Dodgers' Greinke labors through six innings, earns win vs. Giants
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke needed 110 pitches to get through six innings Wednesday but was able to earn the win in his team's 7-3 victory over the Giants.

Spotted to a 4-1 after the end of the first inning thanks to three Dodgers home runs, Greinke (4-0) gave up a home run of his own in the fourth but was able to make it through six innings to pick up a quality start. He gave up seven hits and two walks while striking out six.

Greinke owns a 1.93 ERA and 27:7 K:BB ratio in 32 2/3 innings. He's slated to face the Brewers in Milwaukee Wednesday.

Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke to start Friday, not Thursday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke will make his next start Friday instead of Thursday against the Giants, manager Don Mattingly said per the L.A. Times.

Mattingly wants to be able to keep Greinke fresh early in the season and has nothing to do with San Francisco's early struggles, according to the report.

"It's too early for any of that," Mattingly said. "This is really just our guys getting rest."

Greinke is 2-0 in three starts this season with a 1.83 ERA and 14 strikeouts.

Dodgers RHP Greinke good enough for second win Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Good was good enough Saturday night for Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke.

Greinke was dominant in his first two starts this season. He was merely good against the hot-hitting Rockies and that earned him his second win.

Only a two-run homer by DJ LeMahieu in the seventh inning really marred his performance. He finished having yielded three earned runs on five hits in 6 2/3 inning with one walk and three strikeouts. His ERA nearly doubled to a still-wonderful 1.83.

"He was typical Zack," manager Don Mattingly said after the start, per MLB.com. "He located, he changed speeds. He had a couple quick innings in the middle that kept his pitch count down. He got sick a couple days ago and we sent him home early yesterday."

Greinke has now allowed just 12 hits and two walks in 19 2/3 innings. He will try to continue his fine start Thursday in San Francisco.

Pitch framing has Dodgers aces, catcher A.J. Ellis talking
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The new emphasis on pitch framing as a possible valuable skill for catchers has spurred debate among players at that position, as well as the pitchers who throw to them.

Among those who have entered into the conversation is Dodgers standout right-hander Zack Greinke, who is known as a sophisticated analysist, but is not convinced that pitch framing is a skill set that can make or break a catcher.

"I believe that some catchers are better at framing pitches," Greinke told the Orange County Register. "But I'm not a believer that it's as valuable as it's being made out to be. It's part of a catcher's skill set. It's not the most important part. Just because he frames good doesn't mean he's a good catcher."

Teammate and stud southpaw Clayton Kershaw takes a similar view.

"You just want strikes called strikes. ... I gues I'm in the middle," he offered. "I don't roll my eyes at it and I don't pay a whole lot of attention to it either."

Their catcher, A.J. Ellis, also didn't pay a whole lot of attention to it at one time. But he does now. Metrics that showed him lacking as a pitch framer, as well as the wave of the future, forced him to change his outlook.

"I was motivated by the realization that that aspect of catching was becoming highly valued by this new wave of analytical front-office types," said Ellis, who spent time in the offseason working on framing pitches. "And I know that deficiency in the long run could affect my future employment."

Ellis added that "every metric out there tells me that I'm very deficient in that area" and that the Dodgers front office personnel advised him of their awareness of it during spring training.

One must wonder what umpires think about the new pitch framing metric. After all, they believe they're calling a strike based on the zone rather than how a catcher frames the pitch.
