Ryan Braun will become a "10 and 5" player this Sunday, giving him full veto power over any trade from the Milwaukee Brewers.
"When it comes to the trade stuff, I don't think it's very relevant," Braun said of his pending veto power.
Brewers general manager David Stearns agreed, using the same words: "not relevant."
When a player has been in the Major Leagues 10 years, including at least the last five with the same club, they gain full no-trade rights.
In Braun's case, the "10 and 5" rights don't matter much because presently there are only six teams to which he can be traded without his permission. He also entered the season with four years and $76 million remaining on his contract.
