Reports: Brewers near Lucroy trade with Indians

The Milwaukee Brewers have an agreement in place to trade All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy to the Cleveland Indians, according to multiple reports.

Lucroy must first approve the deal because of his limited no-trade clause that allows him to block trades to eight teams, including the Indians.

The clubs are in the process of exchanging medicals.

A source told Fox Sports that the Brewers would receive four players from the Indians if Lucroy signs off on the deal.

A two-time All-Star, Lucroy is batting .300 with 13 homers and 50 RBIs. He has a $ 4 million salary this year as part of a contract that includes a $ 5.25 million team option for 2017.

Lucroy was held out of Saturday night’s 5-3 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates as Milwaukee considered trade possibilities.

The Indians have been in the market for a catcher since Yan Gomes, who struggled most of the first half, was put on the DL on July 18 with a shoulder injury. Gomes is expected to miss four to eight weeks.

Information from ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick was used in this report. – TOP
