Greene, Melancon speak about joining the Braves

The Braves picked up Shane Greene from the Detroit Tigers and Mark Melancon from the San Francisco Giants.

Here’s what the players said about joining the Braves.

Greene: “They’re excited, I’m excited. I’m starting a new chapter and going to a contender.” Hear more of his thoughts in a Fox Sports Detroit video below.

Melancon (who waived a no-trade clause to join the Braves after his wife gave the green light): “She’s running the show here. After we talked and realized it’s Atlanta, a really good situation over there, we decided it’s OK. It’s a winning team. They got a lot of young talent, a lot of upside there.”
