Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke has thrown off a mound for the first time since being shut down March 11 with inflammation in his right elbow. Now the team waits to see how he feels today, the day after Greinke threw 38 pitches at the team’s Glendale, Ariz., facility. Greinke, who signed a six-year, $147 million contract Dec. 9, is projected to be the Dodgers’ No. 2 starter. But it's not clear whether he'll be ready for his first scheduled start April 2 against San Francisco at Dodger Stadium. "I'm assuming it's going to be fine and that I'm on track," he said. "But I'm not sure." The Dodgers are waiting to see how his elbow feels Monday. "Then, we'll be able to get a better indication of where we're going, whether he's sore or not," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. The session was his first since his right elbow was injected in Los Angeles with plasma rich in platelets, and he threw all of his pitches. Greinke missed a bullpen session March 3 because of discomfort in the elbow and was scratched from a start March 6 because of flu-like symptoms. He has pitched just five innings in two starts this spring.
