Veteran right-hander Zack Greinke (40), who signed a one-year contract with his former team, the Kansas City Royals, has no plans to retire yet.
At a press conference held on the 4th (Korean time) after the official announcement of a one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, Greinke said, “Maybe, maybe not,” when asked if this was his last season. . 안전놀이터
He said ‘there is no plan’, but it seemed that he had more weight on the extension of his active service rather than his retirement. “I don’t have a set plan at this moment,” he continued, saying, “If I throw well and feel good, I will continue to play.”
“It would be different if I didn’t feel good, but I’m not considering it right now. My family likes me to run, and they like me too. I think he is still a good player, so I will continue to work hard.”
Greinke, who recorded 223 wins and 141 losses and a 3.42 ERA in 556 games in 19 seasons in the major leagues, had 4 wins and 9 losses with a 3.68 ERA in 26 appearances and 137 innings in Kansas City last season. He had a 1.343 WHIP, 0.9 homers per 9 innings, 1.8 walks and 4.8 strikeouts, reducing his strikeout rate, but still controlling his homers and walks.
He, who was nominated in the first round of the 2002 draft and won the Cy Young Award in 2009 with Kansas City, said, “I am happy to be back. It was the team I most wanted to be on. It would have been better if the agreement had been reached two months ago, but it’s okay now.
