UPDATED: Zack Greinke Scratched From Wednesday Start, Will Skip Turn In Rotation

MILWAUKEE, WI - JULY 13: Zack Greinke #13 of the Milwaukee Brewers pitches against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Miller Park on July 13, 2012 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

UPDATE (4:52 pm): Now that the clubhouse is open we have a little more to report about what's going on. Here are the things we know:

I reported in the Mug a few minutes ago that Zack Greinke would start the final game of the Cardinals series on Wednesday, but that's no longer the case.

The team just announced that Tyler Thornburg, not Greinke, will start on Wednesday. Greinke is also not listed as a probable pitcher for the team's weekend series in Cincinnati. We don't know anything official beyond that, although Adam McCalvy says "something's up today."

UPDATE: Ken Rosenthal talked to Doug Melvin and tweeted the following:

This is a really puzzling time to do that, if it's true.

Greinke leads all of baseball with 20 starts this season, although that number is inflated a bit because of the weird ejection situation that led to him starting back-to-back games before the All Star break. He's posted a 3.57 ERA over 116 innings this season but allowed 15 runs (14 earned) in 14 innings of work in July.
