Tigers reportedly have very high asking price for closer Shane Greene

Detroit Tigers

Any team that wants to acquire Detroit Tigers closer Shane Greene is going to have to pay up.

According to Jason Beck of, the Washington Nationals have interest in Greene, but the Tigers asked them for top prospect Carter Kieboom in return.

That’s a very high asking price for Greene, who is having an excellent season but lacks a long track record of high-level success in any role. It’s still understandable, though. Greene is under contract for another season and the Tigers don’t absolutely have to move him this July. The Tigers need talent and this is their chance to aim high for it. They’re doing the same with pitcher Matthew Boyd, who has even more team control left.

Greene has saved 22 games for the Tigers, posting a 1.03 ERA in the process. He’s very much expendable, as there are few things less useful to a non-contending team than a top closer.
