Severino (elbow) landed on the 60-day injured list Tuesday. The move prevents Severino from returning in the first two months of the season, though he was never expected back that soon after undergoing Tommy John surgery in February of last year. General manager Brian Cashman previously gave him the somewhat vague timetable of "late summer," while Severino himself has said he expects to return in June or July. The move clears a spot on the Yankees' 40-man roster for the team to add Brett Gardner, who re-signed in a corresponding move.
Severino (elbow) expects to pitch off a mound soon and anticipates a return to major-league action in June or July, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. The Yankees previously mentioned late summer as their target for Severino's return from Tommy John surgery, a procedure he underwent back in February of 2020. Severino sounds slightly more optimistic about his timeline, though that's hardly uncommon for players to have a more positive outlook about their return dates than teams. Which timeline winds up being correct will have a large impact on his fantasy value, as a June return could see Severino make nearly 20 starts, while a late summer return could see him make less than 10. At this stage, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News notes that Severino is throwing from 90 feet and will increase his distance to 120 feet Tuesday, potentially setting him up for a return to mound work by the end of spring training.
Severino (elbow) has played catch from 120 feet and should advance to mound work within the next few weeks, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Severino continues to make progress as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery, a procedure he underwent in February of 2020. He appears to be still on track to return sometime late this summer, though the Yankees have yet to offer a more precise timeline.
Severino is on track to return from Tommy John surgery in late summer, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Severino underwent the procedure in February of 2020. If his recovery was on the fast end of the typical timeline, he could be pushing to return not long after Opening Day, but general manager Brian Cashman seemed to suggest he'd need a bit longer than that. "Late summer" is unfortunately somewhat of a vague time frame, but it sounds as though there's a real chance Severino doesn't wind up making much more than six or seven starts this season, which makes even a pitcher of his talents tough to hold onto in many formats.
Severino's (elbow) rehab is going well, and he could return to the majors in June or July, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Severino underwent Tommy John surgery in February, and he's received positive reports regarding his rehab so far. He's currently throwing off flat ground from 90 feet. There's been optimism that he could pitch at some point in 2021, and general manager Brian Cashman provided a clearer timetable for his return as the Yankees head into the offseason.
