Former UofL and Male High School right-handed pitcher Sean Green signed a one-year, $875,000 contract with the Milwaukee Brewers Wednesday. Like most one-year deals the contract is non-guaranteed, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Green missed most of the 2010 season with a rib cage injury but was 0-0 with a 3.86 ERA in 11 games for the New York Mets. In five MLB seasons Green is 10-11 with a 4.36 ERA and 196 strikeouts in 258 innings pitched for the Mets and Seattle Mariners.
The Colorado Rockies selected Green in the 12th round of the 2000 amateur draft out of UofL. Green was traded by the Rockies to the Mariners on Dec. 20, 2004, for Aaron Taylor. The Mets acquired Green on Dec. 11, 2008, in a three-team deal that also sent J. J. Putz and Jeremy Reed to New York. Green was non-tendered by the Mets on Dec. 2, 2010. (Read more)
