Top Zack Greinke News

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Narrowly misses first win

    Greinke didn't factor into the decision during Friday's 14-10 win over Colorado, allowing seven runs (five earned) on eight hits with four strikeouts in 4.2 innings.

    Greinke struggled in the second and fifth innings, permitting three runs on three hits in the second and four more runs on four hits in the fifth which prompted his removal. The seven total runs Friday approach the 38-year-old's mark of 10 through his first six starts, though the one Brightside is he tossed a season-high 101 pitches. He'll have another opportunity to go for his first win next week against the White Sox.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Allows 10 hits Sunday

    Greinke allowed two runs on 10 hits and no walks while striking out three in 5.2 innings during the win over the Orioles in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Greinke was unable to record a third consecutive quality start Sunday, but he was still relatively effective at limiting runs considering he gave up 10 hits. The right-hander's control wasn't a major issue, as he threw 64 of his 93 pitches for strikes. Greinke hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of his starts this year, and he's posted a 2.67 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 33.2 innings. He projects to make his next start on the road against Colorado on Saturday.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Tough-luck loss

    Greinke (0-2) picked up the loss Monday after pitching six innings, surrendering one run on three hits while striking out one batter against the Cardinals.

    Greinke was very effective in this one, limiting the Cardinals to just three baserunners, a season low for him. The only blemish on his line came with one out in the bottom of the first inning, when Paul Goldschmidt took him deep for a solo shot. Greinke has now rattled off five straight starts to open the season where he has allowed three runs or less. He also has posted two consecutive quality starts. He will not offer very much in the strikeout department with seven total on the year, but his 2.57 ERA and 0.96 WHIP suggest that he should be in line to start picking up some wins sooner rather than later.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Turns in quality start

    Greinke allowed three earned runs on five hits and no walks while striking out four across six innings Wednesday against the White Sox. He did not factor into the decision.

    Greinke allowed an earned run in each of the third, fourth and fifth innings, though he still managed to turn in a baseline quality start. He has been extremely reliant upon soft contact to begin the season, as he has only six total strikeouts across 22 innings. While Greinke's fortunes could change quickly as a result, he's maintained a 2.86 ERA and has allowed two or fewer earned runs in three of his four appearances to this point in the campaign.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Takes loss despite solid effort

    Greinke (0-1) took the loss after allowing one run on six hits across five innings during Thursday's 1-0 loss to the Twins. He struck one and walked one.

    Greinke scattered six hits and one walk thanks to three double-play groundballs. The veteran continues to pitch well, but he's registered just two strikeouts across 16 innings, which hinders his overall fantasy potential. The 38-year-old's next start is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, April 27.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Limits damage in no-decision

    Greinke allowed two runs on five hits and one walk in 5.1 innings, striking out none in a 4-2 loss Thursday against Detroit. He did not factor in the decision.

    Other than allowing the first four batters to reach safely in the second inning, Greinke pitched well and induced two double-play ground balls. The 38-year-old has managed to allow only three runs despite having just one strikeout in 11 innings on the season. His next start will likely be next Wednesday against Minnesota.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Royals-Cardinals postponed Wednesday

    Greinke and the Royals won't face the Cardinals on Wednesday after the game was postponed due to inclement weather in St. Louis, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    The two teams will make up the interleague game May 2. As a result of Wednesday's postponement, the Royals will most likely push each of their five starters back a day in the schedule. Greinke is thus expected to make his next start Thursday versus the Tigers in Kansas City.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Strong outing Opening Day

    Greinke allowed one run on five hits across 5.2 innings but did not factor into the decision Thursday against the Guardians. He walked one and struck out one.

    Greinke signed a one-year, $13 million deal with Kansas City this offseason, returning to the team that drafted him in 2002. The veteran was solid in his first appearance of the season, but fantasy managers likely need more strikeout production from a player of Greinke's caliber. While plenty of pitchers around the league will be limited during the first weekend of the 2022 campaign, it appears like Greinke is just about fully stretched out, as he threw 84 pitches (56 strikes) Thursday.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Receives Opening Day nod

    Manager Mike Matheny announced Wednesday that Greinke will start Opening Day against the Guardians on April 7, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Kansas City reports.

    The veteran right-hander inked a one-year, $13 million deal with Kansas City in mid-March, and the start on Opening Day will be his first time taking the mound for the organization since 2010. Greinke had a 4.16 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 120:36 K:BB over 171 innings with the Astros last season.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Returning to Royals

    Greinke signed a one-year, $13 million contract with the Royals on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Greinke began his major-league career with the Royals in 2005, and he'll return to the organization after spending two and a half years with the Astros. He made 30 appearances (29 starts) for Houston in 2021 and logged a 4.16 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 171 innings. The Royals traded Mike Minor to the Reds on Wednesday, and Greinke figures to fill a prominent role in the team's starting rotation.
