Yankees still waiting on injury update on righty reliever Chad Green: ‘It’s definitely a concern right now’

Yankees still waiting on injury update on righty reliever Chad Green: ‘It’s definitely a concern right now’

After years of having their pitching depth tested by injuries, the Yankees came into this season feeling they were fully stocked for the rotation and the bullpen. That stockpile will likely be tested. Chad Green was examined on Friday after leaving Thursday’s game with right forearm discomfort and while there was no diagnosis made public, Aaron Boone said that it was “definitely a concern” now.

On top of that, pitching prospect Luis Gil, who made a spot start for the Yankees a week ago, has a “significant” injury,  the Yankees manager announced after Friday night’s series opener against the White Sox at Yankee Stadium was postponed by rain.

“I think there’s that fear, sure,” Boone said when asked if he thought Green’s injury was significant. “But, again, it’s definitely a concern right now. But I’d rather get with the doctors and kind of see where we’re at by the end of the day tomorrow.”

The fear with any forearm discomfort is obviously damage to the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL). A significant compromise of that ligament is what leads to Tommy John surgery. This is not the first time Green has dealt with forearm discomfort. In 2016, Green was diagnosed with a flexor tendon strain in similar circumstances and he recovered through rest.

Green was in the clubhouse before the game was canceled on Friday and told reporters they were looking for more information to make decisions about his path forward.

Gil left his start with Triple-A Scranton on Wednesday night with an elbow injury. Boone said that Gil is going to be out of the mix for a while.

“It’s a significant injury. But they’re still kind of working through opinions and all that so I don’t want to get too far into it,” Boone said. “But it’s significant.”

With the rainout, the Yankees have 10 games in the next nine days and will once again need a spot starter. Gil made a spot start for the big league club in Chicago last week allowing four earned runs on five hits over four innings. He walked two and struck out six.

He is obviously out of consideration.

“JP Sears has been down there starting and getting built up too. So that’s one of the things now we’ll kind of talk about and see just where we want to insert that sixth guy,” Boone said. “But it could be a number of the candidates and a number of different ways you can go about it.”

Gil made a big splash when he came up to the big leagues last season. He did not give up a run through his first three starts. He ended up making six emergency starts for the Yankees as they dealt with injuries and finished with a 3.07 ERA. He struck out 38 over 29.1 innings pitched, but also walked 19.

Right-hander Ron Marinaccio was back in the Yankees clubhouse Friday afternoon as part of the taxi squad, Boone said.

“In case we have to make a move for Green with the IL,” Boone said.

RAIN PUSHES NESTOR TO SATURDAY

The Yankees and White Sox will make up Friday night’s rained-out game on Sunday in a single-admission doubleheader. The first pitch will be at 3:05 p.m. with the regularly scheduled Sunday Night Game to follow at 7:05 p.m.

With the rainout, the Yankees’ third in the last two weeks, they are still working out their rotation. Nestor Cortes, who was scheduled to start Friday night’s game, will start the afternoon game on Saturday now. The lefty made his last start on Sunday against the White Sox in Chicago.

“Nestor will go tomorrow. And then we’ll talk about how we want to line it up moving forward,” Boone said. “We may just stay on line with [Luis Severino] and [Jameson Taillon on Sunday],” Boone said. “But we’ll get together and talk about [Sunday], but for sure Nestor on [Saturday].”

Only tickets for Sunday night’s game will be honored for the doubleheader. Fans with paid tickets for Friday’s game may exchange them for tickets to a similar regular season game at Yankee Stadium. See the Yankees’ rain check policy on their website.

The Andy Pettitte bobblehead promotion from Friday night has been rescheduled for June 10.

Gaslit Episode 5: May 22 Release, Time, Where To Watch And Plot Speculations

Gaslit is a historical drama that takes a modern peek at the 1970s political Watergate Scandal. We infer from the synopsis that the series focuses on untold stories and forgotten-era characters.

Before we go on to the 5th episode, let’s refresh ourselves on what happens in the 4th episode. We’re thrown into August 1972, about 2 months after the Watergate break-in. We’re given a little peek into Dean’s newfound closeness to Nixon after John Mitchell was removed from his role following the findings of his closeness to the break-in. There’s also a fictional version of Alexander Butterfield being involved in some surveillance tapes.

From here, we pan the camera immediately onto Martha. She has PTSD, and the nightmares of what happened when she was in her hotel room in California haunt her. Their daughter Marty develops a drinking problem when she finds herself in splits. She plays the classic sipping drinks and fluttering around the house during parties and watching movies to play it off.

We’re also shown that John might not be happy about being fired, despite his happy outward self. He is seen drinking uncontrollably, trying to drown his sorrows while listening to Nixon on the tele. Martha notices this when she walks into his room high from her prescription drugs for her trauma.

Howard now has cold feet about being accused of the break-in. He asks Liddy to plead to the administration or the President to promise them some relief if they’re found guilty. Liddy does not take this well and asks him to keep his mouth shut and not to talk to the involved authorities. After a while, the judge announced the final sentencing to be done in two months.

The FBI continues with its investigation. The director, who works with the President, tries to misdirect the investigation by telling his agents that they aren’t allowed to investigate or question higher officials without a concrete case.

Dean, unable to decide what he wants, seeks some solace in Mo. She breaks up with him after having had enough of his two-sided behaviors and inability to choose sides. Dean, however, goes back to meet her at the end of the episode.

Now for speculations for the next episode. As of now, we have no spoilers floating around. The synopsis says, “Martha finally speaks out, putting a strain on her marriage; the FBI comes closer to answering the real story behind Watergate, and John Dean is forced to come clean to Mo on their Camp David honeymoon.” We might see how Martha handles the issues she faces in California and how it affects her new life outside politics. We may also see the drama that ensues post-John coming clean.

Where To Watch

Gaslit is available on cable as well as OTT on Starz. It is also available on the Starz Play app on Amazon Prime and Hulu for the USA. The episode, “Honeymoon,” releases on Sunday, May 22nd, at 8 p.m. ET. The episode should be available shortly after, with Amazon Prime releasing it at around 8 a.m. UTC on Sunday.
