Around the Empire: Yankees news - 8/3/15

Severino to debut Wednesday; A-Rod tells all; Moreno to the DL; Yankees taking a risk with the rotation.

New York Daily News | Mark Feinsand: Luis Severino will make his big league debut on Wednesday against the Boston Red Sox, and the club has confirmed that Masahiro Tanaka, Severino, and CC Sabathia will face the Red Sox in their three-game series.

New York Post | Steve Serby: In a very nice interview, Alex Rodriguez discusses how he came back from the dead, his daughters, his achievements, his team, and his desire to win another championship.

FOX Sports | AP: After one nice relief outing, Diego Moreno has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with elbow inflammation. I don't think anyone expected him to stick with the big league club long-term, but it's sad to see a guy come up, perform well, and then immediately get injured.

ESPN New York | Wallace Matthews: Because the Yankees did not pick up a starter at the deadline, they'll have to take a gamble with the crew they have already. Brian Cashman said they are all in with their young pitching depth, so they'll have to hope that everyone stays healthy, and that they also get contributions from Luis Severino, Adam Warren, and spot starters like Bryan Mitchell.
