    , Fla. (AP) — New York manager Aaron Boone sent Greg Bird
    back to the Yankees complex in Tampa on Thursday after the first baseman
    developed stiffness in the elbow hit by a pitch a day earlier.“He probably could
    have played,” Boone said. “It was me saying, ‘Go home.'”Bird took Wade Miley’s
    offering off his right elbow during the first inning of Wednesday’s loss to
    Houston but remained in the game. In the midst of a two-game spring road trip,
    the Yankees spent the night in the West Palm Beach area before playing St. Louis
    in Jupiter on Thursday.Bird hit 11 homers in 46 games during his 2015 debut
    season. Various injuries and ineffectiveness prevented Bird from playing more
    than 82 games in any year since then.Throughout the spring he’s battled Luke
    Voit for the starting first baseman job, hitting .333 with three homers in 51
    plate appearances. Voit has four homers while hitting .316 in Grapefruit League
    play.“I don’t know that anyone’s won or lost it,” Boone said. “Both guys are
    good players in my eyes. At a certain point we may be up against making a very
    difficult decision.”The Yankees will have more time than originally expected to
    make that decision. With center fielder Aaron Hicks expected to open the season
    on the injured list with a back injury, there’s room for both Bird and Voit on
    the opening day roster.“I’d say there’s a very good possibility,” Boone
    said.Back in

    , pitcher Luis Severino played catch on consecutive days for
    the first time since being shut down because of rotator cuff inflammation,
    throwing 50 times off flat ground.“It went well,” Boone said. “It felt even
    better because I think he was more comfortable now, second day playing catch,
    letting it go. But no pain, so another positive day for him.”Severino will not
    throw on Friday and Boone is uncertain as to when the Yankees’ ace will progress
    to throwing off a mound.The righty will begin the season on the injured list,
    with the Yankees asking him to complete a full spring training program before
    returning to the majors.“He’s moving, at
    least ,
    in the right direction now that he’s playing catch,” Boone said.New York also
    expects to get its first look at newly signed pitcher Gio Gonzalez in game
    action before leaving Florida on Sunday, but Boone isn’t certain whether it will
    be in a Grapefruit League or minor league game.“Right now I think we’re
    tentatively counting on him pitching Saturday somewhere and we’ll start kind of
    evaluating where he is,” Boone said.New York signed the 33-year-old lefty to a
    minor league contract earlier this week. In today’s links, everything is fine.
