LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) – The NL’s richest pitcher Zack Greinke will begin a minor league rehab assignment in Temecula with Rancho Cucamonga Friday in a Class-A game and could be ready to start for the Los Angeles Dodgers in two weeks, three weeks ahead of schedule.

Greinke’s collarbone was broken on April 11 after Padres’ Carlos Quentin rushed the mound after getting nailed for a third career time by the righty.

Greinke had surgery immediately and was expected to miss eight weeks.

Dodgers skipper Don Mattingly has been impressed by his recovery after he saw Greinke’s fastball reaching in the 90’s in two bullpen sessions he’s done.

Since the Dodgers are in desperate need of their stars, Mattingly might not need him to pitch in two rehab starts with the Class-A team before re-joining the team.

Dodgers are in last lace of the NL West at 13-20 and trail the first-palce Giants by 6.5 games.
