Zack Greinke rumors: Angels, Rangers, Dodgers

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

While some consider the Dodgers the favorite to sign Zack Greinke, the Rangers, Angels and Nationals are still being tied to the free agent.

After meeting with the Los Angeles Dodgers, free agent right-hander Zack Greinke will visit with the Los Angeles Angels, reports Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles:

Greinke met with the Dodgers, who are reportedly considered the favorite to sign the free agent, yesterday. Los Angeles views Greinke as "critical to a pitching staff that already has left-hander Clayton Kershaw," reports Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports.

Brown adds that the Texas Rangers and Washington Nationals have also been tied to Greinke this offseason. While he says it may be obvious, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com notes that the Rangers can only afford to sign one of Greinke or fellow free agent Josh Hamilton this winter.

The Angels acquired right-hander Tommy Hanson from the Atlanta Braves earlier today. However, this acquisition will reportedly not stop the team from pursuing Greinke. Regardless, the addition of Hanson will ease the pain if the team is unable to also acquire Greinke.

There are several interesting storylines developing around Greinke’s suitors. The Angels and Dodgers are both in LA, while the Rangers and Angels are division rivals.
