KANSAS CITY, MO (January 26, 2009) -- The Kansas City Royals today signed right-handed pitcher Zack Greinke to a four-year contract through the 2012 season. Consistent with club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

The 25-year old Greinke, the Joe Burke Special Achievement Award winner for 2008, went 13-10 with a 3.47 ERA in 32 starts for Kansas City last season. He set career highs in nearly every category, including innings (202.1), strikeouts (183) and quality starts (23). His 183 strikeouts tied teammate Gil Meche for the fifth-most in the American League. Greinke's 3.47 ERA was the lowest since Kevin Appier's 3.40 mark in 1997 among Royals pitchers who qualified for the ERA title (min. 162 innings). The Royals' first round selection (6th overall) in the 2002 Draft, Greinke currently resides in Orlando, Fla.
