NEW YORK -- The Yankees’ Opening Day roster is set, with manager Aaron Boone saying that he believes the squad is “raring to go” for Thursday’s scheduled contest against the Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium.
“There's a hunger with these guys,” Boone said. “I’m really comfortable and excited about where they are in their mental frame of mind to put together a great season. We're playing for a lot, but also underneath all that, I think it's really important that our guys make sure they're having fun playing this game.”
Boone and general manager Brian Cashman had all but one of their decisions made before the team traveled to New York following the final game of Spring Training. Boone finalized the roster before Wednesday’s workout day at Yankee Stadium.
