Zack Greinke

  1. Anibal Sanchez takes another licking

    Aug 13, 2012, 11:38 PM EDT

    Anibal Sanchez

    The Tigers struck gold in acquiring Doug Fister from the Mariners last summer. Their big pickup this July, Anibal Sanchez, isn’t working out so well. Sanchez gave up five runs and 12 hits in 5 1/3 innings Monday to take a loss to the Twins. He was hit in the leg by a comebacker in…

  2. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 9, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Jose Reyes

    Marlins 13, Mets 0: Well, that one got out of hand. Chris Young was beaten like a red headed stepchild (can we still say that?), allowing two homers and four RBI to Giancarlo Stanton and a mess of runs to everyone else. Jose Reyes extends his hitting streak to 26 games. Giants 15, Cardinals 0:…

  3. The Nats acquire Cesar Izturis from the Brewers

    Aug 6, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Marwin Gonzalez, Cesar Izturis

    While every other contender in the National League made a move or two, the Nats didn’t do much of anything at the trade deadline. That changed today: The Nats have acquired Cesar Izturis from the Brewers, a source says. Mark DeRosa fighting a groin injury. Nats needed middle infield help. — Adam Kilgore (@AdamKilgoreWP) August…

  4. Shaun Marcum throws 30-pitch simulated game

    Shaun Marcum Getty

    Shaun Marcum threw a 30-pitch simulated game yesterday, reporting no problems after what Mike Still of MLB.com calls “a major step in his recovery from right elbow soreness.” Marcum was shifted from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list last week, which means he’s not even eligible to return until next week. And…

  5. Angels haven’t talked contract extension with Zack Greinke

    Aug 2, 2012, 9:33 AM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    Milwaukee general manager Doug Melvin indicated that Zack Greinke wanted to test the open market as a free agent no matter what, which obviously played a big part in the Brewers trading him. However, now that he’s with the Angels there are already questions about whether Greinke might bypass free agency for a big-money deal.…

  6. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Rangers celebrate

    One person’s thoughts on who made out best and worst at the trade deadline. Winners Texas Rangers: GM Jon Daniels wasn’t interested in parting with third baseman Mike Olt, much less shortstop Jurickson Profar, in order to counter the Angels’ Zack Greinke pickup, but he was able to keep his best prospects and land Ryan…

  7. HBT’s Trade Deadline Tracker

    Jul 31, 2012, 4:35 PM EDT

    Lets make a deal

    The 2012 non-waiver trade deadline has come and gone. Here’s your summary of who went where and for whom: 7/31/12: The Indians Acquire 1B Lars Anderson from the Red Sox for RHP Steven Wright. Quick Take: Anderson is a once-promising slugger who has seemingly run out of gas on his third time through Triple-A. Wright…

  8. Shaun Marcum shifted to 60-day disabled list, won’t return before mid-August

    Jul 30, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Shaun Marcum Getty

    Shaun Marcum has been out since mid-June with an elbow injury and suffered a setback last week, causing the Brewers to transfer him from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day DL. Milwaukee made the move to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for reliever Fautino De Los Santos, who was acquired from Oakland…

  9. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 30, 2012, 6:06 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 6, Phillies 2: Pretty good day for me yesterday. I took Mookie and Carlo to an amusement park and the Braves swept the Phillies. All I needed as a nice steak or something to cap the day and it would have been perfection.  Only the Astros, Rockies and Cubs have a bigger division deficit than the…

  10. Zack Greinke gets no help in losing Angels debut

    Jul 29, 2012, 7:02 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    Without the injured Mike Trout at the top of the lineup, the Angels got nothing going offensively Sunday  and took a 2-0 loss to the Rays in Zack Greinke‘s debut. Greinke, who was acquired from the Brewers on Friday, was strong in striking out eight over seven innings, but Jeremy Hellickson was better, blanking the…

  11. Chris Iannetta activated from disabled list, will catch Zack Greinke’s debut with Angels

    Jul 28, 2012, 8:38 PM EDT

    iannetta getty

    Angels catcher Chris Iannetta hasn’t appeared in a major league game since fracturing his right wrist on May 8. But that will change on Sunday afternoon. According to MLB.com’s Alden Gonzalez, Iannetta has been activated from the disabled list and will start behind the plate in the Angels’ series-finale with the Rays. It’ll also be…

  12. Vernon Wells activated from disabled list

    Jul 28, 2012, 11:15 AM EDT

    Vernon Wells Reuters

    It went largely unnoticed in the excitement of the Zack Greinke deal, but the Angels activated Vernon Wells from the disabled list prior to last night’s game against the Rays. Wells had been out since May 21 after fracturing his right thumb while stealing a base. He went 8-for-26 (.308) with two home runs, a…

