Zack Greinke posted one of the greatest statistical seasons in MLB history with the Los Angeles Dodgers last season and parlayed that into a $208 million contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks this offseason. Greinke will now be facing off against his former team for the first time since leaving when the two teams kick off a three-game series Monday.
– Shark bites
- The Diamondbacks have won each of Zack Greinke’s past five starts.
- The UNDER is 5-1 in the Dodgers’ past six games.
- The Dodgers are 6-2 in their past eight games coming off consecutive road losses.
This will not be the first time Greinke has ever faced the Dodgers though – no, the pitcher has dominated LA in his career. Greinke is 2-0 with a 2.52 ERA in four career starts against the Dodgers.
Mike Bolsinger – who takes the bump for the Dodgers – has not been given a particularly long leash this season with the righty not making it through six innings in any of his four stars. Bolsinger is also coming off his worst outing of the season, as he allowed seven hits and six earned runs in a loss to the Colorado Rockies.
