    • Greinke took a no-decision Friday when he worked six scoreless innings in an extra-innings loss to Oakland. He allowed five hits and one walk while striking out five. Greinke was cruising when he was removed after 84 pitches. Endurance was an issue earlier in the season for Greinke, but he had thrown 83 pitches in his previous start and held the A's in check Friday. It was a curious decision by manager Dusty Baker, who had rejiggered his starting rotation to have Greinke start Friday's series opener against Oakland, a series the manager described as meaningful. Greinke's next start comes Tuesday at home against San Francisco.

    • Greinke is scheduled to make his next start Friday against the Athletics, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports. Greinke was originally scheduled to pitch Thursday's series finale against the Diamondbacks, but he'll get an extra day of rest while Brandon Bielak takes the mound. The veteran right-hander has allowed five runs through nine innings (two starts) this season.

    • Greinke allowed two runs on three hits and didn't issue a walk over 5.2 innings during Saturday's extra-inning loss to the Angels. He struck out four and didn't factor in the decision. The veteran right-hander didn't allow a baserunner through five innings, but the Angels strung together three singles and a sacrifice fly during the sixth inning to tally a pair of runs. Greinke struggled in his season debut and lasted only 3.1 innings, but he appeared noticeably sharper during his second outing. Monday's scheduled off day allows the Astros to keep him on a five-day schedule to potentially pitch Thursday at Arizona.

    • Greinke allowed three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two over 3.1 innings in Sunday's loss to the Mariners. He didn't factor into the decision. Although Greinke struggled in his first start of 2020, he picked up a no-decision in Sunday's high-scoring contest. The 36-year-old will be leaned on as one of the most proven arms in the rotation in the coming weeks with Justin Verlander (forearm) set to miss time. Greinke posted a 2.93 ERA and 0.98 ERA over 208.2 innings in 33 starts with the Diamondbacks and Astros last season. He'll attempt to turn things around on the road Saturday against the Angels.

    • Greinke threw 80 pitches in a simulated game Tuesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Getting to 80 pitches in his final tuneup outing suggests that Greinke should be able to come close to 100 pitches in his first outing of the regular season. While he's seemingly the Astros' second-best starter, he lines up to start the third game of the year Sunday against the Mariners, with Lance McCullers, who made his final preseason appearance Monday, in line to start Saturday.
