Zack Greinke's Shoulder Injury No Big Deal, Will Return After The All-Star Break

Last Tuesday, the trainers had to come out and tend to Zack Greinke on the mound because he had some soreness in his shoulder. He stayed in the game and the "injury" was deemed no big deal.

The following day he said there was no pain in his shoulder so we all thought the issue was done.

↵

Then on Sunday, Greinke's next scheduled start, he was scratched. The issue, according to the Royals, was shoulder soreness.

↵

So what's the deal?

↵

Apparently, not much. Greinke is scheduled to start against the A's next week when the Royals return from the All-Star break so the "injury" appears to be no big deal.

Then again, that's what the Royals said last week before he missed his next start.
