Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 55 | Curveball: 55 | Slider: 45 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 50 | Overall: 45

Green spent his first three seasons at Southeastern Louisiana coming out of the bullpen before sliding into the starting rotation as a senior. He took well to the new role, showing improved pitchability and control, so much so that the D-backs made Green their 14th-round pick that June before signing him for $5,000. He garnered All-Star honors as a reliever in the Pioneer League in his pro debut, posting a 1.09 ERA over 25 appearances, then opened his first full season as a member of Class A Advanced Visalia's starting rotation.

Green stands out most for his ability to execute a low- to mid-90s sinker that he used to induce groundballs at near 68-percent clip in his pro debut. That combination of velocity and heavy life makes him difficult to barrel, let alone take deep. While scouts tend to prefer his curveball to his slider, they also generally agree that the latter has room to improve. Green rounds out his four-pitch mix with a fading changeup in the mid-80s that he throws to both sides of the plate.

As a physically durable right-hander who generates a lot of weak grounders and is generally around the zone, Green has many of the components needed to stick as a starter. That he's still relatively new to starting gives him untapped potential in the role, too, and the hope is that he'll begin to miss more bats as he refines his secondary pitches.
