Dodgers' Zack Greinke has a 'horrible' outing

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Zack Greinke, who was set back earlier this spring when he had to get a lubricating injection in his pitching elbow, said Friday he’s not 100 percent sure he’ll be ready for the start of the season. “We’ll see,” Greinke said. “I’ve thrown enough that I should be ready. If I’m not, it’s not because of lack of innings. It’s just, I don’t know, not getting ready fast enough.

Yasmani Grandal out to improve reputation for working with pitchers

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The San Diego Padres' top three starting pitchers preferred to work with another catcher, but Yasmani Grandal said he is determined to establish a good rapport with Clayton Kershaw and Co. The Los Angeles Dodgers traded Matt Kemp for Grandal in December because they like his bat and highly value his ability to frame pitches, but getting Dodgers starters comfortable pitching to Grandal might take some time. Grandal caught Kershaw for the second time this spring Thursday, and the results were good this time.
