    The Opening Day roster is solidifying, between the injuries and the quotes from Boone/Cashman, I think we basically know who's coming north in just under three weeks, assuming no more injuries.

    Sanchez
    Voit
    Gleyber
    Tulo
    Andujar
    Gardner
    Hicks
    Judge
    Stanton

    LeMahieu
    Wade
    Romine

    Bird, Clint to AAA to get regular ABs.

    Paxton
    Tanaka
    Happ
    Loaisiga
    German

    DL: Severino, CC, Montgomery.

    Cessa
    Kahnle
    Holder
    Green
    Ottavino
    Britton
    Betances
    Chapman

    Tarpley to AAA.

    I heard Boone say they try Green as an opener some of the times the lesser swingman such as German are in turn, while Sevy/CC are on DL. makes sense to me

    I didn’t see that but an opener for German and maybe Loaisiga does make sense, NY has so many strong relievers and German gave up a lot of first inning runs last year, although he wasn’t too much more effective after that either.

    Rethinking the back of the pitching staff a bit:

    Cessa and German are both pitching very well in Florida and are likely ahead of Loaisiga for the 4th/5th rotation spots to start the season. Since Mike King got a late start to spring training (he is throwing now and is expected to join Scranton around May 1), I think it makes sense to send Loaisiga down and keep him stretched out as the 6th man (until CC is back mid-April), and then Tarpley can take the final bullpen spot (8.2 3 0 0 1 6 so far this spring).

    Tanaka
    Paxton
    Happ
    Cessa
    German

    DL: Severino, CC, Montgomery.

    Tarpley
    Kahnle
    Holder
    Green
    Ottavino
    Britton
    Betances
    Chapman

    Loaisiga to AAA.

    OK, let's update this a bit. Betances and Hicks will start the season on the IL and even though Gio threw 80 pitches in a simulated game yesterday, they say he won't be ready for Opening Day.

    Sanchez
    Voit
    Gleyber
    Tulo
    Andujar
    Stanton
    Gardner
    Judge
    Bird

    LeMahieu
    Wade
    Romine

    Hicks and Didi on IL, Frazier to AAA.

    Tanaka
    Paxton
    Happ
    Cessa
    German

    IL: Severino, CC, Montgomery. Gio preparing in AAA, I guess.

    Loaisiga
    Tarpley
    Kahnle
    Holder
    Green
    Ottavino
    Britton
    Chapman

    Betances on IL.

    Maybe with the addition of Gio (which pushes Loaisiga to 9th SP currently) and Betances on the IL, NY goes with Loaisiga as the long man until someone comes back. They said yesterday they would like him to get around 100 innings this season, so not having him in the AAA rotation to start the year preserves his innings a bit too.

    No need to activate Gio until his turn comes up in rotation, right?
