Milwaukee Brewers

Green was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 25th round (745th pick) of the 2005 Major League Baseball Draft. He made his professional debut playing for the Rooke League Helena Brewers in 2006. He was promoted to the Class A West Virginia Power in 2007. That season, in which he had a .327 batting average, 14 home runs, and 86 RBI, Green was named the Brewers Organization Player of the Year. He also made the mid and post-season South Atlantic League All-Star teams. Baseball America selected him as a "Low Class A 3B All-Star".

After the 2007 season, he was named to Team Canada's Baseball World Cup team that participated in the 2007 World Cup in Taipei, Taiwan. The team qualified for a spot in the 2008 Summer Olympics, but Green did not make the team.

In 2008, he played for the Class A-Advanced Brevard County Manatees. He was selected for the mid and post-season Florida State League (FSL) All-Star teams, and finished second in the FSL Home Run Derby. Green split the 2009 season between the Class A Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and the Double-A Huntsville Stars. His entire 2010 season was played with Huntsville.

In 2011, Green was promoted to the major leagues.[1] He made his debut on August 31 as a pinch hitter, singling in his first at bat for his first career hit. In 37 at bats, he batted .270.[2]

Green hit his first major league home run off of Carlos Mármol in a win against the Chicago Cubs on June 6th, 2012.

During April 2013, Green underwent left hip surgery and will miss all of the 2013 season.

Green was outrighted off the Brewers roster on October 4, 2013.
