LEADING OFF: Red Sox get rings, Puig gets new nickname

A look at what’s happening around the majors today:

BOSTON BASH

The Red Sox are set to receive their 2018 World Series rings ahead of their home opener at Fenway Park. Boston plans to unveil a championship banner, and ceremonies will include a flyover by four F-16 jets prior to the first pitch. The club will sport gold-trimmed hats and jerseys, as well. One member of last year’s team who won’t attend is Craig Kimbrel. The All-Star closer and current free agent declined an invitation.

The 2019 season hasn’t been quite so sparkling. Boston returns from a season-opening West Coast swing 3-8, and the starting pitching has been especially suspect. Chris Sale (0-2, 8.00 ERA) faces Toronto in the home opener. His fastball has averaged 90.7 mph over his first two outings, down from 95.4 mph last season.

Just one story of several here, for your dining and dancing pleasure.

Yanks ace Severino returning to N.Y. for MRI

HOUSTON—Yankees ace Luis Severino will be returning to New York on Monday night from Tampa, Florida, to get an MRI and be reevaluated by head team physician Dr. Chris Ahmad, manager Aaron Boone said.

The MRI and other testing will be conducted Tuesday.

Severino, who was shut down at the beginning of March due to rotator cuff inflammation in his right shoulder, isn’t experiencing pain; but he isn’t where he wants to be, and the team wants an examination to determine why he isn’t progressing as expected, Boone said ahead of the Yankees’ series opener in Houston.

Will the last member of the Yankees in a position to play please turn the light off on the way out?

Luis Severino Shut Down For Two Weeks Due To Shoulder Inflammation - MLB Trade Rumors

2:53pm: The MRI showed inflammation to Severino’s rotator cuff, MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch tweets. He’ll rest for at least two weeks while undergoing treatment, including injections and anti-inflammatories, before picking up a ball. That’ll likely knock Severino out for Opening Day, though it seems the broader prognosis is still generally optimistic.

Luis Severino Agrees to 4-Year Deal as Yankees Try to Lock Up Young Core

Severino forfeited what would have been his first season of free agency, in 2023: The deal includes a team option for $15 million that year or a $2.75 million buyout.

The contract also holds hints of players’ fears amid tense labor relations in the majors. Severino’s deal is front-loaded: He will earn $6 million in 2019 and $10 million in 2020, and then is to receive only modest raises to $10.25 million in 2021 and $11 million in 2022. In other words, he will earn $26.25 million of the $40 million guaranteed by the 2021 season.
