Much-traveled pitching ace Zack Greinke has joined a very select group of pitchers who have struck out at least 200 batters for two or more teams in one season.

The right-handed ace joined Randy Johnson, Earl Wilson, Gaylord Perry, Bert Blyleven, Rick Sutcliffe, David Cone, Mark Langston and Frank Viola from many years ago.

Blyleven did it two times in 1976 with the Twins and Rangers totaling 219 K’s and in 1985 with the Indians and Twins totaling 206.

Most recent pitchers prior to 2012 joining the select group includes C.C. Sabathia in 2008 with 251 strikeouts with the Indians and Brewers, 2010 Dan Haren with Arizona and the Angels, 216 K’s.

In becoming the 11th pitcher to join the group, Greinke struckout 200 batters for the Brewers and Angels.

LA Angels’ Weaver named American League Player of the Week

 

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim pitcher Jered Weaver, who tossed the first no-hitter of his career last Wednesday and the second in the Majors this season, has been named American League Player of the Week in recognition of his accomplishment for the period ending May 6th.

This is Weaver’s first career Player of the Week honor.

In recognition of his American League Player of the Week Award, Jered Weaver will be awarded a watch courtesy of Game Time, the leader in licensed sports watches, available at MLB.com.

Weaver, Northridge, California native and a two-time A.L. All-Star, needed 121 pitches to shut down the Minnesota Twins, 9-0, in the ninth individual no-hitter in Angels history and the 10th overall. It was the first no-no for the Angels since Ervin Santana blanked the Cleveland Indians on July 27, 2011 at Progressive Field, and it was the first gem by an Angels starter at home since Mark Langston and Mike Witt combined to no-hit the Seattle Mariners on April 11, 1990.

Against Minnesota, the 6’7” right-hander threw 16 first-pitch strikes en route to a season-high nine strikeouts while issuing his lone walk to Josh Willingham in the seventh inning. The Twins’ only other baserunner came in the second when Chris Parmelee reached first base safely on a passed ball following a strikeout. The victory helped the Long Beach State product improve to 4-0 with a 1.61 ERA on the season.

The 29-year-old Weaver is a 2-time All-Star with a career record of 86-47, an ERA of 3.24, 1,022 strikeouts, 10 complete games, 5 shutouts and was the MLB strikeout leader in 2010.
