The Angels pitcher is said to be aiming to cash in on a huge payday that might deter the Angels from attempting to re-sign him.
But over the weekend, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported that Greinke is expected to go after a deal that potentially could be worth close to $150 million. That number might be a bit too high for the Angels' taste.
And the Angels, who still don't have a No. 3 starter behind Jered Weaver and C.J. Wilson?
"It won't be Greinke," said one person familiar with their plans.
Greinke started 13 games for the Angels last year, going 6-2 with a 3.53 ERA and 78 strikeouts in 89.1 innings pitched. He also posted the third-lowest WHIP of his career at 1.187.
