Luis Severino dropped to 0-4 on Tuesday after allowing four runs -- three earned -- over six innings against the Orioles.

Mark Trumbo took Severino deep for a solo shot in the second inning and a two-run shot in the fifth. The young Yankees right-hander is not off to a very promising start this season, now with a 6.31 ERA and 1.64 WHIP in 25 2/3 innings, and his next outing will come against the rival Red Sox. He should be on the bench in fantasy leagues for now.

Alex Rodriguez will undergo an MRI on his right hamstring.

A-Rod pulled up lame while running to first base in the fifth inning Tuesday and manager Joe Girardi acknowledged after the game that the situation is "definitely worrisome." It sounds like a disabled list stint could be coming for the veteran slugger. Dustin Ackley replaced him in the Yankees' lineup on Tuesday night.

Alex Rodriguez was pulled from Tuesday's game against the Orioles with an apparent leg injury.

A-Rod appeared to tweak something in his right leg while running to first base in the top of the fifth inning and Dustin Ackley entered to hit for him in the top of the eighth. There should be an update after the game. This could be a big blow for the already-struggling Yanks.
May 3 - 9:31 PM

Aroldis Chapman is expected to make two appearances this week in the minors before joining the Yankees next Monday.

Chapman has been looking sharp in extended spring training games at the Yankees' complex in Tampa, Florida and he should roll through a pair of innings on the farm. Yankees manager Joe Girardi reiterated Tuesday that Chapman will immediately take over as the team's closer when he is activated May 9 from his domestic violence suspension. Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller will work as setup men in what promises to be a shutdown bullpen trio.

Yankees OF prospect Kendall Coleman jolted a pair of home runs Monday in a win for Low-A Charleston.

He drove in a career-high five runs as the RiverDogs cruised to a 7-2 victory over Delmarva. Coleman didn't have as much luck in the first game of Monday's doubleheader, going 0-for-3 in a 5-0 loss. The 20-year-old hadn't homered before Monday and is still hitting just .242 with 19 strikeouts in 62 at-bats. Coleman offers an interesting skill set but he has a long way to go.

Yankees RHP prospect Cale Coshow surrendered just one hit over six scoreless innings Monday for Double-A Trenton.

Akron came from behind to win 2-1, forcing Coshow to settle for another no-decision. Coshow remains winless despite an impressive 2.89 ERA. The 23-year-old has struggled with control at times, walking 12 batters in 28 innings this season. Opponents have hit .224 against him with 18 strikeouts in 98 at-bats. Coshow pitched out of the bullpen early in his career but has been used exclusively as a starter since joining Trenton late last season.

Alex Rodriguez homered, doubled and drove home four runs as the Yankees were outlasted by the Red Sox on Sunday night in Boston.

A-Rod blasted a two-run homer off David Price in the third inning then added on a two-run double his next time up in the fifth. The 40-year-old slugger has really picked up his offense in the past few weeks, and is now slashing .203/.286/.464 with five homers and 12 RBI on the season.
May 1 - 11:38 PM

Nathan Eovaldi struggled in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Sunday night, surrendering six runs on 10 hits in just five innings of work.

Eovaldi also issued three free passes while striking out three on the evening. The Red Sox scratched out a run in the first inning, rallied for three in the third and added on with a two-run homer from Travis Shaw in the fifth. The 26-year-old hurler has struggled mightily through his first five starts, compiling a 5.46 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 31/8 K/BB ratio across 29 2/3 innings. He'll look to put this one behind him and get back on track in a rematch against these Red Sox at home on Saturday.
May 1 - 11:38 PM

Didi Gregorius is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Sunday's matchup against the Red Sox.

Gregorius once again will take a seat against a tough opposing left-hander as manager Joe Girardi opts to play the matchups. Ronald Torreyes will start at shortstop for the Yankees and bat eighth on Sunday.
May 1 - 5:32 PM

Brian McCann is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

He'll take a seat in favor of Austin Romine, who will bat nine for the Bombers on Sunday night. McCann is off to a solid start at the plate this season, slashing .262/.351/.415 with three homers and seven RBI in his first 19 games.
May 1 - 5:30 PM

Carlos Beltran is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Sunday night's showdown against the Red Sox.

It's just a routine day of rest for the 39-year-old. Aaron Hicks will draw the start in his place and bat seventh against opposing left-hander David Price.
May 1 - 5:27 PM

Aaron Hicks (shoulder) grounded out as a pinch-hitter and remained in the game in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.

It was Hicks' first plate appearance since April 22, as he's been battling bursitis in his left shoulder. The shoulder issue probably isn't behind him, but Hicks could start seeing starts against lefties again.
May 1 - 8:09 AM

Michael Pineda couldn't go more than five innings in Saturday's loss against the rival Red Sox, but kept his squad in the game with only two runs allowed on five hits.

Pineda continues to be immensely hittable on the mound, now with 35 hits in 27 innings, but the inefficiency and lack of strikeouts really stood out on Saturday. He needed 106 pitches to span five innings, and although he entered the game with an attractive 27:5 K:BB, he both walked and struck out three. The 27-year-old had quality advanced metrics heading into the 2016 season, but it hasn’t worked out in his favor thus far, showing that strikeout-to-walk ratios are not always perfect indicators of future success. Being around the zone too much can have negative consequences. Pineda has a 6.33 ERA on the year and will get a rematch against the Red Sox in his next outing on Friday, May 6.
Apr 30 - 10:51 PM

Masahiro Tanaka was charged with two runs over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Friday.

Tanaka allowed just three hits while shutting down the Red Sox over the first six innings, but he unraveled in the seventh by giving up three hits, including a game-tying double to Jackie Bradley, Jr. He struck out five and walked none. Tanaka only has one win to his credit thus far, but he owns a 2.87 ERA through his first five starts and has allowed exactly two earned runs in all of them. He’ll face the Orioles on the road next time out.
Apr 29 - 10:13 PM

Alex Rodriguez socked a solo homer Friday against the Red Sox.

He’s up to four home runs on the season and 691 for his career. Rodriguez has five hits (including two doubles and two home runs) over his last three games, so at least he’s showing some signs of life. The 40-year-old is batting .194/.286/.419 overall.
