by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2014) The Braves traded minor-league infielder Tyler Greene to the Padres for a player to be named later Tuesday, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Greene will report to Triple-A El Paso.

Greene was hitting just .200 in 40 at-bats for the Braves' Triple-A team in Gwinnett.

Jason Hursh, Tommy La Stella headline Braves' non-roster invitees


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Braves' other invitees include pitchers Lay Batista, J.R. Graham, Mark Lamm, Cody Martin, Yunesky Maya, Daniel RodriguezGus Schlosser, Atahualpa Severino, Shae Simmons and Ian Thomas; catchers Matt Kennelly, Steven Lerud, Braeden Schlehuber and Jose Yepez; outfielder Matt Lipka; and infielders Mat Gamel, Phil Gosselin, Tyler Greene, Mark Hamilton and Edward Salcedo.

The Braves' first-round pick in the 2013 amateur draft, Hursh allowed two earned runs in 27 innings while striking out 15 and walking 10 at Class A Rome in his first season with the organization.

La Stella, who could compete for a starting role at second base, hit .343/.422/.473 with four home runs, 41 RBI and seven stolen bases in 283 at-bats with Double-A Mississippi last season.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2013) The Braves signed infielder Tyler Greene and assigned him to Triple-A Gwinnett Saturday. Greene was last with the White Sox, before he was released from their Triple-A squad in early August.

Tyler Greene released from Triple-A roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2013) The White Sox released infielder Tyler Greene, according to the Charlotte Knights (Triple-A) media relations department. Greene was designated for assignment in early June and had been playing for Charlotte since then.

White Sox DFA infielder Tyler Greene


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2013) White Sox infielder Tyler Greene was designated for assignment Monday to make room on the roster for Gordon Beckham, who was activated off the 15-day disabled list. Greene hit .222 (12 for 54) with one home run and three RBI in 22 games (14 starts) for Chicago.

White Sox designate Tyler Greene for assignment


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2013) The White Sox have designated second baseman Tyler Greene for assignment following Sunday's game, according to the Chicago Tribune. Greene hit .222 with a .263 on-base percentage in 22 games for the White Sox.

Tyler Greene hits first home run


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2013) Drawing the start at second base, Tyler Greene went 2 for 4 with a two-run home run against the Rays Friday, his first homer of the year. Greene has excelled in limited time for the White Sox thus far, going 5 for 12 and striking out just once.

Tyler Greene thrown into fire


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2013) The White Sox threw second baseman Tyler Greene right into the fire on Monday in Toronto, MLB.com reports. Having just purchased his contract from Triple-A Charlotte after recently signing him, manager Robin Ventura wrote Greene's name into the lineup at second and batting ninth. 

"With Angel [Sanchez] going down, we needed a middle infielder," Ventura said. "[Greene] can play middle infield, run a little bit. It's one of those, you just see what he has. In an emergency, he can play the outfield. There is no better way than to get him out there and see what he can do."

The 29-year-old Greene made an immediate impact in the game as he singled twice in his first three at-bats. He also took part in a double play with Adam Dunn. 


White Sox recall Tyler Greene


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2013) The White Sox have recalled infielder Tyler Greene, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Greene, 29, was slated to become the Astros' starting shortstop but lost the job to Ronny Cedeno following a trade. The Astros eventually released him, and the White Sox signed Greene on April 1. 

Greene, a .224/.292/.356 career hitter, offers the White Sox a backup option across the diamond in the wake of injuries to Gordon Beckham and Angel Sanchez, both now on the disabled list.


White Sox sign Tyler Greene


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2013) The White Sox have signed infielder Tyler Greene.

Greene was released by the Astros after hitting .167/.314/.214 in 42 at-bats. Greene has played every position except catcher and pitcher in his major-league career. He'll likely provide depth in case of injuries.  


Tyler Greene should get a shot somewhere


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/26/2013) In his minor-league career, Tyler Greene hit 14 or more home runs four times, despite only getting over 500 at-bats twice. He stole 15 or more bases five times. He has a career .270 average. In the majors, however, Greene had never been given a real extended look before the Astros gave him a 39-game run in 2012, resulting in a .246 average with seven home runs and three steals in 126 at-bats. 

Greene was released by the Astros Tuesday, squashing what could have been a promising 2013. Now without a home, he could find a role in one of the messy middle infield situations (Oakland, the Yankees, the Dodgers, Kansas City, St. Louis) around baseball, but chances are he's headed somewhere to serve the sad designation of "organizational depth."

If he signs somewhere in the next few days and can play his way into full-time at-bats, Greene could still have a shot at making an impact. And before you scoff, remember that Brandon Phillips was traded to the Reds in the first week of April 2006, sporting a .206 career average with six home runs and four steals over parts of four seasons with the Indians -- along with similar minor-league numbers to Greene. 


Astros release Tyler Greene


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2013) The Astros have released infielder Tyler Greene. Greene would become a free-agent if he's able to clear waivers Thursday. The 29-year-old hit just .167/.314/.214 this spring. 

Greene hit .230/.274/.400 in 330 plate appearances last season.


Tyler Greene wastes great opportunity


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2013) So much for Tyler Greene being a potential Draft Day sleeper.

The Astros have told the 2005 first-round pick he won't make the opening day roster and apparently are trying to trade him.

Greene's been given plenty of chances to live up to the hype that followed him as a prospect and seemed to have a real good chance this season to make an impact. But he didn't hit this spring, and when the Astros say they don't want you, then what's left?

Greene seems destined to perhaps fill a role as a Quad-A player (too good for the minors but not good enough for the majors) or backup major-league infielder, so it's safe to leave Greene off Fantasy rosters.


Astros inform Tyler Greene he won't make team


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2013) The Astros have informed infielder Tyler Greene he will not make the club's major-league squad, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Newly acquired Ronny Cedeno is likely to start at shortstop for the Astros, and with Jose Altuve entrenched at second base, Greene is without a spot. Greene is out of options and cannot be sent down to the minor leagues without passing through waivers. Houston has informed Greene they will attempt to trade him.

Greene, 25, hit .230/.274/.400 (82 OPS+) in 330 plate appearances with St. Louis and Houston last season. 


Greene in mix at SS for Houston


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2013) MLB.com reports Astros infielders Marwin Gonzalez and Tyler Greene will compete for the starting shortstop job this spring in the wake of Jed Lowrie being traded to Oakland.
