Zack Greinke

  1. Gerrit Cole is throwing 101 and slaying giants

    Jun 22, 2013, 1:01 PM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Gerrit Cole is 3-0 with a 3.44 ERA through his first three career starts, walking a grand total of one batter in 18.1 innings at age 22, and the names the former No. 1 overall pick has beaten makes it even more impressive. In his MLB debut Cole defeated former Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum.…

  2. Ian Kennedy says 10-game suspension “doesn’t make sense”

    Ian Kennedy was suspended 10 games by Major League Baseball on Friday morning for his role in last Tuesday night’s benches-clearing brawl between the Diamondbacks and Dodgers in Los Angeles. It was the longest suspension handed out to any player or coach involved in the fight and the lengthiest non-PED related penalty given to any…

    Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers are making progress with starter Clayton Kershaw on a seven-year contract extension worth in excess of $180 million. The 25-year-old left-hander enters his third and final year of arbitration going into 2014 after which he would be eligible for free agency. That the Dodgers would eventually sign Kershaw to…

  4. Miguel Montero on Zack Greinke: “He’s a little chickens**t”

    MLB handed down suspensions yesterday for Tuesday’s benches-clearing brawl between the Diamondbacks and Dodgers, with Arizona’s Ian Kennedy receiving a 10-game suspension and Eric Hinske getting five games. J.P. Howell and Skip Schumaker both got two games on the Dodgers’ side of things while Ronald Belisario served his one-game suspension last night. There was some…

    As you learned earlier this afternoon, Major League Baseball doled out suspensions as expected for the Dodgers’ and Diamondbacks’ participation in Tuesday night’s fracas. There weren’t too many surprises, though as Craig noted, Yasiel Puig and Zack Greinke were not suspended at all, receiving only fines. On the D-Back side of things, Eric Hinske received…

  6. MLB hands down the suspensions for Tuesday night’s Dodgers-Diamondbacks melee

    Trammell Mattingly

    The discipline has been handed down for the Dodgers-Diamondbacks melee on Tuesday night. Twelve different people were disciplined with eight being handed suspensions. The breakdown: Ian Kennedy gets a ten-game suspension; Eric Hinske gets a five-game suspension; J.P. Howell and Skip Schumaker each get two-game suspensions; Ronald Belisario gets a one-game suspension; Dodgers coach Mark…

  7. MLB expected to announce suspensions from Diamondbacks-Dodgers brawl on Friday

    AP Ian Kennedy Zack Greinke

    We heard yesterday that suspensions would be handed out today for Tuesday’s brawl between the Diamondbacks-Dodgers brawl, but an official announcement will have to wait for one more day. Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports that MLB is now expected to announce punishments tomorrow. No word on the reason for the delay, but…

  8. The Dodgers say it’s not over between them and the Diamondbacks

    Jun 13, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Greinke plunk

    There were no beanballs or fisticuffs in last night’s Dodgers-Dbacks game, but ESPN Los Angeles reports that the Dodgers do not consider their score with Arizona to be settled: “It’s not done,” reliever Ronald Belisario said … “If you really want to get technical about it, in baseball terms, it really shouldn’t be over,” Mattingly said. That due…

    The details of the Dodgers-Dbacks melee last night are here. Here are some pretty good pictures from it from the Associated Press, however. A pre-plunking Puig: Zack Greinke, using his previously-broken shoulder to protect his much more valuable head. And likely thinking “why was I not ejected after I threw at Miguel Montero? And why…

  10. Diamondbacks, Dodgers brawl after Zack Greinke gets drilled

    Jun 12, 2013, 12:42 AM EDT

    Miguel Montero, Yasiel Puig

    The fourth hit by pitch of Tuesday’s game between the Diamondbacks and Dodgers finally did the trick; Ian Kennedy nailed Zack Greinke in the shoulder in the bottom of the seventh, touching off a modest brawl. Punches were thrown after the benches and bullpens cleared, but most of the action was limited to yelling and…

  11. Settling the Score: Thursday’s results

    Craig is away today, so we’re going with a “Settling the Score” in lieu of the usual “And That Happened.” Don’t worry, we’ll return to our regularly scheduled programming on Monday. While plenty of attention was focused on the 2013 First-Year Player Draft last night, there were some baseball games going on. And Yasiel Puig stole…

  12. The Angels scored two runs on a strikeout yesterday

    I turned off last night’s Dodgers-Angels game around the time Vin Scully started talking about how Nick Punto was “scrappy” and “blue collar.” Even the legends fall victim to that jazz, it seems. Oh well. Before that happened, however, I saw a LOT of bad Dodgers defense. Like, “I wonder why Zack Greinke hasn’t gone…

