Contrary to popular belief, Doug Melvin's phone has not been constantly ringing with teams trying to pry away Zack Greinke.

"There's probably more rumors than anything," the Brewers general manager said Thursday while watching his team's informal workout at Miller Park.

"I think, respectfully, general managers don't call when you're eight games out (in the division), six games out of a wild card. They don't call, but they let their interest be known in a different way. Their scouts will talk to our scouts and say, 'We're interested in somebody.'
