The Kansas City Royals have yet to confirm the widely reported trade that will send Zack Greinke to the Milwaukee Brewers. The deal came out of nowhere originally started on a blog on the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, who scooped all the national guys with the news. The blog reported that an official announcement would be coming Monday and Jon Heyman of SI.com says that has been moved up to Sunday afternoon.

The reported deals of the trade:
In the deal, the Royals are reportedly acquiring Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain, shortstop Alcides Escobar and pitching prospects Jake Odorizzi and Jeremy Jeffress for the 27-year-old Greinke, 10-14 with a 4.17 ERA in 2010 after winning the 2009 Cy Young.
It's all so surreal. I expected a Greinke trade but maybe not this quickly. Check out Royals Review for reaction to the trade.
