Spring training has started and one Tigers prospect is proving why he was the 5th pick in the draft last year.

According to Bless You Boys, Riley Greene has currently hit two home runs so far in the Grapefruit league tied for the league lead.

Greene has been given some at-bats this spring with the Tigers. Eventually, he will be in minor league camp but it gives fans a chance to see him as he makes his way through the Tigers system.

Last season he played with the West Michigan Whitecaps in Grand Rapids.   Fans will want to make sure to get there in the first few months of the season to see him.   He could be promoted sooner than later.  We'll see if he even heads north as the team could decide to keep him in Lakeland.

The Whitecaps will open their season on April 9th at Fifth Third Ballpark against the Lansing Lugnuts.  Check out the Whitecaps website for the season schedule and tickets.
