Sean Moves On To Green(er) Pastures: Former Met Reliever Signs With Brewers
It is being reported that (former) Met reliever Sean Green has signed on with the Milwaukee Brewers.
Green, whom the Mets acquired in the blockbuster trade that sent Endy Chavez, Mike Carp and Aaron Heilman to Seattle for JJ Putz, Green and Jeremy Reed. Unfortunately for the Mets, Green never really panned out well. In his first year with the team (2009) he went 1-4 with a 4.52 ERA in 79 games.
Green had an injury filled year in 2010, where he only appeared in 11 games for the Mets. He was sidelined most of the year with a stress fracture of his rib. He tried altering his delivery to be similar to another former Mets, Chad Bradford. Green never experienced the success Bradford did with the Mets.
Matt Pignataro is reporting that Green has signed a one year deal with the Brew Crew.
