Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke (elbow) threw his first bullpen session since an elbow injection Tuesday, Feb. 24, and he said he's not worried about the health of his right elbow. "It's the same as I did last year, at the end of the year, at the beginning of the year, in the offseason and the last time I talked to you guys," said Greinke. "There's always a little bit of concern." Greinke had received a lubricating injection of hyaluronic acid, which he's had in previous springs, in order to aid arthritic joints. He threw 24 fastballs Tuesday in what he said was "normal bullpen percentage" intensity. Greinke said he's "maybe three or four days behind some people. That's not a big deal."
Fantasy Tip: Greinke's elbow concern shouldn't concern you too much when drafting. Greinke should continue to sit firmly in the middle of the group of pitchers that is acceptable for a No. 1 pitcher for a fantasy baseball squad.
