From MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy comes word that the Brewers have agreed to terms on a one-year, $875,000 contract with right-handed reliever Sean Green.

Green missed most of the 2010 season while battling a right intercostal muscle strain and allowed eight walks over just 9.1 innings of work when healthy.  The Mets non-tendered him earlier this month, making him a free agent.

The 31-year-old righty clocked over 200 relief innings for the Mariners and Mets from 2007-2009, but he has never finished with a WHIP under 1.44 and will have a hard time landing a spot on the Brewers’ Opening Day roster.

Green will probably serve as organizational depth for the Brew Crew in 2011, beginning the year at Triple-A Nashville and climbing to the majors only in the event of an injury or some other emergency.

Yes, it’s a slow news night.  Happy Holidays.
