According to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun, the Baltimore Orioles are in pursuit of Brewers ace Zack Greinke. Connolly reports that the Orioles are currently rumored to be Greinke's "most aggressive suitor.

Greinke, 28, is earning $13.5M this season, and is set to hit free agency this winter. The right-hander has a 136 ERA+ in 108 innings thus far.

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN echoes Connolly's reports, adding that southpaw Brian Matusz could potentially be a trade chip for Baltimore.

The Orioles are not willing to trade Dylan Bundy or Manny Machado in a deal to acquire Greinke, so Matusz would seem to make a lot of sense in trade talks.
