Right handed pitcher Zack Greinke could be on the move before the July Trade Deadline if the Brewers can't sign him to a long-term deal Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports reports. “They're definitely expecting to move him unless something changes and they re-sign him,” a rival executive told Rosenthal.
General Manager Doug Melvin said that they haven't decided whether they will try to deal Greinke or any other player. “I haven't sat down with ownership,” Melvin said. “I haven't talked to any club yet to say, ‘Give names.' I haven't had that conversation.”
“We've got to make a decision on what we're doing overall,” Melvin said. “We're hoping we can put a good week together. If we don't, we've got to be prepared to go both ways. A lot more clubs are starting to call now. Clubs are calling on different players.”
Back in April, we wrote about the possibility of Greinke pulling off a Matt Cain type deal (six-years, $112.5 million). The 28-year old Greinke is 8-2 with a 2.81 ERA, 0.3 HR/9, 2.0 BB/9 and 9.3 SO/9 in 96.0 innings with the Brewers in 2012.

The Milwaukee Brewers say they have not yet made a decision on whether to trade right-hander Zack Greinke or any other player.
But two rival executives said Tuesday that the Brewers are preparing to move Greinke if they are unable to sign him long-term before the July 31 non-waiver deadline.
Greinke, 8-2 with a 2.81 ERA, is eligible for free agency at the end of the season.
Zack Greinke has never lost to the Cincinnati Reds, while the Milwaukee Brewers' only victory in the season series this year came when they beat Homer Bailey in May.
Those starters will meet Wednesday and that matchup should give the Brewers hope as they look to avoid a three-game sweep at Great American Ball Park.
Cincinnati (41-32) has always has trouble with Greinke (8-2...
When Royals fans aren't wondering when hot-hitting Will Myers will be called up, they're likely wondering the same about right-handed prospect Jake Odorizzi.
Odorizzi, the key component to the Zack Greinke trade, continues to dominate at Class AAA Omaha, posting a 5-0 record with a 2.72 ERA.
Odorizzi had 10-days off between his most recent start, but Royals fans shouldn...
The Milwaukee Brewers reportedly may trade pitcher Zack Greinke if they cannot reach agreement with him on a long-term contract by the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. Based on information provided by two executives outside the Brewers' organization, FoxSports.com reported the Brewers' inclination to trade Greinke, who is scheduled to become a free agent at the end of...
CINCINNATI -- Tuesday, the Texas Rangers placed Colby Lewis on the disabled list with right elbow tendinitis.
Wednesday, a Texas Rangers scout arrived at Great American Ballpark for Zack Greinke's start against the Cincinnati Reds.
There are no scouting coincidences in the final days of June. Greinke could become this year's Cliff Lee for the Rangers or someone...
The bright spots in the 2012 Milwaukee Brewers season have been few and far between. There's Ryan Braun somehow being better without Prince Fielder or PEDs (joke!), there's George Kottaras' emergence as the premier lothario of Milwaukee, there was Jonathan Lucroy, there's Aoki and then there is... uhh.. hmm... Well, that's about it really. There is almost nothing...
It was a most disappointing loss for the Reds yesterday afternoon at the hands of the Brewers. Homer Bailey didn’t exactly get shelled, but he wasn’t excellent either and he didn’t stick around very long. Zack Greinke for the Brewers was much better, and it showed in the final score of 8-4.
The dreaded west coast trip begins. Without so much as a day off...
Zack Greinke tossed six quality innings in yesterday's 8-4 win over the Reds, but he gave some Brewer fans a scare when he was pinch hit for in the top of the 7th. This had everything to do with there being runners on second and third with no one out and nothing to do with a potential trade, but the amount of scouts in the crowd today was mentioned several times on the broadcast...
Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reported earlier this week that if the Milwaukee Brewers cannot get pitcher Zack Greinke signed to a long-term deal soon then they would trade the talented right hander who can become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.
Rosenthal highlights that the Brewers are currently 7 1/2 games out of first place in the National League Central...
The Milwaukee Brewers, who have yet to have a winning or losing streak of more than four games, might be one good week from getting into serious contention.
They also might be a bad week or two from becoming an active seller before the July 31 non-waiver deadline – and ace right-hander Zack Greinke would not be their only attractive chip.
Two other potential free agents - right...
