Grant Green getting the call


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2013) Angels infielder Grant Green is expected to be called up to replace Howie Kendrick, according to MLB.com.

Green was recently acquired from the Athletics, and will make his Angels debut sooner than expected. Kendrick went for an MRI on his injured knee Tuesday, though there has been no word on whether he'll miss an extended period. Green is hitting .326 in 402 at-bats in the minors. 


Is it Grant Green time for the Angels?


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/6/2013) When Howie Kendrick left Monday's game with a hyperextended knee, the Angels shifted Mark Trumbo to third base and had Chris Nelson take over second. Trumbo doesn't have extensive experience at the hot corner -- it was his ninth career appearance at the position -- so this may not be how the team looks heading forward.

A more likely scenario has the Angels calling up deadline-deal acquistion Grant Green , who has played four games at third base, and two at second, since joining the Angels' Triple-A affiliate in Salt Lake City (batting .333 in six games).

While it would be nice for Trumbo owners to see that "3B" attached to his name, Green is a former top prospect capable of hitting for power and average, and wouldn't be playing out of position. In what is essentially a lost season for the Angels -- they're 11 games out of the second wild card spot and starting youngsters like J.B. Shuck and Kole Calhoun semi-regularly -- it would make sense for Green to get the call to replace Kendrick.

Expect Trumbo or Tommy Field to make initial appearances at third while the team figures out if Kendrick needs a DL trip, but if his knee is going to have him out for a while, Green would make for a nice add in deeper leagues.


Grant Green an enigmatic dynasty league play


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/31/2013) New Angels acquisition Grant Green is hitless in 15 at-bats this season (all with Oakland), which stands in stark contrast to his stellar minor league numbers -- a .306 average and three double-digit home run campaigns over his last four seasons. 

Green, 25, has an unclear role with the Angels right now, as the former first-round pick has played second base, shortstop, third base, and the outfield in his minor league career. The Angels, who look to be giving up on 2013 and gearing toward the future, could find a spot for Green at any of those positions from now until September, especially if they deal Howie Kendrick, which has been rumored. 

The best bet for Fantasy players now would be to grab Green in dynasty formats and wait to see how the dust settles after the trade deadline to make a decision on adding him in AL-only. A top prospect, Green has a good deal of future potential, but lacks a clear role for the rest of this season. 


Grant Green traded to Angels


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2013) The Oakland Athletics acquired Alberto Callaspo from the Angels Tuesday in exchange for second baseman Grant Green, MLB.com reports. 

The 25-year-old Green has gone 0 for 15 thus far during his major league career. A top prospect at one time, Green was batting .325 down at Triple-A Sacramento with 11 homers and 50 RBI over 87 games. 


Grant Green sent down


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2013) The Athletics optioned infielder Grant Green to Triple-A Sacramento Tuesday, MLB.com reports. 

Green has played in five games since his major league debut. He's gone 0 for 15 and will work on his swing back down in the minors with Adam Rosales joining the A's. 


Grant Green Ks twice in MLB debut


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2013) Athletics second baseman Grant Green made his major-league debut Monday in a 2-1 win at Pittsburgh. Green has yet to pick up his first major-league hit.

The youngster did record his first two career strikeouts, however, as he went 0 for 3 before leaving the game. He was 0 for 1 with runners in scoring position.

Green is expected to be basically the everyday second baseman for the A's going forward.

Grant Green officially recalled, hitting eighth Monday


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2013) The Athletics have officially recalled second baseman Grant Green from Triple-A Sacramento, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Green will bat eighth and play second base Monday night against the Pirates and lefty starter Jeff Locke.

Green's call-up has been expected since the weekend. He earned it with a .318/.374/.500 line and 11 home runs in 81 games at Sacramento. 


Grant Green the envy of Fantasy owners?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2013) The arrival of Grant Green likely indicates the Athletics feel they need a Plan B because they don't think Eric Sogard will be able to sustain as the starting second baseman down the stretch. If you're a Fantasy owner, especially in AL-only formats, you are OK with this because Green has the higher offensive upside than Sogard.

Green began his pro career as a shortstop, but he eventually moved to second base because of defensive shortcomings. That's not such a bad thing because Green's upside has always been about his offensive skills. Here's a guy that could project to hit .300 and 20 home runs one day, which would make him extremely valuable as a Fantasy second baseman. 

As for his immediate impact? Is he the next Anthony Rendon? Probably too lofty of expectations. But if you are in need of middle-infield help and can spare a bench spot, I think that's where Green qualifies. As we have learned the hard way in 2013, not every elite prospect becomes a breakout Fantasy player immediately.


Grant Green expected to join A's Monday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2013) The Athletics are expected to promote infielder Grant Green from Triple-A Sacramento before Monday's game against the Pirates, according to MLB.com. 

Green, the 13th overall pick from the 2009 First-Year Player Draft, was ranked as the club's No. 4 prospect by MLB.com entering the season. The 25-year-old batted .318 with a .374 on-base percentage, 11 homers, 25 doubles and 49 RBI in 81 games with the River Cats. He is expected to make his debut at second base Monday in Pittsburgh.


Michael Taylor misses out on roster


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2013) The Oakland Athletics pared down their roster Sunday, optioning outfielders Grant Green and Michael Taylor to Triple-A Sacramento. Both players were in the running for a spot on the opening day roster this spring, but could make an appearance with the parent club at some point during the season.

The Athletics also reassigned pitcher Brian Gordon, catcher Dave Freitas, first baseman Scott Moore, shortstop Dawrin Perez and outfielder Michael Choice to their minor-league camp.


Green getting in swing of things


(3/5/2013) Grant Green is competing for the starting job at second base this spring and had another productive day at the plate in Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Royals. He went 2 for 4 with a pair of doubles in the 8-2 loss. Green is batting .500 (8 for 16) through eight spring games. "He's swinging the bat great,'' bench coach and acting manager Chip Hale said. ''It's the same stuff we see every day in batting practice. He just hasn't had a whole lot of opportunity to play. Since he's got the opportunity, he's shown us why he had the big year last year in Triple-A offensively and the move to second base is looking good right now."
