Rumor: Greinke Traded.

Rumor on Twitter: Royals trade Greinke to Milwaukee for RHP Jake Odorizzi and Jeremy Jeffress, shortstop Alcides Escobar and Centerfielder Lorenzo Cain. More to come.

The only source I can find is this Brewers blog on the Milwaukee, Wisconsin Journal Sentinal:

Many are questioning the report, and Rotoworld expects denials to come forward soon. The fact that top baseball people haven't picked up on the rumor tells me this is either far from completed or it is a total fabrication.

My gut tells me right now that this deal probably has some truth to it about what the two teams are discussing, but I don't think it is a done deal. I do believe that this could be the start of a a swell of rumors that could end with Greinke being dealt within the new few days and maybe even the next 24 hours.

Update: Trade is now also being reported here:

  1. Knowing how dumb I am I would love to acquire the overrated Escobar, a druggie, and a couple of throw-ins.
