Tigers | Shane Greene headed to DL

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 09:44:26 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene (finger) will miss at least two starts, so he will be placed on the disabled list with a blister on his middle finger Thursday, April 28, retroactive to Monday, April 25, according to manager Brad Ausmus. SP Michael Fulmer, the team's top pitching prospect, will come up to start Friday, April 29, against the Minnesota Twins. There is no guarantee that Fulmer will make both of the starts filling in for Greene, though.

Fantasy Tip: Fulmer deserves attention in AL-only and keeper leagues, but because his stay could be short in the majors this time around, keep your bids conservative if you're speculating or planning to use him in a spot start against the Twins in deep mixed affairs. You can likely drop Greene in deep mixed leagues in favor of healthier options.

Tigers | Shane Greene unlikely to make next start

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 14:28:20 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene (finger) is unlikely to make his next scheduled start, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown who will start in Greene's place for his next start, but Buck Farmer could be the most likely option. He was recalled this week to help out the bullpen, but he has spot-starting experience. Farmer shouldn't move the needle much in any fantasy format.

Tigers | Shane Greene's next start up in air

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 14:50:12 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene (finger) is undecided for his next scheduled start, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: Greene is still a candidate to land on the DL, so approach his next start with caution in deeper and daily leagues if he winds up pitching. It's unknown who would take Greene's spot in the rotation if he misses a start or two. Stay tuned.

Tigers | Shane Greene won't throw for a while

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 22:26:38 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene (blister) will not throw for at least a few days after exiting with a blister issue. The team is uncertain if he'll need a stint on the 15-day disabled list or not.

Fantasy Tip: Greene is a risky fantasy play heading into the new scoring period in weekly leagues, so reserve him in all AL-only leagues. DFS players won't want to bother with him, either, until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Tigers | Shane Greene exits with blister issue

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:37:23 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene (finger) left his start on Sunday, April 24, after suffering a blister on his right middle finger, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Greene allowed a run over three-plus frames before departing, and it's obviously too early to determine whether he will be able to make his next scheduled start or not. As things stand right now, Matt Boyd appears to be the most likely candidate to make a sneaky (and perhaps strong under-the-radar) spot start versus the Minnesota Twins on Friday if Greene is forced to miss time.

Tigers | Shane Greene could remain in rotation

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 15:31:05 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene could stick in the starting rotation if he pitches well, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: Greene's injuries wiped out his 2015 season, but with good health and a rotation spot he could return to his 2014 levels and return nice value in deeper mixed and AL-only leagues. Keep an eye on him.

Tigers | Shane Greene to start Monday

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 15:05:56 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene will start against the Pittsburgh Pirates Monday, April 11, according to manager Brad Ausmus.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries ruined Greene's 2015 season, but with better health he could return numbers more in line with his 2014 campaign (5-4, 3.78 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, 9.3 K/9). It's unknown how long he'll last in the rotation, though, so he's mainly an AL-only weapon. Starting him in daily formats versus the Pirates next Monday doesn't seem wise.

Tigers | Rotation spot iffy for Daniel Norris

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 13:04:30 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Daniel Norris (back) is still awaiting results of tests concerning his lower back stiffness and likely has not built up his pitch count enough to begin the season in the starting rotation. SP Shane Greene is expected to win the job as the No. 5 starter to begin the season, in the opinion of the Detroit Free Press' Anthony Fenech. SPs Buck Farmer and Matt Boyd are also still in consideration, though.

Fantasy Tip: Norris had the inside track on the gig, but between his poor spring (6.00 ERA through six innings) and his current back injury, he appears to be firmly behind Greene. Neither are anything more than cavernous mixed and AL-only options, and Greene's 6.88 ERA last season shouldn't tempt making him a fantasy priority. Expect Norris to win out in the long run. Farmer and Boyd aren't fantasy relevant at this stage.

Tigers | Three to compete for Detroit rotation

Mon, 30 Nov 2015 09:03:24 -0800

Detroit Tigers SPs Daniel Norris, Matt Boyd and Shane Greene are set to compete for the fifth starting rotation spot in spring training next year after the team signed SP Jordan Zimmermann to head their rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Norris has the most fantasy upside of this trio, but he must prove that he's 100% following a cancer scare this offseason. The lefty was involved in the trade last year that sent David Price to the Toronto Blue Jays. If Norris wins a rotation spot, he is certainly worth a late-round stab in deep mixed formats.

Tigers | Shane Greene undergoes surgery

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 17:57:00 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene (shoulder) underwent season-ending surgery Thursday, Aug. 27, in Dallas, to repair a weakened blood vessel in his right shoulder which caused numbness in his pitching hand by pressing against a nerve.

Fantasy Tip: Greene is expected to be able to do his normal offseason conditioning program and should be ready for spring training. You can drop him in all fantasy formats.
