RP - TOR - IL60
Chad Green has agreed to a two-year, $8.5 million deal with the Toronto Blue Jays.
The deal includes options for 2025 and 2026. The 31-year-old was limited to just 15 innings in 2022 but was effective with a 3.00 ERA and 9.6 K/9. He will look to add depth to the Blue Jays bullpen behind closer Jordan Romano.
Yankees manager Aaron Boone confirmed on Sunday that Chad Green will undergo Tommy John surgery and will miss the remainder of the season.
Green left Thursday's game with forearm discomfort and was placed on the 15-day injured list on May 21, with what the team assumed was a significant injury. This is an especially tough blow for the Yankees as they recently lost Luis Gil for the season due to Tommy John surgery and are dealing with an apparent injury to Aroldis Chapman.
The Yankees have placed Chad Green on the 15-day IL with a “right elbow strain” according to Newsday Sports’ David Lennon.
Chad Green left Thursday’s game with what was believed to be forearm soreness. The team fears an extended injury so it’s safe to say he will be out longer than the minimum 15 days on this one. This is a blow to a Yankees bullpen that has been stellar this season. Green has posted a 3.00 ERA while striking out 16 batters in 15 innings this season. Wandy Peralta, Clarke Schmidt and Ron Marinaccio are all candidates for increased innings and roles with Green sidelined.
The Yankees announced that RP Chad Green left Thursday's game with right forearm discomfort and will be re-evaluated tomorrow.
The 30-year-old right-handed reliever currently has an ERA of 3.00 and WHIP of 1.20 with 16 strikeouts in 15 innings. He has picked up one save on the season and been a boost to fantasy managers in holds leagues.
Chad Green pitched a perfect ninth inning, striking out two, to earn his first save of the season in a 3-2 New York victory.
Chad Green earned the save on Monday with Chapman unavailable after saving the previous two games. Green looked good and can notch you strikeouts and occasional saves but Chapman doesn't leave many save opportunities for the rest of the bullpen. However, the Yankees have won 10 straight so if the wins keep coming this season there could be more save opportunities than usual to go around.
