Greene went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a triple, a walk and two additional runs in a 4-3 win against the Royals on Saturday. Making his second straight start from the leadoff spot, Greene tripled and scored in the first inning, walked and scored in the fifth and went back-to-back with Victor Reyes in the ninth for the game-winning home run. The long ball and triple were both the first of the 21-year-old top prospect's career, as Greene has now reached base at least twice in eight of 12 games and is slashing .302/.434/.442 through 43 at-bats.
Greene went 0-for-3 with two walks, an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 11-7 loss to the Diamondbacks. Greene was held without a hit for the third time in his first eight big-league games, but he was still able to get involved in the offense. His steal Sunday was his first in the majors after he logged four in 17 contests in the minors this season. He had 16 steals in 2021, so there's some speed in the young outfielder's game. Overall, he's batting .250 with two RBI and six runs scored, but he's yet to knock an extra-base hit. As long as he remains with the Tigers, he'll get a look for regular playing time in center field on a rebuilding team.
Already in two games, Greene has four walks, which speaks to his polish as a hitter. You may remember he actually won the starting center field job in spring training, but a fractured foot delayed his debut until Sunday. Most preseason publications rated him higher than even Spencer Torkelson at the start of the year, and unlike the first baseman, Greene offers an element of speed. It's his hit tool that stands out most, though, which is generally the one that yields the most immediate results in Fantasy. Pick him up everywhere.
Greene is starting in center field and batting fifth in Sunday's game against the Rangers. Greene made his MLB debut Saturday and went 2-for-3 with two runs scored from the No. 6 spot in the lineup. He'll move up to fifth Sunday, and the 21-year-old certainly has the talent to stick in the heart of the Detroit order the rest of the season. There will likely be some growing pains, but Greene could be a fantasy difference-maker down the stretch.
Greene went 2-for-3 with two runs scored in Saturday's win over Texas. Greene had quite the debut, scoring on a Kody Clemens sac fly, then again on a Clemens ground-rule double. The rookie showed his plate discipline in the game by walking twice in addition to his two hits.
