Yankees pitcher Shane Greene (2-0, 1.32 ERA) opens the New York-Texas series on Monday, headlining the Yankees' injury-depleted pitching rotation. Greene is one of the few healthy arms New York still has after sidelining injuries to Masahiro Tanaka, CC Sabathia, Ivan Nova and Michael Pineda.
"Any time guys go down to injury, it gives other guys opportunity," Yankees star Derek Jeter told MLB.com, via the Associated Press. "When you have those opportunities, you need to make the most of it. (Greene has) done that. He's come out and thrown strikes and put us in a position to win every time he's pitched."
Greene smoothly transitioned from relief pitcher to the Yankees' starting rotation, giving up just two runs in his last two starts. The right-hander kept Baltimore scoreless Sunday in New York's 3-0 win, allowing just four hits and striking out nine batters.
"We were really excited about him in spring training and what he could possibly do for us," Yankees manager Joe Girardi told the Associated Press. "We felt that he could help us at some point this year, and the time is now."
Texas, meanwhile, is looking to snap out of their rut. They've lost nine of their last 10 games, including two straight, and will send pitcher Miles Mikolas (0-2, 10.05) to the mound to oppose Greene.
Mikolas gave up four runs in Saturdays' 5-2 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers, who took Mikolas for nine hits as he filled in for injured starters Derek Holland, Matt Harrison and Martin Perez.
