Brewers’ Melvin fielding trade offers for Greinke

UNDATED (AP) — After a rough road trip seemingly knocked the Milwaukee Brewers out of contention, general manager Doug Melvin acknowledges that the team is fielding trade inquiries for ace pitcher Zack Greinke.

“I think people know that,” Melvin said Thursday.

Melvin confirmed Greinke’s availability in comments to USA Today and Milwaukee’s WTMJ radio earlier Thursday.

Melvin did not go into detail on how many teams have expressed interest in the 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner, saying only that the trade market always heats up with the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline approaching.
