Royals starter Zack Greinke has left Surprise, Arizona, to return to Florida, and no one seems to expect him back anytime soon.
The 22 year old Greinke was supposed to be the future of the Royals' franchise, a pitching phenom who was going to help bring the team out of its current doldrums, but he was pretty bad last season, and from the way manager Buddy Bell is talking in that article, he's not likely to be in the rotation to start the season.
G.M. Allard Baird says its not drugs, that Greinke wasn't kicked out of camp, but that it was a "personal matter" and that he wasn't going to reveal the exact nature of it.
Bizarre. I'm sure there will be more to this story in the coming days...
