Sean Green Report

Sean Green, RHP, Seattle Mariners
Drafted 347th Overall (12th Rd), 2000 Draft, Louisville
Bats R/Throws R
26 YO, 6'6", 230 lbs

The OTHER Sean Green was traded for Aaron "Big Country" Taylor back just before X-mas. In essence, he was really traded because he wouldn't take up a spot on the 40 man roster.

Green is a live arm, but not really a good pitcher. This season was his first above A-ball, and he has a 4.72 career minor league ERA in 311 innings. This season, his ERA was a bit better at 3.03, but his strikeouts were still low (5.8 per 9 IP) and his walk rate is still average at best (3.4 per 9).

Green works out of the bullpen and if he has a future, it is there. The Mariners minor league system has thinned out significantly over the last half decade, with most of their significant pitching prospects either moving up to the major leagues, getting injured, or both. If he gets lucky, Green could end up seeing some Major League service time. He'll probably spend most of 2005 in Tacoma. He's unlikely to have a long major league career. And he's probably just a season or two away from his future as a minor league vagabond, as he's close to being eligible for minor league free agency.

ETA: Late 2005/Early 2006
