Zack Greinke's calf feels no different than it did yesterday. Manager Don Mattingly said the team is going to be real cautious with him and no timetable for his return.
Well that's a bummer. The injury was deemed minor in the grand scheme of things as it didn't involve the shoulder or the elbow, but a lingering calf problem can just as easily derail a season. The Dodgers are justified in their cautious approach, so expect Greinke to be idle for more than just a few days here. How this will affect his status for Opening Day is yet to be determined.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Yunel Escobar said his groin is improving and will work out prior to Sunday's game.
The MRI on Escobar came back clean, so that's great news. He's still not 100-percent though and will continue to be held out. Escobar believes that he can avoid the DL and will work out prior to the game to prove it. Obviously though, if he doesn't show the improvement in the workout, the team could hold him out a little while longer. The club can go with Danny Espinosa at third and Dan Uggla at second. They also called up Emanuel Burris who can play all over the infield. Analysis: Howard Bender
