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.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Will only pitch to begin season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reds senior director of player development Jeff Graupe said Wednesday that Greene will be used exclusively as a pitcher early on at Low-A Dayton this season, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports. However, Graupe noted the organization isn't "closing the door on developing [Greene] offensively."

At least for the time being, it looks like Greene and the other two-way player (the Rays' Brendan McKay) selected in the top five of the 2017 first-year player draft will follow opposite development tracks, with McKay prepared to see most of his action at first base during his first year of full-season ball. In Greene's case, it's not surprising the perennially pitching-starved Reds are more interested in seeing what he can do on the mound, where his 6-foot-4 frame and upper-90s fastball could make him a staff headliner at his peak. The right-hander's main focus this season will likely be in improving his secondary offerings, so expect some growing pains as the 18-year-old experiments with his repertoire.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Will make Low-A debut next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene will make his Low-A debut for Dayton on Monday, April 9, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports. This is ahead of the Reds' original schedule for Greene. "Just looking at what he's accomplished this offseason and what his throwing program looked like to accomplish that, we wanted to get him out under the lights in front of the fans and take advantage of the fact that he's pretty sharp right now," Reds senior director of player development Jeff Graupe said.

Greene turned heads with his performances on the back fields in spring training, so instead of him toiling in extended spring training in Arizona, Greene will make the jump up to full-season ball. He will have some form of season-long workload limit this year, though the Reds haven't specified what that will be -- only that it will be based on total pitches thrown, not innings.

Reds' Hunter Greene: Turns heads in intrasquad game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greene was dominant in his two-inning intrasquad outing Tuesday, yielding an infield single and hitting a batter while striking out three, J.J. Cooper of Baseball America reports.

Cooper clocked Greene's fastball in the 95-to-99 mile-per-hour range and relayed that the right-hander induced eight swings and misses with his 31 pitches. Greene, who is also regarded as a plus power hitter, still needs to further refine his secondary offerings, but the 19-year-old has thus far justified the hype he has received since being selected No. 2 overall in the 2017 first-year player draft.
