The New York Yankees have been ravaged by injuries to their starting rotation and Aaron Boone admitted Wednesday that he might use a version of the "opener" on occasion.

"I could see it being something we consider from time to time," Boone said. "I don't see it a lot, but yeah, I could see it coming into play on certain occasions.

"When we're healthy and right, obviously I don't see it much, but there's some days where you could see it."

The Yankees don't expect Luis Severino or CC Sabathia to be ready for Opening Day.
