One of the pitchers who could be made available at the trade deadline is the Brewers’ Yovani Gallardo. But trading he has a limited no-trade clause. Chris Cotillo has a report of which ten teams are on that list over at SBNation’s MLB Daily Dish. Go read his post for who is on the list, but here’s a look who isn’t:

Absent from the list are the Arizona Diamondbacks, who according to’s Ken Rosenthal, have interest in trading for him. The Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Dodgers, who are also expected to pursue Gallardo, can also acquire him without his approval.

On the list, though, are multiple teams which are likely in the market for pitching.

    Theres definitely a few no brainers on the list….he must have something against being in the AL East lol. Maybe too tough for him?

    And interesting the Pirates are on his list as they have the best record in baseball…yeah yeah, theyve collapsed after solid starts the past couple years, and still havent had a winning season since 92, i get it. Just sayin, i BELIEVE this season will be different….

    But hell, he may just not want to go there because of the owner/management and the fact he wont make any dough there. What do i know?

      “It happened so fast, same thing last night,” said Chisenhall. “It’s the way the AL East plays. Runs just show up on the board.”

      Is a quote from Chisenhill of the Indians… I assume that might be why he lists a lot of ALE teams…

    “The Brewers are not yet sure if they will trade Gallardo, but would only do so with no restrictions, meaning that the ten teams on his no-trade list are likely eliminated from the race to acquire him.”


    If one of the ten teams on the list gives the best offer, and Gallardo acquiesces, of course the Brewers will deal with them. They aren’t going to eliminate those teams outright just because it’ll be a little more work to get a deal done.

    A lot of times No-trade lists aren’t about if the player wants to avoid certain teams, it’s about adding teams most likely to want to trade for him, so that the player can then negotiate away the trade rights for additional compensation/bonus. Something like “Sure, I’ll wave my no trade clause, but you have to pickup that option year.”

      Carl Crawford said that, when the time came, he waived his no-trade clause without a second thought. If one team wanted him more than his current team did, then he’d rather play for the other. It made me wonder why he wanted it in the first place.

        Crawford decided that he didn’t like Boston.

    Get him Rangers ! He would love being on a team who swept the Cardinals in St.Louis and took 2 out of 3 from the Yankees in the Bronx ! :)

    By the way the Rangers are the reason the Pirates have the best record at the moment ! The Cardinals had the best record till the Rangers swept them !

      Thanks to the first couple of weeks in June, the Rangers are also the reason the Rangers don’t have the best record in baseball anymore.
