Tigers Trade Closer Greene, OF Castellanos

Detroit Tigers traded relief pitcher Shane Greene to the Atlanta Braves pending a physical.

Nicholas Castellanos is leaving the Detroit Tigers, just as he wanted to do.

Demeritte has an OPS of.944 this season but has also struck out 106 times in 339 at-bats.

Wieck made his Major League Baseball debut last season but he really struggled at the big-league level posting a 6.57 ERA in 24 2/3 innings of work a year ago. "He was accessible by the Tigers and they sidestepped him". He is a career.274 hitter with 104 home runs, 424 RBI and a slugging percentage of.459. He was originally selected by the Cubs in the first round of the 2017 Draft out of Louisiana State University and has gone 9-21 with a 4.62 ERA (111 ER/216.1 IP) in 45 starts covering the last three seasons in the Cubs minor league system. He has 100 strike-outs in 103 innings pitched but has also walked 45. Paul Richan and Alex Lange are headed to Detroit in return, per Craig Mish of MLB Network (via Twitter).

Richan was 10-5 with a 3.97 ERA at High A Myrtle Beach this season, striking out 86 while walking just 18. With an effective cut fastball and a wipeout slider, Edwards posted a 2.98 ERA and 12.8 K/9 for the season while looking like a future back-end piece in Chicago's bullpen.

Richan, 22, was the 16th ranked prospect for the Cubs.
