Yankees: Call to the Bullpen And A Plan To Fix Things
Chad Green had a small amount of success winning two games in eight starts, but his four losses and 5.94 ERA as a starter will not suffice. While with the RailRiders Green’s ERA in 94.1 innings was an incredible 1.52.
Green was moved to the bullpen like Severino when his failure outweighed his success, but the Yankees did not allow as much time for Green as they did for Severino.

Green did not record a win or loss when he was moved to the bullpen with only 9.1 innings, did not allow a run and earned one save while striking out eight and only walking three. Hopefully, his bullpen experience either shortens his rope with starting or places him in the bullpen permanently.
Bryan Mitchell will not be the strikeout king, but he does weigh-in on the possibility of starting for the Yankees. His 3.24 ERA in 25 innings could boost Girardi and Brian Cashman’s curiosity on trying to wiggle him into the starting rotation on a more permanent basis; nevertheless, he would make for a good relief pitcher if that is what they decide to do with him.

The Yankees have their work cut out for them in the starting department as is, so hopefully, the contributions of these players along with the boost of one of the more dominant looking bullpens will allow the Yankees to maintain leads.
