Greinke (17-6) struck out eight over eight scoreless innings in a win over the Giants on Saturday. Greinke has now allowed just six earned runs over 34.2 innings in his past five starts, as the veteran continues to provide high-end marks for fantasy owners. With a 2.33 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 10.3 K/9 at Chase Field this season, expectations should remain high for Greinke's final two home matchups against Miami and San Francisco.
Greinke allowed two runs on five hits while striking out six batters through seven innings during Monday's loss to Colorado. He didn't factor into the decision. The 33-year-old veteran entered with a dominant 2.31 ERA, 9.90 WHIP and 10.5 K/9 through 16 home starts, so this was another strong outing at Chase Field. He's locked in as a set-and-forget option in all fantasy settings and lines up for road start against the Giants at AT&T Park before consecutive home starts against Miami and San Francisco (again). Greinke is in position to continue rewarding over the final weeks of the season with his favorable upcoming schedule.
Greinke gave up one run on four hits and one walk while striking out six in seven innings Tuesday against the Dodgers in a no-decision. He was matched on the other side, not in efficiency, but in run prevention, by Hyun-Jin Ryu, and the Diamondbacks ended up winning 3-1 in 10 innings. Greinke remains in the top 10 among qualified big-league starters in wins (16), innings (179.1), ERA (3.01), WHIP (1.06) and strikeouts (194). He lines up to start again Monday at home against the Rockies.
Greinke (16-6) allowed a single run on four hits and two walks while striking out six batters through six innings during Thursday's win over the Dodgers. The Dodgers beat Greinke in their last meeting, so it was encouraging to see the 33-year-old veteran rebound with a win against his former club Thursday. Greinke boasts a rock-solid 3.08 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 9.8 K/9 for the campaign, and his 16 wins pace the majors. It's worth noting that he's been less effective away from Chase Field this season with a road 4.28 ERA, though. His next start projects to come at Dodger Stadium.
Greinke (15-6) allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits with four strikeouts over 6.2 innings to earn the win Friday against the Giants. Greinke has now thrown quality starts in six consecutive home outings dating all the way back to July 1 against Colorado. In that stretch, Greinke owns a 2.14 ERA and a 42:7 K:BB. Greinke has had his struggles on the road this year (4.28 ERA, 1.34 WHIP), but he has been reliable as can be at Chase Field.
