Tigers pitcher Shane Greene tagged for seven runs in rough start


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) 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
(4/24/2015) 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
(4/21/2015) 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
(4/19/2015) 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
(4/17/2015) 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.


Shane Greene wins second for Tigers with eight shutout IP


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Shane Greene moved to 2-0 on the season with eight shutout innings in the Tigers' 2-0 win over Pittsburgh. 

Greene still hasn't allowed a run on the year. He allowed three hits on Tuesday and struck out three without walking a batter. Greene threw 81 pitches, 56 for strikes. 

Greene didn't get to attempt to finish off the shutout, because manager Brad Ausmus pinch hit for him in the top of the ninth inning after a runner reached second base. 

"Once the guy is in scoring position, that run becomes so important," Ausmus said, per MLive. "The difference between a two-run lead in the bottom of the ninth and a one-run lead is enormous."

Greene next pitches on Sunday against the White Sox and Chris Sale.

Tigers P Shane Greene goes eight strong innings in season debut


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Tigers pitcher Shane Greene was fantastic on the mound for the club in his season debut on Thursday. Greene earned the win as the Tigers beat the Twins 7-1.

"I was just trying to throw strikes," said Greene, per mlive.com. "Once they put up those three runs, I was just trying to get back to the dugout as fast as possible."

"I think there were a few more nerves before the 1 o'clock start, but by the time the game started I was good," Greene said.

Manager Brad Ausmus praised Greene's performance.

"He has very good stuff and he can throw strikes," Ausmus said. "(If) he keeps the ball down in the zone, especially his sinker, he'll be in great shape. He was outstanding."

In eight innings pitched, Greene struck out five and walked one on four hits given up. The one run scored by the Twins was unearned.

Greene will have a chance to earn his second win on Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

Alfredo Simon still remains on track to open the second series against Cleveland on April 10. It is then expected Price will make his second start on April 11 against the Indians. As of now, Verlander is expected to come off the disabled list and make his season debut April 12 at Cleveland.

Shane Greene clobbered in last start of 2014


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Errors prove costly for Shane Greene


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/7/2014) Shane Greene did not allow an earned run in his five innings against the Royals on Sunday, but he came away with the loss in the Yankees' 2-0 defeat. A pair of errors, including a throwing error by Greene himself, led to each of the Royals' runs.

Greene's record now stands at 4-3 and his ERA fell to 3.57. His next start is currently scheduled for Saturday at the Orioles.


Shane Greene has a tough start Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Yankees pitcher Shane Greene couldn’t make it three innings Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Greene allowed six runs on six hits over 2 2/3 innings. He struck out three and walked three during the appearance. Greene found himself in trouble almost immediately. After getting one out to open the game, Greene allowed a single, a walk and a run-scoring double to the next three batters. He then gave up a sac fly, plating the second run of the inning. Greene was able to toss a scoreless second, but got into trouble in the third.

After getting a fly out to open the frame, Greene allowed a single, walk and three-run homer to the next three hitters he faced. After striking out Will Middlebrooks, Greene gave up a solo shot against Xander Bogaerts. A walk to David Ross ended Greene’s night. 

With the loss, Greene fell to 4-2. He’ll take on the Royals in his next start.


Consistency Shane Greene's only issue


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/28/2014) It's becoming a pattern. Shane Greene starts, goes six strong, strikes out more than a batter per inning, and we're all left to figure out what it means.

There comes a point when evaluating a player, like with Jacob deGrom a few months back, when you can no longer rely on what he did in the minors. You look at what he's throwing, see what results from it and reassess from there.

I can't think of a better comparison than deGrom, really. As he worked his way up the minors, I wasn't impressed, but then when I saw how hard he threw, I decided to keep an open mind. And then came the strikeouts -- one start after another -- just like Greene. 

Greene has made nine starts now, and in five of them, he's allowed two earned runs or fewer. But that means in four, he's allowed three earned runs or more. While the highs have been high, the lows have still been there. He had a three-start stretch in the middle of those nine in which he allowed 10 earned runs in 15 2/3 innings. And then there was the nine hits in five innings he allowed to the White Sox prior to Wednesday's gem at Detroit.

So while I'd like to assume he'll be two earned runs, eight strikeouts every time out, the inconsistency is why I still view Greene as more of a streaming option, but one whose stock is clearly on the rise.


Shane Greene turns in strong start Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Yankees pitcher Shane Greene turned in a strong start Wednesday against the Tigers.

Greene allowed two runs on five hits over seven innings. He struck out eight and walked one during the outing. Greene got off to a strong start, keeping the Tigers off the board for the first three innings. He ran into some trouble in the fourth inning. The first two hitters of the inning managed a single and a run-scoring double against Greene. He gave up his other run in the sixth inning, when Victor Martinez clubbed a solo shot.

The Yankees were able to get to David Price Wednesday, giving Greene the win. He improved to 4-1. He’ll take on the Red Sox in his next start.


Shane Greene earns no decision Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Yankees pitcher Shane Greene lasted five innings Friday against the White Sox.

Greene allowed three runs on nine hits over five innings of work. He struck out seven and walked two during the outing. All three runs came in the first inning. Alejandro De Aza and Carlos Sanchez led off the game with singles, and then Jose Abreu clobbered a three-run homer out to left field. Greene was able to get out of the inning without giving up any additional runs. Greene worked around base-runners two other times during the start. He put two men on in the second and fifth innings. He wound up throwing 92 pitches during the start.

Greene earned the no-decision for his efforts. He'll take on the Tigers in his next start. 


Shane Greene strikes out 10 Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Yankees pitcher Shane Greene struck out 10 Rays Saturday.

Greene allowed two runs on seven hits over six innings. He notched 10 strikeouts and walked one. Greene actually gave up a leadoff double to open the game, but managed to settle in without giving up any runs early. He was dominant over most of the start, but seemed to lose some steam as his pitch count rose. Greene gave up a run on three singles in the sixth inning. He came back out for the seventh, but was pulled after hitting a batter and issuing a walk. One run came around to score, and was charged to Greene. 

Greene did not factor into the decision. His next start will come against the Astros. 


Yankees announce rotation after rainout, skip Hiroki Kuroda


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) The Yankees will skip Hiroki Kuroda's next turn in the rotatio in order to give the pitcher some extra rest.

In the wake of Tuesday's postponement, the team announced that Michael Pineda would remain Wednesday's scheduled starter, with Brandon McCarthy due to pitch Friday, Shane Greene set for Saturday and Chris Capuano, who drew the start Monday, getting the call Sunday.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
