The Chicago White Sox outrighted infielder Tyler Greene to Triple-A Charlotte after he cleared waivers, according to Scott Merkin of MLB.com. Greene was designated for assignment on Monday to make room for Gordon Beckham, who was activated from the disabled list.

Greene, who was signed to a minor league deal in April following his release from the Astros, hit .222 with 1 HR and 3 RBI in 22 games at second base for Chicago this season, so it makes sense that no teams were willing to use a 40-man roster spot on him. At only 29, Greene may still prove to have value in the White Sox organization in case of another infield injury.

In 288 career games over five seasons with the Cardinals (2009-2012), Astros (2012), and White Sox (2013), Greene has hit .224 with 17 HR and 61 RBI.
