Blue Jays, Nationals Battle for Zack Greinke

With all the talk that surrounds the chase of Cliff Lee between the Texas Rangers and New York Yankees, there's another pitcher that teams are battling for.

According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, the Toronto Blue Jays and Washington Nationals are apparently the favorites to land Kansas City Royals' pitcher Zack Greinke.

There had been talk that whoever lost the Cliff Lee sweepstakes would turn their attention to Greinke, but Royals general manager Dayton Moore says he's looked at the market for Greinke and has determined that neither the Yankees nor the Rangers are at the top of the list.

Crasnick also mentions the Milwaukee Brewers as a team that's interested but they don't seem to have the prospects to get a deal done with Kansas City.
