Joel Sherman hears the Red Sox would likely be the home team for the two games, which means the Yankees won't lose two home gates.

"I don't think so at this point", Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Monday. "So, if that's true, maybe I'm going to London".

Baseball officials have long hoped for games on London and settled past year on Olympic Stadium, which is in its second season as home of West Ham of the Premier League. June is the only time the building is available for baseball.

A Marjory Stoneman Douglas student found Carotti asleep outside the 1200 building where 17 people were killed on February 14. Stricker has been released from the Juvenile Assessment Center and is scheduled to appear at a court hearing on April 23.

"It's a natural fit, especially for the Red Sox, [who are] owned by Fenway Sports Group that also owns Liverpool FC".

An announcement is expected to be made within the next two months. The games would take place on those two dates due to the stadium hosting Premier League games before and then needing to be prepared for track and field after the dates. MLB matches have previously been played in Mexico and Japan, nations that have a baseball culture, but the London series would reach a new audience.

Baseball opened its season at Monterrey in 1999 (Colorado vs. San Diego); the Tokyo Dome in 2000 (Chicago Cubs-New York Mets), 2004 (Tampa Bay-Yankees), 2008 (Boston-Oakland) and 2012 (Seattle-Oakland); and at Sydney, Australia in 2014 (Los Angeles Dodgers-Arizona). The Yankees and Red Sox have each participated in an overseas trip before, with the NY facing Tampa for two games at the Tokyo Dome in 2004 and Boston meeting Oakland at the same venue four years later. He was quickly visited by a trainer and replaced by Donovan Solano. There had been an outside chance that the outfielder, out since suffering the oblique strain March 2, might be ready for the season opener March 29 in Toronto, but that possibility has all but been eliminated.
