On the last day that I was out in Goodyear for Cincinnati Reds spring training, top pitching prospect Hunter Greene was throwing to hitters on a field as the other teams were playing live games. Greene, who was shut down late last July with a torn UCL in his pitching elbow, opted for rehab rather than Tommy John surgery and is still working his way back as a part of that rehab process.
Hunter Greene is not being held back in terms of throwing at 100% effort. He, however, is still working his way back from an injury and isn’t going to be ready to begin the season with a club – as was reported last week. The video isn’t great – you can’t see the catcher or the strikezone because of the cage. But it seemed appropriate to record the video from this angle than to go to the side angle.
