Unfortunately, just prior to the start of the season, news broke that Greene had injured his foot and would miss a couple of months.
Riley Greene is ready to get back to the Detroit Tigers
According to a report from the Detroit Free Press, the Tigers have made a rehab decision on Greene and he will be getting things started in Low-A Lakeland before heading to Triple-A Toledo.
The 21-year-old will play center field Friday for five innings and serve as the designated hitter Saturday for nine innings. After Saturday’s game, barring any setbacks, the top prospect will travel Sunday to join Triple-A Toledo.
Greene is expected to be in the Mud Hens’ lineup for Monday’s game against Triple-A Columbus in Columbus, Ohio. He is slated to play Monday, Wednesday and Thursday (Tuesday is an off day for Toledo).
It was also noted that there is no timetable set in stone in regards to when Riley Greene will join the Tigers.
When Riley Greene does return to the Detroit Tigers, the hope is that he will give them a boost as the offense has been struggling all season long.
