Zack Greinke is back with the Kansas City Royals on a one-year deal.
The veteran right-hander came up to the big leagues with the Royals in 2004 and immediately became the team’s ace.
Following the 2010 season, he was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers and also spent time with the Los Angeles Angels, Los Angeles Dodgers, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Houston Astros.
The 39-year-old returned to Kansas City last year and posted a 3.68 ERA in 26 starts.
Needless to say, Greinke is still one of the more viable starters in the league.
On Twitter, MLB Network posted a graphic featuring all of the right-hander’s accomplishments.

Greinke has accomplished a lot over the course of his career.
He’s earned a Cy Young, won two ERA titles, six Gold Gloves, two Silver Slugger Awards, and has been named to six All-Star teams.
He will be entering his 20th season in the Majors.
Over the first 19 seasons of his career, Greinke owns a 3.42 ERA in 3,247 innings pitched and has struck out a total of 2,882 batters.
He’s also won 223 games.
Much of that success has come with Kansas City, the team that drafted and developed him.
It certainly would be hard to argue against the right-hander one day making it to the Hall of Fame.
20 seasons of success helps his case quite a bit.
Now, he’s back with the Royals for another ride.
Kansas City has also added veteran starters Jordan Lyles and Ryan Yarbrough to strengthen their starting rotation.
Greinke should once again be a pillar of stability for a young Royals team.NEXT: MLB Insider Reveals Details Of Zack Greinke's Contract
