    Yankees’ Luis Severino: First healthy spring since 2018

    New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Luis 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: Two scoreless frames in return

    Luis 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 New York Yankees reinstated Luis 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.

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: Bullpen session on tap

    Luis 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 New York Yankees as a reliever if and when he makes it back from the 60-day injured list.
