PHOENIX -- Zack Greinke might not be ready to pitch when the Dodgers open their season in three weeks. Greinke canceled a bullpen session that was scheduled for Saturday and is unlikely to take his next turn in the rotation Tuesday, according to Manager Don Mattingly. Greinke was removed from his first start of the exhibition season Thursday because of a strained right calf muscle. He played catch Friday with Stan Conte, the Dodgers' director of medical services. “I know he's feeling something in there,” Mattingly said. Mattingly wouldn't rule out Greinke for the season-opening two-game series in Australia, which will be played March 22-23.

PHOENIX -- Zack Greinke has canceled his Saturday bullpen session because of lingering problems with his right calf muscle, a development that reduces his chances of pitching in the Dodgers' season-opening series in Australia. Greinke strained the muscle Thursday in his first start of the exhibition season. He was removed from the game after making only four pitches. With Greinke's status uncertain, the Dodgers could start Hyun-Jin Ryu and Dan Haren in their two-game set against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Australia on March 22-23.

DENVER - Yasiel Puig was out of Dodgers lineup Tuesday, but club officials were optimistic that the discomfort behind his right knee wasn't anything serious. “I think if this were a playoff game, Yasiel would try to play in it,” Manager Don Mattingly said. Puig was removed from the Dodgers' 10-8 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Monday because of stiffness in the top of his calf muscle. That part of the leg has been bothering him since the Dodgers visited Miami last month.

Reporting from Cincinnati Manny Ramirez, who overcame a drug scandal to reestablish himself as an offensive force, might have encountered the one obstacle that he can't conquer. Age. The 37-year-old Ramirez pulled up as he ran down the first base line, reaching his destination but immediately removing himself from the game with what was later described by the Dodgers as a strained right calf muscle. The end result of Ramirez's sixth-inning single was one of many problems for the Dodgers that led to their 8-5 defeat to the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday night at Great American Ball Park.
