Alden Gonzalez calls into to talk about all of this, plus his piece on Francisco Lindor possibly being trading, the excitement at Dodgers camp and the anxiety at Angels camp, and his thoughts on why the White Sox could be a lot of fun to watch this season.

Luis Severino pointed to an area in his forearm, near the elbow, as the one where he feels soreness, only after throwing his changeup. Severino: "(I) just worry about that one spot up there because my elbow, shoulder and my whole arm is pretty good. I've been throwing really hard, I feel like my fastball is running pretty good, so I'm not worried about a spot other than that one."

Aaron Boone said Luis Severino has been dealing with forearm discomfort, which started after Game 3 of the 2019 ALCS. Two MRIs and a CT scan came out clean. The team is hoping that anti-inflammatories will work to help with soreness. He's currently shut down from throwing and there's no timeline for his return.

Aaron Boone on Aaron Judge: "Threw again today, went well. I think he threw out a little further today; expect him to start his hitting program and ramp it up tomorrow. He'll be in the cage, probably hitting off the tee, soft toss, doing what he does; feel good about where he's at."

It's not a happy birthday for Luis Severino, who turned 26 today, but was shutdown by the Yankees due to right forearm discomfort and was treated with anti-inflammatories. GM Brian Cashman did not rule out that Severino may have to start the 2020 season on the injured list, though that is an unknown at this point.

Yankees shut down Severino; IL stint 'possible'

Yankees GM Brian Cashman said "it's possible" that Luis Severino could begin the season on the injured list after the right-hander was shut down due to forearm soreness.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Yankees GM Brian Cashman said that the last MRI for Luis Severino was in January. Severino had two MRIs and a CT scan after complaining of discomfort, and all tests have been negative. “It could be small and a timing issue or it could be significant,” said Cashman about Severino's forearm discomfort. “It's possible,” he answered when addressing if Severino may start the season on the IL.

Luis Severino has apparently been suffering from slight forearm discomfort since the playoffs last year. Went for testing and all has been okay, except a "loose body" (bone chip) near his elbow, which apparently is of no concern to the team. Was doing all his side work and pitching routine and felt fine, except he was not throwing his changeup. When he started throwing his changeup again, that led to the discomfort. Will be seen by Dr. Chris Ahmad tomorrow.

Boone on Aaron Judge's "cranky" right shoulder after throwing today: “When I buzzed him on it real quick, he was like ‘(I'm) game ready.' We'll still take it easy. I haven't gotten a report yet, but it sounds like that it went well and we'll start reintroducing him to full swinging and stuff here in the next couple of days.”

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Giancarlo Stanton wanted to "clarify" his 80-plus HR comment, and said: "The 80 HR comment wasn't to make it about me, the point I was trying to make is that if I was part of that team (2017 Astros) and got the home run record doing that, there's no way that would be upheld and not have asterisks or taken away. So neither should their accolades, is what I was getting at with that."

Gerrit Cole said he worked on his four pitches today during live BP, increasing the load on fastballs. Said he was happy with his slider, which he threw for the first time today. “I didn't throw a bad slider, and that's the first day I brought the slider out, so that was encouraging.”

Yankees top pitching prospect Deivi García will throw his first big league camp live BP tomorrow. García said he's really excited and that he's embracing the comparisons to Pedro Martínez. “I love it,” García told me. “It makes me want to work harder to one day be like Pedro.”
