New York Yankees reliever Chad Green could help out the Colorado Rockies bullpen
New York Yankees reliever Chad Green, 30, was on our list of one trade target per team in October and he still would be a good fit for the Colorado Rockies today.
Green has been remarkably consistent in the Yankees bullpen in recent years. Since the start of 2017 (his first full MLB season), Green has (with the obvious exception of the shortened 2020 season) pitched in at least 69 innings per season and since 2017, he has an ERA of 2.95, an ERA+ of 148, and a FIP of 3.02. He has a WHIP in that span of 0.960 and a strikeout to walk ratio of nearly 6:1.
New York Yankees pitcher Michael King could be a starter or reliever for the Colorado Rockies
Michael King, 26, does not have a ton of MLB experience as, despite his two-plus years of MLB service time, he only has 32 games (10 starts) and 92 innings pitched at the MLB level. That’s partially due to a few injuries but in the majors and minors, he has experience pitching as both a starter and a reliever.
In the minors, King was primarily a starter (80 games and 59 were starts) but in the majors in 2021, he was much more effective as a reliever. In 16 relief outings, opponents hit .207/.281/.297 with an ERA of 2.33. In his six starts, King’s opponents hit .278/.372/.443 with an ERA of 5.47.
