Zack Greinke has officially opted out of his contract with the Dodgers that had $71 million remaining over a span of three-years. Greinke who elected free agency, and is searching for more security in his next contract, is arguably the top arm available in this years free agent class. At 32-years-old, Greinke is on the wrong side of 30, in an era where handing someone his age a contract north of $150 million, over five-years is an extremely risky move. But we’re talking about a guy who has been as consistent as can be throughout his career, a former AL Cy Young Award winner, who could potentially win his second from this years excellent performance on the mound.

Greinke endured a historical year that will make him a hot commodity this offseason, recording his best year as he owned a 1.66 ERA, which was best in the big leagues and second best in Dodgers history. He wound up with a 19-3 record, a 0.84 WHIP and 200 strikeouts. Greinke is expected to have numerous suitors lining up to ink the All Star, where he’ll surely get the money he demands annually, but it’s the team that’s willing to give him the extra year that will most likely end up with the right handed hurler.
