Zack Greinke Trade Rumors: Angels, Rangers Interested

Perhaps the most-pursued starting pitcher on the market prior to the trade deadline will be Zack Greinke of the Milwaukee Brewers. It is no secret that the Brewers are shopping him around and he has already attracted interest from a number of different contending teams looking for a boost to their rotation that may put them over the top.

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, although the Atlanta Braves and Baltimore Orioles are in the mix, the strongest and most realistic interest is coming from a pair of American Legue West rivals: the Los Angeles Angels and the Texas Rangers.

The Braves have been seen as a team that makes sense for Greinke. But the Angels are also noted by a person close to Greinke as "a perfect fit."

The Rangers, who have the most chips to deal, also have interest in star lefthander Cole Hamels as a trade target, and actually may prefer Hamels.

If the Rangers end up picking up Hamels and the Angels nab Greinke, the two-horse race in the AL West will get significantly more intense.
