Dodgers president Stan Kasten told MLB Network Radio that the club is not concerned about Zack Greinke contract right now and will wait until after the season to worry about it.
Kasten said he last spoke to Greinke about his opt-out in the spring. They are playing out the season & will worry about it in offseason— MLB Network Radio (@MLBNetworkRadio) August 9, 2015
Los Angeles signed the righty to a six-year, $147 million deal in 2012, with the contract including an opt-out clause after three seasons. That means that Greinke can opt out of the contract after his season and hit free agency if he chooses. The All-Star and former Cy Young winner will be owed $71 million over the next three seasons if he decides to stick with the Dodgers.
Greinke has been great this season, posting a 1.71 ERA and a 0.85 WHIP with a record of 11-2. Greinke would join David Price, Johnny Cueto, Jordan Zimmermann and Scott Kazmir in the 2016 free agency class.
