Zack Greinke Close To Picking Agent

Brewers right-hander Zack Greinke continues to interview agents for representation and is expected to make a decision this week prior to Opening Day, a source tells Jim Bowden of ESPN (via Twitter).  Casey Close of Excel Sports Management appears to be the frontrunner, according to Bowden (Twitter link). 

Greinke has been operating without an agent since leaving CAA last spring.  The 28-year-old figures to be one of the top free agent starters following this season and says that he is open to signing an extension with Milwaukee.  Earlier this month, Greinke indicated that he wouldn't look to hire an agent until after the 2012 season.
