The Arizona Diamondbacks are reportedly shopping Zack Greinke, but the veteran right-hander's no-trade provision could pose a problem for more than half of the club's potential trade partners.

Included in the 15 teams on Greinke's no-trade list are the Baltimore Orioles, Boston Red Sox, Cincinnati Reds, Colorado Rockies, Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, Minnesota Twins, ​​​​​​​New York Yankees, Oakland Athletics, Philadelphia Phillies,​​​​​​​ San Diego Padres, San Francisco Giants, St. Louis Cardinals, and Toronto Blue Jays, according to a report from Zach Buchanan of The Athletic.

This no-trade list doesn't necessarily mean Greinke would outright reject a move to these teams. Players have used no-trade clauses as a source of leverage to renegotiate contracts, as Jonathan Lucroy attempted to do when the Milwaukee Brewers agreed to a trade that would have sent the catcher to the Cleveland Indians in 2016. When the Indians wouldn't agree to waive his 2017 team option, Lucroy vetoed the deal and wound up being shipped to the Texas Rangers.

Greinke is still owed $104.5 million over the next three seasons. The 35-year-old posted a 3.21 ERA and 3.70 FIP in 207 2/3 innings across 33 starts last year - the fourth time in the past five seasons that he made at least 32 starts and threw at least 200 frames.
