Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke could land on DL

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 17:01:53 -0700

Updating previous reports, the Arizona Diamondbacks will wait until Friday, July 1, before deciding whether to place SP Zack Greinke (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list. He left his most recent start Tuesday, June 28, against the Philadelphia Phillies, due to tightness in his left oblique.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, it remains uncertain if Greinke will make his next scheduled start versus the San Diego Padres Monday, July 4, so keep checking back for updates on his status. The 32-year-old right-hander went 4-0 through six starts this month and is 8-1 with a 2.64 ERA in 11 outings since May 1.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke's injury not too serious

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 10:53:11 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke's (oblique) injury isn't believed to be too serious. Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani missed 10 weeks after an oblique strain in spring training, but the Diamondbacks don't think Greinke's injury is as serious.

Fantasy Tip: It was terrible timing for an injury for Greinke owners, as the right-hander had been 4-0 with a 1.63 ERA and 31 K's in 38 2/3 innings over six June starts. Oblique injuries are often tricky for pitchers, so expect Greinke to at least miss a start and possibly land on the DL through the All-Star break.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke has oblique issue

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 04:29:33 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke (oblique) left his start after two innings Tuesday, June 28, due to tightness in his oblique muscle.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for further updates on his condition. If it's just tightness, Greinke may be in danger of missing a start for the first time since 2013. If it turns out to be more, that could be a disaster for the Diamondbacks. Right now it looks like manager Chip Hale removed Greinke for precautionary reasons.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke was lifted early, and it might simply have been a precaution. When we learn the exact source and severity of the injury we'll make sure to pass it along.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke on a hot streak

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 16:56:14 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke has gone 7-0 in his last eight starts and has a 2.18 ERA during that span. He has held opponents to a .191 batting average and a .224 on-base percentage in those eight games.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke has turned things around after struggling during the first month of the season. Greinke should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues because of his recent success as well as his favorable matchup.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke wins seventh straight start

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 15:20:29 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke yielded a solo homer to the second batter he faced on Saturday, June 18, then allowed only two more hits to the Philadelphia Phillies over eight innings of work to move to 10-3.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke was 3-3 with a 5.26 ERA after losing to the San Francisco Giants on May 12, but has been nearly lights out since, going 7-0 with a 1.90 ERA. If there is one downside during his hot streak, it is that he has only struck out more than seven batters once. Greinke's recent dominance figures to get its best test yet Thursday at the Colorado Rockies. While owners in most leagues should probably leave him in their lineups for that start, DFS owners should consider other alternatives.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke downs old team

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 22:53:53 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke allowed two earned runs, seven hits and two walks with six strikeouts over seven innings in a win Monday, June 13, against the Los Angeles Dodgers, his former team.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke started out super slow this season, but he is now up to nine victories and is pitching to his capabilities once again. Fantasy owners were nervous early on, but he has re-emerged as a top-flight fantasy option again.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke tosses CG shutout

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 22:35:46 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke registered a complete game shutout for his eighth win of the season Tuesday, June 7, against the Tampa Bay Rays. The right-hander surrendered only three hits, two walks, and he struck out two.

Fantasy Tip: All the talk about Greinke's struggles in the beginning of the year is now a thing of the past. That's because Greinke has been outstanding since the end of April, and he's out to a terrific start in June with a 16-inning scoreless streak. He may have started slow but at least it looks like the former Cy Young winner is back to his old self and straight up dealing.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke rounding into form

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 11:33:11 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke is 4-0 with a 2.57 ERA in his last four starts and 7-1 with a 3.46 ERA in his last 10 starts. On the season he is 7-3 with a 4.29 ERA. Greinke is 3-3 with a 6.54 ERA in seven home starts, and he faces the Tampa Bay Rays at Chase Field Tuesday, June 7.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke had a terrible start to the year but is starting to look more like the runner up for Cy Young in the National League in 2015. He's been bad at home, though, and the Rays have hit well on the road, so Greinke is a risk-reward play in daily games tonight. But based on how well he's pitched of late, you probably aren't sitting him in seasonal leagues.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke masterful in win

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 15:44:41 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke was at his best Thursday, June 2, opposite the Houston Astros. The right-hander twirled seven shutout innings, allowing just four hits. He also struck out a season-high 11 batters and walked none.

Fantasy Tip: Although he's now 7-3, Greinke has been painfully inconsistent this season for his owners. On this day at least, he was able to come through with his best performance as a Diamondback. The former Cy Young winner has exhibited shades of his old self, and hopefully his outing this afternoon can pave the way for more consistency. Arizona could certainly use it.
