Greene to thirdPosted by Paul Singman at 6:39pm
While nothing in Khalil Greene's first season as a Cardinal has gone right so far—having lost his starting job, getting DL'ed for a social anxiety disorder—there is now a glimmer of hope for the 29 year old shortstop's season as the Cardinals are going to send him back down to the minors to learn third base, the position he played in college (h/t Rob Neyer).
Greene most likely was not going to be able to win back the starting shortstop job from Brendan Ryan, but as long as the Cards do not go out and acquire a new third baseman, Khalil has a decent shot of winning playing time at third over the disappointing Joe Thurston and coincidental last name sharer Tyler Greene.
In NL-Only leagues Greene is worth keeping an eye on when he returns to the majors as he could begin playing like his 2007 self, when he blasted 27 home runs.
Paul has been managing fantasy baseball teams for many seasons and writing for THT Fantasy over the past three years. He is currently a student at UPenn welcomes readers' thoughts at his email here or in the comments below.

Greene played SS at Clemson his Junior and Senior Year. Someone made this point in the comments on Rob Neyer’s article, but I thought I would point it out here. I went to school there at the same time and watched many games.
