PHOENIX--Zack Greinke's strange spring got a little stranger Wednesday when he was scratched from his scheduled start against Mexico's World Baseball Classic team.
Stephen Fife will start in Greinke's place.
Greinke, who skipped a bullpen session Sunday because of tightness in his right foreman, complained Wednesday of flu-like symptoms. He is at least the fourth Dodger to miss a game with illness.
Luis Cruz missed two days last week after spending time at an urgent care facility with an apparent case of food poisoning. And left-hander Ted Lilly was scratched from his schedule appearance Tuesday because of sickness.
Greinke, who signed a record six-year, $147-million free-agent deal with the Dodgers in December, has pitched twice this spring, allowing two runs and six hits in five innings.
