Greinke Traded To Brewers

facebooktwitterreddit is reporting that Zack Greinke has been traded to the Brewers, confirming the whirlwind acceleration of the breakup in Kansas City.

In return for Greinke, Yuniesky Betancourt and $2 million, Kansas City is receiving outfielder Lorenzo Cain, shortstop Alcides Escobar, pitching prospects Jake Odorizzi and a player to be named later. The deal is pending physicals and the commissioner’s approval. The entire article can be read here.

There was no mention of any contract extension being part of the deal, which likely influenced the mix of players and money going in both directions. Given Greinke’s supposed issues in K.C., it’ll be interesting to hear his take/spin on the trade.
