Tigers' Shane Greene: Notches 20th save

Greene earned the save in Wednesday's 3-2 victory over the Royals, pitching a scoreless ninth inning during which he allowed a hit and recorded a strikeout.

Greene now ranks second in the majors behind Kirby Yates with 20 saves on the season. Through his 27 appearances, the right-hander has been a solid ninth-inning stopper, compiling a 1.00 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 29:7 K:BB. After a rocky 2018 in which he posted a 5.12 ERA, the 30-year-old reliever has been lights-out so far this season with a 1.00 ERA and 29 strikeouts through 27 innings. The struggling Tigers, for which Greene has recorded saves in 20 of their 25 wins, could decide to move the closer before the trade deadline while his value is high.
