Tigers SP Shane Greene dealing with blister issue


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2015) The Tigers are unsure when Shane Greene will make his next start at Triple-A because of a blister issue, reports the Detroit Free Press.

Greene was recently demoted to the team's Triple-A affiliate. Greene went 4-6 with a 5.82 ERA in 13 starts this season for the Tigers before being demoted.


Tigers SP Shane Greene leaves Triple-A start with blister


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/21/2015) Tigers starter Shane Greene , who was demoted to Triple-A a little more than a week ago, left Sunday's outing with Toledo after the fourth inning due to a blister on his right finger, according to MLive.com. 

Greene had given up four runs on seven hits and a walk before exiting. The right-hander showed promise in his prior start, tossing 7 1/3 shutout innings last week. 

It is unclear whether Greene will be able to make his next start due to the blister.


Tigers send scuffling SP Shane Greene down to Toledo


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2015) It was only seven weeks ago that Tigers right-hander Shane Greene was the surprise of baseball. Now he's a minor leaguer.

The team has optioned Greene to Triple-A Toledo after a miserable 0-4 stretch in which he allowed 20 runs on 29 hits in 14 2/3 innings.

Greene gave up just one run in his first three starts this season. But he has just two quality starts in his last 10 outings with six performances in which he didn't make it out of the fifth inning.


Tigers' Ausmus not ready to make any decisions on Shane Greene


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/11/2015) Tigers starter Shane Greene got off to an incredible start to the 2015 season. He allowed just one earned run over his first three starts, tossing at least seven innings in all three victories. 

Since then though, Greene has been a completely different pitcher. Over his last 10 starts, the right-hander has a hefty 8.60 ERA in 45 innings pitched. 

"Pitchers are like hitters. They can go through ups and downs," manager Brad Ausmus said, per MLB.com. "They're usually not as dramatic. It's not unheard of for guys to pitch and struggle, or vice versa. Three outings does not make a season, 32 outings does, so I wouldn't rush to judgment on anything."

Now, the Tigers are at a point where they need to make some decisions. Greene's next start is scheduled for Tuesday against the Reds. But Justin Verlander is scheduled to come off the disabled list and start on Saturday, and a corresponding move will need to be made, though Ausmus isn't quite ready to commit to anything. 

"I wouldn't talk about any decisions, if there were a decision to be made," Ausmus said. "I think he's struggling. That's the best way to put it. He's struggling to make pitches."


Tigers SP Shane Greene allows five earned runs in loss


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/10/2015) Tigers starting pitcher Shane Greene didn't last long in his team's 12-3 loss to the Cubs on Wednesday.

Tigers SP Shane Greene working tirelessly to fix delivery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2015) Tigers starting pitcher Shane Greene is working on altering his delivery in an attempt to get his season back on track. After going 3-0 with a 0.39 ERA in his first three starts, the right-hander is 1-5 with an 8.14 ERA in his last nine starts.

"My arm slot is the same, I'm just tilted so I have to get my shoulders to level out and get my arm angle back," he said, per the Detroit Free Press. "Right now my slider's not where I want it to be and I've been saying that all season so I think we figured out why it hasn't been there.

"I think it's the inconsistency more than my sinker not sinking. You can get guys out with a straight fastball if you have other stuff."


Tigers P Shane Greene allows 4 earned runs in third straight loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2015) Tigers pitcher Shane Greene gave up six runs — four earned — in Thursday afternoon's 7-5 loss to the Athletics. 

Greene lasted 4 1/3 innings and ran into trouble early in the second inning. First, Greene allowed an RBI single to Eric Sogard, which was followed by a two-run triple from Josh Phegley. He finished the game allowing eight hits and two walks while recording two strikeouts.

Greene has now allowed 15 earned runs in his past three games. 

"I've just got to set a better tempo for the team," Greene said, per MLB.com. "We're in a slump right now as a team, and as the starting pitcher, if I go out there and set a good tempo, it's a lot easier for these guys to get hot with the bats. It's tough when I put them in that hole."

With the loss, his third in a row, Green falls to 4-5 for the season. His next start is projected for June 10 against the Cubs. 


Tigers pitcher Shane Greene allows five home runs in horrific start


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Then in the second, Greene continued to struggle when he allowed back-to-back home runs to Matt Joyce and Carlos Perez to lead off the inning. Greene gave up one more bomb to Albert Pujols, a three-run shot, before he was pulled. 

No player in league history had given up five home runs and recorded fewer outs before Greene on Saturday.

"Sometimes, they're popups," Greene said to MLB.com. "Sometimes, they're home runs. Tonight, they were home runs."

Greene, now 4-4, moved his ERA to 5.19 in 60 2/3 innings of work. He will look to bounce back Friday against the White Sox.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

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."

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.

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.
