New York Yankees at Arizona Diamondbacks: Chad Green vs. Robbie Ray

The Yankees' rookie righty makes his major league debut as the Yanks play their first interleague game of the year.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight marks both the beginning of the Yankees' first West Coast swing of 2016 and their start of interleague play. The starting pitcher tonight will also be something new: Chad Green. Acquired in the Justin Wilson trade last December, Green got off to a fine start in Triple-A Scranton with a 1.22 ERA and 2.12 FIP over his first seven outings, striking out 36 batters. It will be a challenge facing the likes of Paul Goldschmidt in a major league park, but hopefully Green is up to the task.

First pitch will be at 9:40pm and you can catch the game on YES Network.
