SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Zack Greinke will arrive at Spring Coaching a couple days after the rest of the pitchers and catchers later requesting a tiny bit of extra time.

“He had been very proactive about it,” D-backs manager Torey Lovullo said. “He reached out to me and asked for two or three extra days, I gave him.”

The D-backs threw a bullpen session at Salt River Fields on Tuesday and said is healthy, so he’s right on target for where he is the time in the spring. He’ll simply be absent by the first couple of days of coordinated work outs.

“He knows exactly what he needs to accomplish to get ready for the start of season,” Lovullo said. “He has done it for quite a while. He has been working hard, hitting on of his milestones. Its one part I want to be certain that everyone understands, he’s not injured. This is a thing which he gave me a very lengthy heads-up about.”

Greinke has been 15-11 with a 3.21 ERA this past year.

The D backs’ pitchers and catchers held their first work of the spring up.
