Though it’s surprising that right-hander Shane Greene remains on the free agent market a month into the season, the former Brave is engaged in ongoing deliberations with multiple teams, per Jon Heyman of MLB Network (via Twitter).
Heyman doesn’t give any indication as to who the interested parties might be, but there are any number of teams that could use another arm for the bullpen. Greene certainly has the experience to be an asset. The seven-year veteran owns a 4.38 career ERA/4.07 career FIP in 444 innings over 313 career games. He made 33 starts for the Yankees and Tigers over the first three seasons of his career, but settled in as a high-leverage reliever after that.
Though Greene saved 65 games for the Tigers from 2016 to 2019, the 32-year-old took on a setup role once transferred to a contender in Atlanta. The Braves deployed Greene most often in the eighth inning. In the year and a half since he was acquired from the Tigers for Joey Wentz and Travis Demeritte, Greene posted a 3.27 ERA/3.87 FIP over 51 1/3 innings for the Braves.
