Nick Nelson to start Yankees’ series opener against Rays
The Yankees’ opener Friday night against the Tampa Bay Rays will feature an opener on the mound.
Nick Nelson will get the start at Yankee Stadium, followed by Michael King, manager Aaron Boone said Friday morning on MLB Network Radio.
Nelson has made three relief appearances for the Yankees this season, allowing four earned runs in four innings for a 9.00 ERA.
King hasn’t pitched since tossing six scoreless innings of relief, giving up just one hit, April 4 against the Blue Jays. The righty was optioned to the alternate site two days later to create a roster spot for infielder Rougned Odor.
