Zack GreinkeDespite officially being placed on the disabled list, Saturday was a good day for the Brewers' Zack Greinke, who played catch for the first time since he was shut down with a cracked rib.

"He said he felt great," manager Ron Roenicke told reporters, including Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "The pain is gone."

Greinke's DL trip is retroactive to March 22, meaning he could technically come off of the DL a week into the season, but that's highly unlikely. The team won't have any kind of timetable until he gets back on the mound, and that's likely a couple of days away.

Greinke suffered the injury early in the spring playing basketball.

The team also officially put LaTroy Hawkins (shoulder) and Manny Parra (back) on the DL, also retroactive to March 22. Right fielder Corey Hart (oblique) and catcher Jonathan Lucroy (finger) will also start the season on the DL.

With Greinke on the disabled list, the Brewers are expected to break camp with four starters and decide on another starter when they need one, April 6 against the Braves.

The Brewers  better get off to a good start, or he will be mailing it in by the All Star break.

Yeah. we get it already!  I've been listening to guys like you repeat the same thing over and over since the trade in December.  He "quit" on the Royals last year and you want him to fall flat on his face.  Unless you can come up with something new about the guy, me and most Brewer fans don't want to hear it.  We know he comes with some baggage.  I can deal with it.  Why can't you?
