Yankees reliever Chad Green looks like ‘significant injury’ on IL

Chad Green is facing possible surgery but is gathering more opinions about a right-arm trouble that caused him to skip Thursday’s game mid-at-bat. Aaron Boone said before Saturday afternoon’s game what looked like a “significant injury” to the right-arm reliever.

“He’s still gathering [information], making sure we are tight-lipped on a few more opinions. So we should have more potential later in the day, but it looks like a significant injury. But when we finalize those opinions and decisions are made, we’ll have more for you,” the Yankees manager said.

The Yankees placed him on the injured list on Saturday for bringing Ron Marinaccio to the roster and coverage in the bullpen with a double-header in particular on Sunday.

Green has been a stalwart in the Yankees bullpen for the past few years. In seven seasons with the Yankees, the 30-year-old has a 3.17 career ERA in 272 appearances. He has played 383.2 innings and scored 494 runs. Last season he played 67 matches, scoring 99 runs in 83.2 innings. In 14 matches this season, he scored 16 runs in over 15 innings and allowed five earned runs.

Green was at the clubhouse before Friday’s game was postponed and said he had to make some decisions. He was concerned about his hand, but Boone said he was handling it better than the manager.

“It was honestly very emotional for me. Chad has a lot that’s right about our sport. It’s Chad Green. The way he competes, the way he takes care of himself. That’s the professional he is. In that room that respects. Track record of consistent success. So, it’s tough,” Boone said. “As far as how he’s handling it, he sounds as good as you can. For those of you who know him, he’s just such a consistent person, a strong confident supporter. So he’s handling it.” And of course, I think, as well you can move on.”
