Astros' Zack Greinke: Picks up second win with Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke (12-4) allowed two runs on seven hits with two walks and six strikeouts across six innings to earn a victory in the first game of a doubleheader against the White Sox on Tuesday.

Although he won in his Astros debut, his second outing went much smoother, and he picked up his 12th win of the season. Even though he allowed five runs in his first start with the Astros, Greinke owns a 3.00 ERA in his last six appearances. Overall, has a 3.08 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 143 strikeouts in 158 innings this season. Greinke will make his next start Sunday at the Athletics.

Astros' Zack Greinke: Start pushed to Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke will pitch Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader after Monday's matchup against the White Sox was postponed due to inclement weather, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Greinke won his Houston debut against the Rockies on Tuesday, but he'll have to wait another day before toeing the rubber again. He owns a 3.08 ERA and 0.97 WHIP with a 137:23 K:BB over 152 innings this season.

Astros' Zack Greinke: Wins Astros debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke (11-4) picked up the win against the Rockies on Tuesday, giving up five earned runs on seven hits over six innings, striking out two and walking two in the Astros' 11-6 victory.

Making his team debut, Greinke was having a solid outing, but he served up a three-run home run to Raimel Tapia in the sixth inning that gave him a lackluster final stat line by his standards. Still, he did enough to pick up his 11th win of the season thanks to his teammates providing him with a ton of run support -- something he's likely to continue benefiting from with the move to an Astros team with an excellent lineup. The veteran right-hander now sports a 3.08 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 137:23 K:BB through 152 innings on the season.

Astros' Zack Greinke: Slated to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke is scheduled to start Tuesday at home against the Rockies, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Greinke will make his first start for the Astros on Tuesday after being acquired from the Diamondbacks in a last-minute blockbuster deal Wednesday. The veteran right-hander owns a solid 2.90 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 135:21 K:BB in 146 innings this season.

Astros' Zack Greinke: Pitches well leading into trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke gave up two runs on two hits and three walks over five innings during Wednesday's 7-5 loss to the Yankees. He had seven strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision in what is his final game with Arizona after being traded to Houston.

Greinke served up a two-run homer to Mike Tauchman during the second frame but otherwise limited the Yankees to one hit, though his outing was over after 82 pitches due to a rain delay. The veteran right-hander has a 2.90 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 135:21 K:BB through 146 innings and figures to join the Astros' starting rotation next Tuesday or Wednesday versus the Rockies.

Astros' Zack Greinke: Dealt to Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke was traded to the Astros on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

This was a bit of a shocker, as it had been all quiet on the rumor front with Greinke. The 35-year-old righty has been excellent again this season, logging a 2.87 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 128:18 K:BB in 141 innings (22 starts). He is owed $64 million through the 2021 season, but the Astros were not on Greinke's no-trade list, so the two sides were able to work out an agreement. Moving from the National League to the American League is not ideal, but the Astros are an excellent team to bank wins on, and pitchers almost always get at least slightly better after arriving in Houston.

Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Sharp in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Marlins, allowing one run on four hits and a walk over six innings while striking out five.

The right-hander gave up a run in the first inning and then shut down the Miami offense, retiring 11 straight batters at one point. Greinke was headed for his 11th win before Greg Holland blew a 2-1 lead in the ninth, and the Arizona ace will carry a 2.87 ERA and 128:18 K:BB through 141 innings into his next start Wednesday, on the road against the Yankees.

Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Gets no help from bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke allowed two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out nine over seven innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Saturday.

Greinke did his part, bequeathing a one-run lead to the bullpen, but a combination of Andrew Chafin and Zack Godley gave it all away in 1.1 innings. The Diamondbacks' ace will make his next start Friday at Miami.

Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Gives up five runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke (10-4) gave up five runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out six through six innings to take the loss against the Cardinals on Sunday.

Greinke forced 12 swinging strikes but allowed too many hits to be effective including a two-run home run to Paul Goldschmidt in the third inning. The 35-year-old allowed his first runs since June 24, and he has only walked two batters in his last 40.1 innings. Greinke will make his next start Friday against the Brewers at Chase Field.

Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Lined up to start series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke (personal) is listed as the starting pitcher for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Greinke bypassed the All-Star Game earlier this week while tending to the personal issue, but there was never much doubt the matter would impact his availability for the start of the second half. Since being pummeled for a season-high seven runs and giving up four home runs on Opening Day, Greinke has resembled the ace of yore with a 10-2 record, 2.28 ERA and 0.87 WHIP over his subsequent 18 starts.

Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Bows out of All-Star Game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke will not participate in Tuesday's All-Star Game due to a personal matter, Richard Morin of the Arizona Republic reports.

