Weekly Prospects Check In: Chad Green


With the sudden emergence of Chad Green as a starting pitcher down in Scranton with the RailRiders and the recent struggles of Ivan Nova in the rotation in the Bronx you have to wonder how long the hypothetical leash is for Nova at this point. Green has already used his minor league option for the 2016 and on the same night that Nova was allowing opposite field home runs to start games against the Texas Rangers Green was shutting down Triple-A hitting with six scoreless innings.

Nova may be better suited in the bullpen and the Yankees may need to finally face that fact. I know he’s a free agent to be and you want to build Nova’s trade value or potential to offer a qualifying offer but it just isn’t going to happen. Nova was inconsistent before the Tommy John surgery and he’s been inconsistent since. He is what he is and so is Chad Green. Give him a chance to flourish and work it all out because at least he, unlike Nova, has a future with the club.

Find out how he does tomorrow when he makes his second start of the season for the Yankees.

  1. Just a thought Daniel, it looks to me we can replace two of the 3 headed monster.
    Nova, Eovaldi, Coshow and "Ace" all have two pitches and throw 95-100 mph fastballs. Any of them that can't get a 3rd pitch working well enough to be a starter should end up in the BP.
    Just think if we trade Miller and Chapman! We could end up with a better BP than it is now.
    Look at this:
    Closer-Dellin
    8th-"Ace"
    7th-Eovaldi
    6th-Coshow
    5th Nova
    4-Lindgren

    Starters:
    Severino
    Tanaka
    Campos
    "Ace" Acevedo
