With Tyler Clippard's recent struggles and reliever Adam Warren on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation, the Yankees might increasingly do what they did in Wednesday night's 8-4 win over the Angels: Insert Chad Green in more high-leverage situations ahead of Dellin Betances and closer Aroldis Chapman.

NY Mets

Arguably nobody has been a more consistent starter for the Mets this season than right-hander Jacob deGrom, who will get the ball Saturday at AT&T Park in the second game of the three-game series. The Giants will counter with Johnny Cueto, who is winless in his last four starts.