Manager Torey Lovullo said Greinke's absence will likely shake up his rotation for the road series against St. Louis that begins Friday but would not divulge the order of the rotation. Greinke was tentatively expected to start the series opener.

Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Punches out nine in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke (10-3) earned the win Friday after holding the Rockies scoreless over seven innings, recording nine strikeouts and allowing only four hits.

Greinke was dominant against a tough Rockies lineup to pick up his second straight win. The right-hander did not issue any free passes as he tallied his 2,543th strikeout, surpassing Bartolo Colon (2,535) and Javier Vazquez (2,536) to move into 32nd on the career list. Greinke has now earned 10 wins before the All-Star break for the fourth straight year. The 35-year-old will carry a 2.73 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 108:15 K:BB into his appearance at this year's All-Star Game.

Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Cruises to ninth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke (9-3) allowed five hits and struck out six over seven scoreless innings for the win Saturday against the Giants.

Greinke scattered those five hits and was never threatened in the start, the 16th time in 18 outings that he's pitched at least six innings. The Diamondbacks' ace lowered his ERA to an All-Star-worthy 2.90 and will make his next start Friday at home against Colorado.

June 25, 2019 01:24 AM
Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: No-decision against Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke didn't factor into the decision against the Dodgers on Monday, giving up four earned runs on seven hits over six innings, striking out six and walking one in the Diamondbacks' 8-5 victory.

Greinke got off to a rough start, giving up three earned runs in the first inning, but he managed to settle down and salvage a respectable final stat line. He also helped his own cause with his third long ball of the season, touching up Clayton Kershaw with a second-inning solo shot. Greinke is putting in another solid campaign in his age-35 season, as he's sporting a 3.08 ERA, a 0.95 WHIP and a 93:15 K:BB over 108 innings.

Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Charged with loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke (8-3) surrendered five runs on 11 hits while striking out two through seven innings Wednesday to take the loss against the Rockies.

The right-hander was in unusual form Wednesday, allowing a season-high 11 hits in a tough outing. Greinke held the Rockies scoreless until the fourth inning, when he gave up a two-run homer to Daniel Murphy. He then retired seven of the next eight batters until trouble knocked again in the seventh, when the 35-year-old allowed three runs on six hits, including five straight. On the bright side, Greinke was coming off 7.1 shutout innings against the Nationals and had not allowed a run over his last two starts. Despite the loss, he still owns a 2.91 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 87:14 K:BB. Greinke will look to rebound when he takes the mound for a Monday start against the Dodgers.

Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Notches eighth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke (8-2) allowed two hits and no walks while striking out three across 7.1 scoreless innings to earn the win Thursday against the Nationals.

Greinke held a no-hitter through six innings before allowing an infield single to Trea Turner to begin the seventh frame. He worked with exceptional efficiency, beginning 16 of the 23 batters he faced with a strike and needing only 75 pitchers to retire 22 batters. It was another dominant outing for Greinke, who has not allowed an earned in each of his past two starts, spanning 13.1 innings. He'll draw his next start Tuesday at home against the Rockies.

Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Cruises through six shutout innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke improved to 7-2 on the season after striking out seven in six scoreless innings Saturday against Toronto. He gave up four hits and two walks.

Greinke only allowed two runners to reach scoring position all game. He was pulled after the second of those players, Lourdes Gurriel, led off the seventh inning with a triple. The start was a good recovery from the four runs in four innings he allowed last time out against the Mets, and he lowered his ERA to 2.87 in the process. He'll look to improve that number again Thursday against the Nationals.

Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Start pushed to Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke (neck) will start Saturday against the Blue Jays, Jody Jackson of FOX Sports Arizona reports.

Greinke apparently dealt with a bit of a stiff neck during his previous outing, during which he allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out two in four innings. While his neck is responding well, the Diamondbacks want to play it safe and give the veteran right-hander an extra day of rest before his next outing. As such, he'll flip places in the rotation with Merrill Kelly, who is now scheduled to start Friday's series opener in Toronto.

Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Rough outing Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke pitched four innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Saturday, allowing four runs on seven hits and a walk. He struck out two as Arizona won 6-5 in extra innings.

Greinke needed 80 pitches to get through the start, in which he was unusually generous with baserunners. It's the first time since April 9 the right-hander has allowed four or more runs. For the year, Greinke has a 3.09 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 75 strikeouts over 81.2 innings. He will look to get back on track against the Blue Jays on Friday.

Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke: Delivers another quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke gave up one run on four hits and two walks while striking out six through six innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Monday.

Other than allowing a solo home run to David Dahl, Greinke put up another solid performance. After a seven-run outing in his first start of the season, the right-hander has pitched 11 consecutive quality starts. He has a 6-1 record with a 2.07 ERA during that span. Greinke will look to keep rolling in his next start Saturday against the Mets.
