Name: Marcus Aurelius Greene
Born: Aug 19, 1994 in Moreno Valley, Calif. USA
High School: Vista Del Lago HS, Moreno Valley, Calif.

Ht.: 5'11" / Wt.: 195 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 16th round (490th overall) by the Texas Rangers in 2013
Greene was a 39th-round pick last year by the Marlins out of a New Mexico high school, but he headed to New Mexico JC and had a productive season, batting .384/.463/.727 with 10 home runs and 16 stolen bases. He has a muscular build at 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds, and thanks to his athleticism and above-average speed he plays center field when he's not catching. He moves well behind the plate, and his above-average arm strength is his best tool. He needs to improve his receiving and blocking, but that shouldn't be a problem because Greene is a hard worker with solid makeup. His swing could use some work. He has raw power potential, but has trouble staying back and rolls balls over. He recognizes breaking balls, but sometimes tries to cheat on fastballs and gets caught out front. Greene is considered signable.
