Astros Shopping Tyler Greene

Tyler Greene, who is out of options, has been told by Astros GM Jeff Luhnow that he will not make the club following the signing of Ronny Cedeno to a Major League deal yesterday, according to Brian T. Smith of the Houston Chronicle. As such, the team is exploring trade possibilities with the 29-year-old infielder (Twitter links).

The Astros acquired Greene, a former first-round pick, from the Cardinals in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations last August. Greene hit .246/.278/.460 with seven homers in 133 plate appearances for Houston following the trade. He has significant Major League experience at second base, shortstop and third base, although both UZR and The Fielding Bible caution that he's a below-average defender at all three positions.

Greene has 689 career plate appearances but just a .224/.292/.356 batting line. He's fared significantly better against left-handed pitching (.720 OPS) than right-handed pitching (.601).
