Throw strikes. Get ground balls. Defense makes plays. That's the formula.
|2011 - Zack Greinke||7-3||11||11||0||0||0||0||62.1||66||42||39||8||12||80||5.63||1.25|
I heard this guy is good but I can't place where we've seen him before.
Greinke's been up and down quite a bit since his return to the field, and his last start was probably more representative of the down: 2 innings, 5 hits, 3 walks, 0 strikeouts and 7 runs. And that had come after he'd struck out 10 in back-to-back outings. That first 10-strikeout game, he allowed 8 runs. So...yes. Greinke has been all over the board.
The Twins have seen him on a number of occasions, so today they should just feel him out.
Lineups after the jump.
