New, comments

The Royals are expected to shop starting pitcher Zack Greinke this offseason, according to Newsday. Greinke, who is under contract through the 2012 season, is 9-12 this season in 30 starts.

Greinke, the 2009 Cy Young recipient, would be a very dangerous pitcher on a winning ball club. The Royals are still several years away from being competitive and could move Greinke while his value is fairly high for a handful of promising prospects.

Several teams, including the Yankees, Angels, and Brewers, have showed interest in the past in the right-handed ace.

In all likelihood, the Royals will hold on to Greinke this offseason and start shopping him next season.
