SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke threw four innings in a minor league game Wednesday without any trouble in his tender right elbow.
Greinke had not pitched in 2 1/2 weeks because of discomfort in his elbow. The righty had a platelet-rich plasma injection to help his recovery.
Greinke threw 42 pitches against minor leaguers from the Chicago White Sox.
The former Cy Young winner signed a $147 million, six-year contract with the Dodgers as a free agent in the offseason. He has pitched in just two major league spring-training games for a total of five innings.
If there are no setbacks, Greinke would start April 5 at home against Pittsburgh.
