Quick Hits: Greinke, Nats, Indians, Liriano, Dodgers

Recently it was reported that Zack Greinke received an extension offer from the Brewers in the neighborhood of $100MM and today the pitcher told Tom Haudricourt of the Journal-Sentinel and Adam McCalvy of MLB.com that the figure is "pretty accurate".  However, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com says that there's no indication that Greinke will sign quickly.  More from around baseball as Friday turns into Saturday..

  • The Nationals planned on designating Xavier Nady for assignment if they came through tonight's game healthy, but so far there hasn't been an announcement, tweets Amanda Comak of the Washington Times.
  • Nationals manager Davey Johnson doesn't think that the club needs to make a blockbuster move before the deadline, writes Dan Kolko of MASNsports.com.  "I have gone into that area with general managers, saying, 'I need so-and-so,' or this, that and the other," Johnson said. "But I like what we have here. I don't see any emergency move needed."
  • As the Indians look to bolster their pitching rotation, Francisco Liriano of the Twins is a name to keep an eye on, says Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports (video link).
  • Dodgers pitcher Ted Lilly gave a solid endorsement of Cubs hurler Ryan Dempster, who is said to be a target for Los Angeles, writes Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times.  In addition to the Dodgers, there are six to eight other teams reportedly in on Dempster.
