Larry Greene Jr. out with wrist tear

Sidelined since last week with a left wrist issue, Larry Greene Jr. was originally listed as day-to-day by the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws after he was injured on a diving play in the outfield. Further evaluation has turned up a diagnosis of a cartilage tear for the Phillies’ top draft pick (39th overall) from 2011.

Greene, who last played on Wednesday, April 23rd, had posted a lackluster .167 average along with two doubles, a triple and five RBI in 15 games for the BlueClaws prior to being injured, this season.

The BlueClaws return home from a road trip to Lexington and Asheville next Wednesday. At that time, more examinations will take place for the six-foot 235-pounder. In the meantime, the left fielder Greene will wear a brace on the ailing wrist and remain out of action.

In other injury news, righty pitching prospect Nic Hanson spent his 22nd birthday on the operating table a couple weeks back to remove a bone spur from his throwing elbow. The Phils’ 16th round draft pick from 2012 expects to begin a throwing program in two weeks.

Hanson, who is currently on Class A Advanced Clearwater’s disabled list, sported a 2-3 record with a 3.31 ERA and a 5.77 K/9 mark in 22 outings at three levels last season.

    Regarding Larry Greene, Jr., if it were not for bad luck, Larry would have no luck at all. Poor dude.
