Greene cleared waivers Tuesday and is returning to the Yankees, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Greene was selected by the Mets in the 2022 Rule 5 Draft, but they placed him on waivers this past Sunday and will now lose him for a sum of just $50,000. The 26-year-old right-hander posted a 3.42 ERA with 96 strikeouts over 68.1 innings last season at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
