As coach

Edward Lee Lucas (born May 21, 1982) is an American former professional baseball third baseman and current hitting coach for the San Francisco Giants.

After graduating from Dartmouth College in 2004, Lucas played in minor league baseball through 2013, when he made his Major League Baseball (MLB) debut with the Miami Marlins.


Lucas attended Spruce Creek High School in Port Orange, Florida, and Dartmouth College. He graduated from Dartmouth in 2004 with a degree in sociology and economics.[1] Lucas played college baseball for Dartmouth under head coach Bob Whalen; and also played American football in his freshman year.[2] Lucas won the Ivy League batting title as a senior, and was named Ivy League Player of the Year and received honors as Dartmouth's Most Outstanding Male Athlete of the Year.[1][3]

Kansas City Royals

The Kansas City Royals selected Lucas in the eighth round of the 2004 Major League Baseball Draft. As Lucas could not return to college, he had little leverage in negotiations, and received a $1,000 signing bonus. He made his minor league baseball debut with the Idaho Falls Chukars of the Rookie-level Pioneer League, and earned $101 a month after expenses. Needing to work during the offseason, Lucas took jobs in construction, substitute teaching, bartending, and as a temp for the Charles Schwab Corporation.[1]

Lucas had a .307 batting average for the Omaha Royals of the Class AAA Pacific Coast League (PCL) in 2010, but the Royals did not promote him to the major leagues.

Atlanta Braves

A free agent after the season, Lucas signed with the Atlanta Braves, receiving an invitation to spring training in 2011. He played for the Mississippi Braves of the Class AA Southern League and Gwinnett Braves of the Class AAA International League in 2011, but had a .238 batting average.

Los Angeles Angels

He signed with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for the 2012 season, which he spent with the Salt Lake Bees of the PCL, batting .262.[1]

Miami Marlins

In 2013, Lucas signed with the Miami Marlins. After batting .304 in his first 46 games with the New Orleans Zephyrs of the PCL, the Marlins promoted Lucas to the major leagues for the first time on May 29, 2013.[1][4] He played in 94 total games, hitting .256, with 4 home runs and 28 runs batted in. The next season, Lucas continued his utility role, batting .251 in 69 games.

Texas Rangers

Lucas was claimed by the Texas Rangers on October 10, 2014.[5]

Seattle Mariners

During the 2015-16 offseason, he signed a minor league contract with the Seattle Mariners.[6] He was released on May 18, 2016.

Arizona Diamondbacks

On May 20, 2016, Lucas signed a minor league deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Free agent on November 2, 2016.

Post Playing Career
