Two weeks ago the Angels demoted Grant Green to Triple-A despite his .359 batting average in 22 games, but now he’s back in the majors.
However, it’s not clear where his playing time will come or how much he’ll receive, because manager Mike Scioscia is already choosing to use 42-year-old Raul Ibanez far too often over rookie C.J. Cron and with Josh Hamilton healthy there’s less need to use Green in the outfield.
Green was the A’s first-round draft pick in 2009 and was traded to the Angels for Alberto Callaspo in the middle of last season. He’s primarily a middle infielder, but shifted to the outfield recently to increase his versatility and has always shown a solid bat in the minors.
