Do the New York Yankees wish they had Greene back yet?
Through two starts, Greene has struck out more batters, eight, than he has allowed hits, seven. In 16 innings, he has also only walked one batter and allowed just one unearned run. His WHIP is 0.50, and he is already 2-0.
The zero ERA is great, but fantasy owners would like to see more strikeouts from Greene before claiming him on the waiver wire. It’s possible they could come because Greene did average 9.3 K/9 last season in his 78 2/3 innings with the Yankees.
If owners need help at pitching this early, they can at least ride out this hot streak Greene is on.
