Green (3-3) allowed an unearned run in the 10th inning that would end up deciding the game in a 4-3 loss to the Marlins on Friday. It was an unfortunate inning for Green, who gave up a run without allowing a hit due to a throwing error by catcher Kyle Higashioka. On the flip side, Green is having a solid year out of the bullpen with a 3.51 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 32:8 K:BB across 25.2 innings.
Green fired one scoreless inning as he earned the save in Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader against the Orioles. He allowed one hit and no walks while striking out zero. Green underwent some struggles in late August, but he's had four consecutive scoreless outings, and he picked up the save in Friday's extra-inning win. He carries a 2.89 ERA and 25:5 K:BB over 18.2 innings this year, but he's unlikely to see many save chances as Aroldis Chapman is still firmly entrenched as the Yankees' closer.
Green (2-2) took the loss and blown save in Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader against the Mets, pitching one inning and allowing three runs on three hits -- all home runs -- while striking out two. Green was summoned with a pair of runners aboard in the sixth inning and asked to protect a three-run lead. That advantage disappeared quickly, as Pete Alonso crushed a homer to center field to tie the game. Green retired the next two batters but then yielded consecutive solo shots to Dominic Smith and Jake Marisnick. Prior to Wednesday, Green had given up only one run in 12.2 frames this season; over his last two appearances, however, he has been torched for four homers and five total runs in two innings. His ERA has consequently risen to 3.68.
Green (2-1) took the loss and blown save against Atlanta in Game 2 of a doubleheader Wednesday, pitching one inning and allowing two runs on two hits while striking out two. Green entered the game having yielded only one run in 12.2 frames, but he was unable to protect a one-run lead in the sixth inning Wednesday. The right-hander retired the first two batters he faced, but Dansby Swanson then reached on an infield single, and Freddie Freeman turned the game around with a home run to left field. Green has been extremely effective this season, so this performance is likely just a bump in an otherwise smooth road. He still holds a 1.98 ERA, 0.59 WHIP and 19:4 K:BB through 10 appearances.
Green picked up the hold in Sunday's win over Boston, pitching 1.2 scoreless innings and allowing one hit and one walk while striking out two. Green has been one of the better setup men in baseball thus far, tying for the league lead with five holds while allowing only one run and two hits in nine outings covering 12.2 frames. He has also registered an impressive 17:4 K:BB and picked up a pair of wins along the way. It remains to be seen how Green's usage will change with the return of Aroldis Chapman (COVID-19) and consequent move of Zack Britton to a setup role, but he should continue to be deployed in high-leverage situations given his early season success.
