Zack Greinke dominant against Padres

Zack Greinke piled up 11 strikeouts over just six innings and allowed just one run in a 7-6 win over Padres.

Fantasy Impact

Greinke was dominant against the Padres for the second time in less than a week, only this time he received the run support he wasn't afforded at San Diego. He gave up just one earned run and, despite Silvino Bracho imploding in the seventh, was able to hold on for the decision and the win. The performance helped bring his ERA down to 2.93 and he now sports a shiny 31/6 K/BB ratio although toeing the rubber against San Diego certainly didn't hurt. He'll get the hard-hitting Rockies next.

Zack Greinke takes the complete game loss Wednesday against the Padres

Zack Greinke pitched eight innings Wednesday night, allowed only one run on five hits and struck out six, but lost the game as he was out-dueled by Jhoulys Chacin. Greinke gave up a solo home run in the bottom of the eighth, which proved to be the difference.

Fantasy Impact

This was a nice bounce back effort for Greinke following last week's poor showing. Greinke's ERA is now 3.28 on the season. Compared to last year, Greinke is keeping the ball in the ballpark at a much better rate.

Zach Greinke pitches decently in Opener

Greinke threw 92 pitches in five innings and allowed two runs while striking out four and walking two. His velocity was better than the Spring, which is a great sign, but he struggled a bit with his control, throwing 55 of his 92 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Impact

The odds are that Greinke will pitch better this season than last, but he will need to go further in games to have a chance to win some games. Look for his numbers to improve from here.

Zach Greinke not great in final tune up

Greinke pitched four innings allowing six hits and three runs with no walks or strikeouts. It'd be more encouraging if he had been better, but not much stock should be put into his spring, except his fastball velocity.

Fantasy Impact

Since last September, Greinke has lost nearly two mph on his fastball. In 2015, Greinke added two mph to his fastball after the spring, but last year his velocity did not increase once the season started. This should be something to monitor as Greinke would be a different kind of pitcher if his fastball averages around 90 mph.

Zack Greinke named Opening Day Starter

Greinke will make his second consecutive Opening Day start for the D-backs. On April 2, Greinke will presumably face Madison Bumgarner of the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

This comes as no surprise as Greinke is the de facto ace of the D-backs. He will look to improve on last year's 4.37 ERA.
