There is now a notable injury concern for the New York Yankees regarding Chad Green.

The veteran reliever was forced to leave the Yankees’ series finale against the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday due to a right arm injury. He was brought into the game by manager Aaron Boone during the sixth inning of the contest, where he would go on to throw 11 pitches and record a pair of outs.

After a pick-off attempt, Green had a talk with catcher Kyle Higashioka on the mound, which then prompted Boone and team athletic trainer Tim Lentych to join the discussion. The decision was subsequently made by Boone to remove Green from the game, as he called for Jonathan Loaisiga to finish off the inning.

The Yankees later announced that Green is dealing with right forearm discomfort. The team plans to evaluate the seventh-year reliever on Friday.

As was the case in previous seasons, Green has emerged as a reliable reliever for the AL East powerhouse. He entered Thursday’s game having logged 14.1 innings pitched in the campaign so far, which ranked fourth on the team among relievers.

The Yankees have not dealt with a multitude of injuries within their reliever unit so far this season. Overall, Zack Britton remains as the team’s most lingering injury worry, as he has not pitched in the 2022 campaign after undergoing Tommy John surgery last September.

The Yankees have been cruising as of late, winning nine of their last 10 games. They sit in first place in the AL East with a 28-9 record.
