White Sox: Nate Jones is recovering from a strained muscle near his lower back. He threw two bullpen sessions within the last week, on Sunday and Wednesday. Jones arrived in camp as the leading contender to be the White Sox closer.

Dodgers: Zack Greinke is expected to miss his next scheduled start, Tuesday against Seattle, because of a strained right calf sustained while throwing just four pitches Thursday. Greinke played catch Friday. Mattingly said the right-hander probably will play catch Saturday. Greinke had been scheduled for a bullpen session that day.

Center fielder Matt Kemp had an MRI on his surgically repaired left ankle Thursday instead of Friday. The Dodgers expect results this weekend. Kemp had microfracture surgery in October.

Left fielder Carl Crawford, scratched Thursday because of a tight left quadriceps, was optimistic about playing Saturday against the Brewers. “There’s a little something in there, but sometimes you got to play through it to get it right,” he said.

Pitching prospect Ross Stripling is scheduled for an MRI after complaining about pain in his right elbow.


With the uncertainty surrounding Greinke’s calf injury, there’s a better chance Ryu will start one of the two games the Dodgers play in Australia on March 22 and 23 in a season-opening series against Arizona.

“Whatever the team wants me to do,” Ryu said.

But there’s one thing he won’t do. Ryu was asked if he would try kangaroo meat.

“No,” he said.
