After opting out of his contract with the Dodgers, hotshot starting pitcher Zack Greinke has found a new home — in Arizona, of all places.
According to several reports, Greinke has accepted a six year, $206 million deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The pitcher's annual salary now works out to around $34.3 million a year — an MLB record.
It's a significant promotion from the $147 million six-year contract with the Dodgers that he left behind in November, after a dominant 19-3 season which saw him narrowly miss out on another Cy Young award.
