Zack Greinke made his first minor league rehab start with High-A Brevard County earlier tonight and things couldn’t have gone much better.
According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, Greinke struck out four over three shutout innings and retired nine out of the 10 batters he faced. Granted, we can’t take much from results against a bunch of low-level minor leaguers, but Greinke “felt great” during the outing and worked with 91-94 mph velocity on his fastball.
Ron Roenicke reiterated Monday that Greinke will need at least three minor league rehab starts before being activated from the disabled list, so he’s unlikely to make his long-awaited Brewers’ debut until May 4 against the Braves at the earliest.
