  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Seven scoreless in no-decision

    Severino struck out five in seven shutout innings while allowing eight hits and hitting two batters in a 5-0 loss Sunday against the White Sox. He did not factor into the decision.

    Despite allowing 10 baserunners, Severino held the White Sox scoreless by getting out of a number of jams, including loading the bases with no outs in the fifth. It was his longest outing since 2018 and the fourth consecutive start where he's thrown more than 90 pitches. In May, he's allowed three earned runs or fewer in each start and has compiled a 2.78 ERA with a 24:5 K:BB in 22.2 innings. He'll likely make one more start before the end of the month, this weekend in Tampa Bay.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Dominant versus Orioles

    Severino (3-0) earned the win Monday after tossing six innings, surrendering one run on one hit and two walks while striking out seven against the Orioles.

    The only blemish on Severino's line came in the bottom of the fourth frame, when Anthony Santander took him deep for a solo shot. He registered his first quality start of the season and has now won both times he's taken the mound against Baltimore this year. After registering 12 strikeouts over 16 innings his prior three starts, Severino now has 15 punchouts across 10.2 frames in his last two outings. Overall, the 28-year-old owns a 3.63 ERA and 1.18 WHIP with 38 strikeouts over 34.2 innings in 2022.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Escapes with no-decision Tuesday

    Severino didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays, giving up three runs on five hits and two walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out eight.

    Things looked bad for the right-hander when Toronto grabbed a 3-0 lead by the top of the second inning, but Severino was able to settle down and keep the game close before exiting after 97 pitches (61 strikes). The eight whiffs were a season high for the 28-year-old, but he's worked past the fifth inning only once in six starts and is still looking for his first quality start of the campaign. Severino will carry a 4.08 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 31:9 K:BB through 28.2 frames into his next outing.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Coughs up four runs

    Severino yielded four runs (three earned) on seven hits and a walk over five innings in Sunday's win over the Royals. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.

    Severino began the game with a pair of scoreless innings before Michael Taylor's leadoff home run to begin the third. The Royals would plate three runs in the inning followed by another in the fourth. Severino is still 2-0 on the year despite allowing eight runs (seven earned) over his last two outings. He'll carry a 3.75 ERA into his projected home outing next weekend against the Rangers.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Starts strong in win

    Severino (2-0) earned the win after striking out five in six innings while allowing four runs on three hits and two walks in a 12-8 victory Tuesday over Baltimore.

    Severino efficiently retired the first 14 batters he faced and didn't allow a hit through the first five innings, needing just 62 pitches. After retiring the first batter in the sixth, he allowed a single, a walk and a three-run homer to cut the Yankees' lead in half. Following a leadoff double in the seventh, he was replaced. It was the first time since 2018 that he pitched six innings in a game. The Yankees have won all four of Severino's starts this year as he's compiled a 3.32 ERA and 19 strikeouts in 19 innings.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Strikes out three in no-decision

    Severino did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing one run on seven hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings against the Tigers.

    The three strikeouts and nine baserunners don't look great, but Severino had 11 swinging strikes on 88 pitches and now sits with a 2.08 ERA through three starts this season. Perhaps most importantly, Severino's four-seam fastball velocity is back up north of 97 mph. He's throwing his slider far less than he used to, scaling back its usage in favor of more changeups and cutters.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Five scoreless innings

    Severino (1-0) struck out six in five shutout innings, allowing two hits and two walks to pick up the victory in a 3-0 win Thursday against Toronto.

    Severino retired 11 of the last 12 batters he faced after pitching around trouble in the first and second innings. The 83 pitches were his most in an appearance since 2018. After missing the majority of the last three seasons, Thursday's start was quite promising for the two-time All-Star. His next start will likely be Wednesday in Detroit.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Goes three frames in first start

    Severino did not factor in the decision against Boston on Saturday, completing three innings and allowing two runs on five hits and no walks while striking out five on 65 pitches.

    Yankees manager Aaron Bone indicated prior to the game that he was hopeful Severino would be able to throw 65-70 pitches after experiencing arm soreness during spring training, and the right-hander hit the lower end of that range in his first regular-season start since 2019. He managed to hold the Red Sox to two runs despite giving up three extra-base hits, with the big blow against him being a two-run homer off the bat of Alex Verdugo in the second inning. Despite the so-so final pitching line, it was a promising performance by the 28-year-old highlighted by five strikeouts. Severino's second turn on the mound will likely come on the road versus Toronto next week.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Likely capped around 65-70 pitches

    Manager Aaron Boone is hopeful that Severino will be able to throw 65-70 pitches during Saturday's start against the Yankees, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    Severino was delayed in spring training due to arm soreness, and he likely won't be able to handle his full workload during his first start of the regular season. In spite of his earlier issue, he checked out fine at the end of camp and should be able to increase his pitch count following Saturday's outing.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Checks out fine after spring outing

