Brewers manager Ron Roenicke told John Schlegel of MLB.com yesterday that it’s unlikely Greinke will be ready by April 16, a date which was previously considered a best-case scenario.
“If he’s ready at that point, I’m going to be really happy,” Roenicke said. “I just don’t know if he’s going to be ready then. I think we’re not really planning on that early.”
Roenicke said that Greinke has been doing cardiovascular training, elevating his heart rate to the point where he feels the rib injury. He has yet to even play catch, so he’ll essentially need to start from scratch once he’s ready to actually throw.
The Brewers are having a hard enough time trying to fill the void left by Greinke, so they’d be in pretty rough shape if Shaun Marcum‘s shoulder tightness also results in a DL stint.
