    Summary of 5 articles · Updated Feb 23, 2014
    Greinke said he's willing to pitch in Australia and understands why those games were scheduled. "It's a baseball thing. "It would be premature to read any further into it." Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke may have "zero excitement" about the coming trip to Australia to play the D-backs, but the feeling in the Arizona clubhouse appears to be quite different. But hey, that's what makes Zack Greinke interesting. Organizers of Major League Baseball's season-opening series in Australia are upset about comments from Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke, who said that he was not excited for the trip, according to reports in Australian newspapers. It's an ownership thing, spreading stuff around," Greinke said. For D-backs first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, who finished second in the National League Most Valuable Player voting last year, this will be his second trip to Australia in five months. A day before starting its regular season, a team typically sends its 25-man roster to the Major League Baseball office in New York by a prescribed deadline. While McCarthy will start Wednesday, Bronson Arroyo and Randall Delgado will start Thursday's split-squad games, with Arroyo pitching against the Cubs at their new Spring Training facility and Delgado starting against the Dodgers in Glendale.
