The Texas Rangers have reportedly reached out to the Arizona Diamondbacks to discuss a possible trade for starting pitcher Zack Greinke. On Tuesday, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reported the sides are talking during the MLB winter meetings in Orlando, Florida, but noted no deal is imminent. Greinke is coming off a strong 2017 campaign in which he posted a 3.20 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 215 strikeouts in 202.1 innings. His resurgence following an up-and-down 2016 season (4.37 ERA) was a key reason Arizona earned a wild-card berth. The 34-year-old Orlando native compiled a microscopic 1.66 ERA with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2015 and won the American League Cy Young Award while with the Kansas City Royals in 2009. While the winter meetings are a popular place to toss around ideas, seeing Greinke's name pop up in the rumor mill was a bit of a surprise. Along with his spot atop the Arizona rotation, he's got four seasons left on a monster six-year, $206.5 million contract.
