Greinke and Kansas City for another year.
Right-hander Jack Greinke (40) will extend his active career. I will accompany my old team for another year.
MLB Dotcom, the official website of the U.S. Major League Baseball, said on the 30th, “Grainkey has agreed to a one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals.” The contract is between $8 million and $10 million and is expected to receive incentives depending on the performance.
Greinke entered the big leagues in 2004 wearing a Kansas City uniform. After playing until 2010, he played for the Milwaukee Brewers, LA Angels, LA Dodgers, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Houston Astros. He returned to Kansas City ahead of the 2022 season. He was a free agent and completed the contract for $13 million a year. He started 137 innings in a total of 26 games and posted 4 wins, 9 losses and a 3.68 ERA.
Big league results are spectacular. In 19 seasons, he played 3,247 innings in 556 games (514 starts), recording 223 wins, 141 losses, a 3.42 ERA, and 2,882 strikeouts. He was ranked first in innings and second in most wins among active players. Justin Verlander (New York Mets), who won the most wins, won 244 games. Greinke also ranked third in the career strikeout category with 2,882.
In 2009, he showed 16 wins and 8 losses, a 2.16 ERA, and 242 strikeouts, winning the Cy Young Award that only the best pitcher in the Major League could receive. He was named an All-Star six times and also won Gold Glove six times. 파워볼게임
MLB Dotcom said, “Grinkey is no longer the pitcher he used to be. Of the 140 pitchers who threw more than 100 innings in 2022, no player had a lower strikeout rate than Greinke (12.5%). “The walk ratio was also tied for 12th (4.6%),” he said adding, “Nevertheless, Greinke is still competitive.” He recorded less than two earned runs in 17 of the 26 games he started last year. “I was praised for showing the presence of a veteran in the starting rotation of Kansas City, where all of them are under the age of 26,” he pointed out.
