Shane Greene has been DFA'd by the Braves.
This should be no surprise to anyone as Greene carried an 8.47 ERA and 1.82 WHIP in 19 outings. Greene was an all-star just two years ago. However, those days seem to be gone now.
Shane Greene made his 2021 debut tonight against the Phillies, pitching for 1/3 of an inning, allowing three hits, and two runs (both earned), while striking out one batter. He collected a blown save for the outing.
Hopefully, Greene will bounce back from this and prove to be a more reliable reliever moving forward.
The Braves called up reliever Shane Greene on Sunday. They sent down pitcher Jacob Webb in a corresponding move.
At this time, Greene doesn't hold any fantasy value since the Braves' closer situation is locked up by Will Smith. He could earn value in saves plus holds leagues, but we need to see it first.
Braves pitcher Shane Greene could return in a few days, per manager Brian Snitker.
Greene signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Braves in early May. He returned to the Braves after pitching for them in 2019 and 2020. The 32-year-old will most likely be used in high-leverage situations and could be in the mix for save opportunities. Greene owned a 2.60 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and a 21:9 K: BB across 27 2/3 innings last season.
Shane Greene agrees to a one-year deal with the Braves worth $1.5 million.
Greene returns to the Braves after pitching with them in 2019 and 2020. After the Tigers traded him to the Braves in the middle of 2019, Greene has a 3.27 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP, a 20% strikeout rate, and a 6.7% walk rate. He likely won't factor into the saves conversation with only one save in 52.1 innings with the Braves.
