2018 Fantasy Outlook
Green was a swingman for the Yankees in 2016. The ERA was ugly, but it did have an alibi because he was not meant to be a starter. The strikeout rate and walk rates were starter worthy, but fastball/slider pitchers need both pitches to be excellent to go without a third pitch. Green did not have that, but the move to the bullpen allowed him to come in and throw fastballs with regularity as he threw the ol’ number one 70 percent of the time last season. The crazy-high home run rate normalized in 2017 (0.52 HR/9) and Green became a valuable commodity in only leagues with five wins, sparkling ratios and 100-plus strikeouts in relief. His 2018 role will be more of the same as the bullpen should come back intact. Each season has a few relievers with phenomenal skills but no clear path to saves; Green is at the top of that list for 2018. Read Past Outlooks

Implodes in relief appearance
PNew York Yankees
July 16, 2018
Green was tagged for three runs on three hits and one walk over 1.2 innings and picked up the loss in relief Sunday against the Indians.
ANALYSIS
Green retired only five of the 10 batters he faced, needing 37 pitches to do so. The right-hander didn't display his usual command or control in the outing, yielding a home run, hitting a batter and tossing a wild pitch. Even after the disastrous appearance, Green still maintains a tidy 2.74 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 57:9 K:BB across 46 innings on the season.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The Yankees traded for Green last offseason, who to that point was a fairly unheralded prospect that had never made it above the Double-A level. The 25-year-old ended up posting a spectacular 1.52 ERA in his first taste of Triple-A action in 2016 and leveraged that success into a spot in the big league club's starting rotation down the back stretch. Though things didn't always go as smoothly in the majors -- he especially struggled keeping the ball in the yard (2.4 HR/9) -- the young righty was able to miss bats and ended the year with 52 strikeouts in 45.2 innings. Unfortunately, Green's season was cut short by a UCL sprain and strained flexor tendon suffered in early September, and while he is expected to avoid surgery, it's unclear if he will be 100 percent by the time spring training rolls around. Once healthy, Green could be handed a spot in a somewhat shallow rotation, profiling as a No. 4 or No. 5 starter.
