    Wow that is a great return for Callaspo.

    Sounds like one of Aybar/Kendrick on the way out, Green can play SS/2B and is MLB ready

    He continued his steady rise with an assignment to Triple-A Sacramento in 2012, hitting .296/.338/.458 with 28 doubles and 15 homers. Interestingly, he dramatically cut his strikeout rate, fanning just 75 times in 562 plate appearances, thanks to some adjustments to his batting stance. He played all over the field, seeing action in center, left, shortstop, third base,and second base.

    The braintrust finally settled on second base as his long-term position in 2013. He needs some polish after all the switching, but his range, arm strength, and hands all fit well there and in the end he should be above-average as a defender. He's continued hitting the ball, batting .318/.375/.500 this season. Overall, in 206 Triple-A games he's hit .305/.353/.475 with a 113 wRC+.

    Green is a 6-3, 180-pound right-handed hitter and thrower, born September 27, 1987. Oakland has always liked his swing, and while he's never drawn a ton of walks, the adjustments to his stance in '12 helped him reduce his strikeouts while still showing good pop for an infielder. He runs decently but isn't a big basestealing threat. He has settled in as a second baseman, and while all the moving around might have slowed his development slightly, having experience at multiple positions only enhances his value in this age of short benches and giant pitching staffs.

    I don't think there is anything else that Green can learn from the Pacific Coast League so it is time to let him play. He's 25 now, a bit old for a premium prospect, but if he keeps the strike zone under control he should have a long big league career

    Green in Triple-A this year

    Avg .325 HR 11 2B 27 3B 3 OBP .379 SLG .500 SB 4 CS 1

    Former 13th overall pick. Rated the A's #5 prospect by Sickles #8 by Baseball America. I am shocked we got this much for Callaspo

    This was a surprising, but stealthy move by Dipoto. Now the real question is what do we trade Kendrick or Aybar for?
    MIKE TROUT FOR MVP!!!!!

    Green was born in Fullerton, went to high school in Anaheim, and went to college at USC. I bet he's excited
