Will Jack Greinke (40, Kansas City Royals), who has virtually booked a Hall of Fame entry, eventually collapse on the threshold of 3,000 strikeouts?
Kansas City announced on the 6th 안전놀이터 (Korea Standard Time) that it will put Greinke on the injured list on the 15th due to a right shoulder injury. He is expected to be absent for about two weeks.
Earlier, Greinke started against the Minnesota Twins on the 5th and showed a sluggish performance of 6 runs in 5 1/3 innings and even got a shoulder injury.
This season’s performance is disastrous. He is 1-9 with a 5.44 ERA in 18 games. He struck out only 64 in 922/3 innings.
As a result, 3,000 strikeouts, which can be called Greinke’s final goal, were put on hold. Currently, he has 2946 strikeouts. In other words, there are still 54 left until 3,000 strikeouts.
Greinke has struck out about 3.6 times per game this season. In order to add 54 strikeouts, 15 games are needed. This injury is fatal.
Greinke, who has been in the Major League for 20 years, returned to his former team Kansas City last year, and his contract period is until this season. Based on current grades, there may be no more opportunities.
Attention is focusing on whether Greinke, who is about to retire after winning the Cy Young Award, achieving 200 wins in his career, and 3,000 innings, will be able to retire after achieving 3,000 strikeouts.
