Taylor Green has retired from baseball and taken a job as a scout with the Brewers.
Green looked like a pretty decent prospect just a few years ago and made it up to the majors for parts of 2011 and 2012. He's still just 29, but the infielder really struggled in the minors the last two years after coming back from hip surgery and has decided to hang up his cleats. Fri, Feb 26, 2016 12:58:00 PM

Brewers re-signed INF Taylor Green to a minor league contract.

It's not clear whether he'll be invited to spring training. Green hasn't appeared in the majors since 2012 and batted .235/.289/.335 with three home runs and 19 RBI over 59 games this season between Double- and Triple-A.

Taylor Green is focusing on playing third base in Brewers' camp.

Most of Green's experience is at third, but he has also played plenty of first and second base in the majors and minors. He missed all of last season after suffering a hip injury in March and was removed from the 40-man roster in October before being re-signed. Green likely has an uphill battle to secure an Opening Day roster spot.

Taylor Green is expected to miss the rest of the season following hip surgery.

Green will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair an impingement in his left hip. The 26-year-old infielder suffered the injury during the Cactus League schedule and suffered a setback in extended spring training. Now he'll have to wait until next spring to return to game action. It's just the latest blow to the Brewers' infield.

Taylor Green could need surgery to repair a left hip labrum injury.

Green suffered the injury back on March 21 and recently had a setback in extended spring training. He will travel to Milwaukee Thursday to have the hip examined before the Brewers decide what course of action to take. It's not clear how long an operation would sideline him.

Taylor Green (hip) has had a setback and will not begin his rehab assignment on Wednesday as hoped.

Brewers place INF Taylor Green on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 22, with a left hip labral injury.

Green suffered the injury while taking swings prior to a game last week. The 26-year-old infielder will be eligible to return for the second week of the season, but it's not clear if he'll be ready by then.

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke isn't sure Taylor Green (hip) and Jeff Bianchi (hip) will be ready in time for Opening Day.

"Bianchi and Green are two guys that we really thought were strongly going to be on our team," said Roenicke. "We figured Taylor was going to be in this mix so we've had to change our thinking a little bit in case he isn't ready. At this point, I don't know if he will be." Roenicke indicated that the club might seek bench help from outside the organization if Green and/or Bianchi need DL time.

Taylor Green tweaked his hip while taking swings prior to Tuesday's game and is expected to miss a few days.

Green is confident that it isn't a big deal, but he could begin the season on the disabled list if the symptoms linger. The 26-year-old entered spring training with a chance to win a bench spot, but he's hitting just .139 (5-for-36) with 12 strikeouts in 15 games.

Taylor Green fainted after giving two vials of blood on Saturday in Brewers camp.

Green is fine, and admitted to reporters that fainting is a common thing when he gives blood or is given shots. With Mat Gamel's health looking uncertain, Green could position himself to be the Brewers' early-season starting first baseman with a strong effort this spring.

Taylor Green smashed a pinch-hit two-run homer in a losing effort against the Nationals on Saturday.

The young third-sacker has had a disappointing season, hitting just .194/.270/.357 with three homers and 14 RBI through his first 98 at-bats. He certainly made good on his only chance in this one though, launching a Christian Garcia fastball into the seats in right field.
