Player Notes
Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale doesn't expect Zack Greinke (shoulder) to pitch again this season.

Advice: Neither do we. Greinke underwent an MRI after battling shoulder stiffness in his last start and there's just not enough time left in the season for him to make a full recovery. Greinke's first year with the Diamondbacks couldn't have gone much worse. The former Cy Young winner recorded an underwhelming 4.37 ERA over 26 starts starts and couldn't stay healthy. Set to turn 33 next month, it looks like Greinke's best days are behind him.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that Zack Greinke was scheduled to undergo an MRI on Friday after experiencing shoulder stiffness following Wednesday's start.

Advice: It sounds as though this could sideline the right-hander for the remainder of the season. His first season in Arizona hasn't gone as planned, compiling a 4.37 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 134/41 K/BB ratio across his 158 2/3 innings. He's in the first year of a massive six-year, $206.5 million deal that he signed last winter.

Zack Greinke allowed two runs and two hits over six innings in beating the Padres on Wednesday.

Advice: Greinke struck out seven, so it seems like another encouraging start. Nevertheless, he did walk four batters for the third straight start. It's a really unexpected development; prior to his four-walk outing Sept. 11, he hadn't walked four in a game since 2014. Greinke stands at 13-7 with a 4.37 ERA.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic notes that Zack Greinke has tweaked his delivery.

Advice: The change, which includes Greinke pausing over the pitching rubber before finishing toward home plate, began after a start against the Dodgers on September 5 when he gave up five homers. Greinke has declined talking about the change, but Diamondbacks pitching coach Mike Butcher said the high-priced right-hander was "getting a little quick" in his delivery and is using the pause in order to "stay back a little bit." Greinke has posted a disappointing 4.42 ERA over 25 starts in the first season of a six-year, $206.5 million contract.
