GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - If there's something Zack Greinke is used to, it's pressure.

From his rookie year in Kansas City to Milwaukee in 2010 and then the California Angels late last season, it's always been there in some form for Greinke. In 2002, he faced expectations that are part of being a first-round draft pick. In 2009, there was the AL Cy Young Award and the expected encore. Late last season, he was with a playoff contender.

Now, he has a $147 million, six-year deal that got big publicity when he signed it in December. It's not the biggest, that belongs to Seattle ace Felix Hernandez, but the investment clearly shows the confidence the Dodgers have in Greinke.
