Zack Greinke

  1. The Rays victimize the Dodgers with the hidden ball trick

    Aug 10, 2013, 6:45 PM EDT

    Roberto Hernandez

    In the bottom of the fourth inning of this afternoon’s game against the Dodgers, the Rays got an extra out by fooling Juan Uribe with the hidden ball trick. The Dodgers, already up 4-0, had the bases loaded with nobody out when A.J. Ellis hit a fly ball to Rays center fielder Wil Myers, allowing…

  2. Zack Greinke on Ryan Braun: “He lied to us”

    Jul 27, 2013, 11:22 AM EDT

    Ryan Braun

    Many of Ryan Braun‘s current teammates have been supportive of him publicly following the announcement of his 65-game suspension for his connections to Biogenesis, but one former teammate isn’t pulling punches. After taking a couple of days to gather his thoughts on the matter, Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke expressed his disappointment on Braun in comments…

  3. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 26, 2013, 6:55 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Nationals 9, Pirates 7: This could have been an awful, awful defeat, what with the Nats bullpen once again pooping all over itself. At least I’m assuming it would have been a defeat. The game was tied entering the bottom of the ninth. Thanks to Bryce Harper‘s walkoff homer, however, we don’t know how extras…

  4. Zack Greinke tosses a two-hit shutout against the Rockies

    Dodgers starter Zack Greinke made his best start of the season tonight, blanking the Rockies over nine innings as the Dodgers provided the bare minimum run support in a 1-0 victory. Greinke allowed just two hits and one walk while striking out nine — and he didn’t record his first strikeout until the fifth inning.…

  5. Miguel Montero calls out Yasiel Puig for “immaturity”

    Jul 11, 2013, 9:16 AM EDT

    Puig face

    Miguel Montero is not shy to call out other players in the media. He accused the Brewers of stealing signs in the 2011 playoffs. He railed against former teammate Trevor Bauer after Bauer was traded to Cleveland. He called Zack Greinke “chickensh**” following the brawl between the Dbacks and the Dodgers. Now he has Yasiel…

  6. Tom Garfinkel steps down as Padres President/CEO

    Jul 9, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    ?????????????????????????????????????????

    You tend not to hear much about team presidents unless they get involved in baseball operations in meaningful ways. Padres team President Tom Garfinkel didn’t do that, but you did hear about him anyway back in April when he said some insensitive things about Zack Greinke’s anxiety disorder and subsequently apologized about it. Now we’re hearing…

  7. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 9, 2013, 7:03 AM EDT

    Carlos Gomez

    Brewers 4, Reds 3: Holy moly that was a crazy game-ending catch for Carlos Gomez, robbing Joey Votto of the go-ahead home run: Incredible. Rays 7, Twins 4: The Rays continue to roll, winning their ninth in ten chances. Joe Maddon talked about his team going ten games over .500: “The thing I like is…

  8. Clayton Kershaw, Cliff Lee on pace for historically-great seasons

    Jun 29, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v San Diego Padres

    In a piece posted last night, ESPN’s Christina Kahrl notes that lefties Clayton Kershaw of the Dodgers and Cliff Lee of the Phillies are on pace for historically-great seasons, using Wins Above Replacement from Baseball Reference: 3. Just one pitcher in 10 years has produced a season worth 9.0 WAR or better And that would be…

  9. Report: Dodgers, Marlins talking Ricky Nolasco trade

    Jun 26, 2013, 11:29 PM EDT

    Ricky Nolasco

    Mark Saxon of ESPNLosAngeles.com says the Dodgers and Marlins are engaging in trade talks involving Ricky Nolasco. While rotation depth was supposed to be a major strength for the Dodgers this year, the team has lost Chad Billingsley and Josh Beckett to injury and has gotten little from Ted Lilly so far. The team’s rotation…

  10. Would the Pirates send Gerrit Cole back to the minors?

    Jun 24, 2013, 12:46 PM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Gerrit Cole is 3-0 with a 3.44 ERA through three career starts, walking just one batter in 18 innings while throwing 101 miles per hour and defeating Zack Greinke, Tim Lincecum, and Jered Weaver. And apparently the Pirates might send him back to the minors. General manager Neal Huntington said on his radio show Sunday…

  11. 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.…

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

    Jun 16, 2013, 10:37 AM EDT

    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…

  14. 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…

  15. Eric Hinske, Brandon McCarthy speak out on MLB suspension rulings

    Clayton Kershaw, Kirk Gibson, Clint Fagan

    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…

    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…

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

    Jun 13, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    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…

  18. 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…

  20. Diamondbacks, Dodgers brawl after Zack Greinke gets drilled

    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…

  21. 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…

    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…

    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…

  24. 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…

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…
