Dodgers News And Rumors: Zack Greinke May Opt Out After 2015 Season
Zack Greinke capitalized on a 15-win season in his 2013 campaign to sign a lucrative deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Grreinke signed a six-year, $147 million contract — the largest given to a right-handed pitcher.
However, the contract includes an opt-out clause after the 2015 season, which Greinke may be inclined to exercise. Should he go down that road, Greinke would be a free agent at the age of 31.
What may influence his decision is the contracts John Lester and Max Scherzer will sign this offseason. Greinke believes organizations are now paying on expected performance rather than previous history.
If Greinke were to opt-out, he would vacate three years and $77 million remaining on the deal.
