Grayson Greiner had a great start to his professional baseball career. After three stellar years at USC, the catcher was drafted in the third round of the MLB Draft in June by the Detroit Tigers. He was assigned to the Single A West Michigan Whitecaps. In 26 games, he hit .322 with two home runs and 16 RBI’s.
His season ended on Thursday, when he underwent surgery to repair a broken hamate bone in his left hand. The injury occurred when he was hit by a pitch last week.
Greiner will head down to Lakeland, Florida to the Tigers spring training complex to begin rehab. He is fully expected to return and be ready for spring training in February.
