Debut Details
May 16, in a 12-2 loss to the Diamondbacks. The starting pitcher, he tossed four-plus innings, facing four batters in the fifth without getting an out, allowing six runs, four of them earned, on eight hits, and walking one while striking out four. He was also 0-for-2 at the plate, since his debut came on the road in an interleague game against a National League team. After striking out the first big league batter he faced, Jean Segura, swinging, he gave up his first run with two outs in the inning on a solo homer to left field by Paul Goldschmidt. A second run came across in the second inning when catcher Chris Herrmann singled to center to lead things off, stole second and, after moving to third on a ground out, scored on a two-out double by Segura. Green got out of the next two innings unscored upon before the Diamondbacks put five runs on the board in the five, four of them coming at Green’s expense. After Michael Bourn opened the inning off by reaching on an error by Yankees third baseman Mark Teixeira, Goldschmidt drew a walk to set the stage for Jake Lamb’s three-run homer to right-center field. The next batter, Yasmany Tomas, doubled which marked the end of Green’s night on the mound but didn’t close his stat line. Reliever Nick Goody came on and after getting Brandon Drury to line out to third base, moving Tomas to third, Herrman delivered a sacrifice fly to center field to close the book.

Player Notes
Green, like his teammate and co-debutante of the night Conor Mullee, was sent back down the next day but his blazing hot start in the Railriders’ rotation made him a safe bet for the honor of getting the call for this start. Though neither pitcher landed on most preseason top prospect lists, Green has definitely been opening eyes in the International League this spring in his first season at Triple-A with the Yankees. In 2015, he went 5-14 with a 3.93 ERA at Erie (Double-A/Tigers), striking out 137 while walking 43 and giving up 170 hits in 148 2/3 innings over 27 starts. A converted reliever, he spent his first full season as a starter in 2014 at West Michigan (Class A), going 6-4 with a 3.11 ERA in 23 starts and striking out 125 while walking just 28 and allowing 121 hits in 130.1 IP.
