Roenicke, Scioscia share notes after trade

MILWAUKEE -- Brewers manager Ron Roenicke spoke Saturday morning with his old boss, Angels skipper Mike Scioscia, about the team's big trade the night before that sent Zack Greinke west for three prospects.

Roenicke also spoke with Angels pitching coach Mike Butcher about Greinke, who makes his Angels debut on Sunday. Roenicke thinks the right-hander will be a good fit in Orange County.

"He loves the beach, so if he can get himself a place down near the ocean, I think he'll really enjoy it," Roenicke said.

Scioscia shared some thoughts about the prospects netted by the Brewers including shortstop Jean Segura. He will play shortstop at Double-A Huntsville, though Segura's stocky frame means he could someday wind up at second base.

"They think he's a good shortstop. They think he could be an All-Star second baseman," Roenicke said. "Right now, he's playing a good short."
