Zack Greinke consented to a six-year deal for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Greinke's takeoff figures to be a mishap for the Dodgers, whose revolution now comprises of Clayton Kershaw and a progression of special cases.
Greinke completed second this year in voting in favor of the Cy Young Award, close behind Jake Arrieta of the Chicago Cubs. Greinke posted a 1.66 earned-run normal that was the least in baseball in 20 years. He was 19-3 and contributed six or more innings every one of the 32 of his begins. His extraordinary season incorporated a scoreless dash of 45 2/3 innings.
The Dodgers, who won their third successive NL West title, were 23-9 in amusements began by Greinke. They were 69-61 in amusements began by any other individual. In three seasons with the Dodgers, he was 51-15 with a 2.30 ERA and served as the privilege gave the supplement to Kershaw, the agreement No. 1 pitcher in baseball.
Greinke, 32, turned into a free specialist this winter by practicing a statement in his six-year, $147-million contract. His choice to relinquish the remaining $71 million on his agreement and re-enter the free specialist market shocked no one. The previous winter, Max Scherzer marked a seven-year, $210-million contract with the Washington Nationals. Jon Lester inked a six-year; $155-million manage the Chicago Cubs.
Greinke's choice looked particularly savvy on Tuesday when David Price consented to a seven-year, $217-million contract with the Boston Red Sox. Value's agreement was the most lucrative ever consented to by a pitcher, surpassing the seven-year, $215-million contract marked by Kershaw paving the way to the 2014 season.
Value's agreement, which had a normal yearly estimation of $31 million net worth, set the gauge for Greinke's arrangement. Since Greinke is two years more seasoned than Price, he was relied upon to get a shorter contract. In any case, the foresight was that he would be paid more per season. Dodger’s minority proprietor Magic Johnson knew Greinke would be costly, however, said Tuesday that re-marking him was a need.
