In addition to the Texas Rangers, the New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies inquired about right-handedArizona Diamondbacks pitcher Zack Greinke, a league source tells FanRag Sports. After signing two relievers – Tommy Hunter and Pat Neshek – Philadelphia appears to be looking for an upgrade in the rotation. Given that they have little-to-no money on the books in future seasons, they make sense as a possible Greinke suitor, but a match is highly unlikely. Talks were “over quickly,” the source said. In discussions with New York, the Yankees also asked about infielder Brandon Drury, league sources say. The likelihood of a Drury-to-Yankees deal is unknown, but Greinke is unlikely to end up in the Bronx. Barring a late change, “he won’t go there.” Teams asked about Greinke hoping that with his large contract, the Diamondbacks would give him up for cheap. However, that hasn’t been the case. Arizona is looking for value in return for the veteran and appears unlikely to deal him at all.
