Dodgers' Greinke misses scheduled start
SPRING TRAINING ASSOCIATED PRESS,
Zack Greinke was scratched from his spring training start for the Dodgers on Monday, went to Los Angeles and was diagnosed with inflammation in the back of his right elbow.
The Dodgers said the 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner was examined by Dr. Neal ElAttrache and that an MRI in Arizona last week "showed there was no structural damage to the ligaments or tendons of the elbow."
Greinke received an injection of platelet-rich plasma and anti-inflammatory medication, according to the team. The Dodgers said the right-hander will rest for 2-to-3 days and then go on a progressive throwing program.
Jeter set to play short: Derek Jeter is just about ready to play in the field for the first time this year.
Jeter went 0 for 2 in his second game as a designated hitter since returning from a broken ankle, a 4-0 win for the New York Yankees over the St. Louis Cardinals.
"That's the plan as of now," he said.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi planned to talk with Jeter on Tuesday.
"If he comes out OK, we're going to throw him in there," Girardi said.
Markakis scheduled for MRI: Baltimore Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis was scheduled to have an MRI Monday afternoon and hopes the neck spasms that he has been coping with since March 3 aren't anything serious.
He said Sunday he thinks the MRI is "probably more of a precaution to see what's going on in there and identify exactly what it is that's bothering me."
The results of the MRI were expected today.
