Greinke needs surgery, expected to miss eight weeks

SAN DIEGO -- Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke will need surgery to repair his broken left collarbone, and the team says he is expected to return in eight weeks.

Greinke was hurt Thursday night when San Diego's Carlos Quentin charged the mound after he was hit on the arm by a pitch.

The Dodgers say that Greinke was examined Friday by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles and had a CT scan. ElAttrache and Dr. John Itamura will operate Saturday at White Memorial Hospital in Los Angeles to place a rod in the clavicle to stabilize and align the fracture.

Greinke, the 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner, signed a $147 million, six-year contract with the Dodgers during the offseason.
