As scheduled, Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke underwent surgery on Saturday to repair his broken left collarbone. Doctors inserted a metal rod to stabilize Greinke’s clavicle during the 90-minute procedure and are expecting him to be out for the next eight weeks. This according to beat writer Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angles Times.

Greinke suffered the fracture Thursday when he was charged by Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin. Quentin was suspended eight games by Major League Baseball and fined an undisclosed amount.

Greinke signed a six-year, $147 million contract with the Dodgers this winter and owns a 1.59 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and 10/1 K/BB ratio through his first 11 1/3 innings with the team. He’ll be back in mid-June.

The Brewers announced on Tuesday that reliever Boone Logan has been designated for assignment and starter Freddy Peralta has been recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs. Peralta will start on Tuesday evening against the Pirates, opposite Jameson Taillon at PNC Park.

Logan, 33, has struggled this season, serving up seven runs on 15 hits and 10 walks with 14 strikeouts in 10 2/3 innings. The lefty inked a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Brewers in January, but he missed the first six weeks of the season with a triceps injury.

Peralta, 22, made his major league debut last month, making a stellar start against the Rockies at Coors Field. He struck out 13 batters over 5 2/3 scoreless innings. He made another, less successful start against the Twins before heading back to the minors. With Colorado Springs, Peralta owns a 2.75 ERA with 84 strikeouts and 27 walks over 59 innings.
