Greinke Sidelined, but it's not Expected to be Serious

As you may already know, Zack Greinke experienced some discomfort in his throwing elbow over the weekend, so out of an abundance of caution he will miss todays start.  Per Ken Gurnick at

Greinke missed a bullpen session nine days ago because of elbow stiffness, missed a start four days ago because of the flu, then threw an impressive bullpen session on Friday.

But the discomfort in the back of his elbow has persisted and -- with seven other starters in the current rotation -- club officials are considering holding him out for precautionary reasons.
We know now that Zack will definitely miss todays scheduled start based on a tweet from the Dodgers this morning.

After reading that you've got to be a little worried.  On the other hand, based on early reports this move appears to be a precautionary.  From a Bill Shaikin tweet:

Unfortunately, as a Dodger fan I am always prepared to be shocked.  Hopefully, we can laugh about this episode when the season starts.
