Yankees manager Aaron Boone provided injury updates for a multitude of his players on Sunday before their win over the Tampa Bay Rays, including what Clark Schmidt has been up to.

Boone said the young right-hander is going for a second opinion on his common flexor tendon strain.

"He still is having a little bit discomfort on that interior side," Boone said.

The Yankees thought he'd be in a throwing program weeks ago, but that never came to be.

Here's who else Boone touched on:

Luke Voit

Following his surgery to repair a partially torn meniscus, Voit is rehabbing in New York and Boone said he's doing well.

"Tomorrow will be two weeks post-operation. He’s doing really well," he said. "He’s not scheduled to start baseball activities for at least another week. It’s gone as expected and well these couple of weeks in.”

Luis Severino

Sevy continues to throw bullpens, and he's been throwing sliders along with his fastballs recently. His timeline is still the summer at the moment as the Yanks continue to progress him conservatively following his Tommy John surgery.

Zack Britton

Britton has begun his throwing program, and since he's on the 60-day IL, Boone knows he can slow play Britton to make sure everything is OK with the veteran left-hander.

"Zack Britton did start his throwing program last week," Boone said. "The day we left I believe was his second day playing catch and it was going well. Zack’s doing well. The biggest thing with that operation that he had was getting the swelling out of there, making sure the incision was healing up properly, getting his range of motion back which he has. Now it’s starting to amp up."

Miguel Andujar

Andujar could move to live swings soon as he's been hitting off a tee and doing soft toss in the cage. That could come in another week.
