The Los Angeles Dodgers are “determined” to sign free agent
Zack Greinke, no matter the cost, and it’s pretty clear they are going to extend
the right-hander his largest offer of the winter, reports Jon Heyman of
But it seems pretty clear who is going to offer Greinke the
biggest deal. The Dodgers seem determined to sign him, no matter the cost.
While Heyman makes it sound like the Dodgers are going to
offer Greinke far-and-away the highest free agent contract, Joel Sherman of the
New York Post later reported that the Texas Rangers are right there with Los
Angeles “in willing to spend on Greinke.”
Heard #Rangers right there with #Dodgers in willingness to spend on Greinke, #Nationals still talking #Angels all but fallen out at these $$

Sherman adds that the Washington Nationals and Los Angeles
Angels, two teams that have been tied to Greinke this offseason, have “all but
fallen out” of the sweepstakes at these current prices.
Last season with the Milwaukee Brewers and Angels Greinke
maintained an ERA and WHIP of 3.48 and 1.196 over 34 starts. The 29-year-old
owns a career ERA and WHIP of 3.77 and 1.247 with 8.0 strikeouts and 2.3 walks
per nine innings.
