Nick Green agrees to minor league deal

According to Boston.com's Nick Cafardo, the Red Sox have agreed to terms with IF Nick Green on a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. Terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed. Green will reportedly be given a chance to win a utility infielder spot with Boston. The 30-year-old right-handed hitter last appeared in the majors in 2007 for the Seattle Mariners, when he played in 6 games, but did not record a hit in 7 trips to the plate. He spent all of last season with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees (AAA), where he compiled a .233/.285/.373 line in 112 games. He played mostly 2B and SS, but also saw time at 3B, RF, and LF.

Originally taken by the Atlanta Braves in the 32nd round of the 1998 draft, Green has played parts of 5 seasons with the Braves, Rays, Yankees, and Mariners, and owns career .240/.309/.347 numbers with 10 home runs and 59 RBI in 275 games. Among Green's career highlights is as a walk-off home run he hit as a member of the Braves off of Red Sox RHP Anastacio Martinez on July 2, 2004. Green also has an identical twin brother, Kevin, who had a brief minor league career with the Braves.
