    Around the Empire: Yankees news

    WFAN | Ryan Chichester: The fifth edition of the World Baseball Classic is set to get underway in just over a month, but one prominent member of the Yankees will not be participating. Luis Severino is eligible to play for the Dominican Republic, however Brian Cashman will not permit him to pitch for his home country. As part of the joint MLB and MLBPA agreement to run the tournament, MLB teams have the final say on whether to release their players to their national teams. While it's understandable that the Yankees want to be cautious with Severino's health given his recent serious injuries, it's another example of disagreement between team and pitcher over the last few seasons.

    Yankees Mailbag: The infield shuffle and Florial's options

    Assuming Hicks is the starter in left field Florial would be up there with Oswaldo Cabrera for backing him up (and Florial would likely be entrusted with some spot starts in center as well, whereas Cabrera wouldn't). If Cabrera wins out the starting left fielder job, then it becomes more complicated. A Hicks trade is highly unlikely at this point, pushing him down to the fourth outfielder role, and then Florial's spot becomes a bit redundant.
