Nationals sent INF/OF Grant Green outright to Triple-A Syracuse.

The versatile utility man was designated for assignment on Friday. He'll continue to function as organizational depth in the minors and should get another opportunity with the Nationals later in the season.
Apr 23 - 7:49 PM

Nationals designated INF/OF Grant Green for assignment.

Green was only up for a few days, going hitless in three at-bats. He should clear waivers and stick around as depth.
Apr 21 - 3:39 PM

Nationals purchased the contract of INF/OF Grant Green from Triple-A Syracuse.

Green will add depth to the Nats' bench while Trea Turner and Stephen Drew recover from hamstring strains. Green, 29, is a .251/.286/.339 career hitter at the major league level.
Apr 12 - 12:09 PM

Nationals reassigned INF/OF Grant Green, 1B Neftali Soto, LHP Braulio Lara, and C Spencer Kieboom to minor league camp.

No real surprises among this round of cuts. Green, 29, owns a weak .251/.286/.339 batting line in 350 career plate appearances at the major league level. He appeared in 18 games last season with the Giants.
Mar 20 - 10:03 AM

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.
Thu, Jul 28, 2016 06:13:00 PM

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.
Thu, Jun 30, 2016 08:00:00 PM

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.
Sun, Mar 27, 2016 08:44:00 PM

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.
Mon, Nov 30, 2015 12:51:00 PM

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.
Wed, Oct 7, 2015 02:11:00 PM

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.
