Though Zack Greinke’s MRI showed no damage to his elbow, the All-Star right-hander had his scheduled start pushed back two days. Manager Don Mattingly expressed his belief Greinke’s issue with his elbow won’t force him to the disabled list and the pitcher added some unsettling remarks.

Greinke said he believes he can pitch to 100 percent of his capabilities, but doesn’t believe he will feel 100 percent this season. Irritation and soreness in the right elbow is a similar issue Greinke struggled with in Spring Training of 2013.

With an ailing Greinke, the Dodgers once formidable pitching rotation would have question marks. Hyun-Jin Ryu is on the mend from a glute injury, Josh Beckett may not pitch again this season and Dan Haren remains inconsistent.

This season, Greinke is 12-8 with a 2.75 over 25 starts. He was also selected to his second career All-Star game.
