Player Outlook
Riley Greene was one of a handful of hitters who needed Tommy John surgery at the end of the 2023 season. Greene's surgery was on his non-throwing elbow, so it should not impact the timeline of his return to the field. The impact to his swing and production will be another story. Green had a successful rookie season hitting for a solid average, accepting walks while flashing his overall athleticism. The biggest flaw on Greene's young resume is the swing and miss which leads to a bottom quartile strikeout rate but good things happen more often than not when he does get bat to ball. He was not afford much time facing lefties as a rookie, but hit .279 in 93 plate appearances, but all 11 of his homers came against righties. Detroit saw enough from him to have him hitting second or third when he did start, and we should not expect that lineup position to change in 2024. He may get off to a slow start coming off surgery, but the volume should be there in the end.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Resting versus LHP

    Greene isn't in the Tigers' lineup Saturday against the Blue Jays. With southpaw Yusei Kikuchi set to take the mound for Toronto, the left-handed bat of Greene will step out of the lineup. While he rests, Ryan Vilade, Matt Vierling and Wenceel Perez will start across Detroit's outfield.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Contributes three hits, three RBI

    Greene went 3-for-4 with three RBI and a run scored Thursday against the Guardians. Greene had entered Wednesday's game in a 1-for-14 skid but collected two hits Wednesday and three more Thursday to break out of the mini-slump. It was the sixth time this season and fourth since June 15 that Greene has collected at least three hits in a game. He also added three RBI, giving him 48 on the season to go along with a .266 average and 17 homers.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Serving as DH on Sunday

    Greene is serving as the designated hitter and batting fourth in Sunday's game against the Reds. Greene will get a day off from playing the outfield, though the Tigers are keeping his hot bat in the lineup. Over his last 10 games, the 23-year-old has a .962 OPS. For the season, Greene has an .863 OPS and 17 home runs, making him a strong fantasy asset thus far. The young star is just starting to tap into his potential and has a ton of upside the rest of the year.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Reaches four times, goes deep

    Greene went 3-for-4 with a walk, a double and a solo home run in Friday's 5-4 win over the Reds. Greene has been hot lately, as he's riding a four-game hitting streak, during which he's gone 8-for-16 with two home runs. He's up to 17 long balls this season, which is already a new career high. The 23-year-old Greene appears to be having his breakout, so fantasy managers should enjoy the ride as long as the young outfielder stays healthy.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Big effort in win

    Greene went 3-for-4 with a triple, a two-run home run and an additional run scored in Wednesday's 9-2 win over the Twins. Greene was an offensive force as he recorded his 16th home run of the season and pushed his OPS up to .851. The 23-year-old had already surpassed his previous career best of 11 home runs in a season, and he's now up to a career-high 43 RBI this year as well after Wednesday's effort. Greene could be closing in on his first All-Star appearance, but at the very least he's been a strong fantasy asset who continues to trend upward given his promising skill set.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Pops 15th home run

    Greene went 2-for-4 with a walk and a three-run home run in Sunday's 11-2 win over the White Sox. Greene hit his 15th home run of the season in the second inning, a three-run shot that pushed him to 40 RBI this year. The 23-year-old outfielder has gone deep five times this month in 20 games, and a monster finish to the campaign could be in order if he keeps this up. Greene has already set a new career high with the 15 homers, and he needs three more RBI to set a new career best in that category.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Reaches three times in loss

    Greene went 1-for-2 with two walks and an RBI in Monday's 2-1 loss to Atlanta. Greene didn't get much support from the rest of the lineup but it was still a good day for the young outfielder. He's been locked in this month with a .305 batting average across 15 games, and that's pushed his overall average to .254. Greene is a dynamic talent who can really take off if he keeps making consistent contact at the plate like he's done recently.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Huge day at plate

    Greene went 4-for-5 with one walk, two home runs and six RBI in Saturday's 13-5 win over the Astros. Greene was a beast in this contest. He contributed a solo shot in the first inning, a three-run blast in the second and an RBI single in the third as the Tigers jumped out to a 10-0 lead. His sixth RBI of the day came on a bases-loaded walk in the eighth. The outfielder has driven in 12 runs during his six-game hitting streak and he's batting .321 (17-for-53) in June. The 23-year-old is up to 14 homers, 36 RBI, 48 runs scored, three stolen bases and a .256/.348/.488 slash line through 69 contests overall as he continues to cement himself as a building block for the Tigers during their ongoing rebuild.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Goes deep in loss

    Greene went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 7-5 loss to the Nationals. Greene is starting to get going at the plate, as he's now batting .275 in June with two home runs, seven RBI and eight runs scored across 10 games. The young outfielder has pushed himself up to 12 long balls on the season, and if he stays hot the rest of the month, his counting stats could trend upward quickly.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Triples, drives in three Tuesday

