After a five-week stint on the DL to open the 2011 season, Brewers pitcher Zack Greinke made his long-anticipated debut with Milwaukee Wednesday night in Atlanta.
The results left much to be desired:
4 IP, 5 R, 4 ER, 5 H, 1 BB, 6 K
He was on a 90-pitch limit, but was pulled by Brewers' Manager Ron Roenicke after 86.
Seeing as how it was his first start, and would be the equivalent to most pitchers' fourth spring game, I don't think it's anything to worry about.
Greinke will find his groove and will help Milwaukee win plenty of ballgames along the way.
Suffice it to say, things are about to get interesting within the division.
Here are five reasons Greinke is about to shake up the NL Central.
