Found July 19, 2012 on PRO Rumors:
The future of right handed pitcher Zack Greinke is still unknown. The Brewers apparently would like to keep him long-term, but according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports, “it doesn't appear there has been much dialogue between the Brewers and representatives for Greinke since spring training.” He says that the team haven't made a formal offer to Greinke yet. This means that Greinke could either walk away in free agency, sign a long-term deal with the team or be dealt before the trade deadline. Morosi adds that Greinke could ask for “as much as $100 million over five years,” but that the Brewers would probably like to see him pitch once or twice before committing so much money in him. Back in April, we talked about the possibility of Grinke signing a Matt Cain's type deal (five-year, $112.5 million deal). The 28-year old right hander is 9-3 with a 3.57 ERA, 0.5 HR/9, 2.2 BB/9 and 9.1 SO/9 in 116.0 innings with the Brewers in 2012. Image by Keith Allison under the Creative ...

Brewers make big offer to Greinke

Zack Greinke is in the final year of his contract with the Brewers, so the team apparently made him a big offer to gauge his interest.

Did Brewers Blow Hurt Trade Return By Starting Zack Greinke 3 Straight Games?

The Milwaukee Brewers started pitcher Zack Greinke in three straight games. Sure, he threw just four pitches on July 7 following a pathetic ejection by a first base umpire, and then tossed 66 pitches the following day before having the luxury of the All-Star break to rest before throwing 97 pitches on July 13. But he still technically started three consecutive games...

Greinke confirms that Brewers offered nine-figure deal

While many folks are focusing on a possible trade of Zack Greinke by the Milwaukee Brewers, the club is trying to find a way to keep the ace right-hander. Greinke on Friday confirmed a report by Jon Heyman of CBSsports.com that the Brewers offered a five-year deal for $100 million or more to keep the pitcher rather than trade him before the July 31 deadline. "I can say Heyman...

What is Zack Greinke Going to Do?

Multiple sources are reporting that the Milwaukee Brewers have made a contract offer to pitcher Zack Greinke in an effort to retain him for future seasons.  Budget, payroll and revenue issues aside, I’ve been in the camp that if you have a starter of Greinke’s caliber, you try your best to keep him.  Even with a record-high payroll around or over $100 million for 2012, the...

Brewers have reportedly offered Zack Greinke a contract worth over $100 million, but he wants to test free agency

If this report by CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman is accurate, the Milwaukee Brewers are doing everything in their power to keep Zack Greinke. But sadly, it may not be enough. According to Heyman, the Brewers have quietly offered a deal in the neighborhood of Matt Cain’s six-years, $127.5 million deal he signed with the Giants in April. Yet, Greinke has yet to sign it. And it seems that...

No resolution -- or contract -- close for Greinke, Brewers

Zack Greinke remains in limbo. Greinke could leave the Milwaukee Brewers as a free agent after this season. He could sign a long-term contract extension with the team. He could be traded before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. At this point, all of those outcomes remain possible. It doesn’t appear there has been much dialogue between the Brewers and representatives for Greinke...

Starting-pitching market shifting fast

Is the trade market for elite starting pitching collapsing? Two weeks ago, it appeared that both Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels and Brewers righty Zack Greinke could be moved before the July 31 non-waiver deadline. As it turns out, neither might be, increasing the demand for the next tier of available starters -- and forcing pitching-hungry teams into scramble mode. Hamels,...

Rumors swirling as trade deadline nears

Major league baseball's non-waiver trade deadline is fast approaching and rumors are swirling surrounding several big-name players. Who will be dealt before 4 p.m. EST on July 31? Fewer teams are expected to be sellers this year because the addition of a second wild-card spot allows more clubs to stay in contention. But there should still be plenty of movement involving teams...
