Luis Severino hasn’t played in the Bronx since the end of the 2018 season. However, it’s likely Severino could salvage what’s left of the 2019 season during next week’s home stand.
According to Lindsey Alder of The Athletic, Severino is slated to throw 45-50 pitches during his start tonight with the Trenton Thunder. Boone added the results of Severino’s start could lead to Severino joining the Yankees within the next few days.
Luis Severino is expected to throw 45-50 pitches over roughly three innings tonight for Trenton. Aaron Boone said the results of that might lead to him rejoining the Yankees after that.
