The Milwaukee Brewers tried their best to keep their star pitcher from testing the free agent waters, but all signs point to Zack Greinke seeing what his market value is.

According to a report by CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman, the Brewers offered Greinke a five-year deal worth more than $100 million earlier this month. The pitcher turned it down and is expected to hit the free-agent market.

The 2009 AL Cy Young award winner is 9-3 this season with a 3.57 ERA for the Brewers, who acquired him last season from the Kansas City Royals.

Heyman reports that the Braves, White Sox, Angels, Rangers, Orioles and others will be interested in Greinke come free agency.
