Zack Greinke threw a bullpen session Monday and apparently felt no discomfort in his right calf muscle. He then went through some fielding drills and could pitch in an exhibition game this week.
The Dodgers have already said the Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-Jin Ryu will get the two starts in Australlia, so you will have to wait to the Dodgers return stateside before Greinke would get a start, which may not be a bad thing as it gives him extra time to get right with the hopes that it will eliminate the chance of re-injuring the calf muscle.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Rajon Rondo has agreed to a one-year deal with the Kings.
There was some late buzz that Rondo could join the Lakers, but instead he'll sign with the Sacramento Kings for a one-year, $10 million deal. Rondo's season fell apart in 2014 after being traded to Dallas, but expectations will still be high for the point guard due to his track record. That being said, last year's meltdown for Rondo was jarring, as his assists per game fell from 10.8 to 6.5, and his rebounds went from 7.5 to 4.5 per game. Hopefully Rondo will become better acclimated with his team in Dallas, as if he can get it together, Rondo could be a key piece in his new team's playoff bid. Analysis: Ben Diamond
Patrick Beverley has agreed to a four-year deal with the Rockets.
The 26-year old will return to Houston after spending his first three seasons with the team, averaging 8.9 points, 3 assists, and 4.2 rebounds per game over his tenure. Last season was his best as a professional, and Beverley will look to earn an expanded role in the backcourt next season after averaging 30.8 minutes last season. The four-year deal is worth $25 million. Analysis: Ben Diamond
