Zack Greinke Trade Rumors: Brewers Interested In Martin Perez, Justin Grimm

Another day, and we have more Zack Greinke trade rumors.

With the Brewers fading fast, and it's not like they were ever really in it this year, it's increasingly likely that the Brewers will blow up their active roster and cash in players such as Greinke for prospects.

Texas' interest in Greinke has been no secret, either. Apparently, the Brewers have some interest in some Texas prospects as well. Obviously, Milwaukee would love Jurickson Profar -- but as I've said time and time again, echoed by Ron Washington, Profar is simply not available.

Per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

Third baseman Mike Olt is another coveted prospect, but the Brewers have a three-year commitment to Ramirez, who would have to be moved to make room. The Brewers would be very interested in obtaining left-hander Martin Perez, the Rangers' top pitching prospect, and also have scouted right-hander Justin Grimm.

If Jon Daniels can acquire Greinke without surrendering Olt, then he should be on the telephone right now with the Brewers, ironing out the details. Greinke is one of the best pitchers in baseball, and the Rangers could save Olt for a package to acquire Justin Upton, either now or over the winter.
