Tigers' Shane Greene: Grabs hold Thursday

Greene recorded his fifth hold of the season in Thursday's win over the Orioles. He pitched 1.2 innings without allowing a hit or run, while striking out two.

Greene is quietly putting together a very solid season so far, as he's got a 1.40 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 21 strikeouts through 19.1 innings. Greene flamed out as a starter, posting a 6.88 ERA in 2015 when he started in 16 of his 18 games. Last year, Greene came on in relief in 47 of his 50 games, but his ERA only came down to 5.82, despite a 3.13 FIP. It remains to be seen whether he can keep up his current pace, but he has the stuff to be an effective middle reliever the rest of the way.
