White Sox don't land Greinke as starter heads to Angels

The Angels have won the Zack Greinke sweepstakes, and if the White Sox are set on adding a starting pitcher before Tuesday's deadline, they'll have to look elsewhere than Milwaukee.

Los Angeles dealt infielder Jean Segura and pitchers Arial Pena and Johnny Hellweg to the Brewers for Greinke, the 2009 AL Cy Young winner. Segura was rated the team's No. 2 prospect prior to the season by Baseball America -- right behind AL MVP candidate Mike Trout -- while Hellweg and Pena were rates as the organization's Nos. 4 and 9 preseason prospects.

That's a pretty good return for Milwaukee, and one the White Sox may not have been able to match without subtracting from the major-league roster. But few discounted the White Sox chances to land Greinke, given Kenny Williams' reputation for creativity when it comes to making a deal.

There were plenty of reports over the last few weeks detailing the White Sox interest in Greinke, which was rumored to be quite high after the All-Star break.

The White Sox could try to pursue another big-name pitcher on the market, but at this point, they may set their sights on a pitcher such as Clayton Richard, who the team reportedly checked in on earlier in the month.
