Will Major League legend Jack Greinke return to the Kansas City Royals?
‘MLB.com’ Kansas City reporter Ann Rogers said on the 25th (Korean time), “According to sources, the club still wants Greinke back. Moreover, he is confident and optimistic about the possibility of doing so,” the report said.
Greinke began his professional career in a Kansas City uniform with the 6th overall pick in the 1st round of the 2002 draft. He made his major league debut in 2004 and settled into the big leagues by finishing fourth in Rookie of the Year voting. 안전놀이터
He subsequently played 19 years in the big leagues, with the Milwaukee Brewers, LA Angels, LA Dodgers, Arizona Diamondbacks and Houston Astros.
He recorded a career record of 223 wins, 141 losses, ERA of 3.42 and 2,882 strikeouts, and achieved a brilliant career, including one Cy Young Award, six All-Stars, Gold Gloves, six Silver Sluggers, and two earned run averages. After his retirement, he is evaluated as a potential pitcher to enter the Hall of Fame along with Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander.
Many fans are curious about the final season of Greinke. Greinke, who is entering his 20th season this season, is 39 years old and his career is just around the corner. He doesn’t surprise me when he announces his retirement at the end of this season. This contract is attracting attention.
Despite the club’s continued interest, a deal has yet to be finalized. According to reports a few weeks ago, Kansas City wants a contract with a lot of incentives, and it is known that negotiations are lengthening in this area.
However, the recent trade of Michael A. Taylor and the trade of Adalberto Mondesi have freed up salary, and there are opinions that it can be used for Greinke.
If Greinke returns to Kansas City, he is expected to build a starting lineup with newly acquired Jordan Lyles, Daniel Lynch, Brady Singer and Chris Boubic.
