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.
Mar 7 - 9:01 AM

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.
Mar 5 - 11:43 AM

Zack Greinke (elbow) threw a 23-pitch bullpen session Tuesday with no apparent discomfort.

Greinke received a lubricating injection in his elbow last Thursday, but he's already back on a mound. He has received a similar treatment in his previous two springs with the Dodgers, so it was strictly a precautionary measure.
Feb 24 - 12:12 PM

Zack Greinke (elbow) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday.

Greinke received a lubricating injection in his elbow on Thursday, but he played catch Sunday and threw off flat ground on Monday. He has received injections in previous springs to prevent dead arm, so it's not a major concern. He still has plenty of time to get ready for the start of the season.
Feb 24 - 10:07 AM

Zack Greinke (elbow) will throw off flat ground again Monday in Dodgers camp.

Greinke played catch Sunday for the first time since receiving a lubricating injection in his elbow last Thursday and the workout went smoothly. The right-hander has turned to lubricating injections several times in the past to help with dead-arm phases and they seem to do the trick. He is fully expected to be ready for the start of the regular season. Greinke, 31, can opt out of his contract with Los Angeles after the 2015 World Series.
Feb 23 - 11:52 AM

Zack Greinke (elbow) will resume playing catch on Sunday.

Greinke received a lubricating injection in his elbow on Thursday, but it's something he's had to do often at the beginning of spring training and not considered a big deal. He should resume throwing off a mound before long and have a relatively normal spring. Greinke can exercise an opt-out clause in his contract after the 2015 season.
