Taylor Green back with Milwaukee Brewers

Courtenay infielder recalled by MLB club to help out at third base

A back injury to Aramis Ramirez has Taylor Green back in the bigs.

Ramirez, the starting third baseman for the Milwaukee Brewers, left their Sept. 5 game with discomfort in his back. The injury proved to be a lower back strain.

On Sept. 6 the Brew Crew recalled Green, whose season with Triple A Nashville Sounds was already over. According to Yahoo! Sports, Green left his Comox home at 6 a.m. Friday, Sept. 7 and arrived in St. Louis just in time for that night’s game against the Cardinals.

Green was playing the hot corner and went 1-for-6 with an RBI as the Brewers beat the Cards 5-4 in 13 innings. He went 0-for-1 in a pinch-hitting role on Sept. 8 as Milwaukee won 6-3. Ramiriez was back in the lineup at third base on Sunday and went 0-4 in a 5-4 loss to St. Louis. Green went 0-1 in a pinch-hit appearance.

In 81 at-bats with the Brewers earlier in the season, Green batted .198 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 45 games including 19 starts. He was optioned to Nashville on July 8. In 77 games at Nashville this year he batted .273 with seven homers and 29 RBI.

 

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel notes the Brewers originally passed on making the 25-year-old Green a September call-up because they didn’t think he’d play enough to warrant it. But they have no real coverage at third base while Ramirez rests his sore back because Cody Ransom was claimed off waivers by Arizona last week.
