D-Backs will push back Zack Greinke’s next start for a very smart reason…
Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo is considering pushing Zack Greinke‘s next start to this weekend in order to line him up to start the National League Wild Card game on normal rest, Nick Piecoro reports. The D-Backs open up their final series of the season, a three-game set, on Friday against the Royals in Kansas City. Greinke is currently on track to start Wednesday against the Giants and the team has an off day on Thursday.
Robbie Ray has been the Diamondbacks’ best pitcher by several measures, including ERA (2.95) and K/9 (12.3), but Greinke has been quite good himself (3.18) and has nine postseason starts under his belt in his career. He’s acclimated to postseason pressure. The D-Backs also signed Greinke to a $206.5 million contract two years ago, which is likely a factor.
The D-Backs are still waiting to find out which opponent will fly to Arizona for the Wild Card game on October 4. Currently, the Rockies hold a two-game lead over the Brewers and lead the Cardinals by 2.5 games.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/d-backs-will-push-back-zack-greinkes-next-start-for-a-very-smart-reason/https://i1.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/ap_c5fed71bdd314a1398fa7aa2eff965f5-1024x7941.jpg?fit=620%2C310&ssl=1https://i1.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/ap_c5fed71bdd314a1398fa7aa2eff965f5-1024x7941.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1MLBRecent Posts#MLB,Arizona Diamondbacks,Zach Greinke,Zack GreinkeDiamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo is considering pushing Zack Greinke‘s next start to this weekend in order to line him up to start the National League Wild Card game on normal rest, Nick Piecoro reports.
