Brewers | More on Zack Greinke

Updating previous reports, Milwaukee Brewers SP Zack Greinke (rib cage) has a small fracture of his seventh rib and a bone bruise on his eighth rib, according to MLB.com's Adam McCalvy. The normal recovery time for bone injuries is four to six weeks, but Greinke has already been healing for two weeks. Regardless, his recovery will extend into April. "We're not talking about this gross deformed fracture," said head Dr. William Raasch. "We're talking about something very subtle that we can barely see, and we found it on the MRI. We're not that concerned about it, except the fact that it's bad timing. He's got a sore rib because he fell on it, and unfortunately you stress your ribs when you throw baseballs hard." Ps Manny Parra (back), Mark Rogers (shoulder), Amaury Rivas (tooth), Tim Dillard and Wily Peralta are all candidates to fill in while Greinke is out.
