Originally written on Dodgers Rumors  |  Last updated 11/15/14
Zack Greinke was scratched from Monday’s scheduled start and was flown to Los Angeles to have his right elbow examined by Dr. Neal ElAttrache. Greinke first reported soreness in his elbow last week but was able to throw his bullpen session on Friday with no issues. Sunday the soreness returned after he threw another session and that caused him to fly to Los Angeles on an extremely cautious basis. Makes sense the Dodgers would want to protect their $147MM investment, right? The good news is the MRI Greinke had on his right throwing elbow came back clean already. More good news came out of Los Angeles after Dr. Neal ElAttrache diagnosed Greinke with inflammation in the back of his right elbow, also confirming there was no structural damage.  Greinke was given a platelet-rich plasma injection in his elbow and some anti-inflammatory medication. The hope is he will be ready to resume throwing with the next few days. Greinke has already missed two spring starts, making him questionable for the start of the Dodgers season. The Dodgers currently have eight starting pitchers with guaranteed contracts, so I fully expect Don Mattingly and the Dodgers’ decision makers to err on the side of caution here.
