08:14 AM ET 04.08 | Zack Greinke inched his way toward an MLB return Thursday, throwing from a bullpen mound at Miller Park. It was his first mound work since he was shut down in mid-March to let a cracked left rib heal. Greinke still faces weeks of rehabilitation. He will have to throw a series of bullpen sessions and perhaps simulated games before he's cleared for a Minor League rehab assignment. That process could take 10 days to two weeks. Then he will have to build his pitch count in Minor League games over the course of another three or four weeks. "He's been really throwing the ball well," said manager Ron Roenicke, adding that the Brewers will be cautious. "Once his arm is built up and strong, then you can push him."

Not a real good start to the season for the new Brewers pitchers at this point of the season. Greinke is out untill what looks like May and that pitcher they got from Toronto got destroyed by the Reds.
