Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Suffers setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner (back) was returned from his minor-league rehab assignment and remains on the injured list.

Greiner made four appearances with High-A Lakeland but hasn't appeared in a game since July 7, and he went 0-for-9 with three walks during his brief stint in the minors. The 26-year-old landed on the injured list in mid-June with a back strain and appeared to be nearing his return to the majors, but he suffered a setback and is without a timetable to return.

He has been out since June 13 with a lower-back strain, but this rehab assignment suggests he is nearing activation. Bobby Wilson has been serving as the de facto primary catcher in Greiner's absence.

Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Out of lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.

Greiner will sit for the second time in the three-game series against Minnesota, with John Hicks starting at catcher and batting eighth. Greiner is still technically atop the Tigers' catching depth chart, though the team is splitting work nearly evenly between him and Hicks. Greiner's .170/.241/.293 slash line certainly isn't helping his case for more playing time.

Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mets.

Greiner will sit for the second time during the series while John Hicks picks up another turn behind the dish.

Over 13 appearances in May, Greiner has gone 4-for-45 (.089 average) with 18 strikeouts.
