Green earned the hold against Minnesota on Tuesday, tossing a perfect inning during which he struck out one batter. Green came on in the eighth inning with New York holding a two-run lead and set the side down in order. It was a nice bounceback outing after the right-hander gave up a season-high four runs in his previous appearance. Green has nine holds, a 3.03 ERA and a 0.84 WHIP through 26 outings as the Yankees' top setup man.
Green (0-4) allowed four runs on four hits and struck out one in two-thirds of an inning, taking the loss versus Boston on Saturday. Green was hit hard, as Enrique Hernandez and Christian Vazquez each tagged him for RBI doubles. Bobby Dalbec added a two-run home run as insurance for Boston. Despite the rough outing, Green still has a 3.14 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 27:7 K:BB across 28.2 innings this year. He's added two saves, eight holds and a blown save in a high-leverage role.
Green pitched a scoreless seventh inning against the Blue Jays in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader to earn his second save of the season. With Aroldis Chapman battling an illness, Green stepped in to nail down the win for New York. Manager Aaron Boone said he was hopeful that Chapman will be available Friday, so this window to earn saves may close quickly, but Green has near-universal appeal in fantasy regardless as a ratio stabilizer with upside as a closer in waiting.
Green earned a hold against Texas on Thursday with a perfect inning of work. Green followed up Domingo German's dominant seven innings with his own spotless frame. He threw eight of 13 pitches for strikes and induced two groundouts along with a popout. Aside from a three-run blowup against Houston on May 6, Green has been dominant this season. The right-hander has posted a 2.01 ERA, 0.72 WHIP, six holds, one save and a 21:3 K:BB across 22.1 innings overall.
Green (0-3) took the loss and suffered a blown save against the Astros on Thursday as a result of allowing three runs on two hits and a walk. His only out came by way of strikeout. Green entered the contest with a shiny 1.02 ERA through 14 appearances, but that number shot all the way up to 2.50 after the rough outing. The big blow was a three-run home run off the bat of Jose Altuve that pushed Houston into a two-run lead. Green has an overall 19:3 K:BB across 18 innings this season, so he should remain a trusted part of New York's bullpen.
