Lakeland, Fla. — It certainly could have been a lot worse.

Tigers catcher Grayson Greiner suffered a broken nose after being struck with a 94-mph fastball Sunday from Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Elvis Luciano.

Tigers catcher Grayson Greiner suffered a broken nose in Sunday's spring-training game against the Blue Jays.

The break was relatively clean and no reconstruction was required. In addition, there was no damage to the orbital or cheek bones, a source confirmed to The Detroit News. 

The hope is that Greiner, who is embroiled in a battle for the backup catcher spot, can return in a week.
