Yankees' Chad Green: Candidate to open July 26
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green is one of three pitchers who could serve as the opener in the Yankees' third game against Washington, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Michael King and Jonathan Loaisiga are other options to open the final game of the team's opening series against the Nationals. Green has experience as an opener -- he filled the role 15 times for the Yankees last season -- but was expected to fill a traditional relief role this year. The need for an opener could be limited to one turn through the rotation with Masahiro Tanaka (concussion) on track to rejoin the rotation as soon as July 31.

Yankees' Chad Green: Experimenting with curveball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green has been working on adding a curveball to his arsenal, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

Green relied almost exclusively on fastballs and sliders last season -- per Statcast, he tossed one of those two pitches 98 percent of the time -- but he has already broken out his new curveball in spring training, according to Wagner. A curve could serve as a devastating contrast to Green's mid-to-upper-90s fastball and help improve upon his elite 33.1 percent strikeout rate.

Yankees' Chad Green: Unlikely to work as opener in '20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green said last week that he doesn't expect to see much use as an opener in 2020 and plans to fill a more traditional relief role, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. "Opening was a little bit out of necessity last year, but we've got some guys that are going to step up and pitch some big innings," Green said.

The Yankees will likely be without James Paxton (back) for at least the first two months of the season, but the offseason addition of staff ace Gerrit Cole along with Jordan Montgomery's return to full strength after missing much of 2019 while recovering from Tommy John surgery leaves New York's rotation in a better spot compared to a year ago. As a result, Green shouldn't be required to work regularly as an opener, a role he filled 15 times last season. Green wasn't demonstrably better as an opener (3.72 ERA, .333 wOBA in 19.1 innings) than he was while working out of the bullpen (4.35 ERA, .302 wOBA in 49.2 innings), so the organization isn't overly incentivized to go back to using him at the beginning of games.

Yankees' Chad Green: Won't need arbiter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green and the Yankees avoided arbitration with a one-year deal Friday.

Green started last season very poorly, getting sent down in late April with a 16.43 ERA and a 2.48 WHIP. He sorted things out in the minors and recovered to finish with a respectable 4.17 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP.

Yankees' Chad Green: Serving as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green will open a bullpen game for the Yankees in Game 6 of the ALCS against the Astros on Saturday.

The Yankees are expected to use plenty of pitchers as they face the second of potentially three straight must-win games. Green has been decent thus far in the playoffs, allowing two runs in 5.2 innings.

Yankees' Chad Green: Working as opener Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green will serve as the opener Sunday against the Rangers, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

The 28-year-old will make his 15th start in the final game of the regular season as Masahiro Tanaka is set to follow as the primary pitcher. Green has a 4.24 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 96:18 K:BB through 68 innings this season.

Yankees' Chad Green: Opening Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green will serve as the opener Sunday against the Blue Jays, Randy Miller of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Green handles longer outings than most relievers do, but he hasn't thrown more than three innings in any game this season, so don't expect him to pitch long enough to be eligible for a win. Jordan Montgomery (shoulder) will follow Green for his first appearance of the season.

Yankees' Chad Green: Picks up fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green (4-4) received the win after surrendering one run on a hit and a walk while striking out two over 2.1 innings in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against Detroit.

Green was called on with two outs in the fifth inning, and he ultimately took home the victory after giving up just one run in the seventh on a groundout to shortstop. The 28-year-old right-hander owns a 4.57 ERA with 83 strikeouts over 63 innings this season following Thursday's relief appearance.

Yankees' Chad Green: Claims win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green (3-4) was the pitcher of record in Sunday's 10-5 win over the Red Sox after tossing three perfect innings in relief and striking out five.

Green's ERA still sits at 4.60 after the flawless showing, but the righty has generally performed as expected since the beginning of June. In his 31 appearances over the past three-plus months, Green has supplied a 2.58 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 64 strikeouts in 45.1 innings. The Yankees have deployed him as an opener 13 times this season, and he could fill that role again Tuesday in Detroit. After Sunday's 37-pitch outing, Green probably wouldn't be asked to cover more than an inning or two, however.