  13. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Wilin Rosario

    Rockies 5, Diamondbacks 4: One of four games to require ten frames last night. This from the AP gamer: Reliever Matt Reynolds tried to outthink his former teammate, guess what pitch Wilin Rosario would be looking for and throw the opposite. Only, Rosario knew Reynolds was trying to get inside his head, so … Long story short, Rosario spent the last…

  14. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 16, 2013, 6:31 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    Mariners 12, Yankees 2: This one was over almost before it started, with Phil Hughes getting knocked around for seven runs in the first inning, which he did not escape. Raul Ibanez hit two homers and drove in six off his old team. Which, I imagine, will cause some columnist who has been lauding Brian…

  15. Dodgers activate Zack Greinke from the 15-day disabled list and place Josh Beckett on it

    Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Dodgers have officially activated right-hander Zack Greinke from the 15-day disabled list. He will make his third start of the 2013 regular season on Wednesday night against the visiting Nationals. To clear a roster spot, right-hander Josh Beckett was placed on the disabled list with…

  16. HBT Daily: Are they rushing Zack Greinke back?

    The Dodgers have lost nine of eleven. If they were doing better, would Zack Greinke be coming back three weeks ahead of schedule?

    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly confirmed to reporters this evening that Zack Greinke will return from the 15-day disabled list to start at home on Wednesday night against the visiting Nationals. This according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com. Greinke has been on the shelf since fracturing his left collarbone in a wrestling match with Padres outfielder…

  18. Report: Brewers offer rising star Jean Segura a long-term deal

    May 14, 2013, 5:59 PM EDT

    Jean Segura

    With their shortstop’s price tag likely increasing by the day, the Brewers have pitched Jean Segura and agent Joe Klein a long-term deal that could take the 23-year-old through his arbitration years and into free agency. Segura, named the NL’s Player of the Week on Monday, is batting .368/.412/.588 with six homers and 13 steals…

  19. Josh Beckett could be DL’d to make room for Zack Greinke

    May 14, 2013, 8:23 AM EDT

    Josh Beckett

    Josh Beckett‘s 2013 continued in its nightmarish fashion last night. He moved to 0-5 after losing to the Nats, giving up four runs — two earned — in three innings. His ERA went up to 5.19 and, as a capper, he “tweaked his groin,” which sounds way more fun than it actually is. Beckett said…

  20. Derek Lowe is no fan of Sabermetrics

    May 12, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    Derek Lowe

    Drew Davison of the Star-Telegram has an interesting article up in which Derek Lowe expounds on the increasing prevalence of statistical analysis in baseball. The Rangers signed Lowe to a Minor League contract in March and was eventually added to the bullpen. Lowe, who turns 40 years old on June 1, posted a 5.52 ERA…

  21. Zack Greinke makes rehab start, on track to join reeling Dodgers on Wednesday

    The high-priced Dodgers dropped their eighth straight game last night against the Marlins and currently sit in last place in the National League West with a disappointing 13-21 record, but there is some help on the way. Zack Greinke allowed eight runs (three earned) in 4 1/3 innings last night in a minor league rehab…

  22. Carlos Quentin has been terrible since Zack Greinke brawl

    May 10, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    Carlos Quentin,  Zack Greinke

    There were quite a few people calling for Carlos Quentin to receive a lengthy suspension after charging the mound and breaking Zack Greinke‘s collarbone. He ended up getting “only” eight games, but what’s happened may actually be worse for the Padres: Quentin has played, but terribly. Since the Greinke incident on April 21 he’s hit…

  23. Zack Greinke to make rehab start Friday, on track to rejoin Dodgers next week

    When Zack Greinke fractured his collarbone during a benches-clearing brawl with Padres’ outfielder Carlos Quentin on April 11, he was originally expected to miss about eight weeks. However, he’s now on track to return well ahead of schedule. Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports that Greinke will make a minor league rehab start…

    We’re smack dab in the middle of the first ten days-to-two week period of beautiful weather in Ohio. It’s low 70s, low humidity, sunshine and nice breezes.

  25. Zack Greinke is ahead of schedule

    zack greinke getty

    After Dodgers starter Zack Greinke suffered a broken collarbone after Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin charged the mound on April 11, estimates had Greinke missing eight weeks — a mid-June return if everything went according to plan. Greinke is ahead of schedule, though, according to MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick: He appeared to throw all of his pitches…
