WSC Birth Years: Tyler Greene
Born: August 17, 1983
Drafted originally by the St. Lois Cardinals in the first round of the 2005 draft, Tyler made it to the majors in 2009. He stayed with the Cards until 2012, when he was traded to the Houston Astros in August. The White Sox signed him on April 1, 2013.
Greene made his White Sox debut on April 15, 2013. He was called up to replace Gordon Beckham at second base, after Gordon was placed on the disabled list for a broken bone in his wrist. While playing nineteen games at second, Tyler made two errors and batted .222 in fifty-seven plate appearances. Green was sent back down when Beckham returned in June. Tyler was released by the White Sox in mid-August 2013 and signed by the Atlanta Braves a few days later.
