Amid trade rumors, Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Zack Greinke will return to the team's rotation next Tuesday against the Philadelphia Phillies, reports.

Greinke said earlier in the week that he needed to recharge his batteries when the Brewers scratched his start scheduled for today. Greinke also said he is not injured and just needed time off.

Greinke's name has been mentioned in possible trade rumors for a couple of weeks, and that start could be his last in a Brewers uniform. Greinke, the 2009 AL Cy Young winner, is 9-3 with 3.57 ERA in 20 starts this season.
