Yankees pitcher Tyler Clippard has been moved out of his 7th inning role, according to manager Joe Girardi. Girardi will give more chances to Chad Green and Adam Warren.
Clippard, a 10-year veteran, is struggling during the 2016-17 season, as he owns a 5.24 ERA, just one save and a 42/19 K to BB ratio. He has given up three or more runs in three of his last 10 starts.
Green has a 1.80 ERA and 47 strikeouts so far this season, while Warren also has an ERA under 2.00 (1.96), along with 36 strikeouts.
Beyond Green and Warren's work in the seventh, the Yankees will continue to rely on Dellin Betances and Aroldis Chapman in the 8th and 9th innings.
