Good news out of Dodgers camp Monday from MLB.com beat reporter Ken Gurnick …
Greinke threw a bullpen session Monday and apparently felt no discomfort in his right calf muscle. He then went through some fielding drills and could pitch in an exhibition game this week, perhaps as early as Wednesday, although club officials are wary of rushing him back.
Greinke has already been ruled out for the Dodgers’ season-opening series in Australia on March 22-23, but he could be ready to start the club’s first game back in the states on March 30 against the Padres. Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu are starting against the Diamondbacks at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Greinke suffered a right calf strain in his Cactus League debut, but it’s looking like a minor road bump now.
The 30-year-old right-hander registered a 2.63 ERA across 177 2/3 innings last season for Los Angeles.
