-Good news this week for Larry Greene Jr., who was previously said to have required surgery to repair his ailing left wrist. The 21-year-old outfielder has resumed game action after spending time in a brace and is playing intrasquad games with the group that is slated to become the Gulf Coast League Phillies.
The Phillies’ top draft pick from 2011 anticipates that he could be activated for the Class A BlueClaws by July 1st. Greene’s original diagnosis was a cartilage tear.
Prior to being sidelined, the Georgia native posted a .167 average with five RBI and two steals in 15 games with Lakewood this year.
The GCL kicks off its season this coming Friday. Greene could continue action there once their season begins.
