The New York Yankees have named Masahiro Tanaka their starter on Opening Day.

Tanaka will face the Baltimore Orioles on March 28 with Luis Severino sidelined by shoulder trouble.

Severino was scratched from his first planned start of spring training Tuesday after feeling discomfort after throwing his first slider in a pregame bullpen session.

James Paxton will start the second game and J.A. Happ, both left-handers, will pitch the third game against the Orioles.
