Found July 16, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
The Milwaukee Brewers announced Zack Greinke won't start Wednesday's game as scheduled but did not offer additional explanation. FOX Sports reported general manager Doug Melvin denied a trade was in the works and said Greinke was "recharging his batteries." Greinke has yielded 14 runs in 14 innings this month. He was scheduled to start Wednesday against the St. Louis Cardinals. He'll be replaced by Tyler Thornburg. Greinke can become a free agent at the end of the season and has reportedly spurned the team's overtures to extend his deal, including an offer similar to the five-year, $100 million contract proposal made to CC Sabathia in 2008. Sabathia left that offseason in free agency, signing an eight-year, $161 million deal with the Yankees. Greinke is coveted by multiple teams. As many as eight teams are thought to have bid for Greinke, including the Texas Rangers, Detroit Tigers and Anaheim Angels.

But he still technically started three consecutive games...
