Drafted in the 3rd round (99th overall) by the Detroit Tigers in 2008 (signed for $373,000)
Green missed all of 2006 after Tommy John surgery and worked just 18 innings as a redshirt sophomore in 2007, but he positioned himself as a top prospect for 2008 with his performance in the Cape Cod League. The Red Sox, who drafted him in the 15th round, offered him $800,000 at the end of the summer, but Green turned them down in hopes of pitching his way into the first round this spring. That didn't happen because he was so inconsistent that he lost his spot in Kentucky's rotation. While his stuff was expected to take a step forward, Green looked stiff and sat mostly at 87-88 mph as a starter. The sink and armside run on his fastball were more impressive than his velocity. Once he moved to the bullpen, he reached the mid-90s at times, but he did so with a higher arm slot and more effort in his delivery. Green has flashed a good slider at times, but for the most part it has just been a decent pitch. While he has thrown strikes and missed bats, his command has been erratic and made him hittable at times. He still figures to go on the first day of the draft based on his size (6-foot-8, 240 pounds) and the potential he showed on the Cape, but his bonus won't be as high as it could have been last summer.
