Dodgers News: Injury Updates For Matt Kemp, Greinke And Stripling

It’s been just over two weeks since players first reported to Camelback Ranch and the Los Angeles Dodgers’ list of injured players is already beginning to grow.

Outfielder Matt Kemp hasn’t recovered from off-season ankle surgery and hasn’t been cleared to run yet, while starting pitcher Zack Greinke came out of his first start after just four pitches due to a right calf strain.

According to Ken Gurnick of Dodgers.com, Greinke’s injury may not keep him out long and Kemp’s MRI results have yet to be delivered:


Greinke came out yesterday as more of a precaution because it was his first spring start. If his injury keeps him out of any starts, it could put his chances of starting in Australia in jeopardy. He previously said that he had zero excitement for the trip, but did add that he would like to pitch in one of the two opening games. For Kemp, he’s been able to take batting practice this spring, but hasn’t been able to do much of anything else. The team is awaiting his MRI results to see if he’ll be cleared to run and begin a normal routine.

Also, according to Gurnick, Dodgers’ right-hander Ross Stripling will be evaluated after feeling some discomfort in his throwing arm:


Stripling threw two innings on Wednesday’s game against the Arizona Diamondbacks and allowed one run on five hits. He said that he felt some pain in his elbow previously, but didn’t say anything to trainers and then felt the pain again when he threw on Wednesday. He’s our sixth ranked prospect in the Dodgers minor league system