  13. Shaun Marcum’s return doesn’t sound imminent

    Jul 27, 2012, 9:30 PM EDT

    Shaun Marcum Getty

    The Brewers just unloaded Zack Greinke for prospects, but they won’t have the chance to do the same with Shaun Marcum. Marcum is still trying to make it back from a right elbow injury which has kept him on the shelf since mid-June. He made it through a bullpen session earlier this week with no…

  14. For better or worse, Angels get their man

    Jul 27, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke, Sam Holbrook

    Already playing plenty well without him, the Angels will now be called World Series favorites after acquiring Zack Greinke from the Brewers on Friday night. In truth, though, they may not be any better than they were yesterday. In Greinke, the Angels are getting a pitcher with No. 1 starter stuff. He was the AL’s…

  15. Angels acquire Zack Greinke from the Brewers

    Jul 27, 2012, 7:42 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v San Francisco Giants

    UPDATE: Morosi confirms that it’s Greinke for Segura, Hellweg and Pena. By the way, Segura, Hellweg and Pena were ranked as Angels’ second, fourth and ninth best prospects by Baseball America coming into the season. 7:38 PM Nothing official yet, but Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register writes that prospect right-handers Ariel Pena and…

  16. Trade rumors ain’t what they used to be

    Jul 27, 2012, 5:06 PM EDT

    Rumors Timex Social Club

    Maybe it’s the Olympics. Maybe it’s something else. I have no idea, but it seems like we are way less awash in crazy, tenuous speculation, mystery teams, tire-kicking and this or that scoop writer “hearing this” or that.  To the extent there have been trade rumors, they’ve been pretty straight forward things like “a lot…

  17. Davey Johnson thinks Brewers will trade Zack Greinke before Sunday matchup with Nationals

    Jul 27, 2012, 1:16 PM EDT

    greinke getty

    Zack Greinke is scheduled to make his final pre-trade deadline start Sunday versus Washington, but Nationals manager Davey Johnson doesn’t expect to actually face him. Johnson told Adam McCalvy of MLB.com that he’d “be real surprised” if Greinke is still on the Brewers by then, speculating that “if the ball club’s intent on making a…

  18. Angels, Orioles in mix for Francisco Liriano

    Jul 26, 2012, 6:15 PM EDT

    Francisco Liriano

    A source told FOXSports.com’s Jon Morosi that the Angels and Orioles are continuing to pursue Twins left-hander Francisco Liriano in advance of next week’s trade deadline. Liriano appears about as likely to be dealt as any pitcher in the league right now. Since his inconsistency won’t stop him from receiving significant bids in free agency,…

  19. Brewers GM admits Zack Greinke will definitely be traded

    Jul 26, 2012, 1:50 PM EDT

    greinke getty

    Brewers general manager Doug Melvin has dropped some very strong hints that he’ll be trading Zack Greinke before Tuesday’s deadline, but now he’s left zero doubt. Bob Nightengale of USA Today spoke to Melvin today and reports that he “will definitely be traded.” Melvin said previously that the Brewers would deal Greinke if they couldn’t…

  20. Zack Greinke: “I don’t really look forward to being traded”

    Jul 25, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Zack Greinke AP

    Milwaukee skipping Zack Greinke‘s turn in the rotation last week so he could “recharge his batteries” worked out pretty well, as Greinke returned last night with seven innings of one-run ball in what may be his final Brewers start. Afterward he declined to discuss the specifics of any contract extension talks, although he did apologize…

  23. Zack Greinke confirms that the Brewers have made him an offer

    Jul 20, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke Getty

    Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reported earlier today that the Brewers offered Zack Greinke a five-year, $100-plus million contract extension sometime within the past few weeks. Greinke didn’t deny it when asked by Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel before tonight’s game. “I can say Heyman is pretty accurate with what he’s saying, but nothing else,”…

  24. The Brewers offered Zack Greinke $100 million+, but he’s not signing

    Jul 20, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    Two days ago we heard a Jon Paul Morosi report that the Brewers and Zack Greinke have had no dialogue about a contract extension. Jon Heyman says that isn’t so: The Brewers offered star righthanded pitcher Zack Greinke a $100-million-plus, five-year deal sometime within the past few weeks, but there’s nothing yet to indicate he will sign quickly and…

    FOX Sports’ Jon Paul Morosi provides the scoop: It doesn’t appear there has been much dialogue between the Brewers and representatives for Zack Greinke since spring training. As of Wednesday afternoon, there was no evidence that the team had made the 28-year-old a formal offer. And there isn’t much time left before the deadline for…
