Why New York Yankees Signed Reliever Shane Greene

Thursday featured a few blasts from the past for the Yankees.

Not only did New York add left-hander Manny Bañuelos to the big-league roster, his first opportunity to don pinstripes 10 years after he was the club’s top prospect, but they also reeled in another reliever that began his career in the Yankees organization.

New York signed right-hander Shane Greene to a Minor League deal, sending him to the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders. 

Greene, 33, has played for the Tigers, Braves and Dodgers over the last seven-plus seasons since he was traded from the Yankees to Detroit (in the Didi Gregorius deal). In his career, including a promising season with the Yankees as a rookie in 2014, Greene has a 4.50 ERA in 342 games, striking out 438 batters in 469.2 innings pitched.
