Dodgers | Zack Greinke blanks Mets

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 20:14:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke allowed four hits and struck out four over seven scoreless innings in a win over the New York Mets Saturday, July 4, and he has not allowed a run in his last 27 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) now leads the majors with a 1.48 ERA, and he has allowed one run or less in 10 of his last 12 starts. He is worth paying up for at FantasyScore whenever he takes the mound.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke extends streak

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 16:50:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke allowed four hits and struck out six over 7 2/3 scoreless innings in a win over the Miami Marlins Sunday, June 28, and he extended his scoreless streak to 20 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) lowered his major league-leading ERA to 1.58, but he is actually just 1-2 over his last 10 starts thanks to terrible run support. Lack of support aside, Greinke is shutting down every lineup he faces right now, and deserves heavy consideration at FantasyScore whenever he takes the mound.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke lowers his ERA to 1.30

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 20:55:06 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke struck out five batters over six scoreless innings while allowing three hits and two walks during the Dodgers' 1-0 loss to the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, June 23. Greinke did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) continues to limit his opposition, yet he has just five wins despite his 1.70 ERA and 0.93 WHIP. His 2.93 FIP is another excellent mark. Though, fantasy owners should count on his ERA to increase going forward. Greinke remains a No. 1 fake starter in all fantasy formats, and he is an excellent FantasyScore option who can be started with confidence in the majority of matchups.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke not getting support

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 00:14:07 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke picked up his second loss of the season in his team's 3-2 loss to the San Diego Padres on Saturday, June 13. It was the sixth time in his last seven starts that Greinke had two or fewer runs of support.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) has a 5-2 record and is still a must-start pitcher in all formats including FantasyScore, but the lack of run support is something that should be of concern. As long as the Dodgers continue to struggle at the plate, will this eventually cost the team -- and Greinke -- some wins?

Dodgers | Zack Greinke doing well on mound

Tue, 12 May 2015 04:52:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke has a 1.94 earned run average in his last 15 starts dating back to an August 2014 loss against the Milwaukee Brewers. Greinke dropped his ERA to 1.52 this season.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($8,600, 17.2% of cap) is a must-start in all formats given his hot streak this year and his low earned run average. He has become one of the aces of a red-hot Dodgers pitching staff along with Clayton Kershaw.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke great in Milwaukee

Mon, 04 May 2015 22:56:06 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Greinke is a solid play at $8,600 (or 17.2% of cap) in FantasyScore due to his dominance at Miller Park over the year, and the fact the Brewers have been terrible this season.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke sporting a strong run

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 15:32:01 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke has not been credited with a loss since Aug. 9, 2014. Since then, he has an 8-0 record and a 2.00 ERA over 12 regular season starts.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($8,500, 17.0% of cap) has been excellent since joining the Dodgers, as he boasts a 35-12 record, a 2.59 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP and a 8.3 K/9 mark. While rarely included in the No. 1 fantasy starter discussion, Greinke has certainly pitched like one over the past two years and thus far in 2015. Start him with confidence in all formats, including FantasyScore, until he provides a reason not to.
