Tyler Greene and the Draft

One draft projection of Greene #13 with the Orioles:

13. Orioles – Tyler Greene, SS, R/R, 6’2, 190, Georgia Tech

Greene’s combination of tools and performance are consistent with a Top Five selection in the draft, but he suffers for Boras-itis. Greene tore up the Cape Cod League and has shown flashes of big league ability at shortstop, with excellent range and a strong arm. His weakness so far is that he hasn’t been able to show both sides of his game at the same time. Eventually, he will.
