Green sports a 2.08 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 25:4 K:BB in 17.1 innings (14 appearances) this season.
He logged a 1.75 FIP and 34.0 K-BB% in 2017 and has a 1.73 FIP and 30.9 K-BB% so far this season, so he has picked up right where he left off in his breakout campaign. He trails only Aroldis Chapman, Adam Ottavino and Josh Hader in fWAR among relief pitchers (0.8 fWAR), and can be deployed confidently in almost all roto formats, even as a non closer.

Green will start transitioning back to the bullpen according to manager Aaron Boone, Erik Boland of Newsday Sports reports.
Boone made it sound as if Green was never really in consideration for a spot in the rotation, which makes sense when you factor in his success in 2017 and the strength of the team's starting arms. Last season, Green posted a 1.61 ERA and 0.74 WHIP with a 103:17 K:BB in 69 innings as a multi-inning weapon. Expect a similar workload for the 26-year-old in 2018.

Green is expected to be used out of the bullpen when the upcoming season begins, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Green made his second Grapefruit League start on Sunday against the Rays. While the Yankees ultimately lost the game, Green played well and threw two shutout innings, over which he struck out four batters and gave up three hits. However, manager Aaron Boone said that the team's preference is for Green to return to the bullpen for the 2018 season. As a result, Jordan Montgomery will be in line to open the season as New York's fifth starter. Green dominated as a reliever last season, logging a 1.61 ERA and 100 strikeouts over 67 relief innings.

Green is starting on the mound Tuesday against the Blue Jays, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
It was reported back in November that the Yankees were going to try Green as a starter this spring, and it looks like that plan hasn't changed. Green has made nine career major-league starts but has not had success in that role, putting up a 6.10 ERA. He was excellent out of the bullpen last year, posting a 1.61 ERA (backed up by a 1.75 FIP) in 67 innings and striking out 41 percent of the batters he faced. If Green can beat out Jordan Montgomery for the fifth starter role it would considerably increase his fantasy value, as he wouldn't even have to come particularly close to those numbers to be a very solid starter. This is definitely a battle to keep an eye on.

General manager Brian Cashman said Green will enter spring training as a starting pitcher, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Cashman noted that a return to the bullpen would be a fallback option for Green, who posted a remarkable 1.83 ERA, 0.74 WHIP and 103:17 K:BB across 69 innings while serving primarily as a reliever in 2017. The 26-year-old has flashed potential as a starter in the past -- posting a 1.52 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 100:21 K:BB in 16 starts (94.2 innings) with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in 2016 -- though he's yet to put it together in the majors, posting a 6.10 ERA and 1.51 WHIP in nine big-league starts. His role for 2018 will likely be determined in spring training.

Green (5-0) earned his fifth win Wednesday, tossing 1.1 scoreless innings out of the bullpen with three strikeouts against Tampa Bay.
Green has a great strikeout rate for the season, and he's been especially good at missing bats lately, fanning 20 without a walk in his last five appearance. It's tough to deploy long relievers in mixed leagues this time of year, but Green is more than a ratios play -- he's more appealing than a lot of streaming starting-pitching options.

Green allowed just one hit while striking out seven in 2.2 innings of scoreless relief during the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against Cleveland, but didn't factor into the decision as his team fell 2-1.
Green did a masterful job of keeping New York in the game after entering with a man on first and nobody out in the sixth inning. He allowed just one of his 44 pitches to be put in play, recording seven of eight outs via strikeout and the other on a caught stealing. There's little room for upward mobility in a Yankee bullpen that features three closer-worthy arms, but this tremendous effort shouldn't go unnoticed.

Green is set to earn some chances in the seventh inning moving forward, according to manager Joe Girardi, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.
Girardi removed Tyler Clippard from the seventh-inning role following his rough first half of the season. Although Adam Warren will likely earn most of the chances in the setup role, Green has been impressive during his action this season, and should be able to garner a few opportunities of his own. Throughout the course of the year, Green has posted an ERA of 1.80 with a phenomenal 0.69 WHIP, and a 47:8 K:BB in 35 innings of work. Since he pitched two shutout innings (five strikeouts) during Friday night's loss to Boston, Green will be unavailable out of the bullpen for Saturday's contest.

Green allowed one run over two innings and struck out two in Wednesday's loss to Toronto.
The 26-year-old entered in the sixth with starter Michael Pineda lasting only three innings. Green gave up a solo home run to Russell Martin in the seventh which tied the game 6-6. The right-hander has a 2.03 ERA and 0.77 WHIP with 38 strikeouts across 31 innings this season, and has proven to be a valuable long-reliever out of the Yankees' bullpen.

Green allowed two runs on two hits and one walk across two innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Orioles. He struck out three.
The Yankees went with a bullpen approach in this one, and while Green ran into trouble before being pulled with no outs in the third, the offense had already done significant damage by then and carried the club to victory. The 26-year-old has now allowed five runs over 9.1 innings in his last four appearances, but he still holds a solid 2.41 ERA and 0.70 WHIP on the season. Green is unlikely to see many traditional starts this year and is best suited as a long man out of the bullpen.
