Astros' Zack Greinke: Needs two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke vowed to Astros pitching coach Brent Strom that he'll be ready for the season after two weeks of training, Chandler Rome of The Houston Chronicle reports.

Rome's article brings up a good point -- not all pitchers will be on the same schedule. Greinke has previously been noteworthy for being self-analytical and well-prepared, so while it might be easy to dismiss as a little too self-confident, perhaps in his case it's not bravado.

Astros' Zack Greinke: Looks sharp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke allowed one run on four hits while striking out two over four innings in Monday's spring game against the Tigers.

Greinke hasn't hit a road bump yet in his ramp-up to the regular season. Monday's earned run was the first he's allowed in three spring starts. The right-hander has allowed two runs (one earned) on seven hits while striking out seven without a walk in nine spring innings.

Astros' Zack Greinke: Velo up this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke hit 91 mph on the radar gun during Wednesday's spring game against the Marlins, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. He allowed two hits and struck out two over three shutout innings.

Greinke's fastball is up a few ticks from where it normally is this time of year. He chalked up the improved velocity to an offseason program in which he threw more and worked out less, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Greinke threw 38 pitches (27 strikes) and threw more in the bullpen following the game. He's allowed one unearned run through five spring innings.

Astros' Zack Greinke: Makes spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke allowed one unearned run on one hit while striking out three over two innings in Friday's spring game against the Marlins.

Greinke, who showed up to training camp just six days ago, made his spring debut and appeared to be right one schedule. He told Brian McTaggart of MLB.com that he was focused on location more than anything during his 28-pitch outing (22 strikes). This is Greinke's first spring camp with the Astros and first in Florida.

Astros' Zack Greinke: Spring debut coming Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke is scheduled to make his Grapefruit League debut Friday versus the Marlins, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Greinke didn't report to camp until last weekend, but the veteran right-hander kept his arm conditioned on his own and won't find himself too far behind the Astros' other starters as he gets added to the pitching schedule. The 36-year-old is notorious for pitching at lower-than-normal velocity in the spring, but Greinke's sterling track record provides little reason to doubt him finding a way to be effective once the season gets underway. After coming over in a midseason trade with the Diamondbacks last July, Greinke went 8-1 with a 3.02 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 52:9 K:BB across 62.2 innings in his first 10 starts in Houston.

Astros' Zack Greinke: Officially reports to camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke reported to spring training Saturday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Greinke reported late to camp as expected, but he is reportedly healthy and worked out Saturday. The right-hander could require some time to work with the team before being ready to compete in spring games, but it's unlikely that the veteran would face limitations going forward.

Astros' Zack Greinke: Reporting late but healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke is healthy but won't report to camp until Feb. 22, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Greinke's new manager Dusty Baker's reason for the late report date was simply, "Because he's Zack Greinke." The rest of the Astros' pitching staff has been in camp for a few days, but the veteran knows what it takes for him to get ready at this point in his career. There's no indication that his availability or Opening Day is at all at risk.

Astros' Zack Greinke: Named Game 3 starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke will start Game 3 of the World Series in Washington on Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Greinke has been the Astros' third starter all postseason and will remain in that role for the World Series. He'd be lined up to start Game 7 on regular rest should the series go that long.

Astros' Zack Greinke: No-decision in Game 4 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke gave up one run on three hits and four walks with five strikeouts in 4.1 innings in Thursday's 8-3 win over the Yankees in Game 4 of the ALCS.

Greinke appeared to be on the ropes during a three-walk first inning, but Brett Gardner's bases-loaded walk with one out was the only run the Yankees could muster off him. Greinke followed with a strikeout of Gary Sanchez to end the inning and was able to put up zeroes for the next three innings. He left the game leading 3-1 with one out in the fifth after a DJ LeMahieu single and an Aaron Judge walk. Greinke has fanned 16 in 14 postseason innings in 2019 but has allowed 20 baserunners and five home runs.

Astros' Zack Greinke: Starting Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke will start Game 4 of the ALCS against the Yankees on Thursday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

A rainout pushed the game from Wednesday to Thursday, meaning the Astros won't have to use anyone other than their top three starters. Greinke has an 11:1 K:BB in 9.2 innings this postseason but has also allowed nine runs, including five homers.

October 11, 2019 04:56 PM
Astros' Zack Greinke: Starting Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke will start Game 1 of the ALCS against the Yankees on Saturday, Alyson Footer of MLB.com reports.

The Astros could use Justin Verlander on short rest, but that didn't work out too well in the ALDS. Greinke is a more-than-capable alternative, though he didn't look good in his ALDS start against the Rays, allowing six runs in 3.2 innings in Game 3.

