The Arizona Diamondbacks have landed one of the most coveted free agents on the market by agreeing to a contract with star pitcher Zack Greinke, US media reported Friday.

The blockbuster deal is reported to be for six years and worth $206.5 million, according to and others.

If the deal becomes official it would be a considerable raise for Greinke, who had opted out of a six-year, $147 million contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers after his third season in the City of Angels.

Greinke’s contract would average $34.4 million per year, surpassing the seven-year, $217 million deal ($31 million average per year) that David Price signed this week with the Boston Red Sox.

The 32-year-old Greinke led Major League Baseball with a 1.66 ERA this past season as he posted a 19-3 record, and, along with left-hander Clayton Kershaw, helped the Dodgers to their third straight National League West championship.
