Todd Greene is in his ninth season with the Arizona Diamondbacks and his second season as a Special Assignment Scout. Greene's focus is in scouting Major League players and to serve as an advisor on player trades, acquisitions and roster moves.
Now in his 26th year of professional baseball, Greene began his career after being drafted as an outfielder in the 12th round by the California Angels in 1993 before being converted to catcher. In 1993 Greene won the MVP of the Northwest league as a member of the Boise Hawks. 1994 ended in similar fashion as Greene won the MVP of the California league and leading all minor leaguers with RBI(124!) Not to be out done, the 1995 season ended with Greene leading all of the minor leagues with 40 Home runs and being named Baseball Weekly Minor League Player of the Year! During his Major League career, Greene spent time with eight different organizations and played 12 seasons in the Majors with the Angels (1995-99), Blue Jays (2000), Yankees (2001), Rangers (2002-03), Rockies (2004-05) and Giants (2006). Greene made 255 career starts behind the plate, including a career-high 49 with the Rangers in 2003. He saw his most extensive action with the Angels in 1999 when he made 84 starts and set career-highs in doubles (20), home runs (14) and RBI (42).
He caught the ceremonial first pitch from President George W. Bush prior to Game 3 of the 2001 World Series. After finishing his playing career with the San Diego Padres' organization in 2007, Greene transitioned to the club's scouting department where he became a professional scout.
In January 2009, Greene joined the Tampa Bay Rays' organization as a Quality Assurance Coach where he served as a uniformed coordinator throughout Spring Training and all pre-game practices. Greene's primary responsibilities included assisting with catching instruction and serving as a liaison between the scouting department and the club, including advance series preparations. In November 2009, Greene was added to the Seattle Mariners' scouting department as a professional scout for the 2010 season.
During his collegiate career at Georgia Southern, Greene was a four-time All-American where he set school records for hits (311), home runs (88), RBI (257), total bases (640) and slugging percentage (.709). His home run total ranks third all-time in the NCAA and he became the first player in school history to have his uniform number (20) retired. Greene is a graduate of Evans (Ga.) High School where his baseball teams won back to back state championships in 1988 and 1989. He graduated with his team having a 52 game winning streak. His number (10) is also retired.
