"It was awesome, in front of 27,000 people and on national TV," Green said of Louisville's time in Omaha. "I couldn't really find the strike zone, but it was an awesome experience."
The focus is now on his professional career as a member of the Tigers' organization.
For now, he's a member of the team in Lakeland, but could also pitch for the Connecticut Tigers, another short-season rookie league. The idea is to get him acclimated to the professional lifestyle and expectations while working with a limited time on the mound.
"They've just told me I'm on an innings limit for the year, whether I do that here or somewhere else," Green said.
He hadn't thrown for the Tigers as of the time of the interview, but made his debut Wednesday against the GCL Pirates. Green took the hill in the sixth inning against the Pirates. He struck out two in the inning of work, but also allowed a solo home run in his first professional inning.
With his first outing out of the way, it'll be business as usual for Green. The innings cap wll play a part in how often and in what kind of situations Green pitches, but it'll be the start of his career in the bigs.
"I threw a lot of innings," Green said. "There's not really a rush to get me throwing. It should be fun, I'm looking forward to it."
