Dodgers' Zack Greinke allows one run, saddled with loss Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/17/15) Zack Greinke took the tough-luck loss on Saturday as the Dodgers fell to the Rockies 7-1. Greinke pitched six innings, allowing just one earned run on four hits, including a first-inning home run to Carlos Gonzalez. Greinke struck out five and did not issue a walk, but was out-dueled by Jorge De La Rosa.
Greinke earned his first loss of the season, dropping his record to 5-1. His ERA stayed stationary at 1.52, which is still tops in the National League. He'll look to get back in the win column in his next start, currently scheduled for Friday against the division-rival Padres.
Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke fails to pick up win Monday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/12/15) Despite leaving the game with a lead, Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke did not earn his sixth victory of the season during Monday's 5-3 win over the Marlins.
Greinke allowed one run on six hits over seven innings of work. He also struck out five batters and walked two. His lone mistake was allowing a solo home run to Marcell Ozuna in the seventh inning.
Greinke was in line for the win, but Yimi Garcia blew the 2-1 lead in the top of the ninth inning. However, the Dodgers scored three runs in the ninth to win the game. He received a no-decision Monday, which ended his streak of five consecutive wins.
Greinke has pitched at least six innings and not given up more than three runs in any of his seven starts this season. His next expected start is scheduled for Saturday against the Rockies.
Rival executives expecting Dodgers' Greinke to opt out of contract
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/7/15) Rival executives are expecting Dodgers starting pitcher Zack Greinke to opt out of a contract that still has three years, $73 million left on it, if Los Angeles doesn't extend him, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Although, Heyman suggests it is unlikely the Dodgers will let Greinke leave Los Angeles since it has the financial resources to keep him.
Greinke is 37-12 with a 2.57 ERA in 66 starts with the Dodgers.
Zack Greinke moves to 5-0 for Dodgers
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/5/15) Dodgers starter Zack Greinke moved to 5-0 on the season with a win over Milwaukee on Tuesday.
Greinke didn't give up an earned run over 7 2/3 innings. He allowed two hits, two walks and an unearned run, reducing his ERA to 1.56. Greinke struck out seven and threw 108 pitches, 69 strikes.
"People in baseball circles know how good Zack is," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "He might be overlooked a bit because he's quieter and what Clayton's [Kershaw] been doing here the last four or five years has been off the charts, but within baseball circles, people know how good Zack is."
Greinke's next start is Sunday at Colorado.
Dodgers' Greinke labors through six innings, earns win vs. Giants
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke needed 110 pitches to get through six innings Wednesday but was able to earn the win in his team's 7-3 victory over the Giants.
Spotted to a 4-1 after the end of the first inning thanks to three Dodgers home runs, Greinke (4-0) gave up a home run of his own in the fourth but was able to make it through six innings to pick up a quality start. He gave up seven hits and two walks while striking out six.
Greinke owns a 1.93 ERA and 27:7 K:BB ratio in 32 2/3 innings. He's slated to face the Brewers in Milwaukee Wednesday.
|2014 summary: Zack Greinke doesn't throw quite as hard as he did during his years with the Royals, but in 2014, he rediscovered his ability to get strikeouts at a high rate. He employed his changeup more often and got batters to chase and miss it with greater frequency. The result was Greinke's highest K/9 ratio (9.2) in three seasons, and that combined with some of his best control to date allowed him to compile a 2.71 ERA and 1.15 WHIP. Greinke ended the season as the 11th-ranked pitcher in Fantasy value.|
Playing time status: Despite strong control, Greinke is not especially efficient, so he is not likely to eat innings on a James Shields-like level. Barring injury, though, Greinke should surpass 200 innings for the Dodgers.
2015 outlook: At his best, Greinke can serve ably as a Fantasy ace, but his inconsistency as a strikeout pitcher makes it risky to count on him to do so. Still, he is perfectly safe to rely upon as a No. 2 starter in standard mixed leagues, making him worthy of a pick in the early rounds.
