According to MLB.com’s Lyle Spencer, the Angels removed pitcher Nick Green from the 40-man roster to make room for Bobby Abreu and Green was "promptly snapped up from waivers by the Brewers." The Brewers designated reliever Luis Pena for assignment to make room, says MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy.
Green, 24, posted a 5.32 ERA in 159 Triple A innings last year. He had issues with hits and home runs allowed. In their ’09 Handbook, Baseball America said Green has a strong changeup but "lacks a swing-and-miss pitch" and "projects as a #4 starter at best."
