Cleared to begin throwing less than three weeks after breaking his left collarbone, Zack Greinke played catch from 90 feet yesterday and reported no problems.

“It’s still a little achy here and there, but nothing worse than what you would expect, I think,” Greinke told Austin Laymance of MLB.com. “You try not to have setbacks but at the same time do what you can.”

According to Laymance the return timetable is mid-June, which matches the initial estimates following surgery to stabilize the bone by inserting a metal rod.
