Haudricourt: Where will Lucroy end up?

Jonathan Lucroy has an extensive no-trade list. Will he be moved? If so, where? Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Brewers beat writer Tom Haudricourt provides some insight.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

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.

Schroeder: A good move by Counsell

F.S. Wisconsin Brewers color commentator Bill Schroeder thinks Craig Counsell made the right move by sitting down Jonathan Villar last night.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

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.
