Greene to have surgery, will miss two months

Following up with more exclusive details on news that was broken here last week, outfield prospect Larry Greene Jr. is expected to miss two months, as he is slated to undergo surgery to repair his injured left wrist.

Greene, who initially injured the wrist on a diving play in the outfield, is scheduled go under the knife on Thursday, May 15th.  The surgery to repair torn cartilage for the 21-year-old will be conducted by Dr. Randall Culp in King of Prussia, PA.

The Phillies’ supplementary round draft selection (39th overall) from 2011 was batting .167 with two doubles, one triple and five RBI in 15 games this season.

Since turning pro, the once highly touted slugger has tallied a .231/.326/.326 slash line in 196 games.

    Sometime down the line after the Phillies give up on him, the Braves or Cardinals will change his plate approach and turn him into a 30+ home run guy. This organization sucks top to bottom, an absolute laughing stock. Meanwhile good luck to Larry.

      Disagree. He’s a football player not a baseball player. Pack it in already and cut your losses. He sucks.

    Audible and ebook libraries and bookstores are both dedicated to their customers by providing the largest selection of audible books that are downloadable online or purchased in local stores. Tongue-in-cheek!) People who read books look smart (though may not necessarily be smart) – this can be an interesting trait to show cd rpp smk others to create a positive image, unless, if you don’t value having a “smart look,” which you may think to be “nerdy” more than anything else.
