The veteran righty gave up just one run over 13 frames in his final two starts of the year, lowering his season ERA to 3.68 through 26 starts.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Seven scoreless in no-decision

    Greinke struck out two in seven scoreless innings while allowing four hits and a walk in a 4-3 extra-inning loss Tuesday in Detroit. He did not factor into the decision.

    Greinke was masterful Tuesday, facing just two over the minimum even though he allowed five baserunners thanks to a pickoff and two double plays. He needed just 86 pitches to complete the seven frames and left the game with the Royals leading 3-0. It was his longest and best outing of the season and he lowered his ERA for the year to 3.98.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Likely starting Tuesday

    Greinke will likely start Tuesday's road matchup against the Tigers, Anne Rogers of reports.

    Greinke allowed four runs on 10 hits and no walks while striking out three in 5.1 innings Tuesday against the Twins and will get a few extra days of rest prior to his next start. Max Castillo is expected to be called up from Triple-A Omaha to start Sunday's game against the Mariners at home.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Allows 10 hits

    Greinke gave up four runs on 10 hits and struck out three in 5.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Twins on Tuesday.

    The 10 hits allowed matched a season high for Greinke, though he managed to avoid issuing a walk for the first time in four starts. The veteran right-hander continues to struggle with pitching deep into games, as he's failed to complete six frames in three of his last four outings. For the season, he has a 4.21 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 70:25 K:BB through 124 innings across 24 starts. Greinke is projected for a home start versus the Mariners in his next outing.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Takes loss in Minnesota

    Greinke (4-9) took the loss Wednesday, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks over four innings in a 4-0 loss against the Twins. He struck out one.

    Greinke surrendered a two-run double to Gary Sanchez in the first inning to cap a three-run frame for the Twins, but the righty allowed only one baserunner over the next three frames. The veteran has been solid in his last five starts, turning in a 2.39 ERA over 26.1 innings. The 38-year-old has staggering home/road splits, posting a 1.93 ERA and a 4-2 record during 11 starts in Kansas City compared to a 6.36 ERA and 0-7 record in 12 starts on the road.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Quality start in return

    Greinke allowed a run on six hits and a walk with two strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision versus the Guardians on Wednesday.

    Greinke missed two and a half weeks with right forearm tightness, but it appears the time off served him well. The quality start was his third in five outings since the beginning of August, though he was on track for a hard-luck loss before the Royals rallied for a walkoff win in the ninth inning. Greinke now has a 4.00 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 66:22 K:BB through 114.2 innings across 22 starts this year. He's projected for a road start in Minnesota next week.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Reinstated ahead of start

    Greinke (forearm) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list prior to Wednesday's start against Cleveland.

    Greinke will return to action for Wednesday's series finale against the Guardians after missing two and a half weeks due to right forearm tightness. The right-hander has been relatively effective since the All-Star break, posting a 2.90 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 31 innings over six starts.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Starting Wednesday

    Greinke (forearm) will start Wednesday's game against the Guardians, Anne Rogers of reports.

    Greinke landed on the injured list in late August due to a right forearm injury, but he'll return to action following a relatively brief IL stint. The right-hander won't require a rehab assignment prior to rejoining the Royals, so it's not yet clear whether he'll be on a pitch count during Wednesday's outing. Over six starts following the All-Star break, he's posted a 2.90 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 31 innings.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Lands on injured list

    Greinke was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday retroactive to Aug. 21 due to right forearm tightness, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    The veteran exited his last start with forearm cramping but appeared clear of the injury since he was listed as Kansas City's probable starter for Saturday's matchup with the Padres; however, he'll instead require a trip to the injured list. It's unclear who will take Greinke's spot in the rotation, or if he's expected to be sidelined beyond the 15-day minimum.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Cleared for next start

    The Royals list Greinke (forearm) as their scheduled starter for Saturday's home game versus the Padres.

    Greinke's inclusion on the weekend pitching schedule would seem to imply that the forearm cramping he experienced in his most recent outing Sunday against the Rays is a non-issue coming out of his between-starts throwing session. The right-hander sports a 2.64 ERA in 31 innings over his six starts since the All-Star break, but he has just one win to show for it to go along with an underwhelming 16.2 percent strikeout rate.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Dealing with forearm cramping

    Greinke was removed from Sunday's start against the Rays after the fourth inning due to cramping in his right forearm, Anne Rogers of reports.

    Greinke experienced a cramp in his forearm in the fourth inning and was able to finish the frame, but the Royals elected to remove him from the game as a precautionary measure. The team will wait to see how he feels Monday before determining his status going forward. If he's cleared to make his next start, Greinke tentatively lines up to start at home against the Padres on Saturday.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Posts quality start in loss

    Greinke (4-8) took the loss Tuesday versus the Twins. He allowed three runs (one earned) on nine hits and struck out five without walking a batter in six innings.

    Greinke's allowed nine hits in each of his last two starts, but he's been effective with damage control. Unfortunately for the right-hander, the Royals' offense mustered only five hits and one walk without generating a run in a lopsided loss Tuesday. Greinke now has a 4.13 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 62:20 K:BB through 104.2 innings across 20 starts this year. He's lined up for a tough road start versus the Rays this weekend.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Earns fourth win

    Greinke (4-7) allowed nine hits and no walks while striking out five across 6.1 scoreless innings to earn the win Thursday against the White Sox.

    Greinke didn't allow any free passes or extra-base hits, which allowed him to hold his opponent scoreless for the third time in his last six starts. He's maintained a 3.00 ERA with a 23:7 K:BB in that span. For the season, Greinke has a 4.29 ERA in 98.2 frames.

  • Royals' Zack Greinke: Can't complete five innings

    Greinke (3-7) allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks with two strikeouts in 4.2 innings Friday, taking the loss versus the Red Sox.

    Greinke threw 95 pitches (57 strikes) in another short outing. He's failed to complete more than five frames in each of his last six starts. Of the seven hits he allowed Friday, four were doubles, though he was able to keep the ball in the yard. Greinke's had his struggles this year, posting a 4.58 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 52:20 K:BB through 92.1 innings across 18 starts. That WHIP would be his worst since 2007, while the ERA is his worst since 2005. The right-hander is projected for a home start versus the White Sox next week.
