Green will serve as the opener Tuesday against Toronto, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Green hasn't thrown more than two innings in any appearance this season, so don't expect him to go deep on this occasion. Nestor Cortes is expect to follow him out of the bullpen.
Green will serve as the opener for Thursday's game against the Astros, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Green was impressive as an opener over the weekend, allowing just one hit while striking out six batters before giving way to Nestor Cortes. The Yankees have yet to announce who will follow Green, but he figures to see a similar workload Thursday.
Green will serve as the opener for Saturday's game against the White Sox, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports. Green will toss the first inning or so before making way for the primary pitcher, who figures to be Nestor Cortes.
Green will serve as the opener for Sunday's bullpen day against Cleveland, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports. Green has filled the opener role three times this season. He hasn't recorded more than six outs in any appearance, so he shouldn't be expected to pitch deep in Sunday's game.
Green struck out the side during the first inning as an opener against the Padres on Monday. His first two appearances as an opener this year did not go well, as he allowed three runs in 2.2 innings, but this outing couldn't have gone better. For the second time this season, Green struck out the side. The right-hander still has a long way to go, though, to bring his numbers back to a respectable level. He is 0-2 with a 11.30 ERA, 2.02 WHIP and 16 strikeouts in 14.1 innings over 16 appearances during 2019.
