Chad Green – RHP

The Yankees don’t seem to sure what they want to do with reliever Chad Green. Green got a chance to start last season starting eight of his 12 appearances. That didn’t fare too well for Green as he posted a 4.73 ERA with a WHIP of 1.40. This season he’s worked mostly out of the pen, although he did make one spot start this year. In 23 1/3 innings, he’s logged a 2.31 ERA, with a FIP of 2.37. One thing that stands out is his K/9 which has been over 10 in his brief career.

Green has been limited to low-leverage spots, and over at Pinstripe Alley, they feel it’s time to give him a larger role. For now, his role is in Scranton as he’s been sent to Triple-A. While the Yankees don’t seem sure on what Green’s role is with the team, the Cubs could make good use of his talent as a swingman down the stretch. The Mariners seemed unsure of what to do with Mike Montgomery, so the Cubs took advantage.
