The Major League Baseball season begins in Australia this season. One player not excited about this is Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke.
“I would say there is absolutely zero excitement for it,” Greinke told ESPNLosAngeles.com. “There just isn’t any excitement to it. I can’t think of one reason to be excited for it.”
One of the biggest problems players have expressed in games held overseas is the schedule. The Dodgers in an effort to hold ace Clayton Kershaw’s innings down are considering keeping him off the mound in Australia.
“It’s a baseball thing. It’s an ownership thing, spreading stuff around,” Greinke said. “That’s what it’s for and it’s for the greater good of baseball.”
The Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks will break from spring training on March 16 and play two games in Australia on March 22 and 23.
