Tigers' Riley Greene: Plays in intra-squad game

Greene (foot) played in an intra-squad game at the Tigers' spring training facility Friday, Lynn G. Henning of The Detroit News reports. Henning said Greene was moving "niftily" in his first at-bat, which resulted in a groundout. He will essentially be re-doing spring training as he works his way back from the fractured foot suffered April 1. Returning to official game action in a week or two seems like the best-case scenario, and from there he could be at Triple-A for a couple weeks before ascending to the majors, or he could go straight to the majors if the Tigers are impressed by how he is looking at the plate and moving in the field.

Tigers' Riley Greene: Cleared for baseball activites

Greene (foot) was cleared for baseball activates after being examined by doctors Thursday and has begun running on flat ground, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

Tigers' Riley Greene: Could be out longer than expected

Greene's recovery from a fractured right foot could last longer than his initial 6-8 week timetable, Lynn Henning of The Detroit News reports.

He's on the 7-day minor-league injured list to begin the year and will likely be held out of game action until at least June. Once he's cleared to appear in games, the 21-year-old will presumably have a lengthy rehab assignment before he returns to consideration for a major-league roster spot.
