It’s not clear the level of interest the Red Sox have in Jonathan Lucroy, but certainly the fewer roadblocks if trade talks heat up, the better it is for Dave Dombrowski.

That’s why the fact that the Red Sox aren’t on Lucroy’s no-trade list is of some note.

According to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick, the list of eight teams the Milwaukee catcher can block trades to include the Twins, Angels, Athletics, Padres, Mariners, Nationals, Indians and Tigers.

Perhaps the most noteworthy of those teams mentioned are Cleveland and Detroit, both of which have reportedly shown interest in the 30-year-old. It doesn’t mean Lucroy can’t be dealt to those teams, just that he must approve any deal.

Some of the other organizations who have been linked to talks for Lucroy, besides the Red Sox, include the Mets and Rangers.

Lucroy is slated to make $5.25 million next season, a number he could possibly renegotiate if a trade to one of the teams on his list are involved.

The catcher is having a stellar year for the struggling Brewers, hitting .300 with an .848 OPS and 13 home runs.
