After yet another year in which the franchise failed to get back to the World Series, the New York Yankees offseason has been a relative success. New York brought back the heart of the franchise in Aaron Judge and agreed to terms with a rotation center piece in Carlos Rodon. Outside of that, there are several glaring roster holes the team did not address.

One area that hasn't been a problem for the Yankees, outside of a rash of bad injury luck, is there bullpen. New York finished with the third-best bullpen ERA in baseball in 2022. But, they just lost an important piece of the puzzle.

Making matters worse, the Yankees lost this reliever to the Toronto Blue Jays.

Chad Green agreed to a two-year deal with Toronto worth $8.5 million. He also holds a 2024 conditional player option that "can be exercised if the team declines a three-year club option," according to MLB insider Mark Feinsand.

Green underwent Tommy John surgery early on in 2022, so he'll be out at least for the start of Toronto's season.

He is quite effective, however. Green owns a stellar 3.17 ERA throughout his career and strikes out 11.6 batters per nine innings.
