Date:

Zack Greinke pitched well in Sunday’s victory over the Giants, allowing two runs on six hits over six innings of work.

Greinke racked up eight strikeouts on the night without walking a batter. He cruised through the first five innings unscathed, but surrendered a pair of solo homer to Brandon Belt and Hunter Pence in the sixth. He’s now 2-0 on the young season with a 3.27 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 13/2 K/BB ratio through 11 innings. He’ll look to extend his dominance when he squares off against the Diamondbacks in Arizona next weekend.
Apr 6 - 11:01 PM

Zack Greinke held the Padres to two runs over five innings in the Dodgers' 3-2 win on Tuesday.

Greinke allowed two hits and two walks, striking out five in his five innings. It was his first start of the season after a calf injury forced him to miss the team's opening games in Australia. Now healthy, Greinke will try to keep the Tigers offense at bay next Tuesday.
Apr 1 - 10:27 PM

Zack Greinke will start Tuesday's game against the Padres.

Greinke didn't make a start in Australia due to a calf injury sustained earlier in camp, but the right-hander has been throwing in minor league games and has apparently progressed to the point that he's ready to make his season debut. The Dodgers are still trying to figure out who will start Sunday's opener after Clayton Kershaw was scratched with upper back inflammation.
Mar 26 - 9:56 PM

Zack Greinke threw four scoreless innings Monday in a minor league spring game.

Greinke yielded just one hit in the successful, pain-free outing. He is fully recovered from his early-spring calf strain and should be ready to join the Dodgers' rotation as soon as the club returns from Australia. Greinke registered a 2.63 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 148 strikeouts in 177 2/3 innings last season for Los Angeles.
Mar 17 - 8:50 PM

Zack Greinke allowed three runs in two innings during Wednesday's start against the D'Backs.

Greinke made his Cactus League debut after working his way back from a calf injury. He allowed six hits, including a solo home run to Andy Marte in the second inning. Greinke also struck out two. Results aside, the Dodgers are happy to see him back on the mound and hope he can be ready when the team returns back to the United States from Australia.
Mar 12 - 5:17 PM

Zack Greinke (calf) will start Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Diamondbacks.

Greinke threw a bullpen session and also went through some fielding drills on Monday, clearing the way for him to return to game action. It's been nearly two weeks since the righty tweaked his calf in his spring debut, but he's made steady progress since then. He won't pitch in Australia next weekend but is a good bet to start on March 30 in San Diego.
Mar 11 - 7:39 PM

Zack Greinke (calf) could return to Cactus League action as soon as Wednesday.

Greinke threw a bullpen session and also went through some fielding drills on Monday and didn't have any problems with his right calf. The right-hander has already been ruled out for the Dodgers' trip to Australia, but he's on track to be fine for Opening Day in the states.
Mar 10 - 6:31 PM

Zack Greinke (calf) threw 33 pitches over two innings in a simulated game on Saturday.

Greinke was working against Matt Kemp and several minor leaguers during the session. He's expected to be cleared for a return to Cactus League action next week and remains on track to be an option for the Dodgers Sunday night opener stateside.
Mar 8 - 2:36 PM

Zack Greinke (calf) will throw live batting practice Saturday.

It was either going to be Saturday or Sunday. As long as he doesn't have any setbacks, Greinke should be ready to return to Cactus League action next week. The righty has been ruled out for the Dodgers' two games in Australia, but he should be an option to start in their first game back in the states.
Mar 7 - 11:52 AM

Zack Greinke (calf) is scheduled to face hitters in live batting practice on Saturday or Sunday.

Greinke threw another bullpen session on Thursday with no issues, clearing the way for him to face hitters. As long as he doesn't have any setbacks, he should be ready to return to Cactus League action next week. Greinke has been ruled out for the Dodgers' two games in Australia, but he should be an option to start in their first game back in the states.
Mar 6 - 7:00 PM

Zack Greinke (calf) threw another bullpen session on Thursday morning in Dodgers camp.

Greinke made 25 throws, mixing in breaking balls, and reported no physical discomfort. He should face live hitters next in a simulated setting and could then return to Cactus League games. Greinke is likely a candidate to start March 30 in San Diego -- the Dodgers' first game back from their trip to Sydney, Australia.
Mar 6 - 12:42 PM

Zack Greinke threw a bullpen session Wednesday for the first time since straining his right calf.

The workout went smoothly. Greinke has already been scratched off the schedule for the Dodgers' season-opening series with the Diamondbacks on March 22-23 in Australia and can now focus on getting properly tuned up for his state-side debut. He'll presumably be a candidate to pitch March 30 in San Diego.
Mar 5 - 5:08 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Monday that Zack Greinke (calf) will not be ready to pitch in the team's March 22-23 games in Australia.

They figure the right-hander will be healthy by then, but having his stamina built up is another matter. "He's not going to be 90 pitches by that time," Mattingly said. Greinke long-tossed from 120 feet Monday, but there's no timetable for his return to the mound. He should still have time to get ready for Opening Day in the states.
Mar 3 - 6:21 PM

Zack Greinke (calf) played catch from 120 feet Monday.

Greinke had to be scratched from a scheduled bullpen session on Saturday after feeling pain in the area of his right calf strain and was limited to long toss on Monday morning in Dodgers camp. There's no timetable yet for his return to mound work and he can probably be ruled out at this point for the Dodgers' season-opening series against the Diamondbacks in Sydney, Australia.
