Tigers prospect Riley Greene just hit an inside-the-park home run

Greene’s Single-A debut is going well, it seems.

Outfielder Riley Greene, the Tigers’ 2019 first round pick and top position player prospect, was promoted to Single-A West Michigan on Wednesday evening. He celebrated his Whitecaps debut with an inside-the-park home run, because that’s just a normal thing for a top prospect to do.

I’m not sure about the defense here — or those uniforms, Whitecaps — but an inside-the-parker is an inside-the-parker. Greene added another hit and drove in a second run via a sacrifice fly. He also flashed the leather, making a diving catch out in center field.

Unfortunately, the Whitecaps pitching staff gave up nine runs in a 9-6 loss.
