Dodgers manager Don Mattingly confirmed to reporters this evening that Zack Greinke will return from the 15-day disabled list to start at home on Wednesday night against the visiting Nationals.

This according to Ken Gurnick of

Greinke has been on the shelf since fracturing his left collarbone in a wrestling match with Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin on April 11. He surrendered eight runs — three earned — over 4 1/3 innings Friday in a rehab start at Triple-A Rancho Cucamonga, but his clavicle is healed and the Dodgers are desperate.

Greinke signed a six-year, $147 million free agent contract with Los Angeles this past offseason after posting a 3.48 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 200/54 K/BB ratio across 212 1/3 innings (34 starts) in 2012 between the Brewers and Angels.

The Dodgers are 9-18 in his absence (not including tonight’s result).

    I’d be willing to bet, now, that Greinke never throws at Quentin, ever again.

    I’m willing to, bet now that, you haven’t a clue as to how to properly use, a comma when writing.

    Not sure how much impact Greinke would have had on the current slide if he’d been healthy. Hitters not hitting and crappy defense won’t be fixed with his return. Kershaw is the bright spot in the rotation. He fanned 11 in the Dodgers’ 2-0 win over the Nats. Of the current starters he’s the only one with a winning record.

    Neither Kemp nor Ethier is hitting worth a damn and those two lead the team in strikeouts. 26th in baseball with 28 errors, 28th in batting, 20th in pitching. Nope, Greinke coming back ain’t gonna fix all that.

      It is obvious to me that you have not yet heard of Hyun-Jin Ryu ERA W-L SO WHIP
      3.40 4-2 51 1.21

    Maybe that’s why Kemp gave away his shirt, hat and shoes. He’s trying to change his luck.
