Dodgers starting pitcher Zack Greinke Joey Votto Los Rojos Jersey Monday night said his right elbow felt fine after pitching in his first Major League exhibition game since March 1 and he should be ready to start the season on time.

“I should be. I think so,” he said. “I’ll definitely be there, if I can build up endurance. I need some improvement.”

Manager Don Mattingly agreed that Greinke has enough time to be ready to start the season active, with the Monday night start “a good outing for Zack to see Major League hitters, to see where he’s at and where he needs to go.”

Greinke wasn’t happy with a 64-pitch outing against his former club, the Kansas City Royals, that opened with the first two batters he faced singling and scoring and the last three batters he faced walking and scoring after he was lifted with the bases loaded and no outs in the fourth inning.

“I felt strong, but obviously not if I’m walking three in a row.  2013 Joey Votto Jersey.That’s not normal if I’m feeling good,” said Greinke, whose first Dodgers Spring Training was interrupted by the flu, then inflammation in the back of his right elbow that required an injection and cost him much of the month. “I thought I felt good, but the results didn’t imply that.”

Now Greinke is in catch-up mode to build sufficient stamina to be ready for the regular season. He allowed nine baserunners and five runs. His next start is Saturday’s Freeway Series finale, which puts him in line to start the fourth game of the season on April 5 if he’s ready.Joey Votto Jersey Cheap.

“My offspeed was bad today,” he said. “My fastball was OK [90-94 mph]. There’s a lot that needs to be improved. My fastball wasn’t great, the offspeed was below OK. The changeup was good. That’s one positive. The main thing was the offspeed was so bad, they didn’t have to worry about it. I can’t get a real judge on the fastball because there was nothing else to worry about.Joey Votto Los Rojos Jersey.

“This tells me I’ve got some work to do to build up arm strength and fine-tune the offspeed stuff. If my arm strength is there, I can make it work.”

Greinke pitched in a Minor League game five days earlier and said he could tell the difference in the opposition.

“Everything is different,” he said. “Even the Minor guys that had been in the big leagues had a presence about them.”

Mattingly Joey Votto Los Rojos Jersey not concerned with Kemp’s struggles

Dodgers center fielder Matt Joey Votto Los Rojos Jersey Kemp is batting .171 with Opening Day one week away, but after Monday’s 8-2 loss to the Royals, manager Don Mattingly said, “I’m OK with Matt.”

“He’s got bat speed,” Mattingly said of Kemp, who is coming off shoulder surgery. “He’s frustrated because he wants to get hits all the time. What I like is that he wants his hits, he’s feeling good enough, that intensity is there. Mentally he’s ready, and physically he looks ready.”

Kemp has one home run and six RBIs after going 0-for-3 with a sacrifice fly Monday night.

Johnson ruled strike three on a Matt Kemp check swing to end the top of the seventh inning and Mattingly came out to question why Johnson didn’t check with first-base umpire Alan Porter.

“Really, I wasn’t even mad,” said Mattingly. “You think he might want to check. It wasn’t so obvious that he didn’t need to check. He told me I was arguing balls and strikes. I said, ‘What are you going to do? Throw me out of a bleeping Spring Training game?’ And he did.”

Scouts Joey Votto Los Rojos Jersey evaluate Capuano as LA dangles starters

Scouts Joey Votto Los Rojos Jersey from Seattle, Pittsburgh, Texas and Cleveland trekked to a back field on Monday to watch Chris Capuano pitch seven scoreless innings in a Minor League game as the Dodgers step up efforts to move a surplus pitcher.

Barring a late injury or a setback to Zack Greinke or Chad Billingsley, the Dodgers can move any combination of veterans Capuano, Ted Lilly, Aaron Harang and Matt Guerrier. Many of those same scouts will be watching Harang when he starts Tuesday night.Joey Votto Alternate Red Los Rojos Jersey.

A trade would make it possible for the Dodgers to keep non-roster reliever Kevin Gregg, who has allowed one run in nine innings and has more career saves (144) than the rest of the relievers in camp combined.

Lilly would be the hardest to trade of the three starters. He is 37, coming off shoulder surgery and has a $12 million salary.2013 Joey Votto Jersey.

Harang is 34, earns $5 million this year with a mutual option for 2014 for $8 million or a $2 million buyout. He went 10-10 with a 3.61 ERA last year. Capuano is 34, left-handed and earns $6 million in 2013 with a mutual option for 2014 for $8 million or a $1 million buyout. He went 12-12 with a 3.72 ERA last year.Joey Votto Jersey Cheap.

Capuano allowed only three hits and struck out 11 while making 85 pitches in the Minor League game. He said he hasn’t been told when or where he would pitch next, but he’s happy that his last two outings have been “really good” mechanically and by results.

Joey Votto Los Rojos Jersey said he’s “curious” about how the Dodgers’ pitching surplus will work out, but he hasn’t worried about it.

“All my career, I’ve just worried about myself and let things play out,” Capuano said.

Greinke Joey Votto Los Rojos Jersey exits return healthy, eyeing improvement

Not even Zack Greinke Joey Votto Los Rojos Jersey, their former Cy Young Award winner, could slow down the Royals’ victory train.

The Royals won their fifth straight game, 8-2, over the Dodgers and Greinke on Monday night at Surprise Stadium and posted their 22nd Cactus League win, matching the club record set in 1999.

The Royals’ record is 22-6-1; the Dodgers are 11-17-3.

Greinke said his elbow felt fine after pitching in his first Major League exhibition game since March 1 and he should be ready to start the season on time.Joey Votto Jersey Cheap.

“I should be. I think so,” he said. “I’ll definitely be there, if I can build up endurance. I need some improvement.”

Greinke Joey Votto Los Rojos Jersey’s return to the Dodgers’ working ranks lasted fewer than four innings. His departure came after he began the fourth with three straight walks.

At the time, the Royals held a 2-1 lead, but the inning got even messier under the stewardship of reliever Matt Guerrier. Chris Getz started Guerrier’s night with an RBI single, and Alex Gordon’s swinging bunt to third base led to a Juan Uribe throwing error and two more runs. Mike Moustakas finished the four-run rally with another RBI single.

Greinke was charged with five runs on six hits and the three walks. Joey Votto Alternate Red Los Rojos Jersey. Back-to-back singles by Gordon and Alcides Escobar, plus Salvador Perez’s double cost Greinke two runs in the first inning.

Royals starter Wade Davis went five innings and gave up two runs (one earned) on four hits and three walks. He is 4-0 in four starts this spring.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly was ejected after the top of the seventh inning for arguing with plate umpire Anthony Johnson after Matt Kemp’s check-swing third strike. Kemp went 0-for-3, lowering his spring average to .171, but he did pick up his sixth RBI with a sac fly off Davis in the fifth, and reached on a run-scoring error in the third.

Dodgers reliever J.P. Howell struck out four Royals in a six-batter span in the fifth and sixth innings, and closer Brandon League worked a scoreless eighth inning.

Up next: One day after scouts watched Chris Capuano in a Minor League game against the Indians, they likely will return to watch Aaron Harang start for the Dodgers on Tuesday night against Colorado. The Dodgers are willing to deal at least one of their three extra starters, Ted Lilly being the third, as it would help them keep non-roster reliever Kevin Gregg.
