Greinke hopes to return next week

The SportsXchange

Injured Los Angeles Dodgers ace Zack Greinke is targeting next week as his return to the rotation after making a rehab start Friday night for Class A Rancho Cucamonga.

Greinke, who is recovering from a broken collarbone, allowed eight runs and six hits with four strikeouts and no walks in 4 1/3 innings. Though the result was less-than-impressive, he had no setbacks, according to CBS Sports.

Greinke thinks he can start for the Dodgers on Wednesday against the Washington Nationals at Dodger Stadium. If he does, it would be a faster-than-expected recovery. He has been out since April 12 when he sustained the injury during a brawl against the San Diego Padres. His altercation with Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin after hitting him with a pitch resulted in the injury. Greinke was expected to miss six to eight weeks.

Greinke is 1-0 with a 1.59 ERA in two starts this season.
