Only 1 win in 11 games…
Jack Greinke (40, Kansas City Royals) was frustrated again. On the 25th (hereafter Korean time), he started in the 2023 major league home game against the Detroit Tigers held at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, USA, threw well with 4 hits (1 home run), 5 strikeouts, 1 walk and 1 run in 5 innings.
Greinke was replaced at the start of the sixth inning when the score was tied 1-1. However, it was a no-decision as the bullpen conceded one after another. Greinke has won only one win in 11 games this season. He continues to accompany his parents with a one-year contract of up to 15 million dollars (approximately 19.9 billion won), but it is clear that he is struggling. His pitch has dropped a lot, and he manages the season narrowly.
However, the content of the pitching was good that day. The four-seam is just over 90 miles, but he pitched mainly with change-ups and cutters. In the first inning, he showed the epitome of ‘Heosil Sil’ by handling Javier Baez with a 78-mile slider on second base.
In the 2nd and 3rd episodes, he committed a triple offense. From this time, four-seamers in the late 80s appeared. He took a strike count and led it to a breaking ball, or caught a strike with a breaking ball and conversely scored with a four-seam. His only run was a solo shot hit by Riley Green in the fourth inning. In the ball count 2B2S, he threw a 90-mile two-seam high and hit Woo Joong-wol solo shot.
but did not waver. 2 out and 2nd baseman Akil Badu was treated as a foul fly by the 3rd baseman with an 89 mph four-seam. After two outs in the fifth inning, he was hit in a row, but Javier Baez induced a floating ball in right field with a 90.2 mile four-seam with a full count. It means that you made a power struggle.
Greinke won 11 wins in 2021 when he was with the Houston Astros, then returned to his hometown Kansas City in the 2022 season and won 4 wins. 9 losses, ERA 3.68. This season, in 11 games, he had an average ERA of 4.55 with 1 win and 5 losses. He only added 5 wins in 2 years. There are still many matches left, but it is true that the team and Greinke are not able to create synergy with each other.메이저사이트
Greinke’s personal career is 224 wins, which is second in the major leagues for the most active wins. 1st Justin Verlander (40, New York Mets, 246 wins) is the same age as Greinke, but he is still the same stuff and has recently turned the multiplier clock again. Max Scherzer (39, New York Mets, 204 wins) and Clayton Kershaw (35, Los Angeles Dodgers, 203 wins) have passed their prime, but they are still building multipliers vigorously. Greinkey has no choice but to realize the season of crisis and the passage of time.
