    Concussion to keep Tigers’ prospect Riley Greene out of Arizona Fall League


    Plans to further groom Tigers star prospect Riley Greene for big-league duty in 2022 ran into a potential hitch when a concussion scratched Greene from the 2021 Arizona Fall League roster.

    The concussion occurred during a collision in Greene’s final game, Oct. 2, against St. Paul, at Fifth Third Field in Toledo.

    Greene, 21, is the Tigers’ top farm prospect and a center fielder who had a dazzling year at Double A Erie and during a late-summer stretch at Triple A Toledo. He batted a combined .301 at both stops, with 24 home runs, and a .921 OPS.

    He was named last week by the Tigers as their 2021 Minor League Position Player of the Year.

    Greene was supposed to begin play this week with the AFL’s Salt River Rafters, which also is home this autumn to Tigers hitting prospects Spencer Torkelson and Ryan Kreidler. A pair of Tigers pitching prodigies, Zack Hess and Garrett Hill, also will be playing for Salt River.
