcher Jonathan Lucroy says the Milwaukee Brewers should trade him as the team begins a rebuilding process.

Lucroy says he wants to win, to go to a World Series, and that’s not going to happen with the Brewers in the foreseeable future. The 29-year-old catcher tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ( ) that "rebuilding is not a lot of fun for any veteran guy."

In six major league seasons, all with Milwaukee, Lucroy has batted .282 with 66 home runs and 337 RBIs.

Lucroy says he hasn’t demanded a trade and wouldn’t show up at spring training with a bad attitude. He has two years left on his contract that includes $4 million this year and $5.2 million next year.

The Brewers went 68-94 last season and changed managers.
