Greinke slated to start Wednesday

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Zack Greinke will make his return to a major league mound when the Los Angeles Dodgers wrap up a three-game series with the Washington Nationals on Wednesday, the team has announced.

Greinke, signed by the Dodgers to a lucrative six-year, $147-million contract during the offseason, has been on the disabled list since fracturing his left collarbone in a fight with San Diego Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin on April 11. It was just the former American League Cy Young Award winner's second start since joining the Dodgers as a free agent.

The standout right-hander did pitch 4 1/3 innings in a rehab assignment with Class A Rancho Cucamonga on Thursday, though he was tagged for eight runs (three earned) on six hits.

Greinke went 1-0 with a 1.59 earned run average and 10 strikeouts over his first two outings prior to the injury.
