Rumor: Yankees scouting Zack Greinke

The Yankees say they would prefer to stay within the organization for CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte‘s replacements, but that won’t stop them from keeping tabs on the trade market just in case.

On that note, Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports reports that the Yankees had scouts watching Brewers starter Zack Greinke‘s last outing.

The Yankees actually had a chance to trade for Greinke back in 2010 and passed on him fearing that he might not be suited to pitch in the Bronx. So it seems unlikely they would be much more interested today, but perhaps their opinion of him changed. Or perhaps it could change if the right offer came along.

Either way, the Yankees are scouting Greinke, just like they will be scouting most of the available starting pitchers, so that way if they do decide to enter the trade market they can enter with as much information as possible.
