Zack GreinkeZack Greinke made what may have been his final minor-league rehab start on Friday, allowing seven hits and two runs in five innings for Triple-A Nashville against Albuquerque.

Greinke threw 75 pitches, 50 for strikes. He walked one and struck out seven against the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate.

It was Greinke's third rehab start out of what was scheduled to be three starts in the minors.

"I know he's looking forward to this being his last one there," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke told MLB.com before the Brewers' game with the Astros. "Hopefully, it's a good outing that he gets a lot of innings in. To get up and down is what's important. I hope he doesn't run through his pitch count to where he's not getting up and down a lot.

The Brewers are looking at starting him either Wednesday or Thursday in Atlanta, limiting to 90 pitches in that outing. Wednesday would be five days rest, but Thursday would set up the rest of the team's rotation, and find a way to put Yovani Gallardo between the team's two left-handed starters, Chris Narveson and Randy Wolf.
