Zack Greinke Trade Down To Basketball Injuries And Bug Bites

We noted that former Kansas City Royals pitcher Zack Greinke was injured while playing in a basketball game, an injury that will cause him to miss as many as three starts.

That made me think of a report on Alcides Escobar the other day. Escobar, who was traded to the Royals in the Greinke deal, has some sort of bug bite infection. Manager Ned Yost said he "scratched it and now he's got red streaks and it's swollen and warm."

So the Greinke trade is boiling down to...basketball injuries and bug bites.

Maybe no one won the trade.
