Melvin saying Greinke will be traded
Brewers general manager Doug Melvin told national writer Bob Nightengale that pitcher Zack Greinke will be traded before the July 31 Deadline.
The Rangers are seriously pursuing him. Here is an interesting quote that Melvin gave Nightengale.
“If you’re in a pennant race,” Melvin said, “this guy is a difference maker. He can go deep into games. He’s never been on the DL except for a basketball injury [breaking a rib in February 2011]. He’s very athletic. And he’s great in the clubhouse.”
The Rangers are looking for that “difference maker.”
The competition will be fierce.
