Sep. 23 8:46 PM PT9:46 PM MT10:46 PM CT11:46 PM ET23:46 ET3:46 GMT11:46 8:46 PM MST10:46 PM EST11:16 PM VEN7:46 UAE (+1)10:46 PM CT-Greinke did not travel with the team to Baltimore because of shoulder stiffness and is expected to have an MRI.
Analysis: With the season drawing to a close, it makes little sense to pitch Greinke again so expect the team to shut him down for the final week. He's 13-7 with a 4.37 ERA in 26 starts.
Sep. 22 9:29 AM PT10:29 AM MT11:29 AM CT12:29 PM ET12:29 ET16:29 GMT0:29 9:29 AM MST11:29 AM EST11:59 AM VEN20:29 UAE11:29 AM CT-Greinke pitched six strong innings, allowing two runs and striking out seven, to lead the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 3-2 victory over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday night and avoid a three-game sweep.
Analysis: He improved to 8-1 lifetime against the Padres with his third straight quality start, though he walked four for a third consecutive outing.
Sep. 17 9:57 AM PT10:57 AM MT11:57 AM CT12:57 PM ET12:57 ET16:57 GMT0:57 9:57 AM MST11:57 AM EST12:27 PM VEN20:57 UAE11:57 AM CT-Control problems plagued Greinke again Friday as he tied a season high with four walks, allowing three runs - one earned - in six innings despite yielding just four hits in a loss to the Dodgers.
Analysis: Greinke, who also walked four batters five days earlier against the Giants, lost a third straight start Friday and fell to 12-7. ''My slider was pretty (bad) all day,'' he said. ''So I didn't really have many options after that." The good news for Greinke is that two of his final three scheduled starts are against the Padres, and he's 7-1 with a 1.96 ERA in 15 career starts against them.
Sep. 6 9:56 AM PT10:56 AM MT11:56 AM CT12:56 PM ET12:56 ET16:56 GMT0:56 9:56 AM MST11:56 AM EST12:26 PM VEN20:56 UAE11:56 AM CT-Greinke imploded in his return to Dodger Stadium for the first time since spurning the team as a free agent last December, allowing eight runs and five homers in the Diamondbacks' 10-2 loss Monday.
Analysis: He hadn't allowed a homer in his last three starts. ''I felt real comfortable out there, just not a good game,'' he said. ''I felt like I was going to make pitches and get every guy out.''
Aug. 31 11:28 PM PT12:28 AM MT1:28 AM CT2:28 AM ET2:28 ET6:28 GMT14:28 11:28 PM MST1:28 AM EST1:58 AM VEN10:28 UAE1:28 AM CT-Greinke allowed one earned run in six innings in a 4-3 win over the Giants on Tuesday.
Analysis: Greinke is 1-0 with a 2.08 ERA in his last two road starts.
Aug. 25 10:33 AM PT11:33 AM MT12:33 PM CT1:33 PM ET13:33 ET17:33 GMT1:33 10:33 AM MST12:33 PM EST1:03 PM VEN21:33 UAE12:33 PM CT-Greinke struck out five and reached 2,000 for his career Wednesday against the Braves. Greinke, 32, became the 78th pitcher to reach 2,000 strikeouts, fanning Freddie Freeman to start the fourth for the milestone.
Analysis: Greinke pitched six innings and allowed four runs, six hits and three walks in his first home start since June 28. He left that outing with a strained left oblique and went on the disabled list for more than a month. On Tuesday, he'll face the Giants for the first time since yielding four runs and eight hits over six innings on May 12.
Aug. 20 12:11 PM PT1:11 PM MT2:11 PM CT3:11 PM ET15:11 ET19:11 GMT3:11 12:11 PM MST2:11 PM EST2:41 PM VEN23:11 UAE2:11 PM CT-Greinke had a solid bounce-back performance Friday in San Diego, allowing two runs and seven hits in seven innings with two walks and eight strikeouts in a no-decision.
Analysis: Greinke was ripped for nine runs in 1 2/3 innings five days earlier in Boston. He has a favorable matchup Wednesday at home versus light-hitting Atlanta, a team against which he's 2-0 with a 1.33 ERA in his last four starts. He's 4-0 with a 2.90 ERA in his last five outings at Chase Field but hasn't pitched there since June.

Analysis: This poor performance was a shocker after Greinke had gone 8-0 with a 2.47 ERA over his previous 10 starts.
Aug. 9 8:01 PM PT9:01 PM MT10:01 PM CT11:01 PM ET23:01 ET3:01 GMT11:01 8:01 PM MST10:01 PM EST10:31 PM VEN7:01 UAE (+1)10:01 PM CT-Greinke won in his return from a six-week stay on the disabled list, allowing three runs in six innings of the Diamondbacks' 5-3 win over the Mets on Tuesday.

Analysis: After an extensive warmup and stretching routine and some long toss in the outfield, the Diamondbacks' new $206.5 million man tossed to catcher Welington Castillo on Friday under cloudy skies that provided cool, comfortable workout conditions. "Very nice," Castillo said on several pitches. Greinke didn't say much aside from regularly shaking his head.
