Zack Greinke Trade Rumors Swirl As Blue Jays Make Push

The 27-year-old Zack Greinke is under contract for another two seasons, and the Royals have no need to send their ace away. But in a thin pitching market, the Greinke rumors are blowing all around, and the latest team to get involved is the Blue Jays.

The Jays, it seems, feel they're one major piece away from being able to contend in the AL East next season, and Greinke fits the mold. He would not come cheaply, and a return package could include top youngsters Kyle Drabek and Travis Snider, but talents like Greinke don't come around very often, and behind Cliff Lee, he's the best pitcher on the market.

The Rangers have shown a lot of interest in Greinke as well, and could step up their pursuit no matter what happens with Lee. They could get Greinke as a Lee substitute, or they could get Greinke to join Lee at the front of a dominant rotation. Other teams to express interest to Royals GM Dayton Moore include the Twins, Braves, Reds, Mariners, and Nationals, but those talks aren't very far along.
