  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Two scoreless frames in return

    Severino pitched two scoreless innings against the Rangers on Tuesday, allowing two hits and striking out two.

    In his first major-league game action since 2019, Severino gave up a double and a single but no runs while covering the final two frames of a New York victory. The right-hander registered five swinging strikes among his 30 pitches and averaged 94 mph on his fastball, per Lindsey Adler of The Athletic. The velocity was a few ticks below his norm prior to undergoing Tommy John surgery, but that isn't necessarily a concern considering Severino's long layoff. He's expected to continue working out of the bullpen for the remainder of the campaign as he gets re-acquainted with pitching to big-league hitters.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Ready for 2021 debut

    The Yankees reinstated Severino (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list Monday.

    Severino's next appearance for the Yankees will be his first since the 2019 postseason, after he missed nearly all of the subsequent two seasons while recovering from Tommy John surgery. In recent months, his season debut with the big club has been delayed by setbacks with a strained groin and a stiff right shoulder, but he was finally activated after he checked out fine during a simulated game over the weekend. Because he hasn't had time to fully ramp up, Severino will be limited to a bullpen role for the rest of the 2021 campaign. The Yankees will presumably look to bring Severino back as a member of the rotation in 2022.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Could return Monday

    The Yankees could activate Severino (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list as early as Monday, Max Goodman of SI.com reports.

    Severino impressed during his most recent live batting practice session Friday, but it's unclear if that'll be enough for him to rejoin the big club, or if he'll need to complete another bullpen session or two prior to being reinstated. Regardless, Severino is slated to fill a relief role for the Yankees upon his return, and he may need to prove himself in lower-leverage scenarios before manager Aaron Boone trusts him in bigger spots. Severino's last big-league appearance came during the 2019 postseason, as he missed the entire 2020 season while requiring from Tommy John surgery last February. He's been sidelined throughout the 2021 campaign while continuing his recovery from surgery and having experienced groin- and shoulder-related setbacks during his rehab assignments this summer.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Impresses in live BP

    Manager Aaron Boone said Severino (shoulder) looked "really sharp" during Friday's two-inning live batting practice session, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    It's the first time since his rehab assignment was halted in mid-August that Severino has faced live hitters, and he'll likely require another session or two, at least, before being activated from the injured list. The 27-year-old is poised to fill a bullpen role for the Yankees upon his return.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Throwing sim game Friday

    Severino (shoulder) will throw two innings in a simulated game Friday, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

    Severino threw a bullpen session Monday and will face hitters Friday for the first time since his rehab assignment was paused in mid-August. The Yankees haven't yet indicated whether the right-hander will require a rehab assignment following Friday's sim game, but he'll likely be in the mix to rejoin the major-league club prior to the end of the season.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Slated to face live hitters

    Manager Aaron Boone said that Severino (shoulder) will face live hitters later this week, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

    Severino's Monday bullpen session figures to have gone well given that he's now progressing to facing hitters. Assuming he continues to progress without any setbacks, the right-hander could start a rehab assignment sometime within the next week, which would likely set him up to join the Yankees' bullpen before the end of the regular season.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Slated for another bullpen

    Severino (shoulder) is expected to throw a bullpen session Monday, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

    Severino resumed mound work last week, and manager Aaron Boone is hopeful that the right-hander will progress to facing hitters following Monday's throwing session. The 27-year-old likely won't have enough time to build back up to a starter's workload prior to the end of the regular season, but the team is hopeful that he'll be able to return as a reliever sometime in the final few weeks of the campaign.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Bullpen session on tap

    Severino (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    The bullpen session will mark Severino's first mound work since he was pulled off his rehab assignment at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in mid-August with a right shoulder injury. The shoulder issue was the second setback Severino has experienced this season as he works his way back from his February 2020 Tommy John surgery; he was previously taken off a rehab assignment in mid-June due to a Grade 2 groin strain. Ensuring he's able to pitch without any discomfort in his shoulder is now Severino's greatest concern, but because of the delays caused by his two setbacks, the 27-year-old doesn't look as though he'll have enough time to build back up for a starting role this season. Instead, Severino will likely prepare to join the Yankees as a reliever if and when he makes it back from the 60-day injured list.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Could begin mound work next week

    Severino (shoulder) is reportedly doing well and is expected to return to mound work by next weekend, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

    The right-hander has been playing catch after tests recently cleared him of structural damage to his shoulder. He was subsequently allowed to restart a throwing program but has yet to progress to mound work. Given the limited time remaining in the regular season, the chances of Severino pitching for the Yankees this season appear slim though not entirely unfathomable.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Plays catch Friday

    Severino (shoulder) played catch from 60 to 70 feet Friday, per MLB.com.

    Severino was recently cleared to resume throwing after undergoing an MRI and consulting with multiple medical professionals. The right-hander will progress from throwing on flat ground to bullpen sessions as he begins to ramp back up, and the team will closely monitor him before deciding when he may restart a rehab assignment. Severino could still return before the end of the regular season, but that scenario is far from a certainty.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Able to begin throwing

    Severino (shoulder) has been cleared to resume his throwing program, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    The right-hander recently met with Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who gave the thumbs up for Severino to begin throwing again. He had been shut down since Aug. 13 after experiencing tightness in his shoulder. Severino was in the midst of a rehab assignment prior to his latest setback, so he should resume throwing in minor-league games in the near future. It's unclear when he might be able to rejoin the big club or what his role will be when he returns.

  • Yankees' Luis Severino: Cleared of damage to shoulder

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Thursday that Severino was cleared of any structural damage to his right shoulder after receiving a second medical opinion, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Severino will be shut down from throwing for the next week before the Yankees re-evaluate him.

    Severino hasn't made an appearance for the Yankees since the 2019 postseason after undergoing Tommy John surgery in February 2020, but the health of his right elbow no longer appears to be a concern. The right-hander previously had a minor-league rehab assignment halted in mid-June when he incurred a Grade 2 groin strain, and after restarting his rehab assignment earlier this month, he made just two appearances for Double-A Somerset before experiencing tightness in his right shoulder. While he was fortunate to avoid any major damage to the shoulder, Severino's uncertain timeline to resume throwing could make it a challenge for him to make it back to the Yankees before the end of the season. If Severino does get activated from the 60-day injured list, he may have to work out of the bullpen, given the lack of time he'll have to build up his pitch count for starting duties.
