The Angels have won the Zack Greinke derby. Angels rookie Jean Segura was just pulled off the field, where he was stretching before tonight's game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Angel Stadium. Segura is headed to the Milwaukee Brewers, along with double-A pitchers Johnny Hellweg and Areal Pena two minor-league pitchers, for the pitcher who was considered the crown jewel of the trade market. Greinke, the American League Cy Young Award winner in 2009, had a 9-3 record and a 3.44 earned-run average for the Brewers.

While most fans are focused on teams still in the playoff chase, fantasy owners understand the benefit of trolling the rosters of the also-rans. Staff writer Tim Hubbard looks at some newer talent currently on display in the MLB's outposts. Scooter Gennett 2B | Milwaukee Amid the Ryan Braun turmoil and disappointing 59-75 record before Saturday, Milwaukee is having a season to forget. But all is not blue with the Brew Crew, as the emergence of Gennett and shortstop Jean Segura could give them a strong middle infield for years to come.

Staff writer Tim Hubbard looks at the two veteran pitchers who have arguably had the most impact on their new teams. Zack Greinke SP | Dodgers Greinke's season got off to a rough start when he suffered a broken collarbone in his second start during an altercation with San Diego's Carlos Quentin. Since his return in mid-May, Greinke (11-3, 3.02 earned-run average) has been the top-flight starter they had been craving. On the flip side, Greinke's signing has had the opposite effect on the Angels, who desperately wanted to re-sign the right-hander after trading for him last year.

The July 31 non-waiver trade deadline is 3 1/2 weeks away, and a lot can change before then, but Angels General Manager Jerry Dipoto did not sound Sunday like a guy who would be very aggressive in his attempts to upgrade a team that has underachieved for much of the season. “This is our team,” said Dipoto, who made a bold move last July, acquiring pitcher Zack Greinke from Milwaukee for three prospects, including shortstop Jean Segura, who on Sunday was named to the National League All-Star team.

Designated hitter Kendrys Morales is scheduled to play with the Angels on Tuesday against the Kansas City Royals, Angels Manager Mike Scioscia said Sunday. It will be Morales' first time in a major league lineup since he fractured his left ankle May 29, 2010, while jumping on home plate in celebration of a game-winning home run. Scioscia is aiming for Morales -- who took a rainy Sunday off after playing in minor-league games Friday and Saturday -- to get 40 to 50 spring at-bats before the Angels' April 6 season opener.

Unable to send Clayton Kershaw to the mound for a second consecutive night, the Dodgers went back to being the Dodgers on Tuesday. With Zack Greinke giving up five runs in four-plus innings, the Dodgers had no chance against the Milwaukee Brewers, as their inept offense converted 10 hits and five walks into only two runs. The 5-2 defeat at Miller Park felt like many of the last-place Dodgers' 25 previous defeats, as they were three for 14 with runners in scoring position. They had men on first and second with none out in the second inning and didn't score.

Mark Trumbo didn't have long to think about the first ball hit to him at third base this spring, and that was probably a good thing. Trumbo, forced off first base by the signing of Albert Pujols, made a diving grab of Joaquin Arias' line drive to his left for the final out of the second inning, one of the highlights of the Angels' 9-5 exhibition victory over the San Francisco Giants in Tempe Diablo Stadium. "They don't call it the hot corner for nothing," Trumbo said.

Reporting from Seattle — Center fielder Peter Bourjos hopes to be playing baseball in Southern California deep into October. But when the Angels' season does end, he said, he'll take a short break before heading to Latin America to continue playing in the Dominican Republic or Venezuela. It's common for young players to play winter ball, allowing them to refine parts of their game in a competitive atmosphere. Rare, however, is the established, U.S.-born player who gives up part of his off-season.

Writers from around Tribune Co. discuss how 2011 National League MVP Ryan Braun might perform next season after returning from his suspension for violating baseball's drug policy. Feel free to join the conversation by leaving a comment of your own. Bill Shaikin, Los Angeles Times It's a tough question, because Braun accepted his suspension in part because MLB agreed not to disclose the evidence. Logic would say Braun would not have used performance-enhancing substances last season, after he had come so close to a suspension then.

It never hurts to have Miguel Cabrera on your fantasy team, but championships are usually won by owners who are the beneficiaries of breakout seasons by unexpected sources. As the league returns from the All-Star break, staff writer Tim Hubbard chooses most-valuable-player and Cy Young Award winners from each league based on their first-half performances in relation to their pre-season projections by the fantasy experts at MLB.com. American League MVP Chris Davis | 1B | Baltimore Davis may end up battling Cabrera for the real MVP award, but for fantasy value, Davis gets the nod. Though ranked in the preseason by mlb.com as the 19th best first baseman, Davis' 37 home runs and 93 runs batted in have surpassed his predicted output.

With the shortstop position being an offensive wasteland for many fantasy teams, Times staff writer Tim Hubbard identifies three players who could provide some help: Jean Segura SS | Milwaukee The young Dominican has had no problem handling major league pitching, hitting .359 through Friday, second among all shortstops. Segura, who had a 50-steal season in the low minors, has stolen seven bases and should score plenty of runs hitting in front of Ryan Braun. Jed Lowrie SS | Oakland Staying on the field had been Lowrie's biggest issue in his first five years in the majors; he has never stayed healthy enough to log 400 at-bats in any season.

Apparently word travels slowly around the National League. Or maybe teams just aren't reading their memos. Either way, this much is certain: the Dodgers' Adrian Gonzalez is feasting on left-handed pitching. And no one seems to be getting the message. The latest example came Friday when Gonzalez's two-run, two-out double in the seventh inning lifted the Dodgers a 7-5 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers before a crowd of 44,930 at Dodger Stadium. BOX SCORE: Dodgers 7, Brewers 5 But if having a left-hander pitch to Gonzalez with the game on the line might not be wise, Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said he's not surprised teams are still doing it. “It's kind of hard to get away from the book,” Mattingly said.

Worst week ever The Angels lost ace Jered Weaver, shortstop Erick Aybar and third baseman Alberto Callaspo to injury last week, bad news for any team but worse for this one, top-heavy with stars and hardly any depth. The Angels have started 2-8 once before - as an expansion team. They might have had a backup shortstop in Jean Segura, but they included him in last year's trade for pitcher Zack Greinke. Segura leads the National League with a .429 batting average, through Friday.
