    Greinke having elbow problems

    http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/blog/ey...in-los-angeles

    Greinke suffered discomfort Sunday when trying to play catch. And while the Dodgers said Greinke has had elbow issues in the past and that the current condition is not serious, they decided to ship Greinke back to LA for an exam "out of an abundance of caution."
    Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Yup. Sign that big contract, get injured, and take it easy the rest of your career. It must be nice.

    I really doubt that was his plan. No one wants to get hurt.

    Hard to believe Lohse is still a FA...and hasn't ditched his agent yet. Some reason I have a feeling we are going to see a lot of this kind of new from the Dodgers this year. Lots of big moves and big spending, but I dont foresee great results. Crawford still is an injury risk as well.

    I thought this was a thread about Greinke?

    Hopefully this doesn't turn out to be anything serious but elbow injuries always make me uneasy for a pitcher's health.

    The fact that he is going to throw again in a few days suggests to me that they checked him out and aren't too concerned with what they saw. If they were, he would be shut down for more than a few days.

    Of course, they could totally be missing something, and that does happen, but it seems they are comfortable with this being a very minor issue.

    That's good to hear. Thanks for providing some actual information about the real topic of this thread.
