Zack Greinke Rumors: Dodgers Favorites; Angels Out?

While the Los Angeles Angels are now viewed as unlikely to re-sign right-hander Zack Greinke this winter, the Los Angeles Dodgers are seen as the frontrunner for the market’s top starter, reports Jim Bowden of ESPN.

After trading Ervin Santana and electing not to exercise Dan Haren’s 2013 option, the Angels basically went all-in for Greinke. They were viewed as the favorite to ink the right-hander entering the offseason, but Danny Knobler of is now reporting that they are unlikely to sign him.

While Greinke seems destined for a record contract, some believe in the six-year, $150 million range, Knobler notes that the Angels just “don’t seem willing to provide that.” Though free agent situations can change quickly, the Angels’ focus has “shifted away from Greinke,” according to Knobler.

Beyond the Angels, the Dodgers, Texas Rangers and Washington Nationals are the teams that have also been tied to Greinke.
