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.... See More ... See Less

Greene said Wednesday he's seeking additional medical opinions on his inflamed right elbow, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Tigers' Riley Greene: Blasts tape-measure shot in win
Greene went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in Thursday's 3-0 victory over the Twins.
The 22-year-old unloaded on a hanging slider from Kenta Maeda in the sixth inning, sending the offering over the right-center field fence to give Detroit a 1-0 lead. The solo shot left Greene's bat at 110.3 mph and traveled 453 feet, marking the longest homer of his career. The second-year outfielder has performed well since returning from a stress fracture in his left fibula on July 8, sporting a .320/.381/.515 slash line with five home runs across 113 plate appearances during that span. However, Greene's strikeout rate of 25.7 percent and walk rate of 8.0 percent over that same period suggest that some regression may be looming.... See More ... See Less
