Brewers Will Keep Discussing Greinke Extension

Apr 07, 2012 3:47 PM EST

The Brewers will continue discussing a potential contract extension with Zack Greinke throughout the season.

A number of clubs prefer to table talks once Opening Day arrives.

"I talked to his agent yesterday; we'll talk again on Monday," general manager Doug Melvin said. "There's no timeline on it. I think we have to get away from the idea that there's a deadline on opening day.

"Sometimes players say they want to focus on the season and that's fine. I respect that. But that doesn't mean the GM and the agent won't talk behind the scenes. We want him to go out and have a big year."

Milwaukee worked out a five-year, $105 million extension last April with left-fielder Ryan Braun.
