Greinke (8-4) allowed four runs on nine hits while striking out seven during Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Rockies. He did not issue a walk.

EDGE Analysis

Aside from the mistake pitch that Carlos Gonzalez hammered for a home run in the fourth inning, Greinke was mostly effective against the Rockies through the first seven frames Tuesday. Manager Torey Lovullo sent his ace back out to the mound with a 3-2 lead in the eighth, but Greinke was quickly pulled from the game after allowing back-to-back singles to Charlie Blackmon and DJ LeMahieu before Nolan Arenado roped a go-ahead two-run double off the right field wall. Greinke will look to rebound during his next scheduled start against the Phillies on Sunday.

Greinke (8-3) gave up five unearned runs on five hits and two walks over 5.2 innings but took a no-decision in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the Tigers. He struck out four.

EDGE Analysis

He was cruising through five innings, but a Chris Owings throwing error extended the sixth and eventually led to six Detroit runs, costing Greinke a shot at a win even if his ERA didn't suffer the consequences. The veteran right-hander has only delivered one quality start in his last four trips to the mound, and his run of short outings could continue Tuesday when the D-backs head to Coors Field.

Greinke was reinstated from the paternity list Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Greinke left the team Thursday to be with his family, but wasn't in any jeopardy of missing his upcoming start. The ace is currently scheduled to take the mound Wednesday against the Tigers.

Greinke was placed on the paternity list Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

With this news, Greinke will be away from the Diamondbacks for a few days. The 33-year-old just took his turn in the rotation Wednesday, so he should be back with the team and ready to make his next scheduled start against the Tigers next week. Silvino Bracho was recalled from Triple-A to offer another bullpen arm while Greinke is away.

Greinke (8-3) allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out eight batters through five innings during Wednesday's win over the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Considering the Friars are the lowest-scoring team in the majors, Greinke wasn't his sharpest Wednesday. Still, striking out eight batters and adding another checkmark to the wins column moves the fantasy needle. He's having a rebound campaign with a 3.20 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and career-high 10.7 K/9, and his 3.28 FIP suggests everything is sustainable going forward. Greinke lines up to face the Tigers at Comerica Park in his next start.

Greinke (7-3) tossed seven solid innings Thursday against the Marlins, allowing one earned run over seven innings, while striking out eight and allowing just four hits in the Diamondbacks' 3-2 win.

EDGE Analysis

It was a nice bounce back start for Arizona's ace, given that his last time out he gave up five runs in 5.1 innings at Milwaukee. Aside from that start, Greinke had a strong May, with opponents hitting .152 against him over four outings (30.1 innings) and scoring just eight runs, and now looks to be on track to continue that success throughout June.

Greinke (6-3) pitched 5.1 innings, allowing five runs on five hits with two walks and six strikeouts in Saturday's 6-1 loss in Milwaukee.

EDGE Analysis

Greinke entered the game on a hot streak, winning four in a row and five of his last six starts, but ran into a buzz saw in Milwaukee. With his counterpart Chase Anderson taking a no-hitter into the eighth, Greinke had no margin for error. He matched zeroes with Anderson through the first three innings, but allowed a bases loaded double to Jett Bandy in the fourth and a pair of tack-on runs in the sixth before being removed. Despite the loss, Greinke remains a premier pitching option, and he has a favorable matchup in his next start, when he faces the Marlins in Miami.

Greinke (6-2) came within an out of a complete game Monday, picking up the win after allowing one run on four hits and a walk while striking out a season-high 12 White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Torey Lovullo was showered with boos from the home crowd as he walked to the mound with Greinke just one out away from his first nine-inning complete game since June 7 of last season. The Diamondbacks were leading 5-1 at the time, and Lovullo's pitcher was sitting at 104 pitches. Regardless, owners can't complain with how the 13-year veteran has performed this year. Through 10 starts, Greinke is on pace for one of the best seasons of his career. He leads the NL in innings pitched (67) and strikeouts (78), while owning the league's second-best marks for wins and WHIP (0.97). A Saturday date with Milwaukee is on tap for his next start.

Greinke improved to 5-2 on the season after giving up four runs on five hits and two walks over 6.2 innings in Tuesday's 5-4 victory over the Mets. He struck out eight batters during the outing.

EDGE Analysis

Greinke saw his streak of five consecutive quality starts come to an end after serving up a two-run homer to Rene Rivera in the seventh inning to cut the Diamondbacks' lead to one run, but the bullpen shut down the Mets the rest of the way to help the right-hander secure another victory. Though he's served up nine homers in as many starts this season, Greinke has been able to avoid significant damage to his ERA thanks to an impeccable 66;11 K:BB, which represents the best ratio of his career. He'll benefit from another favorable matchup in his next turn Monday against the White Sox.

Greinke (4-2) gave up one run on one hit and one walk over eight innings in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Pirates and struck out 11 batters.

EDGE Analysis

After a forgettable first season in the desert, Greinke has returned to ace-like form in 2017, and saved his most masterful performance for0 Thursday. Greinke faced the minimum about of batters and carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning before the Pirates' Gregory Polanco hit a leadoff homer to spoil the effort. Still, thanks to a wicked slider and an excellent job painting the strike zone, Greinke was able to record 24 outs on an efficient 107 pitches before closer Fernando Rodney pitched a scoreless ninth inning to give the 33-year-old his fourth win of the campaign. With a 2.79 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 58:9 K:BB through 51.2 innings this season, Greinke has looked like one of the early frontrunners for the NL Cy Young award.
