Astros Release Tyler Greene

The Astros released infielder Tyler Greene, tweets's Brian McTaggart.  McTaggart notes that Greene will become an unrestricted free agent if he clears waivers on Thursday.

Greene, 29, hit .230/.274/.400 in 330 plate appearances for the Cardinals and Astros last year, playing both middle infield positions.  Astros GM Jeff Luhnow had acquired Greene in August of last year from his former team.  The former first-round pick seemed like the team's projected starter when they traded Jed Lowrie in February, but now they'll go with Ronny Cedeno.
