Mid-game X-Rays on Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka came back negative after he was evaluated following a sharp grounder that hit his right leg at the end of the sixth. With a 111.3 mph exit velocity, the ball off Yandy Diaz's bat was smoked before ricocheting to first baseman Luke Voit for the out. Although he had thrown 88 pitches, he came out after the inning-ending injury. Officially, Tanaka was diagnosed with a right shin bruise.

Didi Gregorius was originally going to play as a DH in an extended spring training game in Tampa on Monday, but he'll now play at SS. It's a sign he's progressing well in Tommy John rehab. Aaron Boone said it's "fair" to expect him back sometime in June.

Giancarlo Stanton has been facing live pitching in Tampa as he goes through rehab for his shoulder. Aaron Boone says he was hit in the knee yesterday, but checked out OK. He'll face more live pitching today, in hopes of starting a rehab assignment Monday with the High-A Tarpons.

James Paxton said this morning his knee felt good following Friday's bullpen session. He'll have another session Sunday, in which he'll focus on throwing inside fastballs (to righties). "That's the pitch I have to rely on my back side the most," Paxton said. Those pitches should really test his left leg. Paxton also told ESPN he's spoken recently with fellow Yankees lefty CC Sabathia about making adjustments to pitch around knee pain. Paxton will implement some of CC's suggestions. He's also likely going to wear a brace in games: "something I'll do until we get to a point where it needs to be to support that knee."

Starting left tackle Nate Solder had a cleanup procedure Thursday on his left ankle, per source. Solder will miss OTAs and minicamp. He IS expected to be ready for training camp though. Better to take care of it now than let it linger into the season.
