With free agency one year away Zack Greinke has left his agent for … no one

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports that Zack Greinke left his representatives at CAA and is currently without an agent.

Greinke has one season left on his contract and will hit the open market next offseason ready to cash in for a huge deal, so every agent in the business would love to nab him as a client.

He’s currently on a four-year, $38 million extension signed with the Royals in January of 2009 and as a rare under-30 star free agent the former Cy Young winner could be in line for a deal in excess of $100 million next winter.

At no point did the Brewers seem legitimately in the mix to re-sign Prince Fielder, so it’ll be interesting to see if they make a stronger effort to retain Greinke long term. He went 16-6 with a 3.83 ERA and 201 strikeouts in 172 innings for Milwaukee after coming over with Yuniesky Betancourt in a blockbuster trade for Jake Odorizzi, Lorenzo Cain, Alcides Escobar, and Jeremy Jeffress.
