Braves' Shane Greene: Blows another save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene was charged with the blown save in Saturday's loss to the Marlins after giving up two hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning, allowing three inherited runners to score.

Newly anointed closer Mark Melancon entered with a four-run lead, but he gave up four one-out hits to create the save chance for Greene. The right-hander gave up a bases-loaded single and a bases-loaded double, but his defense helped him escape when the winning run was thrown out at the plate. Greene now has two blown saves with five runs allowed in his first five appearances (four innings) with the Braves.

Braves' Shane Greene: Loses grip on closer's role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene has lost his job as Atlanta's closer for the time being, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Greene hasn't been able to find his groove since being dealt to the Braves, so skipper Brian Snitker will hand the closer's role to Mark Melancon for now. Given Greene's track record, he'll likely remain in a high-leverage role and could win back the job at a later date, though Melancon will be the primary closer for now, per Burns. Greene picked up a hold after allowing a hit and retiring one batter via the strikeout Friday night against the Marlins.

Braves' Shane Greene: Gives up three-run homer in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene (0-3) allowed three runs on four hits with no walks and a strikeout while taking a loss against the Reds on Sunday.

The 30-year-old isn't off to the best of starts with the Braves. He gave up a run in a blown save Saturday during his Atlanta debut, and then he tossed up a three-run homer in a loss Sunday. Greene is still putting together a very strong season, but his ERA has spiked by nearly a full run during his first two Braves outings. He owns 22 saves with a 2.03 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 44 strikeouts in 40 innings this season.

Braves' Shane Greene: Blows first NL save chance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene gave up a run on three hits and a walk in an inning of relief Saturday to blow his fourth save of the year in a 5-4 extra-inning win over the Reds.

After an impressive first four months of the season for Detroit in which he compiled a 1.18 ERA and 22-for-25 conversion rate on save chances, Greene had an inauspicious debut for Atlanta, although the club was able to win it in the 10th after his stumble. The right-hander should have a long leash as the club's closer, although it is worth noting he hasn't actually picked up a save since June 29 -- blowing his only two save chances in July for a Tigers squad that didn't have many leads to protect.

Braves' Shane Greene: Confirmed as closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene confirmed Thursday that he will close for the Braves, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

This isn't all too surprising, as Greene compiled a shiny 1.18 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 43:18 K:BB in 38 innings with the Tigers prior to being traded to Atlanta. This is a best-case scenario for Greene, who keeps his ninth-inning gig while getting an upgrade in team context. Luke Jackson will move to a setup role as a result.

Braves' Shane Greene: Dealt to Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene was traded from the Tigers to the Braves, Buster Olney of ESPN reports.

While the Braves have decent ninth-inning options on hand -- Luke Jackson and the recently acquired Chris Martin -- Greene seems like a good bet to get the bulk of the save opportunities over the rest of the season. The 30-year-old righty, who is a free agent after the 2020 season, logged a 1.18 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 43:12 K:BB in 38 innings for the Tigers this season. He was 22-for-25 on save chances. This is basically a best-case scenario for Greene's fantasy owners, as he likely keeps a ninth-inning gig while getting an upgrade in team context.

Tigers' Shane Greene: Blows third save Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene blew the save in Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, allowing two runs (one earned) on a hit and a walk in an inning of work. He also struck out three.

Greene blew just his third save of the season in 25 chances when he allowed a two-run home run to Lourdes Gurriel, though Detroit would rally for the win in extra innings. The 30-year-old reliever has been excellent this year despite the hiccup, as he has a 1.25 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 40:11 K:BB across 36 innings, making him an ideal trade candidate for the 30-65 Tigers with the July 31 deadline approaching.

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.

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.

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.
