The Dodgers called up Shawn Tolleson to replace Zack Greinke on the 25-man roster after their $147 million man suffered a broken collarbone when Carlos Quentin charged the mound during last night’s game in San Diego. Tolleson is a 25-year-old right-hander who got his first taste of the Majors last year, posting a 4.30 ERA in 37.2 innings of relief.

Greinke will have surgery to place a rod in his clavicle, reports Ken Rosenthal. He is expected to be out eight weeks, but Will Carroll calls that time frame “aggressive”. Carroll adds, “Dr. Neal ElAttrache does often have aggressive timelines and usually hits the goal.”

As Aaron pointed out earlier, Ted Lilly could take Greinke’s spot in the rotation.

    Colletti does something right for once by not trading Lilly or Capuano

      You can never have too much …. Colletti.

    I don’t know, something about Greinke just reeks of D-Bag. He has the personality that of a piece of plywood for starters.

      Looking for personality? I suggest TMZ. Lots of personality there.

    shouldn’t have hit quentin…

      Perhaps the guy that has gotten hit at a rate of 5% of his plate appearances in the last two seasons, and lead both the NL and AL without playing half the games, should stop crowding the plate? Or, at least act like a grown up when it does happen.

      • vilelabyrinth - Apr 13, 2013 at 9:32 PM

        I agree, it was a terribly stupid move by Quentin…my comment was a joke, I apologize..and listening to him afterwards makes it even worse.

    Greinke should not run his mouth after beaning someone, unless he wants to throw down. How did that turn out?

      “Beaning” means hitting the batter in the head. Quentin got hit on the arm.

    plunk-and-yap… a smart idea for no scrawny man ever. Greinke got dealt with.

  7. reeggss - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:41 PM

    100% agree

    Grienke from the neck up is kinda…eh, scary looking. Long neck, huge adams apple, sunken in face. Just a weird looking dude.

    • manchestermiracle - Apr 15, 2013 at 1:05 AM

      You sound like you were going to ask him for a date, but you’re having second thoughts….

    Grienke is the new Mr Glass. He’s obviously very fragile.
    The guy practically tripped over himself.

    Quenten is a puss. He didn’t try to swing just wanted to tackle him to the floor and do like the real “padres” do and molest em

    Sounds like the Padre fans are coming out of the woodwork this morning…all 10 of them. What’s the matter, giving up on the Chargers already? I know things look bad, but chin up, both teams suck and their respective seasons will be short and easily forgotten. And how about that NBA team you have down there, wow! Oh wait…

    • ch0psuey - Apr 13, 2013 at 11:39 PM

      How is your NFL team doing up there Slick? Ohhhh snap, the Chargers dont want to go up to smogville, sorry about that…
