It wasn't that long ago that Zack Greinke was dealt for a nice haul of prospects, going from the Kansas City Royals to the Milwaukee Brewers in a deal that brought Lorenzo Cain and Alcides Escobar along with pitching prospects. Jim Bowden now says that the Brewers might have to do the same and hope for a nice haul of their own given an opportunity to move him at the upcoming MLB trade deadline.
There's still a long time to go between now and the end of June. But the first team to admit defeat and unload a veteran is usually the one who cashes in the most, and the Brewers have a nice live arm for a team to add for the stretch run.
Bowden writes, "The Brewers know they're not going to get the same level package they gave the Royals in exchange for Greinke, but they will at least get two significant prospects and a throw-in. The only teams that legitimately will be bidding for Greinke will be the Toronto Blue Jays, Atlanta Braves, Miami Marlins and maybe the New York Yankees."
