'3000K One More Year' Grainky Will '-21'

With 3,000 strikeouts and just 21 in his career, Jack Greinke doesn't seem to have given up on his record. Instead of retiring, he has chosen to extend his active career.

The Athletic reported Wednesday (Korea time) that Greinke wants to continue playing in the 2024 season. He plans to continue his career instead of retiring at the age of 41.

This seems to be due to the 3,000 strikeouts. Greinke had a total of 2,979 strikeouts so far last year. There are only 21 left until the highly iconic 3,000 strikeouts.

Initially, Greinke was expected to strike out 3,000 last year. As of last season in 2022, he had 2882 strikeouts, so he only needed to add 118 strikeouts.

However, Greinke failed to catch 3,000 strikeouts last year, striking out 97 times. He is also 41 years old. As a result, Greinke's attempt to strike out 3,000 seems to have failed.

Under these circumstances, Greinke chose to extend his career and showed a firm commitment to striking out 3,000. The only problem is that they may not be able to get a new contract.

Greinke, who lost his skills, pitched 142 and 1/3 innings in 30 games (27 starts) for his former team Kansas City Royals last year, with only 2 wins, 15 losses and a 5.06 ERA.

As a result, the prevailing view is that Kansas City is the only team that can give Greinke a new contract. It is very unlikely that another team will give Greinke a major league contract.

Greinke is ranked 20th with strikeouts in the history of Major League Baseball. Attention is focusing on whether Greinke, who showed his commitment to continue his career even at the age of 41, will be the 20th player ever to reach the 3,000th strikeout mark. Send private email
