Green’s deal includes an invitation to spring training and Frisaro writes that the 34-year-old “will have an excellent chance to make the team as a backup middle infielder.”
Green spent most of last season at Triple-A, where he hit .344 with 12 homers and a .996 OPS in 63 games, and also appeared in seven games for the Marlins.

He’s a typical utility man.
