MLB Trade Deadline: Rays Were 'Kicking The Tires' On Royals P Zack Greinke

Several reports have indicated that the Royals have placed pitcher Zack Greinke on the "untouchables" list telling other teams that he, along with Billy Butler, is not available.

Apparently that didn't stop the Tampa Bay Rays from doing a little investigating.

A bat and the pen are their stated areas of need, but there was a TV report out of Tampa saying they were "kicking the tires'' on Royals ace Zack Greinke. While there are reports Kansas City is willing to listen on anyone, one source said the Royals have told some teams they will keep Greinke, Soria and Billy Butler, which is no surprise.

Two words: Good luck.
