Zack Greinke took the mound for a 25-pitch simulated game yesterday and afterward sounded more or less as optimistic as Zack Greinke tends to get about such things when speaking to reporters:

It went OK. I threw and I was healthy, so that’s good. It was nothing special, it was in the batting cages, so you couldn’t really get as good a feel for it as you normally would.

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke indicated that Greinke is privately a lot more optimistic about a speedy recovery, saying: “He’s trying to come real fast and I think trainer Roger Caplinger will have to look at that so we just don’t let him go full-go, because that’s what he’d like to do.”

George Von Benko of MLB.com reports that Greinke is slated to throw another simulated game before potentially being cleared for a minor-league rehab assignment at Triple-A. There’s still a chance he’ll be ready to return from a fractured rib by the end of the month.

    Can we find a less “murder-y” picture of Greinke to use from here on out?!

    This one gives me the creeps…
