I have seen quite a few of both Scarlet and Summer Tanagers in Missouri. (Only a couple of Hepatic Tanagers.) Some of the males have been rather "splotchy" looking but I have not seen any yellowish-green males.

I agree with those suggesting that this is a female Summer Tanager, using coloration, body form, bill size/color and the greenish cast to the underside of the tail.
