New Brewer Greinke Enjoying His New Surroundings


PHOENIX (AP) -- Zack Greinke is with a new team for the first time in his career, and he's expecting to have more fun because the Milwaukee Brewers should win more than the Royals did.

The 27-year-old former AL Cy Young winner was Milwaukee's biggest offseason acquisition when the Brewers dealt two prospects and two major league-ready players to acquire the right-hander who nearly left the game because of social anxiety disorder in 2006.

Greinke said Tuesday in his first talk with reporters that he's reclusive at times with fans and the media because he feels like he needs to stay focused on pitching.

Greinke says he feels good physically and likes being in camp, but confirmed that he's increased his medication this offseason and he's more fatigued because of it.
