Wed, 20 Jul 2016 19:00:02 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke (oblique) played catch from a distance of 120 to 150 feet Tuesday, July 19. He could have a bullpen workout in the coming days, according to manager Chip Hale.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke throwing off mound

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:28:00 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Greinke went 7-0 with a 2.18 ERA and limited opposing hitters to a .224 on-base percentage through his eight starts prior to his injury-shortened outing June 28. Continue to stash Greinke in all fantasy formats and check back for updates.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke plays catch

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 15:21:53 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke (oblique) played catch again Tuesday, July 19, but manager Chip Hale said it's unlikely Greinke makes his return against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: The D-backs are understandably being cautious with their best pitcher, who is dealing with a tricky injury for hurlers. After a bad start with his new team, Greinke has rebounded nicely and sports a 3.62 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 7.5 K/9. His owners will want to immediately return him to their lineups when he's back, but patience is required.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke throws

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 09:29:40 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke (oblique) played catch from 60 feet Thursday, July 14, and he's hopeful to start July 25 or July 26 against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: They could opt for him to make a rehab start, but his return seems to be in a matter of days. Keep him stashed in all formats.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke placed on DL

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 10:27:15 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke (oblique) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, July 3, because of a left oblique strain. The team also activated OF Rickie Weeks from the bereavement list.

Fantasy Tip: The Diamondbacks hope Greinke will be able to return shortly after the All-Star break, so it does not appear like he is dealing with a serious injury. Zack Godley likely will be recalled from the minor leagues to take his spot in the rotation. Godley has gone 4-6 with a 3.68 ERA in 12 starts for Class AAA Reno and would not be a strong fantasy option. Weeks does not have much value outside NL-only leagues.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke's status still in limbo

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 15:15:36 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke (oblique) is feeling better Friday, July 1, but there is still no decision on whether he will require a stint on the disabled list, according to manager Chip Hale. Hale noted Greinke will not start against the San Diego Padres Monday, July 4, though.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke went 4-0 with a 1.63 ERA and 31 strikeouts through 38 2/3 innings over six starts in June, so he is clearly turning his season around after a rough start in the desert. Stay tuned for updates, but it appears Greinke isn't dealing with a long-term injury.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke could land on DL

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 17:01:53 -0700

Updating previous reports, the Arizona Diamondbacks will wait until Friday, July 1, before deciding whether to place SP Zack Greinke (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list. He left his most recent start Tuesday, June 28, against the Philadelphia Phillies, due to tightness in his left oblique.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, it remains uncertain if Greinke will make his next scheduled start versus the San Diego Padres Monday, July 4, so keep checking back for updates on his status. The 32-year-old right-hander went 4-0 through six starts this month and is 8-1 with a 2.64 ERA in 11 outings since May 1.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke's injury not too serious

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 10:53:11 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke's (oblique) injury isn't believed to be too serious. Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani missed 10 weeks after an oblique strain in spring training, but the Diamondbacks don't think Greinke's injury is as serious.

Fantasy Tip: It was terrible timing for an injury for Greinke owners, as the right-hander had been 4-0 with a 1.63 ERA and 31 K's in 38 2/3 innings over six June starts. Oblique injuries are often tricky for pitchers, so expect Greinke to at least miss a start and possibly land on the DL through the All-Star break.

Diamondbacks | Zack Greinke has oblique issue

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 04:29:33 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke (oblique) left his start after two innings Tuesday, June 28, due to tightness in his oblique muscle.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for further updates on his condition. If it's just tightness, Greinke may be in danger of missing a start for the first time since 2013. If it turns out to be more, that could be a disaster for the Diamondbacks. Right now it looks like manager Chip Hale removed Greinke for precautionary reasons.
