Royals trade Zack Greinke to Brewers

July 21, 2010 - Kansas City, Missouri, United States of America - 21 July 2010: Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Zack Greinke.

According to’s Jon Heyman, the Royals have traded starter Zack Greinke and Yuniesky Betancourt to the Brewers in exchange for Lorenzo Cain, Alcides Escobar, pitching prospect Jake Odorizzi and a player to be named later.

Commissioner Bud Selig must approve the trade since the Royals are also sending $2 million to the Brewers to offset the buyout they’d have to pay for Betancourt’s 2012 option, but it looks like it’s a done deal.

None of the prospects in the deal outside of maybe Odorizzi are blue-chippers, so it appears as though Kansas City accepted quantity over quality. They wanted to move Greinke for a couple of middle infielders, which is why the Yankees and Rangers weren’t fits. As accustomed with all trades involving multiple pieces, it’ll be a while before we see which side won this deal.

Of course, it’s a win for Greinke. The Brewers weren’t competitive last year but they weren’t competitive in large part because of their faulty pitching. If the 2009 Cy Young winner can rebound from a rough 2010, he’ll give Milwaukee a nice 1-2 punch along with Yovani Gallardo. Milwaukee is also a perfect low-key place for Greinke, who has dealt with anxiety problems in the past and was reluctant to go to a big city like New York.

Maybe a deal like this could catapult the Brew Crew back into contention next season.

Yankees won’t pursue Zack Greinke – weren’t a fit for the Royals anyway

July 31, 2010 - Kansas City, Missouri, United States of America - 31 July 2010: Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Zack Greinke.

Yankee fans that were hoping Royals’ ace Zack Greinke would be the club’s fallback plan if the Bombers couldn’t sign free agent Cliff Lee are going to be disappointed with latest reports.

According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, even if the Yankees miss out on Lee they won’t attempt to trade for Greinke. Come to your own conclusions as to why, but here’s mine: Despite their usual spending habits, the Yankees are trying to restock their farm system and trading prospects to acquire a risk like Greinke would be counterproductive. The Bombers are also well aware that Greinke has a history of anxiety problems so bringing him to the Big Apple isn’t a prudent move.’s Jayson Stark hears that the Yankees wouldn’t have been a good trade partner for the Royals anyway. Kansas City has a couple of top-tier prospects such as catcher Wil Myers, first baseman Eric Hosmer and third baseman Mike Moustakas. What they want to do now is acquire a young shortstop, second baseman and centerfielder to add to that core and the Yankees can’t meet those needs.

Per Stark’s report, neither can the Rangers. So it appears as though the two teams that would make the most sense for Greinke aren’t fits for the Royals. That leaves the Blue Jays, Nationals and Brewers as three teams that may be able to land the young right-hander assuming he stays on the trade market.

Could Greinke be an option for Yankees if they can’t land Lee?

Apr. 05, 2010 - Kansas City, MISSOURI, UNITED STATES - epa02105037 Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Zack Greinke in the first inning against the Detroit Tigers at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri USA, 5 April 2010.

The bidding war between the Yankees and Rangers over Cliff Lee is about to begin. According to the New York Post, the Rangers are prepared to make an official five-year offer to Lee, but the Yankees are ready to go as high as $23 million annually to secure the lefty’s services.

But for a moment, let’s assume that Lee wants to return to the Rangers. Let’s assume that the millions of dollars that the Rangers are offering are more than enough to by-pass the trillions of dollars that the Yankees are willing to fork over.

What is the Yankees’ fallback plan?

The postseason proved last year that the Bombers need pitching. Who knows what kind of production they’ll get from A.J. Burnett next year and it appears as though Andy Pettitte is set to retire. CC Sabathia and Phil Hughes aren’t going to cut it by themselves.

So what about Zack Greinke? The Royals seem ready to trade the righty in order to restock their farm system and the 27-year-old won the Cy Young two years ago. Up until recently he wasn’t willing to waive his no-trade clause to play for a big-market team (which includes the Yankees, obviously). He’s had anxiety problems in the past and we’ve seen the Big Apple chew up and spit out pitchers like Javier Vazquez and Jeff Weaver before.

But a source told Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports that Greinke is now open to moving to a big-market club. That doesn’t necessarily mean he’s ready to take on New York, but if the Yankees miss out on Lee you can bet they’ll at least pick up the phone and see what it would take to land the right hander. He’s coming off a bad year but he has a 3.82 career ERA and a 1.26 WHIP, not to mention he’s only 27. (Compared to Lee, who is 32.)

The winter meetings get kicked off next week, so it’ll be interesting to see how the Cliff Lee situation plays out. It’ll be even more interesting to see what the Yankees do if Lee decides to return to Texas.

Blue Jays ask about Zack Greinke

June 30, 2010: Starting pitcher Zack Greinke  of the Kansas City Royals delivers a pitch during a game against the Chicago White Sox at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. The Royals won 7-6.

The Royals have let it be known that Zack Greinke is available this winter and the first club that has come knocking on their door (that we know of) is the Blue Jays.

According to Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun, the Jays have inquired about the availability of Greinke, who struggled last year after winning the 2009 AL Cy Young Award.

With Cliff Lee the top free agent on the market, Greinke would appeal to also-rans in the Lee sweepstakes such as the Texas Rangers, Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Angels.

The Royals are looking for two “can’t-miss prospects” as a starting point in talks on the 2009 American League Cy Young award winner.

Greinke’s contract includes a limited no-trade clause through the 2011 season and he has a “no-trade list” that includes big market teams like the Yankees and Red Sox. It’s not known if Toronto is on that list.

The Jays have to do something if they want to compete with the Yankees, Rays and Red Sox in the ultra-competitive AL East. Greinke is coming off a down year but obviously he has the talent. With more help around him, one would think that he would blossom into a consistent performer so we’ll have to see if Toronto can put something together.
