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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
