Report: Tigers Deal Closer Greene To Braves
ESPN's Buster Olney is reporting that the Detroit Tigers have sent All-Star closer Shane Greene (pictured) to the Atlanta Braves pending medical information being exchanged. It is unclear as to what the Tigers received from the National League Eastern Division leaders at this time.
Greene has 22 saves for the Tigers this season in 38 appearances with the team. He's also 0-2 on the year with a 1.18 earned run average.
Shane came to Detroit after the 2014 season in a trade with the New York Yankees, where he was a starting pitcher.
