Green went the opposite way for his first career long ball. He's batting .250 on the year for the Angels. The 25-year-old needed 92 at-bats to go deep for the first time. He did it in his 29th game.
Green singled twice and scored two runs on the game. After beginning his career 0 for 15 with the A's, Green has gone 7 for 16 (.438) over his first five games with the Angels.
Green got the starting not at second base Tuesday and is searching for his first major league hit. He started his career going 0 for 15 with the A's.

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.
