GLENDALE, Ariz. — Pitcher Zack Greinke received a “lubricating injection” in his right elbow and is expected to be back on his normal routine soon.
Pitcher Sergio Santos, who was sent home yesterday due to illness, is back. So is third baseman Juan Uribe, who rolled into camp in a massive Hummer four days ahead of the mandatory reporting date for position players:
I caught up with pitcher Chris Withrow, who’s been here since Feb. 10 rehabbing from surgery on a herniated disk in December. Back in January at FanFest, Withrow said there was no timetable for him to resume throwing. He’s throwing now but with many restrictions: from his knees, from a short distance, and not exerting himself. “Just to get my shoulder moving,” he said.
Don Mattingly is about to address the media.
Adrian Gonzalez won his fourth career Gold Glove award yesterday. The Dodgers first baseman added to his resume today.
Gonzalez was named the Wilson defensive first baseman of the year, and Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe was named the Wilson defensive third baseman of the year.
Uribe also won the award last year. Unlike the Gold Glove awards (but like the Fielding Bible Awards), the Wilson awards cover both leagues.
Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and pitcher Zack Greinke won Gold Glove Awards at their positions Tuesday.
Greinke, 31, had never won a Gold Glove award before in his career. Greinke made one error in 59 chances this season, a .983 fielding percentage.
Gonzalez had won the award three times before in his career, twice with the San Diego Padres and once with the Boston Red Sox. No Dodgers first baseman had won a Gold Glove award since Steve Garvey in 1977.
Gonzalez gets an additional $100,000 from the Dodgers for winning the award, part of a bonus clause that was written into his 2012 contract with the Boston Red Sox.
Juan Uribe was a finalist for a Gold Glove award at third base. He fell short in the balloting to defending winner Nolan Arenado of the Colorado Rockies. Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw was a finalist to win the award along with Greinke.
