Taylor Green has been sidelined by a hip injury since March 21 and the Brewers announced today that first baseman/third baseman will undergo surgery next week.

No word yet on an official return timetable, but Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the Brewers expect Green to be “out for an extended period.” Green had been made progress in his recovery, but suffered a setback recently during an extended spring training game.

Had he been healthy Green likely would have been the Brewers’ starting first baseman with Corey Hart and Mat Gamel also injured. Green struggled as a part-time player last season, but has hit .311 with a .900 OPS in 197 games at Triple-A.

UPDATE: The Brewers announced that he’ll miss the entire season.

    Too bad, I think this kid could play if he could stay out there.

      I get into it with my friends about that too. I think he can play he just needs time and what better time then with all the injuries.

      My friends think he is a 4A player. Too good for AAA not good enough for the Big league. I hope they are wrong but unfortunately it seems like it will be a while before we are able to find out.
