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.
Sep 30 - 4:03 PM

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.
Aug 26 - 3:53 PM

Grant Green said that an MRI on his right knee showed just a "tweak."

We presume that means he has no structural damage, as Green is hoping to be back in the lineup on Wednesday. He's been filling in at second base for Johnny Giavotella (illness).
Aug 25 - 11:35 PM

Grant Green left Tuesday's game against the Tigers with right knee discomfort.

It's not clear how he was hurt, but the Angels should provide more on Green's status after the game. Green has been starting at second base with Johnny Giavotella (illness) sidelined.
Aug 25 - 8:57 PM

Grant Green left Tuesday's game against the Tigers with an undisclosed injury.

It's unclear what happened, but Green was pinch-hit for in the top of the fourth inning. The Angels are relying on Green as their regular second baseman with Johnny Giavotella (illness) sidelined, so losing him wouldn't be ideal.
Aug 25 - 8:39 PM

Angels recalled INF/OF Grant Green from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Nick Tropeano was sent down in the corresponding roster move. The Angels needed infield depth with Jonny Giavotella dealing with an illness. Green has only logged 21 at-bats in the big leagues this year, hitting .238 with two RBI. He'll start at second base and bat ninth Saturday against the Blue Jays.
Aug 22 - 6:36 PM

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

Green received just one at-bat in his most recent stay with the big club. The Angels needed to clear a roster spot for Nick Tropeano, who will start on Friday.

Angels recalled INF/OF Grant Green from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Green has five hits in just 20 at-bats for the Halos this season. He could receive the occasional start against a lefty.
Jul 17 - 4:42 PM

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

The Angels are expected to call up a pitcher after starter Garrett Richards lasted just 2/3 of an inning Saturday against the Yankees. Green has five hits in 20 at-bats for the Angels this year. The versatile 27-year-old should continue to bounce between Triple-A and the major leagues.
Jun 6 - 11:10 PM

Grant Green will start at first base Thursday against the Tigers.

Meanwhile, Albert Pujols will serve as the designated hitter and Matt Joyce will start in left field. The newly-acquired Kirk Nieuwenhuis is on the bench. This will be Green's first career start at first base, though he has made three previous appearances at the position.
May 28 - 5:53 PM

Making his first start since being called up Friday, Grant Green went 2-for-3 with two runs scored Saturday against the Rangers.

The Angels were pretty much grooming Green as an outfielder this spring, but he played second tonight. Even in Triple-A, he had played there just once this year. Second base is certainly where his bat plays best and probably the only position at which he has a chance of becoming a regular. The Angels, though, probably won't keep him up for long.
