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.

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.

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

The 27-year-old was off to a fast start in the PCL, slashing .328/.333/.492 with four RBI in his first 13 contests. He'll add versatility and bench depth to the Angels roster.
Apr 24 - 6:00 PM

Angels optioned INF/OF Grant Green and INF Kyle Kubitza to Triple-A Salt Lake. Reassigned RHP Scott Snodgress and INF Marc Krauss to minor league camp.

This round of cuts brings the Angels down to 32 players still in big league camp. With Green, Kubitza and Krauss sent out, there's a high likelihood that Efren Navarro and Rule 5 selection Taylor Featherston will be on the team's Opening Day roster.
Apr 4 - 11:16 AM

Angels activated INF/OF Grant Green from the 15-day disabled list.

Green is over his back issue, but his playing time will likely be limited with Gordon Beckham now around. He's hit .313/.321/.400 for the Angels this season.

Grant Green (back) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.

Green has been sidelined since July 23 with a lumbar sprain. He could be ready to rejoin the Angels sometime next week, but with Gordon Beckham on board there might not be a role for him.

Grant Green (back) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment by the end of this week.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Monday that Grant Green (back) returning before the end of the week is "probably a long shot."

Green ran the bases recently at extended spring training and is nearing a rehab assignment. However, it sounds like he won't be activated until at least next week. The 26-year-old has been out since July 23 with a lumbar sprain.

Grant Green (back) could start a rehab assignment next week.

Green has been doing everything but taking live batting practice, something he could do in Arizona over the next few days. That would be the last hurdle before a rehab assignment. Green has been out since July 23 with a lumbar sprain.
Wed, Aug 13, 2014 07:46:00 PM

Grant Green (back) has been doing baseball activities in recent days, but there is still no date for a rehab assignment.

Green has been hitting off a tee and been taking soft toss, and he fielded ground balls for the first time on Wednesday. Green has been on the disabled list since July 23 with a lumbar sprain, and he's still at least a week or two away from returning to the Angels.

Grant Green (back) has begun hitting off a tee.
