Greinke throws again

Greetings from the atmospheric press box at Nationals Park, where somewhere way down below, Zack Greinke is throwing his second simulated game as he continues a comeback from his cracked rib.  Among the hitters taking their hacks against Greinke is Erick Almonte, who is in the lineup again tonight against Nationals left-hander Tom Gorzelanny.

It’s been a tough go for Almonte, who was the Brewers’ most impressive hitter in Spring Training. He’s 1-for-13 in the regular season, the lone hit a solo homer against the Reds on April 2.

Here’s the lineup:

Rickie Weeks 2B
Carlos Gomez CF
Ryan Braun LF
Prince Fielder 1B
Casey McGehee 3B
Yuniesky Betancourt SS
Erick Almonte RF
Wil Nieves C
Chris Narveson LHP
