Tigers' Shane Greene: Blows second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene gave up a solo home run to Yoan Moncada in the 10th inning to blow his second save of the season during an eventual 9-6 loss to the White Sox in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

His only other blown assignment came May 23 against the Marlins. Greene still boasts a 1.13 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 32:9 K:BB through 32 innings on the year in addition to his 22 saves, and he remains one of the most likely closers to get shipped to a contender by the trade deadline.

Tigers' Shane Greene: Posts 22nd save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene pitched a perfect ninth inning with two strikeouts to earn his 22nd save in a 7-5 victory over the Nationals on Saturday.

The 30-year-old doesn't pitch a whole lot or receive a ton of save opportunities because of his team, but he's been lights-out when he has been on the mound. Greene hasn't allowed an earned run since May 3. He is 0-2 and 22-for-23 in save chances with a 0.87 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 32 strikeouts in 31 innings this year.

Tigers' Shane Greene: Records 21st save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene posted his 21st save of the season despite allowing a hit and a walk in the ninth against the Pirates on Tuesday.

He was on the verge of disaster with Josh Bell at the plate, two runners on base and only one out, but Greene induced a game-ending double play against the MVP candidate. Greene has now saved 21 of the Tigers' 26 wins this season. He is 0-2 with a 0.93 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 29 strikeouts in 29 innings this season. Greene is also 21-for-22 in save chances.

Tigers' Shane Greene: Records another save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene worked around a hit and a walk to fire a scoreless ninth inning and record the save in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Pirates.

It wasn't the smoothest outing for Greene, but the Tigers' closer worked out of trouble by inducing a Josh Bell double-play grounder with runners on first and second to end the game. Greene now has 21 saves and a microscopic 0.93 ERA this season, as he continues to enhance his trade value ahead of the deadline.

Tigers' Shane Greene: Notches 20th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Shane Greene: Records save No. 20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene worked around a hit to fire a scoreless ninth inning and record a save in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Royals.

Detroit is sitting at 25-39, and Greene has recorded saves in 20 of those wins. 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 of work. The struggling Tigers could decide to move Greene before the trade deadline while his value is at a high-water mark.

Tigers' Shane Greene: Notches 19th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene allowed one hit in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save in Tuesday's 9-6 win over the Rays. He had one strikeout and zero walks.

It didn't look like Greene's services would be required Tuesday with the Tigers leading 9-2 heading into the eighth inning, but a grand slam closed the gap and gave him the chance to secure his 19th save. The 30-year-old has a 1.08 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 28:7 K:BB this season and has blown only one save in 20 chances.

May 30, 2019 02:28 AM
Tigers' Shane Greene: Records 18th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene allowed one hit but struck out two in the ninth inning to record the save Wednesday against the Orioles

Greene was given a two-run cushion as he entered the game in the ninth inning. While he did allow a two-out double, he got Pedro Severino to fly out to end the game and secure his 18th save of the season. Greene has blown only one save on the season, producing a pristine 1.13 ERA and 0.83 WHIP with 27 strikeouts across 24 innings.

Tigers' Shane Greene: Nails down 17th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene worked a scoreless ninth inning with a strikeout to record the save in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Orioles.

Greene continues to rack up the saves, as he now has 17 in 18 opportunities this season to go with a stellar 1.17 ERA. The Tigers only have 20 wins this season, so they've clearly relied quite heavily on their closer. After posting a 5.12 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in 2018, Greene has been markedly better this year, and if nothing else, he's significantly increased his trade value the first few months of the season.

May 24, 2019 11:00 PM
Tigers' Shane Greene: Records 16th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene pitched a perfect ninth inning to record the save in Friday's 9-8 win over the Mets.

Greene needed just seven pitches to retire the Mets' top three hitters and record his 16th save of the season. It's been 12 days in between saves for the veteran, with one blown save in that time for good measure, as a 19-29 Detroit squad has struggled to present him with leads to protect. Greene still has plenty of fantasy value, however, as he has a strong 1.23 ERA and a pretty firm hold on the closer role.

May 12, 2019 08:28 PM
Tigers' Shane Greene: Gets 15th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene gave up one hit while striking out one through a scoreless inning Sunday to record his 15th save in a 5-3 win over the Twins.

The right-hander allowed the tying run to get to the plate with two outs, but he retired C.J. Cron promptly to earn the save. After not registering a save since May 3, Greene has delivered a closure on consecutive days, the latest success in a resurgent campaign, during which he has a 0-1 record with a 1.50 ERA and 15 saves.

