With Zack Greinke set to opt-out of his deal with Los Angeles Dodgers, a number of teams across Major League Baseball have been linked to rumors about interest in the right-handed star pitcher.
According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, the Dodgers biggest rival in the San Francisco Giants is expected to make a run at Greinke, pairing him with Madison Bumgarner at the top of the Giants rotation for years to come.
Per the report:
There is a ton of industry speculation that the Giants are going to take a serious run at Greinke after the right-hander opts out of his deal with the Dodgers. If so, San Francisco’s rotation theoretically could be comprised of Madison Bumgarner, Greinke, Mike Leake, Jake Peavy and Matt Cain, with Chris Heston and other young starters providing depth.
Greinke posted a 1.66 ERA with 200 strikeouts and 19-3 win-loss record for the Dodgers in 2015. Greinke is 7-0 with a 2.19 ERA versus the Giants in his career, so you can see why they would want him.
