Dodgers flash cash

 

Free-agent pitcher Zack Greinke and the Los Angeles Dodgers tried to close a deal Saturday night worth $147 million over six years. Greinke is the top arm on the open market, and has attracted interest from the Dodgers, Texas and the Los Angeles Angels. The 29-year-old righty started last season with Milwaukee and was later traded to the Angels, going a combined 15-5 with a 3.48 ERA. The 2009 A.L. Cy Young winner with Kansas City would be the latest high-priced player to be acquired by the Dodgers. They traded for 1B Adrian Gonzalez, SS Hanley Ramirez, P Josh Beckett and OF Carl Crawford late last season. With the Dodgers, Greinke would pair with 2011 N.L. Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw for a formidable top of the rotation. – AP
