Preliminary HOF’ Greinke retires from his parent team? ‘KC will remain’
Jack Greinke (40), who is likely to be inducted into the Hall of Fame later, is expected to retire from his former team, the Kansas City Royals.
MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, was optimistic that Greinke, who obtained the qualification as a free agent (FA) player on the 25th (Korean time), would remain in Kansas City.
Earlier, Greinke signed a one-year, $13 million contract with Kansas City ahead of last season. This is the return of the parent team after 12 years since 2010.
Afterwards, even at the age of 39, Greinke threw 137 innings in 26 games, recording an ERA of 3.68. He only won four games, but this was not Greinke’s fault. 안전놀이터
Greinke, who has reached an inexplicable age, plans to continue his career as a player instead of retiring. No new contracts have come out yet. But Greinke will most likely stay in Kansas City.
Kansas City isn’t a team that’s looking to make it to the postseason right away. Also, there is plenty of room in the starting rotation. There is no reason not to catch Greinke, which is advantageous for mobilizing spectators.
Greinke, who is in his 19th year in the major leagues, pitched 3247 innings in 556 games until last season, recording 223 wins and 141 losses with an ERA of 3.42. 2882 strikeouts.
There are 118 left to strike out 3,000 in his career. Greinke only struck out 73 last year. Therefore, he will likely need two more years to reach 3,000 strikeouts.
