Dodgers right-hander and No. 2 man Zack Greinke this spring has been limited by a strained right calf, and now manager Don Mattingly says he likely won't be stretched out in time to pitch in the season-opening series against the Diamondbacks in Australia, which begins March 22.

"From a standpoint of having 90 pitches, he won't be there," Mattingly told MLB.com's Ken Gurnick.

As Gurnick notes, Mattingly will likely select his starters for the two-game set from a group that includes ace Clayton Kershaw along with Hyun-Jin Ryu and Dan Haren.
