He'll get first crack, likely blow it, leaving Farmer.

1-2-3 frame for the save. Disclaimer, its the Royals. But it was the middle of the order.

Is it safe to say that Greene's stock actually just shot to the moon given this situation? 

On a better team, their current closer leads the league in blown saves, and only other competition is Chris Martin.

SCORE for Greene owners!!!

He was getting a lot of saves with Det, so I think it really has little impact save for maybe being more likely to get saves in Sept with Atl than with Det.

Double lottery winners...first owners who snagged Greene this year when he finally isn’t garbage and then gets traded to a contender

Greene, Melancon, and Martin is a huge upgrade for the Braves. We never have to see Minter in a high leverage spot again.

Giles needs to be able to pitch to close, which is a question mark right now
