GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Anxiety used to consume Zack Greinke (GREHN'-kee), affect nearly every aspect of his life.
Now he barely thinks about it.
With a better understanding of anxiety and with the help of medication to curb it, Greinke heads into his first season with the Los Angeles Dodgers with little apprehension.
Considering the Dodgers are one of baseball's most well-known teams playing in one of the nation's largest population centers, that's a big step for a player who left baseball in 2006 due to social anxiety disorder.
The 29-year-old right-hander still doesn't particularly like crowds or having to speak with the media, but he's much more comfortable in situations that might have stressed him out earlier in his career.
