Here's a twist to Milwaukee's Jonathan Lucroy trade talks: Lucroy's contract includes a limited no-trade clause that allows him to block deals to the Indians, Tigers, Angels, Nationals, Twins, Athletics, Padres and Mariners. Cleveland is the most noteworthy team on that list. The provision in Lucroy's contract doesn't preclude a trade, but it's an additional obstacle the Indians would have to surmount.
Zach Davies continues his roll
Davies notched his third win in four starts this month on Thursday. The 23-year-old was 1-3 with a 5.75 ERA in his first seven starts this season, but he's 7-1 with a 2.47 ERA in 11 starts since then and tied for the NL high in wins over that span (May 27 to date), the Elias Sports Bureau notes.
The Brewers reportedly have received an offer for Ryan Braun, but any deal seems very unlikely.

Milwaukee catcher Jonathan Lucroy is out of the lineup today against Arizona lefty Robbie Ray, but hold the hysteria. It's a day game after a night game and Lucroy is hitting .238 vs. left-handers this season, so it makes sense for Brewers manager Craig Counsell to rest him in favor of Martin Maldonado. There's a good chance Lucroy gets moved by Monday's deadline, but he's sitting today because it was a scheduled day off -- not because a trade is imminent.
Lineup: Brewers (43-56) vs. Diamondbacks (42-59)
- 1. Jake Elmore, 3B (R)
- 2. Scooter Gennett, 2B (L)
- 3. Ryan Braun, LF (R)
- 4. Chris Carter, 1B (R)
- 5. Hernan Perez, SS (R)
- 6. Martin Maldonado, C (R)
- 7. Keon Broxton, CF (R)
- 8. Ramon Flores, RF (L)
- 9. Zach Davies, RHP Daily notes
