After earning himself an incredibly hefty payday of $206.5 million over six years, Greinke gives the Diamondbacks a top-of-the-line starter, and one of the best pitchers in baseball.
Sadly, the only thing that has looked good so far is the new jersey designs that the D-Backs unveiled for us this season.
With a forgettable 9.90 ERA (after posting a 1.66 through the entire 2015 season), fantasy owners can’t be pleased.
In Greinke’s defense, he did take the mound on Monday with the flu, where he was touched for seven runs. Still, the next start wasn’t much prettier giving up four earned runs and walking three to go with seven base knocks surrendered.
Don’t look for this trend to continue, as Greinke is far too talented to continue to pitch so poorly. He will get it back together and be amongst the top ten fantasy baseball pitchers before long.
No need to panic guys.
