Tyler Greene went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in a win over the Rays on Friday.

The fifth-inning blast gave the White Sox the lead. Greene, who got the start at second base with Jeff Keppinger (back) sidelined, is 5-for-12 (.417) since being called up from the minors earlier this month. He's unlikely to be relevant in AL-only formats unless Keppinger needs to miss an extended period of time.

White Sox purchased the contract of INF Tyler Greene from Triple-A Charlotte.

Astros released INF Tyler Greene.

Greene will become a free agent assuming he passes through waivers on Thursday. The 29-year-old entered camp as the favorite for the Astros' starting shortstop job, but things changed after the club added Ronny Cedeno over the weekend. He'll try to latch on somewhere as a utility infielder.

Tyler Greene will not make the Astros' Opening Day roster.

Greene is out of options, so the Astros are looking to trade him. He had been the perceived favorite to start at shortstop, but the 'Stros signed Ronny Cedeno and will use him at the position with Marwin Gonzalez. Greene batted just .167/.314/.214 this spring. He'll be no better than a utility infielder wherever he lands.

Tyler Greene and Marwin Gonzalez are currently locked in a battle to become the Astros starter at shortstop to begin the season.

Neither one of them is running away with the opportunity, with Greene looking especially awful. He's hitting just .105 (2-for-19), though he has walked six times and stolen three bases. For fantasy purposes, Greene certainly has the most upside and could deliver double digit totals in home runs and steals, while being a big time liability in batting average.

Tyler Greene went 0-for-3 and committed his fourth error at shortstop Tuesday against the Nationals.

Greene became the Astros' likely starter at shortstop when Jed Lowrie was traded, but he's doing his best to throw the job away with four errors in eight games. He's also just 2-for-17 at the plate, though he does have six walks.

Astros manager Bo Porter wants his team to be hyper-aggressive on the basepaths in 2013 in hopes of creating a competitive edge.

The lineup isn't filled with burners, but guys like Tyler Greene and Justin Maxwell could benefit from having the perpetual green light. Greene, 29, is competing for the starting shortstop job, a role Porter has said he would like to give to one player in lieu of a platoon situation. If Greene ends up earning the lion's share of playing time there, he could be a cheap source of stolen bases in deep fantasy leagues.

Tyler Greene grounded into a double play as a pinch-hitter in his return to action Thursday.

Greene is dealing with some loose particles in the knee and could need cleanup surgery over the offseason, but he'll play through it for now. The infielder is batting .236/.268/.453 with six homers in 33 games since joining the Astros.

Tyler Greene was a late scratch from the Astros' lineup Wednesday due to a right knee injury.

Greene is dealing with some loose particles in the knee, though it sounds like he could be available to play again soon. "My plan was to get Greene and [shortstop] Jed [Lowrie] in the lineup at the same time and try to increase our home run power in the middle of the diamond, and unfortunately it's not going to happen." interim manager Tony DeFrancesco said. "[Jose] Altuve is going back out [at second base] and we'll see how it reacts in the next day or two."
