Zack Greinke was scheduled to start this one, but he instead got his work in on one of the back-fields at Salt River Fields. Craig Grialou reports as follows:

Presuming he stays on normal schedule, this will allow Greinke to appear once more in spring, against the Indians in the first Chase Field warm-up game next Monday, and then on Saturday in the final game of the Rockies series which opens the regular season. Fingers crossed everything goes as planned. Tonight, we instead get to see Matt Koch, who has had himself a very good spring. He has a 1.59 ERA over 11.1 innings, though I’d probably like to have seen a few more punch-outs, since his K:BB ratio is only 5:2. But even making the final 35 players is probably more than anyone would have expected from Koch coming into the pre-season, so his stock has been raised this spring.
