Yomiuri Giants right-hander Seth Greisinger returned to the United States to undergo an examination on his pitching elbow, the team announced on Monday. Greisinger, a 13-game winner in 2009, has had trouble with his right elbow since the end of last year and was forced to sit out the postseason that saw the Giants win their first Japan Series title in seven years.
