Astros acquire Tyler Greene from Cardinals. SS/2B/3B, lifetime .218/.295/.329 hitter. PTBNL or cash to St. Louis.— Zachary Levine (@zacharylevine) August 9, 2012
Greene was selected by the Cardinals in the first round, thirtieth overall, of the 2005 MLB Draft. Over 179 at-bats for St. Louis this season, he’s hit .218/.272/.358 with nine doubles, two triples, four home runs and nine stolen bases in eleven attempts. The 28-year-old owns a line of .218/.295/.329 over his four-year major league career.
Greene has manned every position but catcher and pitcher for the Cardinals over his four seasons, making a majority of his appearances at second base and shortstop.
