Player Outlook
Riley Greene was one of a handful of hitters who needed Tommy John surgery at the end of the 2023 season. Greene's surgery was on his non-throwing elbow, so it should not impact the timeline of his return to the field. The impact to his swing and production will be another story. Green had a successful rookie season hitting for a solid average, accepting walks while flashing his overall athleticism. The biggest flaw on Greene's young resume is the swing and miss which leads to a bottom quartile strikeout rate but good things happen more often than not when he does get bat to ball. He was not afford much time facing lefties as a rookie, but hit .279 in 93 plate appearances, but all 11 of his homers came against righties. Detroit saw enough from him to have him hitting second or third when he did start, and we should not expect that lineup position to change in 2024. He may get off to a slow start coming off surgery, but the volume should be there in the end.

Fantasy News

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Receives breather Friday

    Greene is out of the lineup for Friday's game at Minnesota, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Greene started Detroit's first 19 games of the season but will receive a well-deserved day off for the series opener versus the Twins. Wenceel Perez will take over in right field and bat second.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Tallies two extra-base hits

    Greene went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, a triple, an RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's 9-7 loss to the Rangers. While Greene's batting average is still a bit underwhelming at .239, his .849 OPS is stronger due to eight extra-base knocks through 19 games. In fact, exactly half of the outfielder's hits have gone for extra bases so far. Greene is heating up, and with his ability to leg out doubles or hit the ball over the wall, he should be primed for good numbers the rest of the way.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Reaches, scores twice in win

    Greene went 1-for-3 with a walk, a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 8-2 win over the Twins. Greene moved up to the leadoff spot for the first time this season and responded with a strong game. Perhaps the lineup shuffle will jump-start the 23-year-old, as he's still batting just .214. However, Greene does have a solid .829 OPS, and if he continues to make consistent contact, huge numbers could be right around the corner.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Moves up to leadoff spot

    Greene is starting at shortstop and batting leadoff Friday against the Twins. The 23-year-old has primarily hit out of the cleanup spot this season but has also hit second and third, and he'll now make his way to the top of the lineup. Parker Meadows had served as Detroit's leadoff man against right-handed pitching to this point, but it appears his 2-for-25 start is getting him bumped down the order. Greene should see a boost in runs atop the order, though that'll likely be at the expense of RBI.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Hits third homer in defeat

    Greene went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's loss to the A's. Greene's eighth inning shot to right center just cleared the wall and represented the lone run for the Tigers on Sunday. Despite a slow start to the season that has seen him collect just six hits in 32 at-bats through nine games, Greene has homered three times thus far, showing some early power after collecting a total of 16 dingers over 754 at-bats during his first two seasons with the Tigers.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Goes deep in doubleheader

    Greene went 2-for-6 with three walks, a solo home run and an additional run scored across both games of Thursday's doubleheader against the Mets. Greene did most of his damage in the first game, when he launched his second home run of the young season in the eighth inning. The outfielder is scuffling a bit with a .143 average across six contests, though two of his three total hits so far have left the yard. Greene should get that batting average up, and if he keeps hitting for power, he should be able to put up big numbers.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Hits first 2024 home run

    Greene went 1-for-4 with a walk, a solo home run and two runs scored in Saturday's 7-6, 10-inning win over the White Sox. Greene's first home run of the year in the seventh inning helped the Tigers erase a 6-4 deficit in the frame and force extra innings. The talented outfielder had Tommy John surgery at the end of last season and may need some time to get rolling in 2024, though all the tools are there for him to have a big campaign. Greene recorded 11 home runs and a .796 OPS across 99 games in 2023.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Keeps rolling Monday

    Greene went 1-for-2 with a double in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros and is now batting .350 this spring. Greene's spring debut was delayed slightly as he recovered from his September Tommy John surgery, but the talented outfielder has hit the ground running. He's gone 7-for-20 in nine Grapefruit League contests, with three of those hits going for extra bases. Greene looks ready for the regular season, and the toolsy 23-year-old could be poised for a breakout campaign if he stays healthy.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Back in action

    Greene (elbow) will start in right field and bat leadoff in Tuesday's split-squad game against the Blue Jays, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports. Greene's spring debut was delayed slightly after he had Tommy John surgery on his right (non-throwing) elbow last September. He was able to make his Grapefruit League debut as the designated hitter Monday and is now ready to take the field for the first time this spring. He showed significant improvement at the plate last season, adding more than 100 points in OPS, and Greene figures to take another step forward as Detroit's everyday right fielder in his age-23 campaign.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Faces live pitching

