Reliever Shawn Tolleson back after injury
By Mark Saxon
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Reliever Shawn Tolleson had to leave Tuesday's game with a knee injury, but reported himself back to normal when he arrived at the Dodgers complex Wednesday morning. Tolleson is fighting for one of the last spots in the Dodgers' bullpen.
"I don't know exactly what happened, but they're not getting signs of anything major," Mattingly said. "He feels great."
Also, lefty reliever Scott Elbert, who had a pair of off-season elbow operations, will begin his throwing program Wednesday.
Zack Greinke was scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday against Team Mexico with illness. A flu-like virus has been circulating in the Dodgers camp. Pitcher Ted Lilly missed several days earlier and reliever Paco Rodriguez was also absent with illness Wednesday.
Stephen Fife was set to pitch in Greinke's place.
