On the Record: Ned Colletti on Zack Grienke

Dodgers General Manager Ned Colletti watched Zack Greinke’s headfirst dive into second on a steal Sunday and said, “the more I watch Zack, the more I compare him to Greg  Maddux. I saw Maddux’s first pitch with the Cubs and his last pitch with the Dodgers, and they both will do anything to win, understand the game and play it to the hilt. They’re players. Similar builds. Similar students of the game. Hold runners.”
Greinke’s offensive line in 49 at-bats is .349/.429/.388/.816.
He hasn’t made an error all season.
He’s allowed three steals.
