Zack Greinke tested his elbow during a shortened bullpen session on Thursday. Manager Don Mattingly said he is fine to start Saturday.
After suffering from some elbow discomfort for almost a month, the Dodgers decided to move Greinke's next scheduled start to Saturday. With a scheduled day off on Monday, the Dodgers were able to move his start without having to skip him fully in the starting rotation. Unless the pain becomes a serious problem down the stretch expect Greinke to continue skipping bullpen sessions to keep the pain down and remain in the mix as the Dodgers make a playoff push.

Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