    Greene went 1-for-5 with a triple, a run scored and three RBI in Tuesday's 5-4, extra-inning loss to the Nationals. Greene's triple came with the bases loaded in the bottom of the fifth inning, pushing his season RBI total to 28. The young outfielder is still batting just .242 after hitting .288 in 2023, but his .793 OPS is in line with last year's .796 mark. Greene is a dynamic talent, and if he can push his average up even a little bit, he should be able to have a sizable fantasy impact the rest of the way.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Reaches twice in loss

    Greene went 2-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Red Sox. That's consecutive two-hit games for Greene, who has his batting average up to .244. While that's a dip from the .288 figure he recorded last season, he's sitting with an identical .796 OPS so far thanks to an early power surge. Greene has blasted 10 home runs across 57 games after going deep only 11 times in 99 games last year. The 23-year-old seems primed to set a new career high in long balls in 2024, and it could happen soon if he stays locked in at the plate.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Swipes second bag

    Greene went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, a run scored and a stolen base in Friday's 7-3 loss to the Red Sox. Getting the start in center field and batting second, Greene was the only Tiger to record multiple hits on the night. The 23-year-old has reached base eight times in the last four games, and on the season he's slashing .239/.343/.449 with 10 homers, two steals, 22 RBI and 37 runs through 56 contests.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Goes deep Thursday

    Greene went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk Thursday in a 5-0 victory versus the Red Sox. Greene launched a two-run shot in the eighth inning to double Detroit's lead. The long ball snapped a 19-game homer drought that extended back to May 6. Greene has nonetheless gone deep 10 times this season, so he's already one homer away from matching the 11 he hit over 416 plate appearances last year.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Reaches three times in doubleheader

    Greene went 2-for-7 with a walk, a double and two runs scored in Wednesday's doubleheader against the Pirates. Greene did most of his damage in the first game, when he went 2-for-4 with both of his runs, then cooled down against Paul Skenes and the Pittsburgh bullpen in the nightcap. That's a microcosm of the outfielder's season, as he was batting .257 with a .911 OPS through the end of April, but he's batting just .204 with a .590 OPS this month. Greene has the talent to get rolling again, however, and fantasy managers will just need to be patient with the 23-year-old.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Heading to bench Sunday

    Greene is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays. Greene is in the midst of a 2-for-22 slump and will sit Sunday after making nine straight starts. Mark Canha will shift to left field while Carson Kelly receives a turn at designated hitter.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Provides all the offense Monday

    Greene went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Guardians. Greene got Detroit on the board early, belting a leadoff home run against Triston McKenzie in the top of the first inning. However, he and his teammates went quiet from there. Fantasy managers won't mind too much, as the young outfielder now has four home runs over his last seven games, which has pushed him up to nine long balls for the season. Greene hit a career-high 11 home runs last year, and it looks like he should fly past that number in 2024.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Goes yard twice in win

    Greene went 2-for-3 with a walk, two home runs and three RBI in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Rays. The Orlando native put on a show for friends and family in Tampa Bay, launching a solo shot to center field off Ryan Pepiot in the third inning before crushing a Colin Poche fastball to left-center in the eighth for a game-winning, two-run blast. Greene snapped a 14-game homer drought with the performance, but he appears poised on the brink of an offensive eruption -- his 20.6 percent walk rate is more than double last year's mark, while his Statcast page is covered in red ink as he sits in the 99th percentile in barrel rate and 91st percentile in xwOBA. That's translated into a .247/.402/.506 slash line through 102 plate appearances with five homers, 11 RBI and 20 runs.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Tallies two extra-base hits

    Greene went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, a triple, an RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's 9-7 loss to the Rangers. While Greene's batting average is still a bit underwhelming at .239, his .849 OPS is stronger due to eight extra-base knocks through 19 games. In fact, exactly half of the outfielder's hits have gone for extra bases so far. Greene is heating up, and with his ability to leg out doubles or hit the ball over the wall, he should be primed for good numbers the rest of the way.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Moves up to leadoff spot

    Greene is starting at shortstop and batting leadoff Friday against the Twins. The 23-year-old has primarily hit out of the cleanup spot this season but has also hit second and third, and he'll now make his way to the top of the lineup. Parker Meadows had served as Detroit's leadoff man against right-handed pitching to this point, but it appears his 2-for-25 start is getting him bumped down the order. Greene should see a boost in runs atop the order, though that'll likely be at the expense of RBI.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Goes deep in doubleheader

    Greene went 2-for-6 with three walks, a solo home run and an additional run scored across both games of Thursday's doubleheader against the Mets. Greene did most of his damage in the first game, when he launched his second home run of the young season in the eighth inning. The outfielder is scuffling a bit with a .143 average across six contests, though two of his three total hits so far have left the yard. Greene should get that batting average up, and if he keeps hitting for power, he should be able to put up big numbers.
