Zack Greinke (40), who is very likely to be inducted into the Hall of Fame later, will remain with his parent team, the Kansas City Royals. Kansas City and Greinke have signed a deal.
On the 31st (Korean time), MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, announced that Kansas City and Greinke had agreed to a one-year contract. The specific salary was not disclosed.
This was a fairly predictable contract. Greinke, who has reached an inexorable age, is now approaching his retirement. He is likely to end his playing career with his home team. 안전놀이터
Earlier, Greinke signed a one-year, $13 million contract with Kansas City ahead of last season. This is the return of the parent team after 12 years since 2010.
Afterwards, even at the age of 39, Greinke threw 137 innings in 26 games, recording an ERA of 3.68. He only won four games, but this was not Greinke’s fault.
In addition, Greinke showed a sluggish appearance with an average ERA of 4.64 in the first half of last season, but announced a revival with 2.43 in 11 games in the second half.
Greinke, who is in his 19th year in the major leagues, pitched 3247 innings in 556 games until last season, recording 223 wins and 141 losses with an ERA of 3.42. 2882 strikeouts.
There are 118 left to strike out 3,000 in his career. Greinke only struck out 73 last year. Therefore, he will likely need two more years to reach 3,000 strikeouts.
