London calling for Red Sox

Yankees Greg Bird watches an RBI single

Details for the London matches still need to be "ironed out", Bloomberg reports, but the Yankees and Red Sox are near to an agreement. That all but ensures he'll start the season on the disabled list, Aaron Boone said. "So, if that's true, maybe I'm going to London".

The games are expected to be played at London Stadium, which opened for the 2012 Summer Olympics and has since been converted to the home of the Premier League's West Ham United. Because it originally was built for a 400-meter track, it is wider than other large stadiums in the London area and can best accommodate the dimensions of a baseball field.

"It's a natural fit, especially for the Red Sox, [who are] owned by Fenway Sports Group that also owns Liverpool FC".

Major League Baseball games set for 2018-2021 in Asia, London, and Mexico were previously announced as part of the newest five-year collective bargaining agreement, signifying the sport's intent to make a more aggressive worldwide push.

It's worth noting that major-league players never seem super jazzed about disrupting their routines to play overseas and that a mid-season series could bug them even more, but the option to play games abroad is written into the collective bargaining agreement, so they'll just have to deal with it. "So, we haven't. I don't think we've totally closed the door on that, but I would say it's very unlikely".

The MLB, meanwhile, has held games in Japan, Australia and Mexico, but has yet to venture to London. The Minnesota Twins and Cleveland Indians will play an April series at San Juan's Hiram Bithorn Stadium, while the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers are already scheduled to play a Monterrey series in May. In seven games, Gomez had gone 1-1 with a 10.80 ERA.

Turner was struck by a pitch from Oakland right-hander Kendall Graveman in the first inning Monday night. There had been an outside chance that the outfielder, out since suffering the oblique strain March 2, might be ready for the season opener March 29 in Toronto, but that possibility has all but been eliminated. Work groups don't necessarily lead to season-opening assignments, though Florial did finish up 2017 with 19 games at Tampa.
