Taylor Green re-signs with Milwaukee Brewers

Comox Valley ball player was set to become free agent before inking deal with MLB squad

Comox Valley ball player Taylor Green has re-signed with the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Brewers decided to resign Green just before he became a free agent and became available to all other Major League Baseball teams.  Green has been with the Brewers for nearly 10 years and is the only player in history to win the Milwaukee Brewers’ Minor League Player of the Year Award twice (2007 and 2011).

After racking up a tremendous 2011 season in the Pacific Coast AAA League, Green earned all-star honours  along with MLB standouts, Bryce Harper, Paul Goldschmidt and Jose Altuve.

Green played with the Brewers in the 2011 National League playoffs, defeating  the Arizona Diamondbacks before losing to the eventual  World Champion St. Louis Cardinals.  Green missed the 2013 year after season ending hip surgery and played with AAA Nashville Sounds for much of last year.

 

Green is looking forward to a great rebound season this year and is very happy to be back with the Brewers. To date, only 40 of 600 free agents have been signed by MLB teams.
