Severino (lat) said Monday that he would be willing to fill a bullpen role if the Yankees prefer to bring him back from the 60-day injured list in that capacity later this season, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.
After a shutdown period of just over two weeks, Severino was cleared to resume a throwing program Monday now that his strained right lat has fully healed. Because he's been on the shelf since March with a shoulder injury that later morphed into the lat issue, Severino will need to go through his own version of spring training before making his 2019 debut. Severino, who threw approximately 25 times from 60 feet Monday, would be able to expedite his return to the big club by working in a relief role, but it's unclear if the Yankees are willing to abandon the idea of bringing the righty back as a member of the rotation. Expect the Yankees to provide more clarity on Severino's role once he advances further along in the rehab process.
Manager Aaron Boone said that Severino (lat) received clearance to resume a throwing program Monday, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.
Sidelined all season with rotator cuff inflammation and then a Grade 2 lat strain, Severino will essentially need to complete a full spring training before the Yankees consider activating him from the 60-day injured list. He'll start by throwing on flat ground for the first time in approximately two weeks before advancing to bullpen sessions. Realistically, Severino won't be ready to return from the IL until late August and could have his pitch counts monitored carefully in any starts he makes before the regular season ends.
Severino (lat) will be re-examined Saturday and could resume his throwing program if the evaluation is promising, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Severino has been out all season with lat issues and suffered a setback in late June, forcing him to pause his throwing program. Even if he's able to resume throwing Saturday, the Yankees still don't expect him back in action for at least six more weeks. The team is considering having him return as a 75-pitch starter or a reliever, which would lessen his fantasy value but could help keep him healthy through the playoffs.
Severino (lat) had his throwing program shut down Saturday and isn't expected to return from the 60-day injured list until late August at the earliest, George A. King III of the New York Post reports. "He had a little bit of soreness and we held off a little bit. He re-MRI-ed which is what we wanted to do before he got back on the mound," manager Aaron Boone said of Severino. "He is about 90 percent healed so we kind of slowed it down. He will probably be throwing again, hopefully, in five to seven days. He won't get back on the mound until it's 100 percent."
Per Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger, general manager Brian Cashman admitted Sunday that Severino shouldn't have been throwing in the first place while his strained lat was only 90 percent healed, so the Yankees will now exercise caution and wait until he's 100 percent before ramping things up. Since he's been on the shelf all season, Severino will essentially require a full spring training regimen -- approximately six weeks in length -- before the Yankees sign off on an eventual return from the IL. Assuming Severino avoids any further setbacks and meets the Yankees' goal of being ready to return by late August, he would likely pick up around 4-to-6 starts before the regular season ends.
Severino (lat) suffered a setback and won't return until mid-August at the earliest, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.
He is dealing with soreness again in his lat and will be shut down for about a week, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. An MRI showed that the lat is 90 percent healed, and he will not throw until it is 100 percent healed.
Severino (lat) is scheduled to throw from 105 feet Tuesday, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.
Severino is slowly advancing through his throwing progression, and if all goes well, he could be throwing off a mound either June 25 or 26, per Randy Miller of The Newark Star-Ledger. Considering he's been on the injured list for the entire 2019 campaign, he'll likely need a lengthy stay in the minors prior to being activated. Severino is currently targeting a return sometime in July.
Severino (lat) threw from 60 feet 50 times Monday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Severino felt optimistic following his latest throwing session, and his next step will be to successfully throw on back-to-back days. The right-hander appears on track to be activated from the 60-day injured list soon after the All-Star break.
Severino (lat) will travel with the team to continue his throwing program, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.
Severino has thrown three times in the past week and has apparently remained pain-free as he will continue his throwing program. He's still thrown only off flat ground but will continue to stretch out his arm until he is able to participate in long toss. Severino won't return until after the All-Star break, but this news is still positive for his eventual return this season.
Severino (lat) was throwing off flat ground again Friday, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.
It's the third time this week Severino has played catch as he is gradually stretching out his throwing distance. Once the 25-year-old is able to participate in long toss, he should be able to advance to throwing off a mound. Severino won't make his return prior to the All-Star break.
Severino (lat) was able to throw off flat ground Wednesday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Severino has now thrown on two occasions this week, a positive sign as he continues to work back from a right lat strain. The Yankees plan to have Severino gradually stretch out his throwing distance over the next week or two before he resumes mound work. Severino has already been ruled out through the All-Star break.
Severino (lat) is visiting a doctor Monday in hopes of being cleared to play catch, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Severino hasn't felt any pain in his strained lat for approximately three weeks. He hopes to be able to throw off flat ground Monday or Tuesday. It's an important step in his road to recovery, though he remains not particularly close to a return to action.
Severino (lat) could resume playing catch Monday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
He has already been ruled out through the All-Star break, so this isn't necessarily actionable, but it's good to know he is at least progressing. The Yankees have weathered his absence quite well, getting excellent early season performances from Domingo German and CC Sabathia.
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) was diagnosed Tuesday with a Grade 2 lat strain and will be shut down for the next six weeks, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Severino underwent the MRI after he didn't feel right during his most recent session of long toss, but he apparently didn't aggravate his shoulder and suffered a new injury while rehabbing, per Adler. According to Jack Curry of YES Network, the 25-year-old may not return until early or mid-July, as it will take some time for him to build up his arm strength once he resumes throwing.
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.
Severino (shoulder) is still playing long toss and has not advanced to mound work, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Last week's report had Severino potentially throwing a bullpen session early this week, but that has not transpired. This is a very murky situation, as Severino will need to clear several hurdles before presumably being sent on a multi-start rehab assignment.
Manager Aaron Boone said Saturday that Severino (shoulder) could throw a bullpen session early in the upcoming week, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Severino has been long tossing off flat ground for about a week and a half, steadily increasing his throwing distance in each of those sessions. Assuming his shoulder responds well to the activity over the weekend, Severino will take another step forward by getting back on the mound. Despite Severino's continued progress, the Yankees intend to proceed slowly with their young ace, who has already been ruled out through at least April.
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.
