New York Yankees Relief Pitchers, Continued

More from Call to the Pen

Adam Ottavino (1.3 fWAR) had a decent regular season in New York, posting a 1.90 ERA in 73 appearances. However, his postseason was beyond atrocious, setting THIS atrocious postseason record.

He managed to redeem himself some when he tossed a scoreless inning in game six of the ALCS, but he’ll really need to bring his A-game next season in order to redeem himself in the eyes of fans.

FINAL LETTER GRADE FOR 2019: B-


Chad Green (1.2 fWAR) had a tough start to the 2019 MLB season. In his first 10 appearances of the season, he pitched to a 16.43 ERA, ultimately being sent down to the minors for a short stint.

Upon returning, Green worked as an opener and a reliever, excelling in both roles. Starting in his 11th appearance, Green appeared in 44 games, 15 as an opener. In those games, he pitched to a 2.64 ERA in 61.1 IP, striking out 91 batters in the process.

FINAL LETTER GRADE FOR 2019: B-


This season, Zack Britton (0.9 fWAR) settled into his new role as a setup man, featuring his lowest ERA (1.91) since his stellar 2016 season (0.54 ERA) in Baltimore.
