The Brewers have scratched Zack Greinke from his scheduled start against St. Louis on Wednesday but before folks start getting worked up that a trade is being consummated, the word from general manager Doug Melvin is that they simply want to give Greinke added rest after he pitched three times in a seven-day span, coming in and out of the all-star break.

Greinke has no injury; apparently he just was fatigued from the recent work load.The word from the Brewers is that manager Ron Roenicke will give the details at the ballpark later today. I have a message into GM Doug Melvin but haven't heard back, but he did tell FOX Sports, Ken Rosenthal that Greinke just is "recharging his batteries."

Greinke started the Saturday before the break but we ejected after four pitches in Houston, so he started the next day. He went three innings in that game, struggling in the first inning and throwing 66 pitches overall.
