Los Angeles Dodgers Should Still Be Worried About Zack Greinke
The worst news that the Los Angeles Dodgers could get would be an injury to one of the star starting pitchers. The Dodgers got that news this week as Zack Greinke went down with right elbow inflammation.
Greinke may end up missing the beginning of the season with this injury and if I’m the Dodgers, I’m praying that Greinke isn’t hurt even worse. The examination on Greinke didn’t show any structural damage, but you can’t be too careful in this day and age.
Greinke signed a huge deal in the off-season, and any injury is a setback for a team that is expected to win the National League West this year. There is still another three weeks until the regular season starts but if Greinke has to sit for a week and then restart his throwing routine, I don’t see how he can be fully ready to go by April 1.
The team thinks that it won’t set him back, but I don’t trust any one opinion in this situation.
I have always thought that this was a season where Greinke had to prove that he was one of the top ten pitchers in all of MLB after signing such a huge contract. This isn’t starting well for him because no one is going to want to pay a pitcher $25 million with a bum elbow.
It is probably nothing though, and just something that can be fixed with medication. I’m still concerned about it and hoping that the next step isn’t a more serious elbow injury that requires surgery.
