ZACK GREINKE RUMORS & GOSSIP

FanGraphs: Are Sox Logical Trade Spot For Greinke?

(AP Photo)Here's the scenario. One team—the D'Backs—shelled out megabucks for Zack Greinke this past winter. So far, to put it mildly, he's been under-whelming (6-3, 4.71 ERA).

Greinke is signed through 2021 (6 yrs/$206.5M), but as FanGraphs.com points out, "...the D’Backs would remain responsible for the...

The shocking, swift decline of Shelby Miller

The Arizona Diamondbacks have not had the type of year they envisioned back during the course of the winter. Those words have been written and stated verbally in some order and some fashion countless times as we approach the two-month mark of the season. While there’s still plenty of time to hope that they can recover, the Diamondbacks have already dug themselves into a hole with...

What’s Up With Greinke’s Slider?

Zack Greinke goes to the mound today after giving up 13 runs in his last three starts, something he didn’t do at all last year. So we’re all trying to diagnose him. He is, too. We couldn’t figure it out together, really. Sorry to spoil the ending. The slider is getting hit hard. Of his pitch types, it has the second-worst exit velocity so far this year, and it’s suffered...
