Reds' Hunter Greene: Moves up to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds promoted Greene from Double-A Chattanooga to Triple-A Louisville on Sunday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 first-year player draft has been magnificent in his return to action in 2021 after having his last two seasons of minor-league ball wiped out by Tommy John surgery and the coronavirus pandemic. Through his seven outings at Chattanooga, Greene posted a 1.98 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 60:14 K:BB in 41 innings, which was enough to convince the Reds he was ready for a stiffer test. The Reds will likely remain cognizant of managing Greene's innings carefully the rest of the way, but if the big club remains in playoff contention in the second half and if the 21-year-old continues to perform at a high level at Triple-A, he could be in the mix for a late-season promotion to Cincinnati.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Duels with Max Meyer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene won a pitcher's duel for Double-A Chattanooga with Pensacola's Max Meyer on Friday night, throwing six shutout innings while striking out nine, Nick Trujillo of MLB.com reports.

Greene remains on fire for Chattanooga. He has at least seven strikeouts in every start and hasn't allowed more than three runs in any given start. He walked four batters Friday night, which is about the only blemish on his record this year, but even then his 3.1 BB/9 is accompanied by an elevated strikeout rate.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Takes home Double-A honor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene was named the Double-A South Player of the Week after he posted a 1.64 ERA, 0.69 WHIP and 17 strikeouts in 11 innings over his last two starts with Chattanooga.

Despite sitting out the entire 2019 season following Tommy John surgery and then not pitching in 2020 due to the cancellation of the minor-league season, Greene hasn't missed a beat in his return to competitive action. Through his first three outings at Chattanooga, Greene has used his blazing triple-digit fastball to rack up 25 strikeouts while holding hitters to a .143 average over 16 innings. The 21-year-old right-hander looks to be neck and neck with Double-A rotation mate Nick Lodolo as the best pitching prospect in Cincinnati's organization.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Dominant first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene won his first start in a real game in 1,014 days on Wednesday, allowing one run over five innings at Double-A Chattanooga. He struck out eight while giving up three hits and no walks. Thirty-seven of his 43 fastballs were clocked at 100 mph or higher, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

It wasn't just that the velocity was there, though that was pretty impressive in its own right. But his placement of the fastball was better, and he got three strikeouts looking on his slider. The latter aspect of his start is critical -- for his fastball to be effective, he needs to make his slider a credible threat to opposing hitters.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Hits triple digits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene's first three pitches in Tuesday's spring training game against the Angels hit 101, 102 and 103 mph respectively, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. It was Greene's first game action since 2018. "His fastball is elite," catcher Tucker Barnhart underscored. "If you look in the baseball dictionary, and 'easy cheese' was in there, it would be like a picture or video of him. It's incredible how hard he throws."

While the easy velocity was impressive, Greene struggled to get outs, albeit against major-league hitters. He allowed three earned runs on three hits and a walk, striking out one. Considering that Greene hasn't pitched above A ball yet, he'll surely open the season in the minors, likely at High-A Dayton.

Reds' Hunter Greene: To start Tuesday's exhibition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene is scheduled to start Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Angels, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Both of Cincinnati's top pitching prospects are slated to make their spring debuts in this one, as Nick Lodolo is expected to come in sometime after Greene exits. Greene's fastball velocity is reportedly all the way back to pre-surgery levels, so developing his offspeed pitches and his command will be the top areas of focus this year for the young fireballer.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Velocity returns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene (elbow) was able to regain his 100 mph fastball velocity while recently throwing at the Reds' alternate training site, Bobby Nightengale Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

This is a big year for Greene, who hasn't pitched in game action since 2018. He still needs to improve his offspeed offerings and his command, let alone make it through a full season healthy.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Joins 60-player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene (elbow) was added to the Reds' 60-player roster pool Wednesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

One of the organization's top prospects, Greene wasn't included in the team's initial 60-man group, but he'll report to the alternate training site with summer camp reaching its conclusion. The 20-year-old is working his way back from Tommy John surgery in April 2019, so the structured team workouts should be a major benefit given the cancellation of the minor-league season.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Not on 60-man player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene (elbow) was not named to the Reds' 60-man player pool, but it's possible the Reds could still add him, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

An earlier report suggested that the Reds' roster would be heavily weighted in favor of players who could help the team in the short term, and general manager Nick Krall's comment reinforces that notion. "Hunter's coming back from Tommy John. He's pretty much finished his rehab, building up," Krall said. "He's a guy we're trying to figure out how to maximize this year for him. We want to continue to progress him forward. He wasn't a consideration now, but we have three spots open and you can always add people at a later date if and when someone's ready to be put on the (60-man) roster."

