Tigers trade Greene, Castellanos for minor leaguers

Detroit Tigers traded relief pitcher Shane Greene to the Atlanta Braves pending a physical.

The Cubs needed Nicholas Castellanos to change an offense headed toward definition-of-insanity territory and create some positive vibes within the clubhouse.

The Tigers have traded Nick Castellanos to the Cubs.

Richan, 22, was the 16th ranked prospect for the Cubs. He'll be a free agent after the season, so this is a solid rental.

In return, the Tigers will receive pitchers Alex Lange and Paul Richan, according to Craig Mish.

United States 'has intelligence Hamza bin Laden is dead'
US intelligence played a role in the operation that killed the younger bin Laden, the source said, declining to elaborate. He was described on Twitter as "an emerging al Qaeda leader" that had been threatening the USA and its respective allies.

According to Patrick Mooney of The Athletic, the Tigers gave cash considerations to the Cubs as part of the trade as well to try and lessen the damage of Castellanos' salary.

A few weeks ago, the Cubs said goodbye to the man who got the final out in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, giving the franchise their first World Series title in 108 years.

Lange was a first-round pick back in 2017 out of LSU and struggled at high A this year before being promoted to Double AA Tennessee and pitching much better.

Lange, 23, has combined to go 3-12 with a 5.82 ERA (56 ER/86.2 IP) in 18 starts this season between Single-A Myrtle Beach and Double-A Tennessee. "He was accessible by the Tigers and they sidestepped him". Now that the deadline has passed and Detroit has acquired more pieces for the future, it's time to see how the late-season call-ups do to round out the year.
