Here are some notable nuggets that happened during Thursday’s Yankees spring training action:

With the Yankees looking to occasionally field Aroldis Chapman outside the ninth inning, Jonathan Loaisiga expects some closing chances this season. He threw a scoreless inning against Detroit.
The Yankees have been waiting for Estevan Florial’s racquet to develop for years. The 24-year-old defensive genius played well in right field but stayed unbeaten in three at-bats and is 0-8 this spring, making it even less likely to earn a place in the squad.
Roger Clemens was there to watch his son Kody, a Tigers minor league third baseman. And ahead of Clemens in Detroit’s lineup was Daz Cameron, Mike Cameron’s son, who has spent parts of the last two major seasons with the Tigers as a fullback.
Luis Severino will make his second Grapefruit League start when the Yankees visit the Phillies at BayCare Ballpark at 1:05 p.m
