Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 70 | Curveball: 45 | Changeup: 45 | Control: 40 | Overall: 45

Talk to any evaluator about Greene, the Blue Jays' seventh-round pick in 2013 who had a disappointing 2017 after skyrocketing up prospect lists in 2015 and 16, and they will rave about his arm strength, pure stuff and size. That's a big reason why the Cardinals were excited to get him in January in the Randal Grichuk deal.

The Cardinals are not alone in thinking that there's still a lot to work with with Greene, despite his rough season in Double-A a year ago. A pure projection pick out of high school, Greene has filled out his 6-foot-3 frame and how has a premium fastball that sits in the mid-90s with ease and touches triple digits at times. When he is throwing well, he throws downhill and with sink to elicit ground ball outs, but too often the heater has flattened out of late, leading to him being more hittable than he should be. So does his lack of consistent secondary stuff. Both his power breaking ball and his changeup will show glimpses of being average, if not better, but an inability to repeat his release point has made it tougher for him to throw them effectively and has resulted in surprisingly low strikeout rates.

Command is still a huge issue for Greene, with his 83 walks in 2017 placing him sixth in all of the Minors. The Cardinals let him start and get his innings at the start of 2018, but moved him to the bullpen when he was bumped up to Triple-A, with the hopes he'll develop into a high-octane reliever.
