Zack Greinke not talking contract, says there’s “no reason” for him to have an agent

16 Comments

Zack Greinke, who is representing himself after leaving CAA in December, said last month that he was open to discussing a contract extension with the Brewers. However, from his comments at Brewers’ camp today, it doesn’t appear as though a contract is in the front of his mind.

According to Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Greinke said that he has no plans to publicly discuss his contract situation and added that there’s “no reason” for him to have an agent at the moment.

“I’m not even going to talk about that, sorry, because I get annoyed when other people talk about it,” said Greinke, referring to other players. “I already did earlier. It’s the same stuff. Nothing’s changed.”

Greinke, who posted a 3.83 ERA over 28 starts with the Brewers last season, is due to make $13.5 million this season before hitting free agency for the first time. While this winter’s free agent class didn’t feature many top-flight starters, Greinke, Cole Hamels and Matt Cain could all potentially be available next offseason.

Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez blasted a two-run home run off of Red Sox starter David Price in the bottom of the first inning of Tuesday night’s game. It’s his 20th homer of the season, tying a record held by Wally Berger for the fastest to 20 homers, per MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch. Both did so in 51 career games. Berger did so with the Boston Braves in 1930.

Sanchez came into Tuesday’s game hitting a ridiculous .315/.388/.690 with 19 home runs and 40 RBI in 209 plate appearances. He’s a big reason why the Yankees are still in contention for the American League Wild Card despite selling at the trade deadline.
