Taylor Green Named To All-PCL Team

Sounds Infielder Enjoyed Solid First Year At Class AAA Level

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – Former Nashville Sounds infielder Taylor Green has been named to the 2011 All-Pacific Coast League Team, which was announced by the league office this afternoon.

The 24-year-old batted .336 (141-for-420) with 36 doubles, 22 home runs, 88 RBIs, and 74 runs scored in 120 games with the Sounds this season before earning his first Major League promotion to Milwaukee on Saturday. He led Nashville with 47 multiple-hit efforts and was second on the club with 19 multiple-RBI games.

At the time of his promotion, he ranked 5th in the PCL with a team-best .336 average, was tied for 6th with his team-leading 36 doubles, placed 8th in slugging (.589), and was 13th in the league with 88 RBIs.

During his time with Double-A Huntsville (three games) and the Sounds this summer, Green established new single-season career highs in several categories: home runs (22), doubles (37), RBIs (91), runs scored (76), hits (145), and batting average (.336).

The All-PCL selection is the latest in a string of honors bestowed upon the youngster this season.

Green, who has yet to make his Major League debut for Milwaukee in two games since his call-up, was named the Brewers’ Minor League Player of the Month in June and July.

From June 1st until his departure from Nashville on August 27th, Green led the Sounds with a .377 average (107-for-284) (2nd in the PCL over that stretch), 69 RBIs (led PCL), 107 hits (2nd in PCL), and 44 extra-base hits (T-2nd in PCL).

A few season highlights for the British Columbia native include: recording an extra-base hit in 10 consecutive games from June 4th-15th (4 HR, 7 2B), the 2nd-longest such streak in the PCL since 2005, matching a Sounds single-game record with five runs scored and tying his own career high with six RBIs during a 4-for-4, two-homer evening on July 28th at Oklahoma City, and belting Nashville’s only two grand slams of 2011 (June 5th at New Orleans, July 11th at Albuquerque).

The All-PCL squad is selected annually through voting by the league’s managers and media representatives.

Green is the first Sound to be recognized on the All-PCL team since 2009, when shortstop Alcides Escobar was elected.
