Will Zach Greinke get traded?
Melvin says Brewers probably will be sellers
Zack Greinke will start for the Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday night, but don’t be surprised if there’s a long line of suitors to try to get him in a trade right after that.
Brewers general manager Doug Melvin was in Madison Monday night to speak to the Northwoods League all-star banquet.
He said this weekend’s sweep at Cincinnati will probably make the team sellers at the trade deadline.
MADISON, Wis. —
“Yeah, we probably have to look at where we’re at and the teams we’re chasing at this point,” said Melvin. “It’s a little different than last year and this week will be a busy week prior to the deadline.
“There’s already been a number of trades today in the major leagues, so we prepare ourselves, obviously, to make the deal if we can make a deal if it’s in the best interest of the club for the future,” said Melvin.
The Brewers are 44-51, 11 ½ games behind first place Cincinnati following Monday night’s loss.
