Dodgers | Zack Greinke mechanic tweak succeeds

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 14:14:05 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke made a minor mechanical tweak in his delivery to induce a groundball Wednesday, April 1, and then struck out the next four batters. Greinke conferred with pitching coach Rick Honeycutt, and Honeycutt recommended the same mechanical tweak.

Fantasy Tip: Spring training isn't an important indicator for veterans. So Greinke's ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) so-so spring numbers shouldn't be a concern as he prepares his repertoire for the regular season. Greinke should be viewed as a low-end No. 1 starter for your fake rotation. His first start will come against the new-look San Diego Padres Tuesday, April 7, and he should be on your radar as a potential FantasyScore starter.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke makes spring debut

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 16:52:11 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke (elbow) made his spring training debut Wednesday, March 11. Barring any setbacks, he expects to be ready by opening day.

Fantasy Tip: A healthy Greinke slots nicely into fantasy rotations as an SP2. Monitor how his elbow responds to throwing in spring training, but he should be selected in the early to middle rounds of fantasy drafts.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke has positive BP session

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 12:30:34 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke (elbow) looked sharp Friday, March 6, facing hitters during a bullpen session for the first time since a mid-February injection in his right elbow. He is on track to throw another bullpen session before making his spring debut Wednesday, March 11.

Fantasy Tip: As long as there are no setbacks, Greinke is a solid No. 1 starter worth targeting early in drafts. Since joining the Dodgers, the 31-year-old righty has a 2.68 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP with 355 strikeouts over 380.0 innings through two seasons. Continue to monitor the situation this spring.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke to throw soon

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 09:15:27 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke (elbow) is scheduled to throw batting practice Friday, March 6, and will start in a spring training game five days later.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke has been dealing with an elbow issue and is slowly working his way back. It looks like Greinke should be fine for the regular season if he does not suffer any setbacks. He likely will be an option in one of the earlier rounds in mixed league drafts.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke throws bullpen

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 13:58:09 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke (elbow) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, March 3, and manager Don Mattingly said Greinke has progressed steadily since receiving a precautionary elbow injection.

Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers are being extremely cautious with Greinke this early in the spring. It doesn't appear that fantasy owners should be worried with the health of Greinke's right elbow at this time. You can continue to consider him a fantasy ace worth an early-rounds selection in drafts.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke feels fine

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 10:17:38 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke (elbow) threw his first bullpen session since an elbow injection Tuesday, Feb. 24, and he said he's not worried about the health of his right elbow. "It's the same as I did last year, at the end of the year, at the beginning of the year, in the offseason and the last time I talked to you guys," said Greinke. "There's always a little bit of concern." Greinke had received a lubricating injection of hyaluronic acid, which he's had in previous springs, in order to aid arthritic joints. He threw 24 fastballs Tuesday in what he said was "normal bullpen percentage" intensity. Greinke said he's "maybe three or four days behind some people. That's not a big deal."

Fantasy Tip: Greinke's elbow concern shouldn't concern you too much when drafting. Greinke should continue to sit firmly in the middle of the group of pitchers that is acceptable for a No. 1 pitcher for a fantasy baseball squad.

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 07:34:42 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke (elbow) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday, Feb. 24, after receiving an injection in his left elbow last week.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke having elbow woes so early is concerning. He's a good SP2 candidate in traditional leagues if all checks out.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke receives injection

Sat, 21 Feb 2015 08:59:41 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke (elbow) will be shut down for a few days after receiving an injection in his elbow to prevent chronic spring soreness.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke has plenty of time to prepare for the season if he is dealing with any soreness in his elbow, but owners should monitor the situation. He should be selected in one of the early rounds of fantasy drafts as long as he is healthy.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke could opt out of deal

Sun, 01 Feb 2015 11:11:45 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke has not decided if he will opt out of his contract after the 2015 season, potentially forfeiting three years and $71 million. Last year, he said his decision would be based on how SPs Jon Lester and Max Scherzer fared in free agency. President of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said in December that the club has no plans of discussing a contract extension with Greinke this offseason.