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone confirmed Severino (arm) is "good" following a four-inning start in Saturday's 10-0 win over Atlanta, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    Severino was initially set to make his third start of the Grapefruit League slate Wednesday, but the Yankees instead had him throw a bullpen session after he dealt with arm soreness. Fortunately, Severino came out of the throwing session fine and returned to the mound Saturday with his best outing of the spring, as he limited Atlanta to no runs on one hit and no walks while striking out three in the 57-pitch appearance. The outing was Severino's final tuneup of the spring, with Boone indicating that the right-hander will take the hill for the Yankees' second game of the regular season next Saturday at home versus the Red Sox. Expect him to be capped at around 75 or 80 pitches in that start.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Confirmed for Saturday's start

    Severino (arm) will start Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers and expects to throw about 60 pitches, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

    Severino has recently been slowed by arm soreness, but he had no issues during Wednesday's bullpen session and is poised to return to game action. The 28-year-old was previously expected to throw about 40 pitches, but the increased workload Saturday is a good sign for his potential availability for Opening Day, barring any further issues.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: On track to pitch Saturday

    Severino (arm) reported no issues following his bullpen session Wednesday and is expected to start Saturday's Grapefruit League game against Atlanta, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    Given the multiple arm-related injuries and setbacks Severino has experienced over the last few seasons, fantasy managers were rightful to have some anxiety when he reported arm soreness earlier in the week. At least for the time being, Severino investors can breathe easy, as he wasn't shut down from throwing and felt fine physically coming out of Wednesday's mound session. Provided Severino is able to start Saturday as expected, he'll be only slightly behind in his throwing program, and the expectation remains that he'll be part of the Yankees' season-opening rotation. However, because Severino said he expects to throw just 40 pitches Saturday in his final outing of the spring, he could be capped at around 60-to-75 pitches when his first turn in the rotation comes up during the regular season.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Slowed by sore arm

    Severino (arm) will throw a bullpen session session Wednesday instead of making his scheduled Grapefruit League start, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Arm troubles are always worrisome for a pitcher, especially one like Severino who's had his share of them already. This particular problem doesn't look like too much of an issue yet, as Severino will still throw in some capacity and is scheduled for a Grapefruit League appearance Saturday against Atlanta, but any setbacks could send him to the injured list to open the season.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Suffers control issues Friday

    Severino tossed 1.2 innings in a Grapefruit League game against the Phillies on Friday, allowing three runs on four hits and four walks. He did not strike out any batters.

    Severino struggled mightily to get the ball over the plate in his second spring outing, throwing only 22 of 49 pitches for strikes and issuing four free passes. When he avoided throwing balls, the right-hander was hit relatively hard, yielding two doubles among his four hits allowed. Severino is penciled in to fill a rotation spot for the Yankees this season, but he's struggled in both of his spring outings thus far, allowing a total of seven earned runs, eight hits and five walks over 3.2 innings while notching only one punchout.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Struggles in first spring outing

    Severino pitched two innings in the Yankees' Grapefruit League loss to Detroit on Sunday, allowing four runs on four hits and one walk while striking out one.

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone recently proclaimed Severino to be the "most ready" pitcher in camp for the team this spring, but the right-hander appeared rusty in his first Grapefruit League outing of 2022. He allowed a pair of runs in the first inning and served up a long ball to Robbie Grossman for two more runs in the second. Despite the rough start, it was promising to see Severino on the mound after he was limited to just six relief innings after completing his recovery from Tommy John surgery last season. He figures to slot into the middle of New York's rotation and would be a valuable fantasy asset if he's able to recover the form that led to a 3.39 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 220:46 K:BB across 191.1 innings in his last healthy campaign, but there is plenty of risk given the fact that he's made only seven regular-season appearances over the past two seasons.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: First healthy spring since 2018

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Severino threw two innings of live batting practice Tuesday and is probably the "most ready" pitcher in big-league camp for the upcoming season, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    Boone's comments are certainly eyebrow-raising, given that Severino hasn't been completely healthy for a spring training since 2018 and has made just seven combined regular-season appearances at the big-league level across the past three year due to lat and shoulder injuries in addition to his February 2020 Tommy John surgery. While Severino looks like he'll be part of the Opening Day rotation, the Yankees could still look to monitor his workloads carefully to some degree in 2022, given his light innings counts in recent years. That being said, if Severino is anywhere close to the pitcher he was during his last healthy season in 2018, he and ace Gerrit Cole would form one of the best top-of-the-rotation duos in the American League. Expect Severino's average draft position to continue climbing if he remains healthy and continues to draw raves from the coaching staff and reporters during his throwing sessions and Grapefruit League outings.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Should be ready for spring training

    Severino said Thursday that he expects to be ready to handle a starting pitcher's workload to begin spring training, Andy Martino of SNY.tv reports.

    Severino missed most of the 2021 campaign due to elbow, shoulder and groin issues, but he returned to game action in late September and struck out eight in six scoreless frames across four relief appearances. The right-hander recorded 30-plus starts in 2017 and 2018 and appears to be ready to rejoin the Yankees' rotation ahead of the 2022 season.
