Zack Greinke and the Diamondbacks played Team Mexico yesterday. During the game his fastball velocity topped out at 89.5 m.p.h. He was mostly sitting around 88. Greinke gave up two runs on six hits over 2.2 innings. After the game Greinke downplayed it saying, “it’s still early,” and the ever-famous, “it is what it is.”

Greinke, is still owed $172.5 million from the Diamondbacks. His velocity in the spring of 2016 was around 93 M.P.H. so, yikes.
