  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Faces live pitching

    Greene (elbow) took live batting practice Tuesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    It's the first time he's faced live pitching since he underwent Tommy John surgery on his right (non-throwing) elbow in September. Greene noted that he "didn't even think about my arm" during the session, adding that he's felt "normal" for a while now. While the Tigers are likely to ease Greene into Grapefruit League action, he's fully expected to be ready to roll come Opening Day.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Set to face live pitching

    Greene (elbow) is scheduled to face live pitching this week, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Greene may not be included in Detroit's initial lineups when the team kicks off Grapefruit League play Saturday, but he doesn't appear to be far behind the team's other healthy hitters as he works his way back from the Tommy John surgery he had on his right (non-throwing) elbow in September. He's performing all other baseball activities, so he should be cleared to play in games as soon as the Tigers are confident that he's swinging the bat at full speed without discomfort.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Expects to play Grapefruit opener

    Greene (elbow) expects to be ready to play at the beginning of the Tigers' Grapefruit League schedule, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

    The Tigers' plan for the outfielder is to mix him in at both designated hitter and the outfield in the early going this spring. Greene is just five months removed from Tommy John surgery, but because it was on his right (non-throwing) elbow, he's on an accelerated timeline which will have him ready to roll for Opening Day.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Swing feels good

    Greene (elbow) said Monday that his post-Tommy John surgery swing "really feels normal now," Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Greene is just shy of five months removed from Tommy John surgery on his right (non-throwing) elbow and has been swinging a bat for around a month. The young outfielder might be eased into action this spring, but his availability for Opening Day doesn't appear to be at all in question.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Working out at spring complex

    Greene (elbow) has been hitting, playing catch and going through some defensive drills at the Tigers' spring training complex in Florida, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Greene is not even four months removed from Tommy John surgery, but because the operation was on his right (non-throwing) elbow, he's facing a much shorter rehab window. It's possible Greene will face some restrictions during spring training, but the expectation is that he will be ready to go by Opening Day.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Expected to be ready for next year

    Greene is expected to be ready for the start of next season after he underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday on his right (non-throwing) elbow, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    Greene needing Tommy John surgery to repair his injured elbow was a worst-case scenario. However, because he's a position player and the operation was on his non-throwing arm, his rehab timeline won't come close to the typical 12-to-18 months for pitcher. It's possible, if not probable, that the Tigers will ease him into things in spring training, but all signs point to Greene being ready to roll come Opening Day. The young outfielder batted .288/.349/.447 with 11 homers across 416 plate appearances in 2023.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Moves to 60-day IL

    The Tigers transferred Greene (elbow) to the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

    After undergoing season-ending Tommy John surgery Wednesday, per Chris McCosky of The Detroit News, Greene's move to the 60-day IL is simply procedural. Brenan Hanifee was selected from Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday to fill Greene's spot on the 40-man roster.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Undergoing surgery Wednesday

    Greene will undergo surgery on his right elbow Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    The details of the procedure have yet to be revealed, but more will likely be known Wednesday after Greene's surgery. The 22-year-old outfielder has been out since Sept. 2 with an inflamed right elbow, and he'll now almost certainly miss the rest of the season. Greene finishes with a .288/.349/.447 slash line with 11 homers and 37 RBI across 416 plate appearances.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Wanting additional opinions

    Greene said Wednesday he's seeking additional medical opinions on his inflamed right elbow, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    It's unclear what the initial MRI revealed following his move to the 10-day injured list Sept. 2, but Greene apparently wants some more information before determining the next steps of his recovery program. The 22-year-old remains without a timeline for his return but may have already played his last game of 2023 given the Tigers are out of playoff contention and have no need to rush him back into action.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Still being evaluated

    Greene (elbow) is still going through medical evaluation while completing daily rehab, the team announced Tuesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    It seems like the decision of whether Greene can return this season still hangs in the balance. He has been getting tests done and seeing doctors, with an announcement from the team expected this week.

  • Tigers' Riley Greene: Lands on injured list

    The Tigers placed Greene on the 10-day injured list Saturday with right elbow inflammation, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    After making a diving catch in Friday's win over the White Sox, Greene's elbow became swollen and sore overnight. He'll be shut down for now and undergo an MRI in about a week, at which point a clearer return timeline should emerge. Tyler Nevin was recalled from Triple-A Toledo in a corresponding move.

    Greene went 3-for-4 with a triple. a two-run home run, two runs scored and four total RBI in Wednesday's 8-7 win over the Twins.
