MLB Rumors: Royals & Veteran Pitcher Sharing Mutual Interest

According to Jon Heyman, he "keeps hearing" that the Kansas City Royals want to bring back Zack Greinke, and the veteran pitcher also wishes to return. Clearly, things are heating up between the two parties, and a deal could be on the way shortly because of it.

Greinke and the Royals have been heavily linked since the end of the season, and it ultimately makes sense. In his return to Kansas City, he did fairly well in 2022. Although he had a 4-9 record, his 3.68 ERA shows that he was plenty good enough and that he was the victim of poor run support.

Alas, we will have to wait and see if the Royals and Greinke can finalize a new contract soon. Based on all of the reports swirling around regarding the two, it seems more likely than not that a deal will get done.
