Infielder Taylor Green, who was ranked among the Brewers top prospects at one point in his career has retired after spending 2015 with Milwaukee’s Double-A affiliate Biloxi and will be joining the Brewers scouting department.
Green, 29, was a 25th round draft choice by the Brewers out of high school in 2005. He quickly worked his way up through Milwaukee’s farm system earning the Brewers Minor League Player of the Year Award in both 2007 and 2011.
He participated in the Arizona Fall League in both 2008 and 2009 and made his Major League debut with Milwaukee in 2011, hitting .270 in 20 games. He spent 58 games with the Brewers in 2012 but struggled in limited action before returning to Triple-A.
Green played for Team Canada in the 2013 World Baseball Classic, but suffered a hip injury that caused him to miss the entire 2013 season.
He appeared in 59 games between Double-A Huntsville and Triple-A Nashville in 2014 and hit .225 in 104 games last season.
