Zack Greinke rumors: Angels, Dodgers, Rangers, Nationals

Jeff Gross

Free agent right-hander Zack Greinke could land a contract in the range of six years at as much as $25 million per season.

Free agent right-hander Zack Greinke, who’s drawing interest from the Los Angeles Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, Texas Rangers and Washington Nationals, could land a contract in the range of six years at as much as $25 million per season, reports Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com:

Baseball executives see star free-agent right-hander Zack Greinke landing a deal for at least six years and perhaps as much as $25 million a year, which could bring Greinke's total haul to $150 million.

Heyman notes that the presence of both LA clubs figures to drive up Greinke’s price, not to mention the potential bidding war between the Angels and Rangers, who are American League West rivals. Heyman adds that "Angels people have seen the Dodgers as their biggest threat" to re-sign the right-hander.

If Greinke were able to sign for $150 million over six years it would surpass Matt Cain’s six-year, $127.5 million extension with the San Francisco Giants as a new record for right-handed pitchers.

Over 34 starts with the Milwaukee Brewers and Angels last season Greinke maintained an ERA of 3.48. The 29-year-old owns a career ERA of 3.77 over nine seasons in the majors.
