Zack Greinke fires six solid innings in no decision Monday

Zack Greinke pitched six innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on seven hits and one walk while striking out one in Kansas City’s 5-2 extra-inning win against the Guardians on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Greinke ended his season back in Kansas City on a high note, despite not kicking up the victory. It was more impressive coming on the road where he was 0-7 with a 5.32 ERA this season. Greinke’s losing record was deceiving especially with his 3.68 ERA, one that could have been lower had he not attempted to pitch through an injury for a few starts he got rocked in earlier in the summer. Greinke finishes the season 4-9 with a 3.68 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 73 strikeouts in 137 innings across 26 starts. Greinke will be a free agent and it remains to be seem if and where the 38-year-old will pitch next season.

Zack Greinke fires seven scoreless innings in no decision Tuesday

Zack Greinke pitched seven innings, allowing zero runs on four hits and one walk while striking out two in Kansas City’s 4-3 loss to Detroit on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Greinke gave arguably his best performance of 2022, completing seven innings for the first time this season. Unfortunately for him, the Kansas City bullpen couldn’t finish the game and promptly gave up the lead in the 8th costing him the victory. It was the 19th time this season that Greinke walked one or fewer batters. Greinke remains 4-9 with a 3.98 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, and 72 strikeouts in 131 innings across 25 starts this season. Greinke’s next and final start of the season is scheduled for Monday against the Guardians.

Zack Greinke fans three Twins in no decision Tuesday

Zack Greinke pitched 5 1/3 innings, allowing four runs on 10 hits and zero walks while striking out three in Kansas City’s 5-4 victory over the Twins on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Greinke surrendered 10 hits including four doubles to Minnesota but most of the damage came in a three-run 3rd inning. Greinke’s offense got him off the hook in a rare poor home start. Greinke remains at 4-9 with a 4.21 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 70 strikeouts in 124 innings across 24 starts this season. Greinke has always pitched to a lot of contact and has given up his fair share of hits but the 38-year-old isn’t missing many bats these days causing him to be on pace for his first non-triple digit strikeout total in a non-Pandemic-shortened season since 2006. That season Greinke pitched just 6 1/3 innings in relief as he dealt with mental health issues. Greinke’s next start is scheduled for Sunday against the Mariners.

Zack Greinke allows three-run 1st inning in loss Wednesday

Zack Greinke pitched four innings, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out one in Kansas City’s 4-0 loss to Minnesota on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Greinke gave up three runs in the first inning and that was more than Minnesota needed against the suddenly stagnant Kansas City offense. Greinke’s one strikeout tied a season-low and was the fourth time he’s only fanned one batter. Greinke falls to 4-9 on the season with a 4.10 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 67 strikeouts in 118 2/3 innings across 23 starts. Greinke will try again for his elusive fifth win in his next start on Tuesday at home (4-2, 1.93 ERA at home this season) against these same Twins.

Zack Greinke registers quality start in no decision Wednesday

Zack Greinke pitched six innings, allowing one run on six hits and one walk while striking out two in Kansas City’s 2-1 win against the Guardians on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Greinke pitched well on Wednesday in his return from the IL but was in line for the hard-luck loss before his offense scored two in the 9th to beat Cleveland. Greinke is 4-2 at home this season with a 1.93 ERA in 60 2/3 innings across 11 starts. Greinke remains at 4-8 overall this season with a 4.00 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 66 strikeouts in 114 2/3 innings across 22 starts. Greinke will next take the mound on Thursday, September 15 against the Twins.
