Kansas City Royals ace Zack Greinke(notes) may be one of the best pitchers available this offseason, but the New York Yankees aren't going after him, even though they lost out in the battle for Cliff Lee(notes), according to the New York Post.
The Royals have Greinke on the trading block and the word is that K.C. doesn't like the players available from the Yankees' side of the trading table.
Kansas City isn't definitively going to trade Greinke, MLB.com points out, but if it did, it would want "Major League-ready up-the-middle position players" in return, the site reports.
