To the surprise of no one, Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke opted out of his contract on Wednesday and will be a free agent up for grabs for any team that wants to sign him. How much money will he get? Well, going by his stats, a lot.

Here’s a look at how Greinke compares to other starting pitchers since he joined the Dodgers in 2013. To qualify for these charts, you had to pitch in at least 400 innings since 2013, something 89 pitchers have done.
