Dodgers | More on Zack Greinke

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly doesn't think it's possible for SP Zack Greinke (elbow) to pitch in more than two exhibition games before the start of the regular season and doubts that he'll be ready for his first start. The Dodgers have two off-days in the first eight days of the regular season and don't need a fifth starter until April 13; this may prompt them to place Greinke on the 15-day disabled list to start the season. Mattingly also said he doesn't want to use Greinke if he's not at full strength.

Fantasy Tip: This adds to the caution you should take in spending too much on the right-hander during your draft. While we keep posted on his status, consider Chris Capuano, Ted Lilly or Aaron Harang as fantasy dice rolls, in that order of preference.
