Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 30 Hits from a crouched even stance with a leg kick for timing; muscled body; longer swing path; slow hands; fair eye; below-average bat speed; struggles with pitches on the inner half.
Power 40 Average raw power; has natural strength with some loft; plays to below-average due to in-game utility and longer swing.
Baserunning/Speed 30 Not a runner; best time of 4.50; is not a basestealing threat.
Glove 50 Fair defensively; surprisingly athletic behind plate given size; blocks pitches in front and side-to-side; fair hands on transfer.
Arm 60 Plus throwing arm; 1.90 to 2B; struggles with accuracy at times; fair hands on transfer.

Greiner had some promise initially but has had issues since a hamate injury in 2014. At this point he has some major-league value as a defensive back-up who works well with a pitching staff, but is also likely to be a quality org player.
