Last season, newly-signed Los Angeles Dodger Zack Greinke missed a month early in the season after San Diego Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin charged the mound, breaking Greinke’s collarbone.

With spring training in its early stages, Greinke already has sustained another injury scare, as the ace left his first start of spring training after throwing just four pitches.

Greinke left the game with right calf issues, but it is considered a “precautionary measure,” according to Dodgers reporter Alanna Rizzo. Greinke came back from last year’s injury to throw 177 innings, finishing 15-4 with a 2.63 ERA.

Oh yeah...and a .328 batting average for a pitcher. I bet a lot of teams would happily put this little girl on their roster.

Well for a little girl he pitches pretty well when he is healthy.  15 and 4, 2.63 era.  I think the Dodgers need that.

This little girl shouldn't even be in the big leagues. Did you see what Carlos Quentin did to him?
