Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner is starting at catcher and batting eighth in Saturday's game against the Pirates.

Following an 11-inning game Friday night, Austin Romine will head to the bench for Saturday's afternoon tilt, allowing Greiner to enter the lineup. Greiner has appeared in five games so far this season and is still in search of his first hit, as he's gone 0-for-7 with five strikeouts.

Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner is starting at catcher and batting eighth in Sunday's game against the Reds.

Greiner picks up his first start of the season as Austin Romine heads to the bench following two straight starts. Greiner beat out Eric Haase for the backup catcher job in summer camp, though he doesn't do enough with the bat to get fantasy managers excited.

Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Secures roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner made the Tigers' 30-man Opening Day roster.

As expected, Greiner will be Detroit's backup catcher, while Eric Haase and Jake Rogers work at the team's alternate training site. Greiner doesn't offer much with the bat and is slotted in behind Austin Romine, so he doesn't look like a great fantasy option at this point.

Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Looks like backup catcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner is expected to serve as the Tigers' backup catcher, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

During spring training, Eric Haase seemed to have the inside track on the backup role to Austin Romine, but Woodbery sounds pretty confident that Greiner will fill that role. He held that job for the Tigers last year, posting a .202/.251/.308 slash line in 58 games. Greiner is unlikely to make a significant fantasy impact in 2020 given his lack of production at the plate.

Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Facing increased competition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner is one of six catchers in the Tigers' 60-man player pool this season.

Before play was suspended in March, Greiner was battling Eric Haase for the backup catcher role behind Austin Romine. While Greiner and Haase are likely still competing for that job, they are now joined in the 60-player group by Jake Rogers, Brady Policelli and 2020 draftee Dillon Dingler. The Tigers are unlikely to rush their young backstops into action, but if Greiner scuffles at the plate like he did last year (.202/.251/.308 slash line in 58 games), Detroit may turn to other options.

Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Battling for reserve role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner is competing with Eric Haase to be Detroit's backup catcher this season, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

The Tigers signed Austin Romine to a one-year deal in December, and the 31-year-old figures to serve as the team's top catcher when the regular season gets underway. Greiner finished 2019 splitting time with Jake Rogers, but the latter was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday, leaving Greiner and Haase to compete for playing time behind Romine. Greiner has a career .207/.277/.299 slash line in the majors, so even if he is able to secure regular playing time at some point, he is unlikely to offer much from a fantasy perspective.

Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Starting in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner is starting at catcher and batting eighth in Sunday's game against the White Sox.

Greiner sat out for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader, but he'll slide back into the lineup for Sunday's season finale. The 26-year-old hasn't done much offensively with a .205/.255/.312 slash line, and he'll likely compete with Jake Rogers for playing time in Detroit next year.

Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Sitting nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the White Sox, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Greiner went 1-for-3 with two strikeouts during the Game 1 victory. Jake Rogers receives the start behind the plate for the second game of the day.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner is not starting Tuesday against the Twins.

Greiner owns a strong .364/.364/.455 slash line over his last 12 games. Jake Rogers starts behind the plate in his absence.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Not in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner is not starting Wednesday in Cleveland.

Greiner owns an OPS of 1.000 over his last eight games but nevertheless sits for the second time in three days. Jake Rogers gets the nod behind the plate.

Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Doubles, scores in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's 7-2 loss against Cleveland.

Greiner has a sluggish .209 average for the year, though he's been much better in September with a .417 mark. With no other catcher on the roster really standing out this season, Greiner could be in line to serve as the team's top backstop again in 2020 despite lacking much offensive upside.

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

Greiner is not starting Monday against Baltimore.

Greiner has hit .394 over his last nine contests, recording three hits on three separate occasions over that stretch. Jake Rogers starts behind the plate in his absence.

Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Posts three hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's 8-2 loss to the Orioles.

This is Greiner's second three-hit performance in less than a week, as the backstop is showing a little life late in the season. His .570 OPS is nothing to write home about, but it's better than Jake Rogers' .490 mark, and Greiner has been playing more often than Rogers recently.

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

Greiner is not starting Wednesday against the Yankees.

Greiner has been claiming the top spot behind the plate in Detroit, starting four of the last five games heading into Wednesday's contest. Jake Rogers gets the nod this time.

Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Posts three hits against Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner went 3-for-5 with a double, a run scored and two RBI in Tuesday's 12-11 win over the Yankees.

Greiner recorded just his third three-hit game of the season, though two of them have come this month. The 26-year-old backstop is still batting just .188 this year with a .541 OPS, but Jake Rogers has been even worse (.460 OPS).

Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Monday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Greiner will join the Tigers ahead of Tuesday's series opener against Kansas City and provide the team with additional catching depth for the stretch run. He's failed to impress across 43 games with the big club this season, slashing .162/.231/.279 with five home runs and a 33.7 percent strikeout rate in 169 plate appearances.

Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Activated and optioned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner (back) was activated from the 60-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Toledo.

Greiner has been sidelined since mid-June with a back strain. While he's set to return to the field, the team has elected to continue to give Jake Rogers and John Hicks the majority of playing time at the major-league level. Prior to the injury, Greiner hit .162/.231/.279 across 169 plate appearances with Detroit.

Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Targeting September return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner (back) is expected to be activated from the 60-day injured list in September, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Greiner has been on the shelf since June 14 due to a low back strain, and after fighting through a setback, he's inching closer to a return. He's currently rehabbing with Triple-A Toledo, though considering his lengthy absence, he'll need at least a handful of games in the minors before returning.

August 17, 2019 02:44 PM
Tigers' Grayson Greiner: Rehab moving to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiner (back) will continue his rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo.

He moves from High-A Lakeland to Triple-A for the final step of his rehab assignment. Once healthy, Greiner should serve as Jake Rogers' backup.
