Tigers pitcher Shane Greene tagged for seven runs in rough start
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/29/15) Tigers pitcher Shane Greene allowed seven runs on nine hits in 4 1/3 innings in Detroit's 10-7 win over the Twins Wednesday.
Greene ran into issues in the fourth inning when he allowed an RBI double to Joe Mauer to get things started. Then, Oswaldo Arcia ripped a two-run shot over the right field wall. then in the fifth, the struggles continued. After allowing the first two batters to reach safely, Mauer singled home another run before Trevor Plouffe crushed a three-run blast over the left center field wall, chasing Greene out of the game.
Greene, who finished with a no decision after Detroit came back to win, remains 3-1 and ballooned his ERA to 4.60. He will look to get back on track Tuesday against the White Sox.
Tigers SP Shane Greene sees ERA skyrocket from 0.39 to 3.00
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/24/15) The good times finally ended Friday for Tigers starting pitcher Shane Greene, who had allowed just two runs (one earned) through his first three starts.
The right-hander was charged with eight runs on nine hits and two walks in four-plus innings during a 13-1 loss Friday against the Indians. He struck out one.
Greene (3-1) had his issues from the get-go Friday. He gave up a two-out, two-run double to Brandon Moss in the first inning and surrendered a sac fly to Jose Ramirez in the second inning. He then fell apart in the fifth inning, as the Indians put six runs on the board -- five charged to Greene.
He left the game after Carlos' Santana's two-RBI double. Reliever Alex Wilson was then greeted by a three-run homer from Moss, which put Cleveland ahead 9-1.
"I felt really good, but I left some balls up and paid for it,'' Greene said. ''These are the best hitters in the world, and you have to make your pitches.''
Greene's ERA went from 0.39 to 3.00. He will look to get back on track in his next start Wednesday at Minnesota.
Tigers' Greene on trade from Yankees: 'I felt like I got dumped'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) Tigers pitcher Shane Greene has given up just one earned run in 23 innings in his first three starts and has played with a chip on his shoulder after being traded by the Yankees this offseason, the Wall Street Journal reports.
"I felt like I got dumped," Greene said of being traded.
Greene went 5-4 with a 3.78 ERA and 81:29 K:BB ratio in 78 2/3 innings with the Yankees last year during his rookie season.
"I proved to myself that I was good enough," Greene said. "I guess I didn’t prove it to everybody else."
Greene is the only starting pitcher not scheduled to face the Yankees during the team's current four-game series. He expected to pitch during the series in spring training after being penciled in as the No. 5 starter, but the injury to Justin Verlander altered the team's rotation plans.
"I knew," Greene said. "April 22 would have been the day if I was No. 5."
Greene's next chance to face the team that traded him will come when the Tigers travel to the Bronx in June.
"I’ll get that chance," he said. "That time will come."
Shane Greene moves to 3-0 for Tigers
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Tigers starter Shane Greene moved to 3-0 on the season with a win over the White Sox on Sunday.
Greene gave up one run in seven innings and has a 0.39 ERA for the season. He allowed five hits and walked four, while striking out three. He threw 65 strikes in 102 pitches.
"The first three starts, I don't think I expected him to be this efficient and throw this many strikes," Ausmus said to MLive.com. "A young guy, I didn't realize he was going to be able to pound the strike zone the way he has so far. And I hope it continues."
Greene next pitches on Friday against Cleveland and Danny Salazar.
Tigers were shocked Yanks willing to deal Greene to acquire shortstop
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) Tigers personnel were shocked over the winter when they were able to acquire starting pitcher Shane Greene from the Yankees, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
One source told Heyman it was "painful" for the Yankees to trade Greene, but it appears the team was desperate for a shortstop, which is why they moved Greene in order to get Didi Gregorius in a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks.
Gregorius is off to a rough start with the Yankees, going 5 for 29 (.172) with one error in nine games. Greene is off to a great start with Detroit, going 2-0 and allowing one unearned run in 16 innings.
|2014 summary: Even after a 2013 minor league breakout, Shane Greene wasn't on the radar of many Fantasy owners coming into 2014, and a 4.61 ERA at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre didn't do much to raise his profile. It didn't take long for Greene to grab the attention of owners once he entered the Yankees' rotation in July, turning in quality starts in his first two outings, and finishing with a 5-4 record and 3.78 ERA. Though Greene had not been much of a strikeout pitcher in the minors, he notched 81 Ks in 78 2/3 big league innings. The Yankees traded Greene to the Tigers just prior to the Winter Meetings as part of a three-team deal with the Diamondbacks.|
Playing time status: The Tigers are expected to use Greene at the back end of their rotation.
2015 outlook: Though Greene hasn't built a reputation for being a strikeout pitcher, his fastball does reach the mid-90s and he has had success in getting swinging strikes at both the major and minor league levels. Toss in Greene's abilities to induce ground balls and the potential for above-average control, and we could have the makings of a staple in standard mixed leagues. Not only could Greene wind up being a steal for the Tigers, but as a late-round flier in Fantasy, he could be one of this season's best bargains.
