Zack Greinke is on his way out of Milwaukee.
Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said Thursday the starting pitcher will be traded before Tuesday's 4 p.m. ET deadline, according to USA Today.
"There are so many good things about him, it's going to be difficult when we trade him."
There have been no formal contract talks between the Brewers and Greinke's agent, Casey Close, since the start of the regular season, Melvin told the paper. Melvin said the Brewers had been told Greinke would test free agency.
Greinke, 28, has a 3.44 ERA and a 9-3 record this season.
