Assuming Greinke passes his physical, he will officially become a Dodger on Tuesday.
The Los Angeles Dodgers sent shockwaves through the baseball world with their signing of Zack Greinke over the weekend. Greinke received a lucrative six-year deal worth $147 million. Along with ace lefty Clayton Kershaw, Greinke figures to anchor Los Angeles' rotation for a long time, and it seems the Dodgers will be favored to win the NL West in 2013.
Greinke is yet to officially become the newest member of the Dodgers. The 29-year-old pitcher will undergo a physical on Monday, and assuming everything checks out, he will be introduced to the media at a press conference on Tuesday. Greinke has been exceptionally healthy in recent years; he's made at least 28 starts in every year since 2005, including a career-high 34 last season.
Despite giving $147 million to Greinke, the Dodgers are expected to continue spending this offseason. They've been linked to a number of free agent starting pitchers, and there's always a chance general manager Ned Colletti could add another bat to his lineup.
