At least not this season. As Todd Rosiak, and Tom Haudricourt <a href="Whether an offer has been made or not, Melvin did not sound optimistic that Greinke would stay off the free-agent market this winter. "There's talk about Cole Hamels signing in Philadelphia," said Melvin. "If he does, he will be one of the few young players to get this close (to free agency) and do so. "Zack falls in that category, too. Once young players get this close to free agency, they usually test the market. It only happens a few times (that they don't)."" target="_blank">report, Brewers General Manager Doug Melvin has been quiet about whether or not Jon Heyman’s report about the $100 million offer to Greinke was true.

Both Greinke and Brewers general manager Doug Melvin have remained mum on the subject of an extension. With the trading deadline coming up on July 31, Melvin has less than two weeks to decide whether to keep Greinke or try to move him.

While Melvin also has said he doesn’t see Greinke signing an extension with the Brewers.

Whether an offer has been made or not, Melvin did not sound optimistic that Greinke would stay off the free-agent market this winter.

“There’s talk about Cole Hamels signing in Philadelphia,” said Melvin. “If he does, he will be one of the few young players to get this close (to free agency) and do so.

“Zack falls in that category, too. Once young players get this close to free agency, they usually test the market. It only happens a few times (that they don’t).”

That is true. The Brewers have a special pitcher in the past that they couldn’t resign during the season, and lost him to free agency. That was CC Sabathia. Maybe they’ll learn from their mistakes, and trade Greinke so they can get something in return. If not they’re going to have to give Greinke a large contract with a lot of teams looking for pitching help.
