Tigers land starting pitcher Greene in 3-team trade

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -  The Arizona Diamondbacks have sent slick-fielding, light-hitting shortstop Didi Gregorius to the New York Yankees in a three-team deal that included Detroit.
   The Tigers acquired right-handed pitcher Shane Green from the Yankees and sent left-handed pitcher Robbie Ray and teenage infielder Domingo Leyba to Arizona.
   The Diamondbacks had a crowd at shortstop and chose to stick with youngsters Chris Owings and Nick Ahmed.
   The 24-year-old Gregorius hit .241 with 25 doubles, eight triples, 13 homers and 55 RBIs in 183 games over parts of two seasons with Arizona.
   Greene was 5-4 with a 3.71 ERA in 15 games, 14 of them starts, over four stints with the Yankees last season.
