Detroit Tigers

—After making a spectacular catch to save a home run in left field July 13, Tigers' No. 4 prospect Riley Greene Wednesday presented another sterling defensive effort, this time in right field, to rob an extra base hit.

Spencer Torkelson, the No. 1 pick in the 2020 draft, Wednesday picked up his first hit in summer camp with a line drive single to left field with two outs in the ninth inning.

BA's top 15 prospect in summer camps...

5. Riley Greene, OF, Tigers (Top 100 ranking: 52)

Lauded as one of the best pure hitters in the 2019 draft, Greene went fifth overall and continued to make a strong impression on pro scouts who saw him after he signed with the Tigers. Greene has the lefthanded swing, feel for hitting and plus raw power to have the upside of a middle-of-the-lineup bat. Getting a spot on the 60-man roster gives Greene an opportunity to get experience against Detroit's high-end pitching prospects in the upper levels.

BA chimes in as well today in its Prospect Report.

Riley Greene, OF, Tigers — Detroit's
system is more than an arm farm. Greene, the Tigers' first-rounder in
2019 out of high school in Florida, tore up the lower levels and made
it all the way to low Class A West Michigan. He ranked No. 2 in the New
York-Penn League and checked in as the No. 48 prospect in the initial
2020 Top 100. Greene has a chance to be a plus hitter with plus power
and has started his inaugural Grapefruit League campaign by going
2-for-2 with two home runs. Now that's what we'd call starting your
season with a roar.

To keep the comment with the player:

tore through the Rookie league right out of HS (.351/.442/.595), earning a promotion to short season A-ball where he handled himself well enough (.295/.380/.386) that the Tigers went ahead and pushed him to the Midwest League before his 19th birthday.

So that was tough for him (.219/.278/.344) ... but damned impressive for him to do even that well, after having a full HS season behind him (and in Florida, meaning HS ball started in late February).

Then on's piece on those who have impressed in ST so far this year, this:

7. Riley Greene, OF, Tigers: He’s 19 years old and a year removed from his last high school game. On the other hand, talent is talent, and the No. 5 overall pick in the 2019 Draft walked twice and homered in his spring debut on Sunday against the Pirates. He then followed that up with another walk and home run in his second game on Tuesday vs. the Mets, going five plate appearances without recording an out.
