Los Angeles Angels Acquire Zack Greinke From Milwaukee Brewers

Texas' competition in the American League West just got a little more stiff -- or at least, it's about to. According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Angels are on the verge of acquiring Milwaukee Brewers ace Zack Greinke.

Per Rosenthal, the deal is all but done.

Segura, as a 22 year old, is hitting .294/.346/.404, with seven home runs and 33 steals. Since Mike Trout has left their farm system, Segura is almost certainly Los Angeles' top prospect.

Los Angeles' rotation now boasts Jered Weaver, Greinke, Dan Haren, C.J. Wilson and Ervin Santana -- assuming the club keeps Santana in the rotation. Greinke will certainly provide a boost to Los Angeles' playoff chances.

Greinke was believed to be on Texas' radar, but a USA Today report surfaced earlier on Friday that the Rangers were heavy in talks to acquire Josh Johnson from the Miami Marlins.