May 11, 2019 07:28 PM
Tigers' Shane Greene: Grabs 14th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene picked up the save with a scoreless ninth inning Saturday against the Twins, allowing one hit and striking out one batter.

Greene worked around a one-out single to preserve a two-run lead. The save was his 14th of the season, four more than any other pitcher in the American League.

Tigers' Shane Greene: Notches save despite homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene secured his 13th save of the season Friday against the Royals, allowing one run on two hits while striking out two in one inning.

While Greene got the job done, he was far from dominant in this one. The right-hander entered with a two-run lead and proceeded to fan the first batter he faced before serving up a solo homer to Jorge Soler. Greene recorded another strikeout before allowing a two-out double to Ryan O'Hearn, whom he ultimately left stranded there by getting Martin Maldonado to pop out. The 30-year-old Greene is now a perfect 13-for-13 on save chances and owns a 1.80 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 19:3 K:BB through 15 innings.

Tigers' Shane Greene: Stays perfect in save opportunities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene struck out the side in a scoreless ninth inning to record the save in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Phillies.

Greene allowed a leadoff single to J.T. Realmuto but then settled in to strike out three straight Philadelphia hitters to end the game. The veteran closer is now a perfect 12-for-12 in save opportunities this season to go along with a stellar 1.29 ERA.

Tigers' Shane Greene: Locks down 11th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene struck out two hitters in a scoreless ninth inning to record the save in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Red Sox, which the Tigers won 4-2.

Greene is now 11-for-11 in save opportunities this season with a tiny 1.38 ERA. This has certainly exceeded expectations, as the 30-year-old closer posted a 5.12 ERA in 2018 and was expected to possibly give way to Joe Jimenez at some point this year. Greene has instead solidified his hold on the ninth-inning role with his strong play so far.

April 21, 2019 08:28 PM
Tigers' Shane Greene: Picks up 10th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene struck out two in a perfect ninth inning to record the save in a 4-3 win over the White Sox on Sunday.

Greene now has 10 saves in 10 opportunities this season to go along with a sparkling 1.50 ERA. The 30-year-old closer blew six saves and posted a 5.12 ERA in 2018, so regression could be coming, but Greene is worth riding while he's pitching like this.

Tigers' Shane Greene: Earns ninth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene nailed down his league-leading ninth save in a 9-7 victory against the White Sox on Thursday.

He walked a batter and didn't strike anyone out, but Greene didn't yield a hit, and it was a pretty uneventful ninth. He's been great early this season with a 1.64 ERA and 0.64 WHIP. Greene took a loss against the Pirates on Tuesday, but he is 9-for-9 in save opportunities with 10 strikeouts in 11 innings as well.

April 18, 2019 12:00 PM
Tigers' Shane Greene: Strikes out two in scoreless frame
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene pitched a scoreless ninth inning with two strikeouts and a walk during a 3-2 loss to the Pirates on Wednesday.

The Tigers closer took the loss Tuesday, but he bounced back in a non-save situation Wednesday, giving the Tigers a chance to walk off in the ninth. Greene has experienced a strong start to the year, converting eight save opportunities with a 1.80 ERA and 0.60 WHIP. He also has 10 strikeouts in 10 frames.

April 17, 2019 12:08 AM
Tigers' Shane Greene: Takes loss Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene (0-1) allowed two runs on two hits and took the loss in Tuesday's game against the Pirates. He struck out one.

Greene came into the night with a sparkling 0.00 ERA, but the Pirates were able to get to the veteran in the 10th inning, with Starling Marte's two-run home run the decisive blow in a 5-3 win. Detroit's closer is still 8-for-8 in save situations, as he entered this game with the score tied 3-3. He'll look to rebound from this hiccup in his next outing.

April 10, 2019 10:52 PM
Tigers' Shane Greene: Stays perfect in save opportunities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene pitched a scoreless ninth inning with a strikeout to record the save in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Indians, and he is now 8-for-8 in save opportunities this season.

It sounds like a broken record by now, but the Tigers won and Greene ended the game. Detroit is 8-4 this season, and the 30-year-old closer has saves in all eight victories. The Tigers weren't projected to win much this season, and Greene's 5.12 ERA in 2018 didn't inspire much confidence heading into the year, but the veteran is certainly worth riding while he's hot.
