The Yankees play in Tampa for the second straight day Wednesday as they host the Cardinals at 1:05 p.m.
Now that Luis Severino is "highly unlikely" to be ready for Opening Day as he's shut down for two weeks with rotator cuff inflammation, Jonathan Loaisiga's Spring Training outings become more significant. Aaron Boone mentioned Loaisiga, who starts Wednesday, and Domingo German as options who could replace Severino in the Yankees' rotation to open the season. Aaron Judge will try to make it three consecutive games with a home run.