Reds' Hunter Greene: Potential taxi squad player
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

While the Reds are going to emphasize adding players that can help them win now to their taxi squad, they will take some prospects, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "Our philosophical decision is to build that group to support the team to win this year," Reds' president of baseball operations Dick Williams said. "We're leaning toward putting players at that alternate site we know can come to the big leagues and help us win soon. We will make sure those needs are met first before we worry about prioritizing development."

Greene is likely to be one of those prospects added with an eye towards the future, just so that he can get some work in with the team's development staff after missing 2019 following his Tommy John surgery.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Throwing bullpen sessions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene (elbow) has been throwing bullpen sessions and said on his personal Twitter account that he is feeling "stronger and better than ever before."

He is recovering from Tommy John surgery that he underwent April 9, 2019. Given the fact that the minor-league season may not begin until June or July, Greene could be fully recovered by the time games resume. He should open the year at High-A.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Set to throw next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene (elbow) is scheduled to begin a throwing program next week, Keenan Singleton of ABC 9 Cincinnati reports.

The No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 first-year player draft, Greene sat out the entire 2019 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in April. Though Greene was viewed as a potential two-way player coming out of high school, the Reds have thus far chosen to develop the right-hander exclusively as a pitcher. Expect Cincinnati to thus take every precaution with the 20-year-old as he ramps up his throwing program, with Greene unlikely to debut at affiliated ball until around midseason at the soonest.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene underwent Tommy John surgery Tuesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The procedure had been scheduled earlier in the month after Greene suffered a setback while recovering from an elbow strain. He won't get back to game action until the middle of the 2020 season.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Headed for Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene is slated for Tommy John surgery, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Greene had been progressing nicely in March, tossing bullpen sessions without issue. However, he evidently suffered a significant setback and will have to go under the knife, effectively ending his 2019 campaign. The 19-year-old prospect hasn't pitched in a game since July of 2018 and likely won't return until around the 2020 All-Star break.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Throwing in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene (elbow) has been throwing bullpen sessions, mixing in all of his pitches so far in spring training, Jim Callis of MLB.com reports. "It's been going really well so far," Greene said. "The progression has been great. Just confidence-wise, I feel like I'm back. I'm confident with every pitch that I throw and focusing on my bullpens and the spots I need to hit and just kind of being in sync with my body."

He suffered a right elbow strain in July and was shut down for the season, but the injury did not require surgery and got back on the mound in December before reporting early to Reds camp in February. Greene started just throwing fastballs and changeups, but progressed to adding his slider and curveball to the mix in late February. He said his goal for 2019 is to stay healthy, total around 120 innings and finish the year at Double-A. The first goal is the most important. If Greene stays healthy, he should shoot up prospect rankings. If the elbow issue pops back up, the opposite would happen.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Hopes to begin throwing in December
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene (elbow) said that his arm feels "fine" and that he hopes to resume throwing in December or January, Bobby Nightengale of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Greene has been rehabbing in Arizona for the past two months after suffering a sprained UCL in his right elbow in late July. Though this sort of injury typically requires Tommy John surgery, Greene elected to go the non-surgical route since he didn't feel any sort of pop in the elbow when the ligament was sprained. A better sense of his timetable should come into focus once he's able to resume throwing.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Out for season with elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene has been shut down for the season with a sprained UCL in his right elbow.

For the moment, Greene appears to have avoided an injury serious enough for him to require Tommy John surgery, though the injury nevertheless seems to be a significant one. He will begin rehab right away and will be evaluated throughout the offseason.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Roughed up Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene lasted just three innings in his start Saturday for Low-A Dayton and gave up five runs on five hits and a walk while striking out three.

After striking out a career-high 10 batters in his last outing July 2, Greene took a step back Saturday in what was his shortest outing since early May. It was at least encouraging that in a poor start, Greene only issued one free pass and allowed two extra-base hits. Greene is now sitting on a 4.69 ERA and 80:20 K:BB over 63.1 innings at Dayton, numbers that look more impressive after accounting for the fact that he's just 18 years old.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Earns first professional win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene picked up his first professional win Sunday for Low-A Dayton, MLB.com's Mike Rosenbaum reports. He gave up one earned run over five innings, striking out eight.

Greene struggled initially for Dayton, and that's reflected in his 6.32 ERA. However, his velocity hasn't diminished and that has translated into a high strikeout rate -- 44 against 15 walks in 31.2 innings. As always, age-to-level (Greene is 18) is important to remember when assessing his performance.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Strikes out eight in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene went three innings in his debut with Low-A Dayton, striking out eight batters while allowing two runs, MLB.com's Jonathan Mayo reports.

Greene was able to light up the radar in all three innings, reaching 100 mph in each inning while working in the 96-100 mph range. He was able to record a number of strikeouts with a slider that was clocked between 85-89 mph.
