Padres Acquire Tyler Greene From Braves

The Padres have acquired infielder Tyler Greene from the Braves in exchange for a player to be named later, reports David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (via Twitter).

Greene, 30, was playing at Triple-A for the Atlanta organization. He has seen action at the MLB level in each of the last five seasons, though never more than the 116 games he appeared in over the 2012 campaign. For his career, Greene has a .224.289/.356 triple-slash in 746 plate appearances. He has appeared mostly at short and second, but has seen timeĀ at every other position on the diamond except the battery.

The Braves just got better.

The Braves just got nothing, seeing how the only change occurred on their AAA affiliate.

Looking forward to his arrival. I hope that he still has a few hits left in him.

With all the injuries on the infield in El Paso and San Antonio, it will be good to have another warm body that owns an infield glove.

Organizational depth with Ryan Jackson hurt

Yeah I doubt he would have ever sniffed the major league roster with everyone healthy (Pena/Uggla/Pastor and La Stella waiting in the wings)

Wow, they must be desperate for middle infield depth in San Diego. Greene fits the definition of a AAAA player so well he should just go play in Japan rather than keep embarrassing himself in the MiLB/MLB system.
