Greinke Gets Ready for Return

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Zack Greinke threw a second bullpen session on Saturday in his latest step to return from a cracked rib.

Greinke says everything felt good and that he's working as fast as he can to get ready.

There's been no timetable for his first appearance since being part of a six-player trade in December with Kansas City, but the 2009 AL Cy Young winner will need a rehab assignment.

Greinke hurt himself playing basketball and says he's still not throwing at 100 percent.

Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke says he stood in as a batter while watching Greinke throw and that both Greinke's fastball and breaking ball were strong in the session.
