James Tyler Greene (born August 17, 1983) is an American professional baseball shortstop and second baseman in the Philadelphia Phillies organization. He has played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the St. Louis Cardinals, Houston Astros, and Chicago White Sox.

Early and personal life[edit]

Greene was born on August 17, 1983, in Raleigh, North Carolina. He graduated from St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. He was drafted by Atlanta Braves in the 2nd round of the 2002 Major League Baseball Draft, but did not sign. He then went on to attended Georgia Tech.

Greene was the 30th overall pick in the 2005 MLB draft by the Cardinals.

Professional career[edit]

St. Louis Cardinals[edit]

Greene made his major league debut on April 30, 2009 against the Washington Nationals in Washington, D.C., when Brendan Ryan was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained hamstring.[1]

He hit his first career home run May 8, 2009, against the Cincinnati Reds in the eighth inning off reliever David Weathers.[2] He was recalled on September 23 after the minor league season had ended.[3] He was rated with "Best Infield Arm" in the Cardinals minor league system by Baseball America's Best Tools survey in 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009.[4]

On September 7, 2010, Greene was recalled by the Cardinals for the stretch run.

On July 25, 2011, members of VivaElBirdos (an SBNation Blog) started the "Free Tyler Greene" Fan Club to emphasize his success at Triple A Memphis and garner support for his promotion back to St. Louis. This movement was ultimately successful, as Tyler Greene was called up on the 29th of that same month.

Houston Astros[edit]

On August 9, 2012, Greene was traded to the Houston Astros for cash consideration and a player to be named later.

On March 26, 2013, Greene was released by the Astros.

Chicago White Sox[edit]

Greene signed with the Chicago White Sox on April 4, 2013. He then reported to Triple-A and provided infield depth.[5] On April 14, 2013, Tyler was called up to the White Sox after Ángel Sánchez was placed on the DL.[6] He was designated for assignment on June 3, 2013. On June 6, 2013, Tyler cleared waivers and was sent outright to Charlotte.[7] On August 13, 2013, Greene was released.[8]

Atlanta Braves[edit]

Greene signed a minor league deal with the Atlanta Braves on August 17, 2013 and was assigned to Class AAA Gwinnett.[9]

On January 13, 2014, he was invited to spring training.[10]

San Diego Padres[edit]

Greene was acquired by the San Diego Padres on April 22, 2014.

Philadelphia Phillies[edit]

Greene signed a minor league deal with the Phillies in January 2015. The deal did not include an invite to major league spring training.
