Zach Greinke injury news has come out of Los Angeles Dodgers Spring Training. Greinke has an inflamed elbow, possibly raising a lot of concerns about the recently signed pitcher. According to a report from ESPN on Monday (March 11), Greinke received an injection of platelet-rich plasma and anti-inflammatory medication. He will now have to rest two or three days before he can get back into a program to help his arm.
This news has to make fans and the front office really nervous about how the Dodgers signed Greinke to a $147 million, six-year contract during the offseason. If he is lost for any span of time due to his arm, this could be horrible news for the franchise. At this point, though, the team doesn't seem outwardly worried that it will be a long-term issue, so fantasy baseball owners might want to take a deep breath as well.
The best part of the Zach Greinke injury news is that examinations and test have shown that there was no structural damage to the ligaments or tendons of the elbow. That's an important fact from this situation, possibly meaning that he can just rest the arm and get back on track with his training and strength development after just a few days of rest. At least that is what the Los Angeles Dodgers and many fantasy baseball fans are hoping.
