Zack Greinke goes on the paternity list

10 Comments

Zack Greinke won’t have a chance to extend his scoreless innings streak against the Mets, which seems like an easy task. But he has a good reason for it:

The paternity list thing allows the Dodgers to replace him for three days, after which he’ll presumably and, for the sake of an easy delivery of Greinke Jr., hopefully return.

That would put him on schedule to chase Orel Hershisher’s scoreless innings record against the A’s, at home, on Tuesday.

LOS ANGELES — Jeff Samardjiza has been placed on the 10-day injured list by the San Francisco Giants due to right shoulder impingement.

Manager Gabe Kapler said before Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers that the right-hander told trainers and the coaching staff that he felt like wasn’t able to get the arm loose during Friday’s game. Samardjiza is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Saturday.

Samardjiza went four-plus innings and allowed six runs on seven hits in a 7-2 loss to the Dodgers. He is 0-2 with a 9.88 ERA in three starts.

The Giants have recalled left-hander Andrew Suarez from their alternate training site, but Kapler said he hasn’t finalized a revised starting rotation.
