While Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke will learn his fate from team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles, the team has some good medical news on Friday as well. Hanley Ramirez gets the cast removed from his right hand on Friday, three weeks after thumb surgery.
"He's actually been able to do quite a bit of baseball stuff. Hopefully that will shorten the timetable for when he comes back, to be sharper," manager Don Mattingly said on Tuesday. "Whether that means seven weeks or seven and a half instead of eight weeks, we don't know."
The initial diagnosis for Ramirez was to miss eight weeks after his Mar. 22 surgery, which would put him in line for a May 17 return.
