Jack Greinke (41), who has only 21 strikeouts in his career, seems to have not given up the milestone. Instead of retiring, he chose to extend his career as an active player.마카오카지노주소
The Athletic of the U.S. reported on Sunday (Korea time) that Greinke wants to play in the 2024 season as well. He is trying to continue his career instead of retiring at the age of 41.
This is apparently due to the 3,000 strikeouts. Greinke had a total of 2,979 strikeouts as of last year. He has only 21 strikeouts to go before the 3,000 strikeouts, which is considered a big symbol.
Initially, Greinke was expected to strike out 3,000 last year. Since he had 2882 strikeouts until the last 2022 season, he only had to add 118 strikeouts.
However, Greinke had only 97 strikeouts last year, failing to achieve 3,000 strikeouts. He is also 41 years old. As a result, Greinke seemed to have failed to achieve 3,000 strikeouts.
Greinke chose to extend his active career to 3,000 strikeouts in this situation. The only problem is that he may not be able to win a new contract.
Greinke, who lost his skills, pitched 14 1/3 innings in 30 games (27 starts) for his former team Kansas City Royals last year, recording only 2 wins and 15 losses and a 5.06 ERA.
As a result, the prevailing view is that Kansas City is the only team that will give Greinke a new contract. It is very unlikely that another team will give Greinke a major league contract.
Greinke is ranked 20th with strikeouts in the history of Major League Baseball. Attention is focusing on whether Greinke, who has displayed commitment to playing baseball even at age 41, will be able to garner the 20th strikeout of 3,000 times.
