Sources: Dodgers expressed interest in bringing back Zack Greinke | FOX Sports

How about a story about a team “thinking” about contacting another team about a player?

It’s not going to happen, not yet and maybe not ever. But the Dodgers expressed interest in trading for the Diamondbacks right-hander before Wednesday night’s deadline for players to become eligible for postseason rosters, according to major-league sources.

The discussions were not substantive and did not advance, sources said. The Dodgers, however, could revisit their continuing interest in Greinke this offseason; clearly, they still covet a pitcher who had a 2.30 ERA for them from 2013 to ‘15.

Zack Greinke may not return right after break |

Zack Greinke, who is on the disabled list with a left oblique strain, is still another day or two away from playing catch, so the D-backs right-hander will likely not be ready to return for the team’s first turn through the rotation after the All-Star break.
