Zack Greinke Trade: Angels Nab Brewers' Ace

There were four teams reportedly making serious runs for Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Zack Greinke, with other teams on the fringes of the discussion. The early reports, though, suggest the Los Angeles Angels have won the sweepstakes:

Jean Segura entered the 2012 season as the #55 prospect in baseball according to Baseball America. The 22-year-old shortstop is currently hitting .294/.346/.404 in Double-A.

Greinke will join an Angels rotation that already includes C.J. Wilson and Jered Weaver. Dan Haren would be the fourth starter, which is kind of gaudy if he reverts to form. Jerome Williams, Garrett Richards, and Ervin Santana have all made starts for the Angels over the past ten days, and two of them will likely be back in the bullpen.

According to T.R. Sullivan, the Rangers had a chance to acquire Greinke, but they were unwilling to part with third-base prospect Mike Olt.
