I think I understand what you're asking.
When you see somebody say "he doesn't have (or does have) no trade protection" they are saying he doesn't (or does) have a clause in his contract that protects him from being traded without his consent or he has earned that right by being in the major for 10 years, the last 5 with the same team.
When a player has a limited no trade clause, he has negotiated into his contract a guarantee that he cannot be traded to a limited number of teams (usually the high-money teams) without his consent. That clause is used so that if a team wants to trade a player to, say, the Yankees, the can use the leverage of being able to say no to negotiate a better deal for himself.
