Greinke Impresses In Debut With D-Backs
Zack Greinke made his Arizona Diamondbacks’ debut on Friday afternoon in a split squad game against the Oakland A’s. D-Backs’ fans have been anxiously awaiting to see what their newly acquired right-hander would do to help their team take that next step.
Greinke went the expected two innings for his first start on just twenty-five pitches with just one hit allowed and striking out two while facing the minimum amount of batters.
The thirty-two year-old spent the last three seasons with the LA Dodgers before becoming a free agent this offseason, leading him to sign a six year deal worth $205 million, the biggest contract signing in Arizona Diamondbacks franchise history.
Greinke had one of his best seasons in 2015 with a 19-3 record anda 1.66 ERA in thirty-two regular season starts.
On Saturday, D-Backs’ fans will get a look at their other newly acquired pitcher, right-hander Shelby Miller. Arizona is hoping that the addition of Greinke and Miller to their rotation will help the D-Backs take their next step in being Championship contenders.
