Taylor Green to miss 2013 MLB season

Milwaukee Brewers infielder has arthroscopic surgery on left hip

TAYLOR GREEN UNDERWAY arthroscopic surgery on his left hip this week and will miss the 2013 MLB season.

 

 

 

Taylor Green’s 2013 Major League Baseball season was over before it even began.

The Milwaukee Brewers’ infielder underwent surgery on his ailing left hip this week. The arthroscopic surgery was to be performed by team physician William Raasch in Milwaukee.

Green was in Milwaukee last Thursday to be examined by Raash after suffering a setback with the hip in extended spring training in Phoenix.

When the Brewers broke spring training camp, Green was left behind in Phoenix to continue physical rehab on the injury that occurred with a couple of weeks left in spring training. Green aggravated the injury diving for a grounder during a recent game in extended camp.

 

The Brewers Blog notes that if the 26-year-old Comox Valley minor baseball stalwart had stayed healthy, he almost certainly would have made the Brewers roster at the end of camp because of the injury situation at first base. And, third baseman Aramis Ramirez has gone on the DL with a sprained knee since. That is another position Green plays.

Green played in 58 games with the Brewers last year as a backup infielder, batting .184 with three homers and 14 RBI in 103 at-bats.

 

The left-handed hitting utility man is a .207/.266/.243 career hitter in 78 games over the last two seasons with Milwaukee. Green owns a .311/.386/.513 career batting line at the Triple-A level and has experience at the three non-shortstop infield positions.

First baseman Mat Gamel suffered a season-ending knee injury during spring training, and Green was in the mix as a possible replacement. First baseman Corey Hart (knee) and third baseman Aramis Ramirez (knee) are also on the DL. They’re both expected to return in the coming weeks.

Green’s season began promisingly when he was called on to fill in for the injured Brett Lawrie while he was with Team Canada at the World Baseball Classic.

In three games at 14 at-bats, Green went 4-for-14 for a .286 average.
