Zack Greinke exits start early in Royals’ loss to Twins

by admin

MINNEAPOLIS — Zack Greinke left Tuesday’s game with one out in the sixth inning with right shoulder discomfort.

The Royals’ veteran right-hander threw a pitch to Twins third baseman Jose Miranda and immediately signaled something was wrong, looking toward the Royals’ dugout in a 9-3 loss to the Twins at Target Field.

When head trainer Kyle Turner and manager Matt Quatraro came to the mound to check on Greinke, he was ready to walk off the mound. Greinke stayed in the dugout and watched the game after exiting. 

Greinke, 39, gave up six earned runs (including three homers) in 5 1/3 innings, striking out three. The Royals also checked on him in the second inning after he threw a pitch to Michael A. Taylor and one-hopped off the mound. Greinke squatted and seemed to be stretching out his leg, but as soon as Turner and Quatraro went out to check on him, Greinke was clear he was fine.

Bobby Witt Jr. provided most of the offense with a 432-foot, two-run home run in the third inning.
