The Milwaukee Brewers are still trying to keep right hander Zack Greinke long-term, and according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports, the team submitted a “$100-million-plus, five-year deal” to him. But Heyman says that “there's nothing yet to indicate he will sign quickly and give up free agency.”
During the past few weeks, there have been countless rumors surrounding the 28-year old Greinke and he has been linked with teams like the Braves, White Sox, Angels, Rangers and Orioles, among others. Even the Royals said they would like to bring him back as a free agent.
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.
