Green signed a minor league deal with the Giants on Monday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. Green cleared waivers in October, so there didn't seem to be much interest out there for the 28-year-old, but the Giants were apparently intrigued enough to extend an offer. He posted a .306/.337/.449 slash line at Triple-A last season, but struggled in the majors to the tune of a .190 average in 42 at bats, so he'll likely begin the year in the minors.
Angels infielder/outfielder Grant Green cleared waivers and was assigned outright to Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times reports. All 29 other MLB teams passed on Green after he was designated for assignment last week, so he will remain in the Angels' organization. While Green can play all around the field, he's done little at the plate in 109 games at the highest level to suggest he will ever be more than a fringe major leaguer (.249/.283/.335).
Pitcher Jo-Jo Reyes was called up by the Angels on Wednesday. The 30-year-old lefty will return to the majors for the first time since 2011, providing the Angels with some added bullpen depth for the final five games of the regular season. Reyes will also be available for the postseason roster, but it's hard to imagine he will have a spot, especially considering his .362 BAA and 1.89 WHIP allowed to left-handed hitters at Triple-A Salt Lake. Grant Green was designated for assignment in a corresponding move. His defensive versatility was not enough to compensate for the lack of offensive production at the major league level. In 21 games with the big club this season, Green went just 8 for 42 (.190 average) with one extra-base hit and 14 strikeouts, lowering his line at the highest level to .249/.283/.335. The 28-year-old did hit .306/.337/.449 at Triple-A Salt Lake this season, so it's at least possible he could draw interest from another club.
Angels infielder Grant Green was forced to leave Tuesday's game against the Tigers in the fourth inning. Green is dealing with discomfort in his right knee. The second baseman was 1 for 1 before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the fourth. There has been no further word on the severity of his injury.
The Angels have recalled infielder Grant Green from Triple-A Salt Lake City. Green has gone back and forth between the big-leagues and Triple-A this year, as this will be his fourth stint with the Angels in 2015. Green is in the starting lineup on Saturday, as he will be at second base and bat ninth against the Blue Jays. To clear room on the roster, Nick Tropeano--who started on Friday--has been optioned back to Triple-A.
