White Sox's Grant Green: Signed by White Sox
Green was signed by the White Sox and assigned to Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Green was released by the Nationals last week after appearing in 40 games with Triple-A Syracuse this season, where he slashed .246/.319/.285, but failed to make much of an impact on his overall stock. Over 129 career games with the A's, Angels, Giants and Nationals, the 29-year-old has compiled a .246 average and 38 RBI while mainly being used as a reserve infielder. He'll serve as organizational depth for a White Sox team already dealing with injuries to Tyler Saladino and Leury Garcia, but remains a longshot to see much, if any, major-league playing time....

Nationals' Grant Green: Outrighted to Triple-A
Green was outrighted to Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.
The Nats designated Green for assignment earlier in the week but Green will remain in the Washington system, having passed through waivers unclaimed. A first-round pick in 2009, Green is merely an organizational depth piece. He has totaled 353 plate appearances in parts of five seasons at the major-league level (97 plate appearances since the start of the 2015 season).... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Grant Green: Designated for assignment
Green was designated for assignment Friday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.
With Trea Turner (hamstring) returning from the disabled list, Green was the obvious casualty. The 29-year-old received barely any playing time during his short stint with the Nationals, going 0-for-3 in his only start Thursday. Green likely returns to Triple-A Syracuse if he clears waivers, where he should see regular playing time and further chances to hone his skill set.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Grant Green: Called up by Nationals
Green had his contract purchased by the Nationals on Wednesday and will join the team immediately, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
Green is the beneficiary from the Nats' sudden void at shortstop, as Trea Turner and Stephen Drew are both sidelined by hamstring injuries. He is off to a rough start this season, batting .162 over 20 spring games and .154 over four games with Triple-A Syracuse, but provides major league experience at the position. Nonetheless, he needs to find some rhythm at the plate if he wants to remain with the team long-term.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Grant Green: Agrees to minor league deal with Nationals
Green agreed to a minor league deal with the Nationals on Friday that includes an invitation to spring training, the Washington Post's Chelsea Janes reports.
Green does not figure to break camp with the big league club, as he is behind Stephen Drew and Wilmer Difo on the organizational depth chart, among the club's backup middle infield options. He has a career .251/.286/.339 slash line with four home runs in 350 career MLB plate appearances, and most recently washed out of the Giants organization.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Grant Green: Clears waivers, outrighted to Triple-A
Green has cleared waivers and has been outrighted to Triple-A Sacramento.
Green was designated for assignment by the Giants last Thursday as they activated second baseman Joe Panik from the disabled list. The 28-year-old will head back to Triple-A where he owns a .294/.321/.437 line with six home runs and 33 RBI in 238 at-bats.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Grant Green: Designated for assignment
Green was designated for assignment Thursday.
With Joe Panik being activated from the DL Thursday, Green was DFA'd in order to make room on the 40-man roster. Green posted a .261/.300/.370 slash line in 18 games since his recall from Triple-A Sacramento on June 30 and will likely head back there unless he gets picked up by another big league club during his waiver period....

Giants' Grant Green: In Wednesday's lineup
Green is in the lineup Wednesday against the Reds, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
With Ramiro Pena being scratched from the lineup, Green will be at second base in the Giants' series finale against Cincinnati. Green is 10-for-39 with a home run in the month of July.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Grant Green: Out of Sunday's lineup
Green is out of the lineup Sunday as the Giants take on the Diamondbacks.
Green had been putting up solid numbers for the Giants, having gone 9-for-30 across eight games. However, he'll be replaced by Ramiro Pena at second base for Sunday's contest. With Joe Panik (concussion) expected to return shortly after the All-Star break, Green will likely make much fewer appearances in the lineup in the coming weeks.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Grant Green: Continues to excel in everyday role
Green went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks.
Green has been seeing regular playing time at second with Joe Panik (concussion) sidelined and has been taking advantage of it with a .300/.344/.433 slash line in 32 plate appearances. While it is a small sample size, he was slashing .294/.321/.437 with Triple-A Sacramento this season, so the former first-round draft pick may have finally "figured it out" at age 28.... See More ...

Giants' Grant Green: Collects two hits in debut Thursday
Green made his first start with the Giants after being called up prior to Thursday's game. He went 2-for-5 with a double in the 12-6 win over Oakland.
With Joe Panik (concussion) on the disabled list and Ramiro Pena (ankle) going down Wednesday, Green could be in line for regular playing time at the keystone this week. While he is no longer the prospect he was during his time in Oakland and Los Angeles, he has produced with Triple-A Sacramento this season, batting .294 with six homers and 33 RBI in 250 plate appearances....

Giants' Grant Green: Called up by Giants, starting at second base Thursday
Green was recalled Thursday and will start at second base against the A's, Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The Giants optioned reliever Chris Stratton in a corresponding move to add Green to the active roster Thursday. Green only managed to slash .190/.227/.262 at the big league level last season, but he's put together a respectable .294/.321/.437 slash line at Triple-A Sacramento this season. He'll bat seventh in the order Thursday against Dillon Overton.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Grant Green: Unproductive bat to start year
Green went 0-for-4 in Sunday's loss to Triple-A Salt Lake.
Having spent 2015 splitting time between the Angels and Salt Lake, Green has been off to a fairly underwhelming start with his new club. Thus far, he has hit .263 in 10 games and has accrued an on-base percentage of .282. It's expected that the Giants will be patient with his development in Triple-A Sacramento before bringing him up, as he's coming off a subpar 21 game MLB campaign in which he hit below .200. Not to mention that the Giants have 2015 All-Star Joe Panik starting at second base.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Grant Green: Signs with Giants
Green signed a minor league deal with the Giants on Monday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.
Green cleared waivers in October, so there didn't seem to be much interest out there for the 28-year-old, but the Giants were apparently intrigued enough to extend an offer. He posted a .306/.337/.449 slash line at Triple-A last season, but struggled in the majors to the tune of a .190 average in 42 at bats, so he'll likely begin the year in the minors.... See More ...