    Greene (elbow) took live batting practice Tuesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. It's the first time he's faced live pitching since he underwent Tommy John surgery on his right (non-throwing) elbow in September. Greene noted that he "didn't even think about my arm" during the session, adding that he's felt "normal" for a while now. While the Tigers are likely to ease Greene into Grapefruit League action, he's fully expected to be ready to roll come Opening Day.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Set to face live pitching

    Greene (elbow) is scheduled to face live pitching this week, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Greene may not be included in Detroit's initial lineups when the team kicks off Grapefruit League play Saturday, but he doesn't appear to be far behind the team's other healthy hitters as he works his way back from the Tommy John surgery he had on his right (non-throwing) elbow in September. He's performing all other baseball activities, so he should be cleared to play in games as soon as the Tigers are confident that he's swinging the bat at full speed without discomfort.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Expects to play Grapefruit opener

    Greene (elbow) expects to be ready to play at the beginning of the Tigers' Grapefruit League schedule, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports. The Tigers' plan for the outfielder is to mix him in at both designated hitter and the outfield in the early going this spring. Greene is just five months removed from Tommy John surgery, but because it was on his right (non-throwing) elbow, he's on an accelerated timeline which will have him ready to roll for Opening Day.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Swing feels good

    Greene (elbow) said Monday that his post-Tommy John surgery swing "really feels normal now," Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Greene is just shy of five months removed from Tommy John surgery on his right (non-throwing) elbow and has been swinging a bat for around a month. The young outfielder might be eased into action this spring, but his availability for Opening Day doesn't appear to be at all in question.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Working out at spring complex

    Greene (elbow) has been hitting, playing catch and going through some defensive drills at the Tigers' spring training complex in Florida, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports. Greene is not even four months removed from Tommy John surgery, but because the operation was on his right (non-throwing) elbow, he's facing a much shorter rehab window. It's possible Greene will face some restrictions during spring training, but the expectation is that he will be ready to go by Opening Day.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Expected to be ready for next year

    Greene is expected to be ready for the start of next season after he underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday on his right (non-throwing) elbow, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports. Greene needing Tommy John surgery to repair his injured elbow was a worst-case scenario. However, because he's a position player and the operation was on his non-throwing arm, his rehab timeline won't come close to the typical 12-to-18 months for pitcher. It's possible, if not probable, that the Tigers will ease him into things in spring training, but all signs point to Greene being ready to roll come Opening Day. The young outfielder batted .288/.349/.447 with 11 homers across 416 plate appearances in 2023.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Moves to 60-day IL

    The Tigers transferred Greene (elbow) to the 60-day injured list Wednesday. After undergoing season-ending Tommy John surgery Wednesday, per Chris McCosky of The Detroit News, Greene's move to the 60-day IL is simply procedural. Brenan Hanifee was selected from Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday to fill Greene's spot on the 40-man roster.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Undergoing surgery Wednesday

    Greene will undergo surgery on his right elbow Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. The details of the procedure have yet to be revealed, but more will likely be known Wednesday after Greene's surgery. The 22-year-old outfielder has been out since Sept. 2 with an inflamed right elbow, and he'll now almost certainly miss the rest of the season. Greene finishes with a .288/.349/.447 slash line with 11 homers and 37 RBI across 416 plate appearances.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Wanting additional opinions

    Greene said Wednesday he's seeking additional medical opinions on his inflamed right elbow, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. It's unclear what the initial MRI revealed following his move to the 10-day injured list Sept. 2, but Greene apparently wants some more information before determining the next steps of his recovery program. The 22-year-old remains without a timeline for his return but may have already played his last game of 2023 given the Tigers are out of playoff contention and have no need to rush him back into action.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Still being evaluated

    Greene (elbow) is still going through medical evaluation while completing daily rehab, the team announced Tuesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. It seems like the decision of whether Greene can return this season still hangs in the balance. He has been getting tests done and seeing doctors, with an announcement from the team expected this week.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Sitting out Tuesday

    Greene is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cubs, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports. The Cubs are starting southpaw Drew Smyly, offering the opportunity for Greene to receive a day off. Kerry Carpenter is in right field and Parker Meadows is covering center.
