Zack Grienke admitted he was "minutes away from going to a different team" before opting to join the Arizona Diamondbacks as a free agent.

Grienke was unveiled on Friday after he left the Los Angeles Dodgers to join the Diamondbacks on a six-year deal, worth $206.5million.

The 32-year-old pitcher was asked how close he was to returning to the Dodgers and replied: "Without getting too detailed, we were minutes away from going to a different team.

"It was that close."

While returning to the Dodgers was a possibility, the San Francisco Giants were also interested in Grienke, who finished second behind Dallas Keuchel for the National League CY Young award last season.

Greinke finished 19-3 with a 1.66 earned run average and 0.84 walks plus hits per inning average in 2015.

However, Greinke said: "As soon as [agent Casey Close] told me the D-backs called, it got me excited, and just went from there.

"It happened pretty fast, but it was a team I had a lot of experience with and knew really well, so it wasn't like I needed a bunch of extra time to get to know people or get to know the city."
