Zack Greinke will make his first start after returning to the Royals in an exhibition contest this afternoon against the Colorado Rockies. Greinke typically uses spring training as a way to work on things, so don’t be surprised if he gets touched up a bit. Hey, these are fake games anyway!
The lineup today has a few big leaguer starters like Salvy, Nicky, and Hunter Dozier, but is mostly populated by bench players and minor leaguers.
