Greene (5-3) was handed a 3-0 lead by the end of the second inning and did enough to stay ahead, allowing just an RBI single in the third inning and a solo home run in the sixth. He owns a 3.56 ERA and 70:24 K:BB ratio in 68 1/3 innings. Greene is scheduled to face the Blue Jays Thursday.
Greene was wild, issuing three walks and throwing only 54 of his 90 pitches for strikes, but he didn't pay for his free passes. He did allow five hits, though none were for extra bases, and he struck out four batters.
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.
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.
It's becoming a pattern.
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.
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.
