    Riley Greene, Spencer Torkelson, Ryan Kriedler earn promotions to Triple-A Toledo


    Detroit — Riley Greene and Spencer Torkelson, the Tigers top two position player prospects, have been abusing Double-A pitching over the last seven days —

    Greene is hitting .524 and slugging 1.24 with a 1.80 OPS with four homers and 12 RBIs. Torkelson is hitting .429 over the same stretch, slugging .905 with a 1.33 OPS, three home runs and seven RBIs.

    But don’t even think about it. Neither is coming to the big leagues this September.

    “We can squash that dream for this season,” Tigers manager AJ Hinch said Sunday. “We want them to develop fully in the minors and they are doing a great job.”

    That’s not to say there won’t be a promotion for one or both. Late Sunday the Tigers announced they were promoting them to Triple-A Toledo, along with shortstop Ryan Kriedler.
