Zack Greinke passed his physical examination on Monday, officially making him the newest member of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Greinke signed a six-year contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers worth $147 million, which is the second largest contract signed by a pitcher since CC Sabathia signed his 2009 contract with the New York Yankees.
With Greinke's new contract the Los Angeles Dodgers 2013 payroll is expected to top $200 million, which would be a first for any team in Major League Baseball history.

Tyler Beede was supposed to start Sacramento's matinee tilt on Monday in Tacoma, but he was scratched.
But not for the reason Giants fans have been hoping for. The top pitching prospect hasn't been called up.
The 24-year-old Beede was scratched after he strained his groin while warming up for the start.
Kraig Sitton started in Beede's place.
In 19 starts with the River Cats this season, Beede has a 4.79 ERA and 83 strikeouts in 109 innings pitched.
Beede, the 2014 1st round pick out of Vanderbilt, entered the season as the No. 89 prospect in all of baseball according to Baseball America, but fell out of the Top 100 in the Midseason update. The publication also had Beede as the Giants' No. 1 prospect in the preseason, but dropped him to No. 3 behind Chris Shaw and Christian Arroyo in the Midseason update.
