Dodgers' Zack Greinke feels good after spring debut
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/11/15) Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke surrendered two earned runs in two innings in his spring debut Wednesday but said after the outing that he feels "really good healthwise," MLB.com reports.
Greinke is using the spring schedule to not only get healthy after receiving a precautionary elbow injection when camp opened but to also tinker with his pitches.
"I've been trying to make the slider better than last year, but it hasn't worked," Greinke said. "I'm trying to figure if I keep trying or go back to last year's. I'm trying everything. It looks good, but I'm giving up more hits than normal."
Greinke added that his changeup was "pretty good" and that his fastball was "OK, just not perfect." He'll likely only get to make four spring starts after being delayed early in camp and said he "should" be ready to take the mound for the second game of the regular season.

Dodgers' Greinke, Ryu could face hitters soon
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(3/4/15) Dodgers pitchers Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu could face hitters on Friday or Saturday, according to MLB.com.
Both players are dealing with injuries, and remain one start behind the other pitchers on the roster. Greinke has an elbow issue. Ryu is dealing with back stiffness. If they are able to face pitchers this weekend, both players could appear in games as early as Wednesday or Thursday.
Dodgers SP Zack Greinke tosses another 'pen session
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/3/15) Dodgers starting pitcher Zack Greinke completed another bullpen session on Tuesday, per MLB.com. Manager Don Mattingly told reporters he's progressed "steadily" since receiving a routine injection into his elbow in late February. He remains without a timetable for game action.
|2014 summary: Zack Greinke doesn't throw quite as hard as he did during his years with the Royals, but in 2014, he rediscovered his ability to get strikeouts at a high rate. He employed his changeup more often and got batters to chase and miss it with greater frequency. The result was Greinke's highest K/9 ratio (9.2) in three seasons, and that combined with some of his best control to date allowed him to compile a 2.71 ERA and 1.15 WHIP. Greinke ended the season as the 11th-ranked pitcher in Fantasy value.|
Playing time status: Despite strong control, Greinke is not especially efficient, so he is not likely to eat innings on a James Shields-like level. Barring injury, though, Greinke should surpass 200 innings for the Dodgers.
2015 outlook: At his best, Greinke can serve ably as a Fantasy ace, but his inconsistency as a strikeout pitcher makes it risky to count on him to do so. Still, he is perfectly safe to rely upon as a No. 2 starter in standard mixed leagues, making him worthy of a pick in the early rounds.
