Grant Green (2B, SS, OAK)

Joseph Berger - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Continue Scouting

ANALYSIS: Through 81 games in the minors, Green batted .318/.374/.500 with 11 HR and 49 RBI.
He's been called up and you should definitely keep and eye on him. He has quick hands and a good line-drive stroke through the hitting zone. Don’t expect great power in the majors, but doubles should come immediately. I’d take Green over Rickie Weeks, Brian Dozier, and Marco Scutaro, and at SS I would rank him above Erick Aybar, Jimmy Rollins and the Escobars. It will be interesting to see where in the lineup the A’s will slot him, and that may make an impact on whether we recommended adding him in a few days.
