Dodgers receive positive updates on Greinke, Kemp

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Dodgers received more good news on the recoveries of pitcher Zack Greinke and outfielder Matt Kemp.

Greinke threw a bullpen session Monday and apparently felt no discomfort in his right calf muscle. He then went through some fielding drills and could pitch in an exhibition game this week, perhaps as early as Wednesday, although club officials are wary of rushing him back.

Kemp felt well enough after his first intrasquad game action Sunday to play in another game on Monday, going 1-for-5 with a walk, sacrifice fly, two strikeouts and two RBIs. The sac fly and one strikeout were against 17-year-old prospect Julio Urias. Kemp has had no pain in the repaired left ankle.

Manager Don Mattingly said left-hander Onelki Garcia, recovering slowly from elbow and knee operations, is on a restricted throwing program.
