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

Green has batted .324/.333/.419 in the majors this season but played sparingly during his last stint. It's unlikely that he'll come into much playing time this time around.
Jul 13 - 12:38 PM

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

Green played sparingly had and had just one hit in 10 at-bats in his recent stint with the big club. The Halos have added Cam Bedrosian to the bullpen to take his place on the roster.
Jul 8 - 6:25 PM

Grant Green is making his first major league start at third base on Wednesday night.

The Angels are probably hoping Green can become a regular option at the hot corner with David Freese batting just .226/.305/.282 across 55 games this season. Green, meanwhile, has hit .333/.347/.435 in 25 games. The 26-year-old former first-round pick is worth a speculative add in AL-only and deeper mixed fantasy leagues.

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

Green was sent down earlier this month even though he hit .359/.373/.469 over 22 games. He's not necessarily guaranteed a ton of playing time but can easily slide into a variety of roles and is worth owning in deeper leagues.
Jun 20 - 5:32 PM

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

Green was the odd man out, at least in the eyes of the organization, when the team needed a seventh reliever. The 26-year-old didn't do much to deserve the demotion, batting .359/.373/.469 with the big club. The Angels recalled Cory Rasmus to take Green's spot on the roster.
Jun 7 - 5:31 PM

Grant Green went 3-for-4 on Sunday, lifting his average to .368.

Green, who hit his first homer last night, is now 14-for-38 since his callup on May 2. He's started against lefties since day one of his callup, but he needs to play against righties too while he's hitting like this.
May 18 - 7:09 PM

Grant Green hit his first homer of the year Saturday in the win over the Rays.

It was a two-run shot off Cesar Ramos. Green was mostly playing against lefties a week ago, but it seems his performance is earning him some time versus righties now. As it should: the Angels need to find out whether he's someone who can contribute after Josh Hamilton and Kole Calhoun return. Green has picked up at least one hit in eight of his nine starts and is batting .324 in 34 at-bats.
May 18 - 12:42 AM

Grant Green went 2-for-3 with a walk on Monday before being removed in favor of pinch-hitter Raul Ibanez.

Mike Scioscia obviously isn't impressed with Green, .350 average or no. The 26-year-old isn't playing against righties, and even against a lefty tonight, he was down in the ninth spot. And then, despite going 2-for-3, he was removed in favor of a guy hitting .139. Green would seem to be the Angels' best everyday option at third with David Freese and Ian Stewart out, but since he's in the platoon role right now, his fantasy value is very limited.
May 12 - 10:17 PM

Grant Green (finger) went 1-for-3 with a walk in his return to the Angels' lineup Wednesday.

Green had to be scratched from Tuesday's lineup with a jammed finger on his left hand. It was never a major issue. The versatile 26-year-old is 4-for-13 (.308) since his promotion to the major leagues on May 2 and should continue to get semi-regular playing time.
May 8 - 8:42 AM

Grant Green (finger) is back in the Angels' starting lineup Wednesday night against the Yankees.

Green was a late scratch Tuesday due to a jammed finger on his left hand. The 26-year-old is 3-for-10 (.300) since his May 2 promotion from Triple-A Salt Lake.
May 7 - 5:35 PM

Grant Green was a late scratch from Tuesday's lineup due to a jammed finger on his left hand.

He'll be re-evaluated on Wednesday, but the Angels are considering him day-to-day. Green had been slated to receive his third start in the last four games in left field.
May 7 - 1:23 AM

Grant Green is making his second start in the last three games in left field on Monday.

He's started two of four games since being called up and appeared in all four. Green should also see some playing time at third base against left-handers. The 26-year-old has a potent bat and is worth carrying in deeper fantasy leagues.
May 5 - 6:35 PM

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

The 26-year-old infielder was tearing the cover off the ball on the farm, slashing .365/.412/.519 with three homers and three stolen bases in his first 25 games. He's expected to see time in left field with the Angels.
May 2 - 7:03 PM

Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports that the Angels will call up Grant Green before Friday's game.

Green, 26, was hitting .365/.412/.529 with 11 extra-base hits (three home runs) and three stolen bases over his first 25 games with Triple-A Salt Lake this year. He has been playing left field for the past week, so it looks like that's how the Angels will use him initially. However, he could be an option at third base once Josh Hamilton (thumb) returns. He's a solid pickup in AL-only fantasy leagues.
