Generates sink to both sides of plate, run can be inconsistent, will flash plus movement; works side to side, keeps it down in zone consistently; command over control presently, maintained sitting velocity through start, touched 97 in 5th inning; maintains velocity from stretch
Advanced feel, flashes plus fade with drop, healthy velocity separation from FB, can throw hitters off balance; lowers arm slot at release, tendency to elevate in zone
12-6 shape, limited horizontal break, mostly vertical depth with sharp bite; shape can be inconsistent, flatten; uses low in zone, frequent low misses, release point raises when throwing
Struggles to limit walks; capable of throwing all pitches for strikes, tends to play off corners too much
Feel to spot pitches, works effectively to both sides with the fastball, keeps the ball down
A seventh-round pick in 2013, Greene is a lanky right-hander with two plus pitches and a third average offering. The fastball can get to plus-plus, with sink and run to both sides of the plate and feel for manipulating it in spite of some struggles to control it at times. The fastball, changeup, and curve all come from different release points, which can impact deception. Limiting self-inflicted damage will be greatest impediment to success, and the control issues will limit the likely role to the back half of a rotation.
