The Royals seem more than happy to accomodate him, especially since he is a bit, how should I say this..."fragile" mentally.
And I must ask, why is it that the Royals need Greinke in the rotation right now? Meche and De La Rosa (minus tonight) have been very good so far this year, and Perez has put up six or seven quality starts in a row. Bannister is doing OK, and will continue to get his innings all year, and we need to see if Elarton is going to be worth holding on to. Greinke will stay in the bullpen for a while.
OK, all that said, he likely won't be closing. Soria has had his hiccups, but overall has been very good, and Dotel just got off the DL. It seems like Greinke would be more useful as a middle reliever. We all know he is capable of throwing several innings, and has been very effective in that role so far. I don't see him picking you up any saves any time soon.
