This is Zack Greinke and according to his face, I’m going to guess he found the bully that stole his lunch money back in the second grade.
After an exciting Opening Day, the festivities are over and we turn our attention to our number two, who really is more like a number 1A pitcher. The great thing about Greinke is that if he were on any other team, he would be their ace. If he was in the American League, he probably would have another Cy Young Award to his name.
According to Steamer projections on Fangraphs, Greinke is projected to have a 3.03 ERA this season. While not as low as his 2014 2.71 ERA, 3.03 still sits below his career average and is an ERA most Major League pitchers would love to have. We will get a glimpse as to how Greinke’s season will go later today.
Zack Greinke takes the mound against the Padres at 7:10 on Sportsnet LA. Again, for those that are not TWC customers, you can listen to the game on AM 570. Expect lineups to be announced close to game time.
