Zack Grienke (Shoulder) Not Expected to Pitch Again in 2016


Arizona Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale told the media today that he doesn’t anticipate Zack Greinke pitching again for the Diamondbacks this season due to a shoulder injury.

Patrick Corbin will start in place of Greinke on Tuesday in Washington.

Greinke underwent a MRI in Phoenix on Friday that revealed no structural damage in his shoulder, but with the Diamondbacks not in the hunt for the playoffs like they expected to be after an eventful off-season, it’s the best option to look ahead to 2017 with their $206 million investment.

After this season, Greinke is due $157 million over the next five years.

The 32-year-old Greinke, who will turn 33 next month, finishes 2016 with a 13-7 record, a 4.37 earned run average, and 134 strikeouts over 158.2 innings of work.
