Reds top prospect RHP Hunter Greene has been shut down for the remainder of the minor league season after reaching his unofficial innings limit.
The good news is Greene isn't hurt. The 22-year-old totaled 106 1/3 innings between Double-A and Triple-A this minor league season, and the Reds simply want to play it safe with their prized prospect. It's the first time that Greene has pitched in September. He was dominant in seven starts at Double-A, turning 41 innings into a 1.98 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. Things were more inconsistent at Triple-A, where Greene registered a 4.13 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. Still, he generated plenty of strikeouts at each level and routinely hit triple digits with his fastball. Greene will enter 2022 at a top-30 overall prospect with a chance to debut at some point next summer.
Reds pitching prospect Hunter Greene will make his next start for Triple-A Louisville, per Bobby Nightengale of the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Greene has dominated in seven starts at Double-A this spring, registering a 1.98 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP, and 60 strikeouts in 41 innings. He should be considered one of the better pitching prospects in all of baseball, and he's an ascending asset in dynasty leagues as well. It'll be fun to monitor how he does against tougher competition this summer.
Hunter Greene continued his electric start to the 2021 minor league season on Friday, striking out 10 while allowing three earned runs in 6 2/3 innings pitched.
Greene allowed seven hits and walked just one. He has shown great control at Double-A thus far, and he continues to pitch reasonably deep into games. Greene's stock is certainly on the rise this spring. He needs to be rostered in every dynasty league right now.
Reds pitching prospect Hunter Greene was once again dominant on Sunday for Double-A Chattanooga, striking out 10 while tossing six scoreless innings.
Greene now has a 1.69 ERA with a 25:3 K:BB through three starts. The No. 2 overall pick from the 2017 draft, Greene is now healthy following his Tommy John surgery from 2019. He looks as good as he ever has right now, which makes him must-have in dynasty leagues where he's still available.
The Cincinnati Reds have announced that Hunter Greene will undergo Tommy John surgery.
It's devastating news for the 2nd overall pick in the 2017 draft, he had a setback last week and the news couldn't be much worse. Greene is the 31st ranked prospect on MLB pipeline and was expected to come up in 2021, this hopefully won't hurt his sky-high potential.
