Found March 17, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke resumed playing catch yesterday, and everything appeared to go well for the team’s pricy offseason acquisition, according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com. "It was pretty good," Greinke said, adding that he hoped to increase the number of throws Saturday. "I don't think anyone was anticipating it not going good. As expected." Greinke made 63 throws to the team’s vice president of medical services. He started at 60 feet and progressed to 90 feet, while he appeared to increase his velocity throughout the session, according to Gurnick. Greinke and the Dodgers remain unsure when he’ll return to a mound. For this reason, Opening Day is in question, as the right-hander could be required to start the regular season on the disabled list. Greinke was recently scratched from a spring training start and sent to have his nagging elbow examined. Inflammation was discovered, and he had been shut down since resuming playing catch. If Greinke’s forced to start the season on the DL, the Dodgers have several options to fill in for him. Los Angeles entered camp with eight starts, including Greinke, Clayton Kershaw, Josh Beckett, Chad Billingsley, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Ted Lilly, Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang.
