Greinke says he was changing sign sets, not signaling slider

LOS ANGELES (AP) Zack Greinke's achy right arm raised questions as he prepared to start Game 4 of Houston's AL Division Series.

Once Thursday's game got going, everyone was wondering about his fingers, instead.

Greinke held up two fingers as Oakland's Ramon Laureano dug in during the second inning, sparking speculation that the offbeat right-hander was challenging Laureano by telling him what was coming - a theory seemingly supported when Laureano smashed Greinke's hanging slider 440 feet for a tiebreaking, three-run homer.
