Yankees Notebook: Jameson Taillon to start against Blue Jays, Loaisiga closer to regular season return

The right-hander, who went on the injured list with a partially torn tendon in his right ankle Sept. 9, is expected to start next week in the series against the Blue Jays.

Jonathan Loaisiga was playing long toss on the field at Fenway before Friday night’s series opener against the Red Sox.

The right-hander is in a race to return from the right shoulder strain that put him on the injured list Sept. 5 in time to help bolster the Bombers bullpen.

While Boone was picky about getting Severino into the right situation Tuesday, he hopes to ease him into bigger spots with the Yankees’ season on the line.

Most experts at the trade deadline expected Anthony Rizzo to be here this weekend — except they figured he would be playing on the other side for the Red Sox.

He was Boston’s top target to upgrade at first base, and they had to fall back to Kyle Schwarber, who never played the position.
