More bad injury news for the Yankees? Sounds about right.
New York is dealing with an unthinkable amount of injuries to start the year. To name a few, Luis Severino, Giancarlo Stanton, Miguel Andujar, Aaron Hicks, CC Sabathia, Troy Tulowitzki, Didi Gregorius and Dellin Betances are all on the shelf.
And now, Yankees fans aren't going to be happy to hear the latest update on Severino.
Luis Severino going to NY for tests, Boone says. #Yankees— Brendan Kuty (@BrendanKutyNJ) April 8, 2019
According to Boone's update, the right-hander didn't feel comfortable the last time he played long toss in Tampa. He'll undergo an MRI to see if anything else is wrong with his shoulder.

Severino was dealing with rotator cuff inflammation and had yet to throw from a mound since being diagnosed with the injury.
Perhaps the only good news to come out of this is that Severino wasn't feeling more pain and instead just "didn't feel right."
Luis Severino is heading back to NYC for more testing on his shoulder. Boone said that there is not increased pain... however he still does not feel right. Has not thrown from a mound since going on IL #yankees— Meredith Marakovits (@M_Marakovits) April 8, 2019
The Yankees badly need an injury update to go their way after the unforeseen has happened already in the young season.
As for their upcoming opponents, outside of the Astros and Red Sox, the Bombers will have pretty favorable matchups against the White Sox, Royals, Angels and Giants to close out the month.
