SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo says Zack Greinke won't be the team's opening-day starter.

Lovullo, speaking before Monday's spring training game against the Chicago White Sox, said the tightness that Greinke experienced in his groin in his latest start last Wednesday led him to rule out his ace for his usual opening-day role.

If there had been no health issue, Lovullo said, Greinke would be Arizona's opening-day starter for the third straight season. He was a 17-game winner last season.
