General manager Brian Cashman said Sunday that Severino (lat) won't be ready to return from the 60-day injured list until after the All-Star break, Jim Bowden of The Athletic reports. Since he's been sidelined all season, Severino is eligible for reinstatement from the IL in late May, but there's been little evidence to date suggesting that the right-hander was trending toward returning at that time. Instead, the 25-year-old was more realistically targeting an activation in early July, but Cashman's comments suggest that timeline has been pushed back even further. Severino remains in the midst of a six-week shutdown program after being diagnosed April 9 with a Grade 2 lat strain following an unsuccessful long-toss session. Even if he hits no further snags in his rehab, he won't be ready to throw again until late May and will likely require a multi-start rehab assignment before coming off the IL.
Severino (lat) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday. This is simply procedural, as Severino, who has been sidelined all season, is still about a month away from resuming baseball activities. In a corresponding move, the Yankees signed Cameron Maybin to a major-league contract and added him to their active roster.
Severino's Grade 2 lat strain isn't a setback but has been around since the day he strained his shoulder, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports. Severino says that both injuries occurred at the same time, but only the shoulder issue was picked up in his first MRI. The lack of a setback is at least mildly encouraging but doesn't change his overall timeline. He's still at least five weeks from taking part in baseball activities and will then have to build his arm strength back up before returning to game action.
Severino (shoulder) will head to New York for an MRI on Tuesday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports. Severino had been throwing long toss but didn't feel right during his most recent session. The pitcher reportedly hasn't felt any increased pain, but he and the team are concerned why the shoulder hasn't progressed to the point where he can get back on the mound. The extent of the setback should become clear once the results of the MRI are known.
The Yankees officially placed Severino (shoulder) on the 10-day injured list Thursday. Severino is one of six Yankees who will open the season on the IL as the team set its roster ahead of Thursday's opener against the Orioles. The right-hander is currently throwing off flat ground at this stage of his recovery from right shoulder inflammation and isn't expected to make his season debut until sometime in May.
