Taylor Green demoted for Jeff Bianchi

Infielder Taylor Green was demoted to AAA Nashville over the weekend, and yesterday the Brewers replaced him with shortstop Jeff Bianchi. Formerly a decent prospect in the Royals system and claimed off waivers by the Brewers from the Mets, the team will try to see if Bianchi can take playing time away from Cesar Iztruris and Cody Ransom. Bianchi is a decent glove, low-power guy who should hit for average and not much else.

As for Green, this demotion should not be viewed as a negative. Green was never going to wrestle away playing time from Corey Hart or Aramis Ramirez, and with Rickie Weeks' slump seemingly over, there was no path for playing time barring an injury. This move allows Green to get consistent playing time while hopefully improving the shortstop position for the Brewers.
