Nick Quaglia gives you today's news and notes plus the rescheduled date for tonight's Red Sox vs Yankees rain out.
At almost this exact time last season, I talked about how Luis Severino needed to widen the velocity gap between his fastball and at least one of his secondary pitches. And believe it or not, he actually has done just that — he softened the velocity on his slider last season, and then he’s done so again this year.

He is one of, if not the, largest players in the game right now, and we are blessed to be able to watch him ply his craft in the big leagues.
