Top Yankees News
Yankees' Matt Krook: Optioned to Triple-A
Krook was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.
Krook's contract was selected by the Yankees in November, but he was unable to secure a spot in the major-league bullpen to begin the regular season. Over six Grapefruit League appearances this spring, he posted a 3.75 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 12 innings. The southpaw hasn't yet made his big-league debut, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him do so at some point in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Oswald Peraza: Sent down Sunday
Peraza was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.
Peraza opened camp as the favorite to serve as the Yankees' starting shortstop, but the team made it clear that would be an open competition during spring training. Anthony Volpe and Oswaldo Cabrera were informed Sunday that they made the team's Opening Day roster, which put Peraza on the roster bubble. The 22-year-old hit .190 with a homer, nine runs and two stolen bases across 15 Grapefruit League games this year but will get consistent at-bats in the minors and should be one of the first names on the list of potential call-ups if the Yankees need assistance in the infield at some point during the regular season....

Yankees' Oswald Peraza: On roster bubble
The Yankees indicated Sunday that a decision has yet to be made on whether Peraza will be on the Opening Day roster, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Anthony Volpe and Oswaldo Cabrera were both informed they made the Opening Day roster Sunday, but Peraza's status remains in limbo. Peraza played in 18 games during his first taste of the big leagues last year and had an .833 OPS in 57 plate appearances, but he batted just .205 over 14 games during spring training. The 22-year-old would likely fill a bench role if on the MLB roster, so the Yankees could prioritize getting him consistent playing time in the minors.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Oswaldo Cabrera: Secures roster spot
Cabrera was informed by the Yankees on Sunday that he's made the Opening Day roster, Jack Curry of YES Network reports.
The 24-year-old had a .741 OPS in his first taste of the big leagues last season, and it's not a surprise he earned a roster spot after he posted a .333/.382/.608 slash line during spring training. Cabrera is poised to fill a super-utility role, though he could see more run in the outfield early on since Harrison Bader (oblique) is set to begin the season on the injured list.... See More ...

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Named Opening Day leadoff man
Manager Aaron Boone said Sunday in an interview with Jomboy Media's "Talkin' Yanks" podcast that LeMahieu will be the Yankees' Opening Day leadoff hitter.
Though LeMahieu isn't expected to be the primary starter at any one position, his ability to play either corner-infield spot as well as second base essentially guarantees him a near-everyday role while the Yankees rotate off days between him, Josh Donaldson, Gleyber Torres and Anthony Rizzo. LeMahieu's production at the plate has taken a step back the past two seasons, but he reported to spring training 100 percent healthy and has looked the part during Grapefruit League play. In 12 games this spring, LeMahieu has slashed .371/.421/.486 while striking out in only seven of his 38 plate appearances (18.4 percent). LeMahieu doesn't project to run much or hit for much power at this stage of his career, but he should be a strong source of runs and batting average if health prevails and he can stick as the Yankees' leadoff man for the bulk of the season....

Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Earns Opening Day roster spot
Volpe was informed by the Yankees on Sunday that he made the Opening Day roster, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
The 21-year-old top prospect entered spring training as a likely longshot to break camp with the big-league club given he has yet to make his MLB debut, but his .314/.417/.647 slash line in 17 spring games was apparently enough to sway the organization. With a roster spot now secure, Volpe is poised to open the season as New York's primary shortstop.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Nick Ramirez: Headed to minors camp
Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that Ramirez has been reassigned to minor-league camp, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.
Ramirez, who had been attending camp as a non-roster invitee, made a spirited bid for a spot in the Yankees' Opening Day bullpen after holding opposing hitters to a .188 average while pitching to a 4.15 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 11:3 K:BB in 8.2 innings during Grapefruit League play. He'll be in line for an assignment to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre when the minor-league season opens next weekend.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Jhony Brito: Could start third game of season
Manager Aaron Boone said Brito could start the Yankees' third game of the season next Sunday versus the Giants in New York, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
Boone didn't officially confirm that Brito would be part of the Opening Day rotation, but the 25-year-old righty appears to have all but clinched a starting role with all of Frankie Montas (shoulder), Carlos Rodon (forearm) and Luis Severino (lat) set to open the season on the injured list. Brito initially appeared in line to take the hill for the Yankees' fifth game of the season, but the team may be incentivized to move him up in the pitching schedule after he dazzled Sunday in his final Grapefruit League outing of the spring. Brito retired all 16 batters he faced in a 6-2 win over the Blue Jays, striking out three hitters while lowering his spring ERA to 2.08. If Brito ends up getting the starting nod for the Yankees' third game, Domingo German would presumably be pushed to the back of the team's pitching schedule.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Albert Abreu: Wins Opening Day spot
Manager Aaron Boone confirmed Sunday that Abreu will be included in the Yankees' Opening Day bullpen, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
Abreu turned in uneven results during Grapefruit League play, yielding six runs and striking out just four over 9.1 innings, but he issued just one walk and held opposing batters to a .222 average. Ultimately, that level of performance along with the fact that he doesn't have minor-league options remaining was enough for Abreu to secure his spot on the roster. He'll likely be ticketed for low-leverage work out of the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' James Norwood: Moves to minors camp
The Yankees reassigned Norwood to minor-league camp Sunday.
Norwood was solid enough in Grapefruit League play (2.70 ERA, 14:4 K:BB, .216 batting average against in 10 innings), but his less inspiring body of work at the MLB level along with his status as a non-40-man-roster player were enough to deny him a spot in the Yankees' Opening Day bullpen. He'll likely open the campaign at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Tyler Danish: Sent to minors camp
The Yankees reassigned Danish to minor-league camp Sunday.
The minor-league deal Danish inked with the Yankees over the winter includes an opt-out clause, but it's unclear if the right-hander immediately plans to hit the open market or if he'll stick around with the organization with the hope of eventually climbing to the big-league roster. Danish struggled mightily with the Yankees during Grapefruit League play but was more reliable, if unspectacular, in a multi-inning role for Boston in 2022, logging a 5.13 ERA and 1.29 WHIP across 40.1 frames.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Andres Chaparro: Hits another spring homer
Chaparro went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against Philadelphia.
Anthony Volpe has been the prospect getting the most buzz in Yankees camp, but Chaparro has looked great too, slashing .314/.400/.743 with a team-leading five homers and 12 RBI. Chaparro was optioned to minor-league camp in early March, and unlike Volpe, he has yet to play at Triple-A. However, given his strong performance in camp, it wouldn't be surprising if he reaches that level -- and potentially gets a look in the majors -- at some point this season.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Luis Severino: Could miss 3-to-4 starts
Severino (lat) said Sunday that he'll resume throwing when pain-free and could miss as few as three or four starts to open the season, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.
The 29-year-old's initial shutdown period is expected to be about a week, after which it should become clearer whether or not he'll require a lengthier absence. Severino dealt with a similar injury last year that sidelined him for two months, but the right-hander noted that the current injury isn't in the same location as the previous one.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Rodolfo Duran: Moved to minor-league camp
Duran was reassigned to minor-league camp by the Yankees on Saturday.
Duran was re-signed to a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training back in February. The 24-year-old backstop will all but assuredly begin the season with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and he will need to be added to the 40-man roster to receive a promotion in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Wilmer Difo: Reassigned to minor-league camp
Difo was reassigned to minor-league camp by the Yankees on Saturday.
With the infield depth available for the Yankees, it was a long shot for Difo to make the Opening Day roster. The infielder will likely head to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to begin the 2023 season.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Clarke Schmidt: Lines up to start second game
Schmidt is lined up to start the second game of the regular season, as Luis Severino is expected to hit the injured list with a low-grade lat strain, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
Schmidt may be the Yankees' sixth or seventh starter when everyone is healthy, but injuries to Frankie Montas (shoulder), Carlos Rodon (forearm) and now Severino mean he'll open the year firmly entrenched in the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Nestor Cortes: Superb in second spring start
Cortes tossed four scoreless innings against St. Louis in a Grapefruit League game Thursday, allowing two hits and no walks while striking out seven batters.
This was a far better outing for Cortes than his spring debut March 18, when he allowed five runs in 3.2 frames. The left-handed hurler worked his way up to 66 pitches (47 of which were strikes) in the outing Thursday after throwing 52 his previous time out. Cortes didn't participate in early Grapefruit League action due to a hamstring injury, but he appears to be back to full health and set to be in the rotation to begin the campaign. Though Cortes is by hierarchy the Yankees' No .3 starter, he'll likely start New York's fifth game of the season in order to have a few extra days to ramp up.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Jhony Brito: Could open as fifth starter
Brito may be needed as the Yankees' fifth starter to open the season with Luis Severino dealing with a low-grade lat strain, Brendan Kuty of The Athletic reports.
The Yankees likely didn't enter the spring with Brito in their Opening Day plans, but with Severino, Carlos Rodon (forearm) and Frankie Montas (shoulder) all bound for the injured list, they'll need to turn to their eighth starter right away. The Yankees have yet to lock in Brito as their choice, but he was the only candidate explicitly mentioned by manager Aaron Boone. Brito produced a 2.96 ERA in 26 outings (23 starts) in the upper minors last season, though that came with a modest 20.0 percent strikeout rate. He's given up five runs (three earned) on 12 hits in 7.2 innings this spring, striking out seven while walking none.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Luis Severino: Dealing with low-grade lat strain
Severino is dealing with a low-grade lat strain, likely sending him to the injured list to open the season, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
The Yankees are hopeful that the injury won't become a long-term problem, but its timing means that Severino is very likely to miss at least a couple starts. Per Brendan Kuty of The Athletic, Severino isn't expected to throw for at least five-to-seven days, so it may take some time to know just how long he's likely to be out. The righty also dealt with a lat strain last season, which kept him out from mid-July through late September despite originally carrying the same "low-grade" descriptor. Jhony Brito could step into the rotation in his place, with Clarke Schmidt and Domingo German already earning jobs due to injuries to Carlos Rodon (forearm) and Frankie Montas (shoulder)....

Yankees' Luis Severino: Won't make final spring start
Severino has been scratched from his scheduled Grapefruit League start Sunday, but the reason has not yet been disclosed, Max Goodman of NJ Advance Media reports.
Severino has struggled at times this spring, giving up 15 earned runs and six home runs across 15 innings. However, he's stated that he feels healthy and has struck out 23 batters -- including nine in four innings in his most recent outing -- so it's unclear if he's battling an injury. Severino has dealt with various arm issues over the past several seasons, so there's reason for New York to be cautious if he's feeling any sort of discomfort, but the team has not yet discussed the decision to pull him from what was scheduled to be his final appearance of the spring. As such, there's no indication yet as to whether Severino will need to miss any starts to begin the campaign.... See More ... See Less
