Didi Gregorius just told me that he expects to start throwing next week. Said he feels "no relief" that his injured shoulder does not need surgery since his only goal was to be in the Yankees starting lineup on Opening Day.

This is the fourth straight season in which the New York Knicks failed to make the postseason. Dating back to the 2000-01 season, the Knicks have won one playoff series, tied with the Pelicans for the fewest by any franchise. New York's .418 win percentage in that span ranks third-worst in the NBA, ahead of only the Timberwolves and Hornets.

Aaron Judge is the Yankees starting right fielder, Joe Girardi announced today in Tampa. The 6-foot-7, 285-pound Judge had the offseason backing of owner Hal Steinbrenner and enters Thursday afternoon with a .975 OPS in 58 at-bats. Aaron Hicks will be the team's fourth outfielder.

The Yankees believe Luis Severino can be a top of the rotation guy, which is why the competition was always weighted his way for the 4th spot in the rotation. He has won that job, Joe Girardi said in Tampa today. The fifth starter will either be Bryan Mitchell or Jordan Montgomery.
