Zack Greinke took a loss Saturday despite tossing six innings of one-run ball against the Rockies.
Greinke struck out five, walked none, and gave up only four hits, but the Los Angeles offense provided only one run of support and the Los Angeles bullpen was dreadful once he departed. It was the first loss of the season for Greinke, who stands 5-1 with a 1.52 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, and 44/11 K/BB ratio in 53 1/3 innings. He faces the Padres at home next time out. May 17 - 12:15 AM

Zack Greinke yielded only one run over seven innings in a no-decision Monday as the Dodgers walked off winners versus the Marlins.

Greinke was in line to improve to 6-0 until Yimi Garcia blew the save in the ninth inning. He gave up the one run on a Marcell Ozuna home run in the seventh inning, one of only six hits he allowed on the evening along with two walks and five strikeouts. He stands with a 1.52 ERA, a 0.89 WHIP, and a 39/11 K/BB ratio in 47 1/3 innings. Greinke will try again for 6-0 over the weekend at home against the Rockies.
May 12 - 1:27 AM

Zack Greinke struck out seven while allowing only an unearned run over 7 2/3 innings in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

Greinke gave up just two hits, both singles, in the dominant outing. The Brewers' only run against him came on a Joc Pederson error. Greinke moved to 5-0 with the win and he's turned in six straight quality starts to begin the year. He'll take a 1.56 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 34/9 K/BB ratio into Sunday's start at the Rockies.
May 6 - 12:22 AM

Zack Greinke improved to 4-0 by allowing three runs on seven hits over six innings against the Giants on Wednesday.

He struck out six and walked two. To put Greinke's 2015 start in context, consider this: Wednesday was his worst outing of the year. He's won four straight outings and would have won all five turns this year had Chris Hatcher not imploded in Greinke's 2015 debut against the Padres earlier this month. The right-hander will go for 5-0 in Milwaukee next week. He'll bring a 1.93 ERA with him.
Apr 30 - 1:32 AM

Zack Greinke allowed four hits over seven innings and combined with three relievers on a shutout of the Padres on Friday.

Greinke struck out seven and walked three. Despite another elbow scare this spring and some slightly diminished velocity this month, he's opened up with a 3-0 record and a 1.35 ERA in four starts.
Apr 25 - 1:42 AM

Zack Greinke improved to 2-0 after allowing three runs over 6 2/3 innings against the Rockies on Saturday.

Greinke has a 1.83 ERA and an even more impressive 0.71 WHIP after three starts. With the Padres and Giants next on the schedule, he's a definite threat for NL pitcher of the month honors.
Apr 19 - 1:26 AM

Zack Greinke tossed seven scoreless innings of ball with seven strikeouts in a 7-4 win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Greinke allowed five hits and didn't walk a batter in a crisp, clean outing. The Diamondbacks managed just one extra-base hit off the right-hander. In his first two starts, Greinke has allowed just one run over 13 innings. The 31-year-old is coming off a 203-plus inning, 2.71 ERA, 207/43 K/BB season and looks as sharp as ever. He will try to continue the stellar start in a date with the Rockies next time out.
Apr 12 - 8:07 PM

Zack Greinke limited the Padres to one run over six innings, but was left with a no-decision in Tuesday's loss.

Greinke held the Padres to just two hits and a walk while fanning four. He exited with a 2-1 lead, but the Dodgers' bullpen proved porous in the game's final three innings, allowing six runs in total. Greinke will look to earn his first win in his second start of the season next week at home against the Mariners.
Apr 8 - 2:16 AM

Zack Greinke is scheduled to pitch in a minor league game on Wednesday.

He made it through Friday's Cactus League game without any issue, despite his command being worse than he would like. He owns an 11/6 K/BB ratio over 12 2/3 innings on the spring and looks to be ready to go for Opening Day.
Mar 28 - 1:29 PM

Zack Greinke struggled in Friday's Cactus League outing against the Giants, allowing four runs (two earned) on five hits over 3 2/3 innings of work.

Greinke also issued a pair of walks while punching out three. The important thing to note is that Greinke felt good after the outing, even though his command wasn't where he wanted. The 31-year-old now boasts a 3.55 ERA and 11/6 K/BB ratio 12 2/3 innings on the spring.
Mar 28 - 12:55 AM

Zack Greinke tossed four scoreless innings in Saturday's exhibition start versus the Rangers.

Greinke looked good, limiting the Rangers to three hits and a walk while striking out six. The right-hander is potentially entering his final season with the Dodgers as he has the option to opt out of his six-year contract after the season. Greinke, 31, may be able to secure himself more money if he's able to match last season's 2.71 ERA and 207/43 K/BB ratio over 203 1/3 innings.
Mar 21 - 5:12 PM

Zack Greinke limited the Athletics to one run over three innings in his start on Monday.

Greinke's only hit resulted in the only run he allowed: a home run to Josh Phegley. He also walked one and struck out two. The right-hander had a slightly late start to the spring after getting an elbow injection in February, but there shouldn't be any concern about his ability to be healthy and productive in 2015.
Mar 16 - 7:12 PM

Zack Greinke wasn't sharp in his Cactus League debut versus the Cubs on Wednesday, giving up two runs on two hits and two walks in two innings.

Greinke threw more in the bullpen following his performance. He was slow to start after receiving a lubricating injection in his elbow in February, something he's had done multiple times before, so it isn't a big worry. Greinke, who could potentially opt out of his contract after the season, was an elite performer in 2014, finishing with a 2.71 ERA and a 207/43 K/BB ratio in 202 1/3 innings.
Mar 11 - 7:03 PM

Zack Greinke (elbow) threw live batting practice for the first time of the spring on Friday and came away feeling encouraged.

"Everything went good" the All-Star right-hander admitted, "You’re just building your arm speed up and trying to get comfortable with hitters in the box. That all worked out." He threw 36 pitches over his two simulated innings against minor league hitters. He'll throw one more bullpen sessions before making his Cactus League debut against the Indians on Wednesday.

Zack Greinke (elbow) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Friday in Dodgers camp.

If it goes well, he will make his Cactus League debut five days later. Greinke received a lubricating injection in his throwing elbow on February 19 and has been free of discomfort since. The right-hander should start the Dodgers' second regular-season game.