Yankees' Chad Green: Working as Wednesday's opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green will start Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Green hasn't worked as an opener in more than two weeks since allowing five runs on four hits in one-third of an inning against the Indians. The 28-year-old has a 3.19 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 65:12 K:BB over 48 innings since returning from his early-season stint on the injured list.

Yankees' Chad Green: Clobbered by Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green served as the opener and took the loss against Cleveland on Thursday, pitching one-third of an inning and giving up five runs on four hits and a walk while striking out one.

The Yankees had been 9-0 in games opened by Green this season, but hopes of continuing that streak were dashed when the Indians ambushed the 28-year-old in the first inning. Green loaded the bases with nobody out on a pair of singles and a walk, then struck out Yasiel Puig before serving up the first grand slam of Jose Ramirez's career. When Jason Kipnis went deep immediately after Ramirez, Green was pulled having retired only one batter while giving up a season-high five runs. Despite the blowup, Green could continue to be used as an opener -- perhaps even in the playoffs -- as the approach has been an overall success for the Yankees this year.

Yankees' Chad Green: Slated for opening duties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green is in line to serve as the Yankees' opening pitcher for Thursday's game against the Indians.

The Yankees haven't tabbed a pitcher for primary duties behind Green, but Jonathan Loaisiga, Nestor Cortes and Chance Adams should all be available to handle at least two innings, if necessary. Green has made 11 turns as an opener this season, posting a 1.80 ERA and 23:5 K:BB across 15 innings in those outings.

Yankees' Chad Green: Opening Game 2 of doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green is starting Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Orioles, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

Green will serve as the opener as the Yankees go with a bullpen game for the second half of Monday's twin bill. The right-hander hasn't pitched more than 2.1 innings in any of his 11 outings since the All-Star break, so he likely won't pitch more than an inning or two Monday.

August 9, 2019 11:12 PM
Yankees' Chad Green: Opening Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green will serve as the opener for Saturday's game against the Blue Jays, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Green will toss the first inning or two before making way for a primary pitcher. The Yankees have yet to disclose who will eat up the bulk of the innings Saturday.

Yankees' Chad Green: Nabs rare save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green pitched a scoreless ninth inning and was credited with the save against Boston on Sunday, giving up one walk while whiffing one batter.

With Aroldis Chapman unavailable after picking up saves in the previous two games, Aaron Boone turned to Green -- one day removed from a 25-pitch outing as the opener -- to protect a three-run ninth inning lead. The 28-year-old proved up to the task, allowing only a two-out walk before striking out Jackie Bradley Jr. to end the game. The save was the third of Green's career, two of which have come in his last five appearances. He's no threat to take over as closer but appears to be a viable option when Chapman needs a breather.

Yankees' Chad Green: Opener for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green will start Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Red Sox, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

He has not logged more than 2.1 innings in an outing this season, so he obviously won't go deep enough to get a win. Chance Adams seems like a likely primary pitcher to relieve Green.

Yankees' Chad Green: Notches first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green retired one batter in the 10th inning to secure his first save of the season in Tuesday's 14-12 win over the Twins.

Green was summoned from the bullpen in place of Adam Ottavino to protect a two-run lead with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the 10th. Max Kepler tagged Green for a hard line drive on the fourth pitch of the at-bat, but center fielder Aaron Hicks made a diving grab to secure the save for the right-hander. While Green hasn't been nearly as dominant in 2019 as he was the previous two seasons, he's been stellar since returning in mid-May from a brief minor-league assignment. Over 24 outings since that time, Green has posted a 1.71 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 44:4 K:BB in 31.2 innings.

Yankees' Chad Green: To start nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green will serve as the opener for Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Rays, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Green has been excellent of late, surrendering just one run over his last 11 appearances (17 innings) while fanning 25 over that stretch. He figures to work the first inning or two of Thursday's nightcap before making way for a bulk reliever.

June 25, 2019 05:40 PM
Yankees' Chad Green: Serving as opener again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

June 20, 2019 08:24 PM
Yankees' Chad Green: Opening Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
