Grienke gears up for Angels debut
ANAHEIM, Calif. — Zack Greinke said he would "get lost without a map" in Southern California, but he made himself quite comfortable as he navigated through the clubhouse on his first day with the Los Angeles Angels.
The right-hander dropped his gear in his new locker between fellow pitchers Ervin Santana and Dan Haren and began to settle in on Saturday, one day after he was traded to the Angels by the Milwaukee Brewers.
