Zack Greinke allowed three runs on eight hits and no walks while fanning 11 batters over 7.2 innings against the Reds on Tuesday.
Greinke improved to 8-1 following Tuesday's stellar performance while tying a season-high in the strikeout department (11). He is now sitting on a 2.18 ERA and 1.12 WHIP through his first 11 starts, while owning a ridiculous 76:14 K:BB over 66 innings. He will get to build on his hot start when he takes on the Pirates on Sunday. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Rangers released OF Nate Schierholtz.
Schierholtz was informed that he would not make the team, and the outfielder opted to request his release from the club instead of being sent to the minors. He'll now search for another club that can provide him with a spot on the 25-man roster. Analysis: Ben Diamond
