Dodgers, Tigers Discuss Shane Greene Trade

According to Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press, the Dodgers have ‘inquired’ on Shane Greene as they continue to lead a search party for bullpen help.

The Dodgers already had reported interest in Shane Greene around last year’s trade deadline:

In 2018, Shane Greene did not pitch well, putting together a 5.12 ERA, albeit with a decent 3.94 DRA. He picked up 32 saves. 2019 has been a different story for Greene as he has posted a 1.09 ERA and 3.42 DRA through 33 innings of work. He already has 22 saves as we head into the All-Star Break.

Greene figures to step in as the top-tier setup man to Jansen that was missing in the 2018 playoffs and more importantly, the 2018 World Series.

It would also not be surprising to see the Dodgers jump in the mix for the Tigers’ ‘closer of the future’ right-hander Joe Jimenez or another right-handed bat that they have been linked to over the last calendar year in Nick Castellanos.
