Yankees manager Aaron Boone was mute when asked about the status of Luis Severino following his MRI after suffering shoulder tightness that saw him scratched from his rehab start with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

“I don’t want to go into it but we’ll see where we are tonight," Boone said, adding that he didn't want to get into details until Severino saw the Yankees' team doctor.

"He had his MRI today so we’ll get a good feel of that tonight.”

It was sort of an ominous answer from Boone considering he's been quick to share MRI results in the past. The Yankees, though, clearly want to check again with trainers and doctors before anything is made public.

Severino's return was something the Yanks were hoping would come before the regular season came to a close, though this setback doesn't help matters out. There's still time, but the team obviously doesn't want to force him back out there before he's 100 percent ready.

Here are some other injury updates from Boone, more on the positive side:

Aroldis Chapman (elbow)

The Yanks closer is "doing well," according to Boone.

"He's throwing a bullpen today. If that goes well, he could potentially be back by the middle of the week."

New York will hope that return means some more control from the veteran closer, as he went on the IL during a period of erratic throwing and lack of results.

Corey Kluber (shoulder)

Kluber will continue his rehab stint as he is set for another rehab start, so that's good news to hear about the veteran right-hander who could be back in the rotation soon if all holds up.

Gleyber Torres (thumb)

Torres might be "improving" but he isn't close to a return yet. He still needs his swings.

"Not yet to where he can swing a bat – we haven’t put a bat in his hands yet because again, we want to get all the pain out of there," Boone said.

Gio Urshela (hamstring)

Since his setback, Urshela has been doing well while running, while baseball activities could come Tuesday.

"Gio’s doing really well. Ran today at about 80 percent. So likely tomorrow we’ll probably do some hitting and ground balls," Boone said.
