Now that we are a little deeper into Spring Training ... Greinke has had mixed success, solid strikeout performance but he has been hit around a bit.
Not sure if he will make the Big Club coming out of camp. In a very peculiar contradition, the KC Star implies that he has a strong chance at one of the rotation spots. At the end of the same article there is a comment on Position Battles that notes he will likely start the season in AAA. Go figure

I am really rooting for this guy.
All other issues aside, when he was called up at 20, he was talked about in the same way we talk about, say, Cole Hamels or Jared Weaver. At the time of his debut he was touted as a Greg Maddux clone. And he's still only <b>23</b>. If you have ever seen him pitch, you can seen the raw material is there.
