Dodgers put Greinke on paternity list, next start isn't set, shutout streak at 43 2-3 innings


NEW YORK — The Los Angeles Dodgers have put All-Star pitcher on the paternity list after the birth of his first child.

Greinke has a streak of 43 2-3 scoreless innings, and it hasn't been determined when his next start will come.

The NL West leaders made the move before Friday night's game against the Mets in New York. Greinke was originally scheduled to start the game before returning to Los Angeles on Thursday to be with wife Emily. She delivered son Bode Nicholas that night.

Greinke can remain on the paternity list for up to three days. In the meantime, the Dodgers called up right-hander from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

After Greinke left on Thursday, manager said there was a chance the ace could pitch later this weekend against the Mets.
