Nationals signed INF/OF Grant Green to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Green, 29, received 50 plate appearances with the Giants last season but spent the bulk of the year at Triple-A, where he batted .319/.336/.454. Hitting in the minors has never been an issue for the former first-round pick, but he's a career .251/.286/.339 batter over 350 career plate appearances in the majors and has been unable to find a defensive home.
Jan 27 - 1:25 PM

Grant Green has elected free agency.

Green saw some brief time in the majors with the Giants this season and batted .319/.336/.454 with seven homers at Triple-A Sacramento. Of course, hitting in the minors has never been an issue for him. He'll look for another minor league contract this winter.

Giants sent INF Grant Green outright to Triple-A Sacramento.

Green was designated for assignment by the Giants at the end of July and passed through waivers unclaimed. The former first-round pick owns a .251/.286/.339 career batting line in the major leagues.

Giants designated INF Grant Green for assignment.

Green spent about a month in San Francisco, hitting .261 with one homer and seven RBI while filling in for Joe Panik at second base. The 28-year-old will head to Triple-A Sacramento if he clears waivers.

Grant Green hit a two-run home run, his first of the season, to lead the Giants to a 4-2 victory over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Green, the well-traveled former prospect, picked a good time for his first dinger, lifting a two-run shot off Robbie Ray in the fourth inning to give the Giants the lead. Since being called up on June 30, the 28-year-old is hitting .300/.344/.433 with five RBI and five runs scored in 30 at-bats. He'll continue to find playing time while Joe Panik is sidelined but isn't worth any fantasy consideration.

Giants purchased the contract of INF Grant Green from Triple-A Sacramento.

The Giants made room for Green by sending Chris Stratton down to Triple-A. The 28-year-old has had a solid year in the minors, hitting .294 with 33 RBI in 65 appearances for Sacramento. He missed time with a laceration earlier this month but is now back at full strength. Green will draw the start at second base and bat seventh Thursday against A's left-hander Dillon Overton.

Giants re-assigned INFs Grant Green, Ramiro Pena and Conor Gillaspie, LHP Braulio Lara, OF Gorkys Hernandez and C George Kottaras to minor league camp.

Nothing terribly surprising here, though Green has always been an intriguing talent and would have made a nice bench option with his versatility. All will provide organizational depth at Triple-A for the Giants.

Giants signed INF/OF Grant Green to a minor league contract.

Green batted just .190/.227/.262 in 44 plate appearances this past season for the Angels and he is a .249/.283/.335 career hitter at the major league level. The 28-year-old utilityman probably isn't going to see much action -- if any at all -- in San Francisco.

Angels sent INF/OF Grant Green outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Green cleared waivers after being designated for assignment last week. The 28-year-old owns a .249/.283/.335 batting line in the majors and will serve as organizational depth.

Angels designated INF/OF Grant Green for assignment.

Green has always hit in the minors but didn't have a position, and the Angels didn't want to wait any more for the bat to come around after a .249/.283/.335 start to his career. He just turned 28 this week but could draw some interest on waivers.

Grant Green (Achilles) has been cleared to play.

Green went to the Angels' spring training facility to rehab a minor Achilles injury for a few days, but he's ready to go now. He could see some playing time at second base with Johnny Giavotella still sidelined.

Grant Green has been away from the Angels while rehabbing an Achilles injury.

Green suffered the injury last week during a pregame workout. He could rejoin the club as soon as this weekend in Minnesota. Green is hitting just .190/.227/.262 over 21 games with the big club this season.

Grant Green (knee) is back in the Angels' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Tigers.

Green sat out Wednesday after tweaking his right knee on Tuesday night, but it was obviously nothing major. He'll start at second base and bat ninth in Detroit. Green is filling in as a starter for the Halos with Johnny Giavotella (illness) sidelined indefinitely.

Grant Green (knee) is not in the Angels' lineup Wednesday.

Green is sitting out after tweaking his right knee Tuesday. He's considered day-to-day. Ryan Jackson is handling second base in his place.
