Brewers sign reliever Green

Update at 4:45 p.m. CT: I’m hearing that Sean Green’s one-year contract with the Brewers pays $875,000. It’s non-guaranteed like most one-year deals.

The Brewers December spree continues:

The Milwaukee Brewers today signed free agent RHP Sean Green and re-signed INF Craig Counsell to one-year contracts.  The announcements were made by Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Melvin.
Green, 31, missed most of last season while on the disabled list with a right intercostal muscle strain.  He was recalled by the Mets on September 6 and did not record a decision in 11 relief appearances, posting a 3.86 ERA (9.1ip, 4er).
Green owns a career record of 10-11 with a 4.36 ERA in 250 relief appearances during five Major League seasons with Seattle (2006-08) and New York (2009-10).
A native of Louisville, Kentucky, Green attended the University of Louisville.  He was selected by the Colorado Rockies in the 12th round of 2000 First-Year Player Draft.
Counsell, 40, batted .250 with 2 HR and 21 RBI in 102 games last season.  He made 35 starts (25g at SS, 9g at 3B, 1g at 2B).
