Around the Empire: Yankees news - 4/9/19

Severino going for another MRI; Dallas Keuchel anyone?; Frazier earning his keep; CC eyes weekend return; Tyler Austin hits the Bay

MLB: Houston Astros at Detroit Tigers Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

MLB.com | Alyson Footer: After throwing from 130 feet a few days ago, Luis Severino told the Yankees he was still experiencing discomfort in his injured right shoulder. Manager Aaron Boone downplayed the injury yesterday, but Sevy is headed back to New York for an MRI. This is not good, folks.

MLB.com | Mark Feinsand: Since there’s still no timetable for Severino’s return, it might make sense for the Yankees to make a play for another pitcher. Dallas Keuchel remains unsigned, and although the fill-in starters have been good so far, it might not hurt to bring the 2015 AL Cy Young in to round out the rotation.

NJ.com | Randy Miller: During the offseason, Clint Frazier made it known he had eyes for the Yankees’ left field job. Not even a full month into the season, Frazier has the job, but now he has to keep it. With a few more series like the one he had in Baltimore, he might just man left field for many years to come.

New York Post | George A. King III: Despite the bad Luis Severino news, we did confirm some good news regarding CC Sabathia.

Finally, a former-Yankee was on the move yesterday. Tyler Austin is now a member of the San Francisco Giants. Here’s to having him and Joe Kelly in the same division again.
