The Yankees' biggest worry is Luis Severino

Luis Severino dropped the ball, literally, against the Orioles and fell to 0-4 with a 6.31 ERA on the season as the Yankees lost their sixth straight.

In the fifth inning, Alex Rodriguez hurt his right hamstring, Yankees manager Joe Girardi confirmed. A-Rod will go for an MRI on Tuesday and then the Yankees will then determine if he will go on the DL.

Here are some characteristics Carmelo Anthony's looking for in a coach: "Being able to hold guys accountable, but also having a relationship with the player. Kind of seeing things from a players' perspective as well as a coach's perspective," Anthony said in an interview with Complex.com. "I think if you can build that camaraderie between a coach and a player, I think you're onto something."

Carmelo Anthony explains why he'd like to be kept in the loop on the Knicks' coaching search: "You gotta think about it, this is gonna be a long-term journey of playing and you consider me being part of that plan then I would want to know what's going on," he told Complex.com last week. As of last Thursday, Anthony hadn't spoken to team president Phil Jackson about the coaching search.

Another disappointing start for the Yankees Luis Severino. Severino, who is supposed to be the future ace, went six innings, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits against the Orioles Tuesday. Severino gave up two homers to Mark Trumbo and made two errors on flips at first base. Severino, just 22, has a 6.31 ERA after five starts. The Yankees may consider sending him to Triple-A to try to get right.

Phil Jackson just tweeted a photo of a Thai restaurant in Sioux City, Iowa. Hopefully, this is where the Knicks' president is interviewing candidates for the club's coaching vacancy.

Carmelo Anthony reiterated that he'd like to see the Knicks speak to several available candidates before they hire their next head coach. Phil Jackson has spoken to Luke Walton and David Blatt about the opening. Interim coach Kurt Rambis remains a strong candidate. Other than that, it is unclear who Jackson has talked to. "I just want to see the proper procedure gone through, the proper process," Anthony said in an interview with Complex.com. "We give everybody a shot to come in and say what they have to say and see if you like that person or not."

On a fifth inning groundout, Alex Rodriguez pulled up before first base. He looked as if he grabbed his hamstring. A-Rod walked off and slowly jogged off the field. It will be interesting to see if he continues in this game. Rodriguez missed two games last week because of an oblique injury.

Yankees starter Luis Severino has struggled on the mound so far in his second season. On Tuesday, so far, he has struggled at first. For the second time in four innings, he has dropped a flip at first base. Here, in the fourth, it has cost him a run. He is now down 2-1 to the Orioles.
