Zack Greinke gave up five runs on 11 hits with no walks and four strikeouts over 5.2 innings against the Royals on Monday.

Greinke failed take down his former team on Monday night, to the tune of a season-high five runs, falling to 9-4 with a 2.89 ERA and 1.21 WHIP through 16 starts. Although this was clearly one of his worst performances of the season, Greinke remains an elite fantasy starter moving forward as he has allowed more than three earned run in a start only twice in 2014. He will look to get back on track when he takes on the Cardinals on Saturday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
