Milwaukee Reports: Zack Greinke To Brewers

Multiple reports out of Milwaukee Saturday night have a Zack Greinke deal centered around Alcides Escobar and a package of prospects completed and awaiting announcement.

Jim Breen first reported a deal involving Alcides Escobar, Jeremy Jeffress and Lorenzo Cain.

I had been told that the Milwaukee Brewers were originally informed that they had “no chance” of landing Greinke during the Winter Meetings, but that could have changed significantly once Greinke went public with his demands to leave the Royals.

The deal is expected to be announced on Monday.

Andrew Wagner updates that Jake Odorizzi was also included in the deal.

If the reports are true, the Rangers have missed out on a second high profile starting pitching target to a late surfacing suitor. Escobar fits a Royals need as a high end defensive short stop, and Odorizzi is a quality pitching prospect, rivaling anyone in the Texas organization outside of Martin Perez. While Cain may be less of a sure hole-filler in center field, he matches a second positional need of the Royals. Jeffress is the sort of hard throwing reliever that could eventually close games for the Royals.
