Dodgers News And Rumors: Australians Upset Over Greinke’s Comments

Zack GreinkeAs the Los Angeles Dodgers continue to prepare for their season opener in Australia, Zack Greinke sparked somewhat of a firestorm with unflattering comments regarding the upcoming trip to Sydney.  The 30-year-old pitcher, who is set to begin his second season with the Dodgers, said he has no excitement with respect to the international games.

Naturally, Greinke’s comments made their way to Australian officials who have organized the games and reports indicate they’re upset with the pitcher’s remarks. The officials have reportedly spoken with the Dodgers and MLB, but have yet to issue any public statements.

Dodgers president Stan Kasten did some damage control on Sunday and attempted to clarify Greinke’s remarks.  According to Kasten, Greinke is a pitcher who heavily relies on his routine, which will be altered with the Dodgers needing to end their spring training early.  Kasten further went on to state that as a whole, the Dodgers organization is looking forward to the trip.

Despite Greinke’s comments, the likelihood of him pitching in one of the two games is a near certainty, as Don Mattingly has expressed an interest in limiting Clayton Kershaw’s workload early in the season.
