Zack Greinke pitched well in a no-decision against the Tigers on Tuesday, scattering five hits over 5 2/3 innings.

Greinke allowed five runs in the sixth inning, though all of them were unearned. He struck out four and walked two on the night. The 33-year-old hurler is enjoying a resurgent 2017 season, registering a 3.00 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 104/19 K/BB ratio across 90 innings. He'll draw a difficult assignment his next time out, taking on the Rockies at Coors Field on Tuesday.

Diamondbacks activated RHP Zack Greinke from the paternity leave list.

Greinke was away for a few days but didn't miss a start. His next outing is scheduled for Tuesday in Detroit.

Diamondbacks placed RHP Zack Greinke on the paternity leave list.

Greinke just pitched Wednesday night, so he won't miss a turn in the Diamondbacks' rotation while he is away from the club. Silvino Bracho has been called up to serve as an extra reliever for the next few days.
Jun 8 - 2:34 PM

Zack Greinke won after allowing three runs in five innings Wednesday against the Padres.

Greinke figured to do better than this against the game's worst offense, but at least he did get eight strikeouts and his eighth win.
Jun 8 - 2:01 AM

Zack Greinke allowed two runs -- one earned -- on four hits over seven innings, striking out eight, as the Diamondbacks edged the Marlins 3-2 on Thursday.

Greinke's only flaw was a single in the fourth inning that snuck under center fielder Chris Owings' glove, allowing Dee Gordon to motor around from first base to plate two runs. That blemish had Greinke in line to pick up his fourth loss until the Diamondbacks rallied in the top of the eighth, instead giving the 33-year-old his seventh win. Greinke leads the league in wins and innings pitched, and he's among the leaders a number of other categories, including strikeouts and earned run average. He'll take that 3.06 ERA into a juicy matchup with the Padres on Wednesday.
Jun 1 - 11:40 PM

Zack Greinke allowed five runs over 5 1/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Brewers.

As he has in each of his last six starts, Greinke yielded a longball among his five hits allowed. He also walked two and struck out six in the outing. The loss was his third this year and his first in over a month, dropping him to 6-3 with a 3.24 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 84/14 K/BB ratio over 72 1/3 innings overall. Greinke will try to rebound Thursday against the Marlins.
May 27 - 7:58 PM

Zack Greinke held the White Sox to one run over 8 2/3 innings Monday in the Diamondbacks' 5-1 win.

Greinke nearly had a complete game, but manager Torey Lovullo lifted the right-hander after Jose Abreu doubled with two outs in the top of the ninth. Greinke was brilliant, yielding just four hits and striking out 12 batters against just one walk. He's now 6-2 on the year with a 2.82 ERA and he leads all National League pitchers in strikeouts with 78. A road start against the Brewers is next.
May 23 - 12:28 AM

Zack Greinke struck out eight but allowed four runs over 6 2/3 frames in Tuesday’s 5-4 win over the Mets.

Greinke stayed in the game after being hit in the foot with a Neil Walker comebacker to lead off the second inning, but it could have affected him given that three of the next four batters reached, which included a bases-loaded walk to the struggling Curtis Granderson. Granderson then hit a solo shot in the fifth and Rene Rivera smacked a two-run homer in the seventh. This was Greinke’s worst start on paper since mid-April, but it was hardly a poor effort. He’ll get the White Sox and Brewers next week.
May 17 - 12:49 AM

Zack Greinke was on his game in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Pirates, firing off eight innings of shutout ball while striking out 11.

Greinke was brilliant in this one. He did not allow a hit until the eighth inning, when Gregory Polanco finally slowed his roll with a solo home run to lead off the frame. Prior to that, only a Jordy Mercer walk had blemished his time on the mound. This was his second game of double-digit strikeouts in eight starts. After posting an unimpressive 4.37 ERA and 1.27 WHIP last season, the veteran right-hander has bounced back with a 2.79 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 58/9 K/BB ratio across 51 2/3 innings. He will look to continue this splendid season in a home start against the Mets next time he toes the rubber.
May 12 - 12:25 AM

Zack Greinke struck out seven while holding the Rockies to two runs in seven innings in Friday's win.

Greinke has been rock solid throughout and is sporting a 3.09 ERA after seven starts. He's struck out 47 and walked just eight through 43 2/3 innings. The ERA is never going to be what it was during his time with the Dodgers, though.
May 6 - 12:24 AM

Zack Greinke allowed three earned runs while scattering seven hits and two walks over six innings in a no-decision Saturday against the Rockies.

Greinke was in line for the victory, but closer Fernando Rodney turned a two-run lead into a one-run loss in the bottom of the ninth inning. At least the veteran Greinke was able to recorded nine strikeouts, but it was a bit alarming that he was tagged for three solo homers. It hasn't been a recurring theme, as he had allowed just two long balls over his first 30 2/3 innings, so don't be terribly concerned.
Apr 30 - 12:48 AM

Zack Greinke fanned 11 while allowing one run over six innings Monday in a defeat of the Padres.

Greinke has his ERA down to 2.93, and he's sporting a 31/6 K/BB ratio in 30 2/3 innings. Of course, it's helped a whole bunch that he's gotten to face the Padres twice in a row. Before that, he had a 4.32 ERA and a 14/5 K/BB ratio in 16 2/3 innings over three starts. Things will get a little more difficult with back-to-back starts against the Rockies coming up.
Apr 25 - 2:11 AM

Zack Greinke was a hard-luck loser after allowing one run in an eight-inning complete game Wednesday against the Padres.

It's just Greinke's fourth complete game since the beginning of 2011. Of course, he wasn't facing much of an offense tonight. He allowed five hits, walked one and struck out six in the 96-pitch gem. We're still not overly excited about his early season performance.
Apr 20 - 1:44 AM

Zack Greinke lost to his old team after giving up five runs and 10 hits in five innings Friday against the Dodgers.

Greinke pitched well in his first two starts, but the Dodgers racked up a bunch of singles against him tonight, and it didn't help matters that he also walked three batters. He should rebound against the Padres next time out.