Astros' Zack Greinke: To start Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke will start the third game of the ALDS on Monday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Greinke's 2.93 ERA and 0.98 WHIP wouldn't make him a third starter on many teams. For the Astros, however, he'll follow Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole.

September 26, 2019 01:56 AM
Astros' Zack Greinke: Records 18th win in near no-hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke (18-5) gave up two hits and one walk while striking out nine through 8.1 scoreless innings to record the win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

Greinke took a no-hit bid into the ninth inning before allowing two singles to end his electric performance. Greinke was dominant in all areas, registering 20 swinging strikes without allowing a three-ball count until the fifth inning. Greinke finishes the regular season with a 2.93 ERA and 187 strikeouts in 208.2 innings.

Astros' Zack Greinke: Picks up seventh win as Astro
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke (17-5) allowed four runs on seven hits while striking out four over five innings to pick up the win Friday against the Angels.

Greinke survived a resilient Angels lineup to record his seventh win in nine starts as a member of the Astros. His effectiveness has dipped a bit since joining Houston, but the team with the third-most runs scored in MLB has averaged seven runs of support when Greinke starts. He'll make what is expected to be his final start of the regular season Wednesday in Seattle.

Astros' Zack Greinke: Fans seven in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke (16-5) struck out seven and picked up the win Saturday, allowing one run on six hits over six innings in a 6-1 victory over the Royals.

It was the right-hander's first ever win over Kansas City, the team he began his career with back in 2004. Greinke is 6-1 with a 3.10 ERA and 39:8 K:BB through 49.1 innings in eight starts since joining the Astros, and he'll look to stay in the win column in his next outing Friday, at home against the Angels.

September 9, 2019 11:48 PM
Astros' Zack Greinke: Strikes out five in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke (15-5) gave up two hits and no walks while striking out five through six scoreless innings to earn the win over the Athletics on Monday.

It was nice to get 15 runs to support the cause, but Greinke cruised through six innings, throwing 73 pitches and only allowing two baserunners. The 35-year-old has a 2.99 ERA with 167 strikeouts through 30 starts this season. Greinke is scheduled to make his next start Saturday against the Royals at Kauffman Stadium.

Astros' Zack Greinke: Takes first loss for Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke (4-1) allowed four runs on eight hits while striking out four over six innings in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Brewers.

The Astros mustered little in the way of an attack against Milwaukee pitching, and Greinke was handed his first loss since being traded to the Astros. The club has now lost two straight games started by Greinke after winning the first four. The right-hander will look to get back on the winning track Monday at home against Oakland.

August 29, 2019 08:48 PM
Astros' Zack Greinke: Struggles in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke did not factor into the decision against Tampa Bay on Thursday, pitching 5.2 innings and giving up five runs on six hits and one walk while striking out eight.

After four consecutive victories to start his tenure with Houston, Greinke was touched up for five runs Thursday to walk away with a no-decision. Four of those runs were courtesy of Travis d'Arnaud, who sandwiched RBI singles in the second and sixth innings around a two-run homer in the fourth. Despite the rough outing, Greinke's eight strikeouts were the most he has posted since joining Houston and a vast improvement over the lone whiff he collected in his previous outing. The 35-year-old will carry an overall 2.99 ERA and 1.01 WHIP into his next scheduled start, at Milwaukee on Tuesday.

August 24, 2019 08:00 AM
Astros' Zack Greinke: Still undefeated with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke (14-4) picked up the win in Friday's 5-4 victory over the Angels, allowing three runs (two earned) on 10 hits over 6.2 innings. He struck out only one.

The right-hander was far from dominant, managing only six swinging strikes out of 96 pitches (63 total strikes) on the night, but he was able to avoid any serious damage despite all the balls in play. Greinke has yet to lose in an Astros uniform, going 4-0 in four starts, and he'll carry an overall 2.83 ERA and 150:28 K:BB through 171.2 innings into his next outing Thursday, at home against the Rays.

August 18, 2019 10:12 PM
Astros' Zack Greinke: Earns 200th career win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greinke (13-4) allowed one run on four hits and three walks over seven innings Sunday, striking out six and earning the win over Oakland.

Greinke is now 3-0 since being traded to the Astros and hit a huge career milestone with his 200th victory. Marcus Semien's solo shot in the fourth inning accounted for Oakland's lone run in the contest. The 35-year-old lowered his season ERA to 2.84 with a 149:28 K:BB. Greinke will aim for a 4-0 start to his Astros career at home against the Angels on Friday.
