Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke scheduled to throw Wednesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke will throw a minor league game Wednesday instead of his scheduled appearance Thursday against the Angels, reports MLB.com.

Greinke threw 76 pitches in 3 2/3 innings Friday, leading manager Don Mattingly to push for Greinke to work on his command in the minors.

"He's not thrilled about it," Mattingly said. "He'll throw Wednesday, the same day as [Clayton] Kershaw [against the Royals]. We feel he's not quite built up. He didn't get to do the ups and downs last night. He'll have an extra day before he starts [April 7 against San Diego]."


Dodgers' Zack Greinke feels good after spring debut


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) 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 shut down 'few days' after 'scheduled' elbow injection


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) Dodgers starting pitcher Zack Greinke received a "scheduled" lubricating injection in his right elbow on Thursday as part of preseason conditioning, and will be shut down for a few days, per the team's official website.

The 31-year-old right hander threw five bullpen sessions prior to reporting to camp. Don Mattingly told reporters that Greinke has had same lubricating injection in his elbow all three springs with Dodgers.

"It's pretty much been a common spring thing since we've had him," Mattingly said, per SB Nation.

Greinke went 17-8 with a 2.71 ERA and 207:43 K:BB ratio in 202 1/3 innings in 2014.


Dodgers' Greinke won't decide on opting out until after season


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) Previously, Dodgers starting pitcher Zack Greinke told reporters to check in with him about his contract, which has an opt out clause that goes into effect after the 2015 season, when spring training rolled around.

Now that it's here, he said he won't have an answer until this coming season is finished.

"Maybe it’s just a question that you guys ask me because I answer some questions I shouldn’t," Greinke said, via the Los Angeles Times. "But it seems to be a pretty obvious thing that it’s something that you don’t talk about. The teams have options all the time. They don’t comment before the season ends if they’re going to accept or decline a player’s contract. You’re always weighing things as they go and no one’s going to accept before they need to or decline a contract before they need to because so many things can happen. So I won’t have any answers until the season’s over.

Greinke has $71 million remaining after this year on his current deal that runs through 2018. It's likely he'd command much more than that in the open market if he were to become a free agent.

Greinke is set to make $23 million in 2015, and he's due another $71 million over the following three seasons if he remains under his current contract. The Dodgers said earlier this offseason that they wouldn't discuss a contract extension with the pitcher during the winter.

Greinke went 17-8 with a 2.71 ERA and 207:43 K:BB ratio in 202 1/3 innings in 2014.

He went 17-8 last year with a 2.71 ERA and 207 strikeouts.
