Milwaukee Brewers general manager Doug Melvin confirmed to USA Today that the Brewers will indeed trade Greinke before the trade deadline. The Brewers are in the midst of a disappointing season and are looking to sell after being swept by both the Cincinnati reds and Philadelphia Phillies. Greinke and the Brewers have not had contract negotiations since Spring Training and he informed the team that he intends to test the free agency waters at the conclusion of this season. "I don't think Zack is about the money personally,'' Melvin said. "You get a young guy that's [28], and in my conversations with him, you get a chance to be a free agent one time. You've got to look at that opportunity." There are concerns that Greinke might not perform well in a big market due to his social anxiety disorder that kept him out most of the 2006 season in Kansas City. He was not shown any signs of relapse or attacks since. "He's been in a small market here. A small market in Kansas City. He's always said he enjoyed it, but he wants to take a look at everything out there.'' Melvin said. Greinke is having a great year so far with a record of 9-3 and an ERA of 3.44. The Atlanta Braves, Chicago White Sox, Boston Red Sox, Texas Rangers, Washington Nationals, and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are all interested in the 28 year old ace. The Brewers are also looking at unloading Aramis Ramirez, Randy Wolf, Corey Hart, Francisco Rodriguez, and George Kottaras, who was just designated for assignment by Milwaukee.
