Luis Severino suffers another setback

An update was shared Saturday on the status of Luis Severino, and it’s not news he or the team wants to face.

Sevy has been shutdown in the wake of soreness in his right lat. Aaron Boone has stated he is 90 percent healed, but will not resume throwing until he is 100 percent. He has also suggested it may take another week for him to resume activity.

Brian Cashman said on Sunday that in hindsight, Severino shouldn’t have even started throwing a few weeks ago. He added that the organization will look into it’s protocols.

Time will tell if Severino can come back in 2019. Expectations were high for him entering the season, especially having inked a four-year, $40 million deal back in February. In 2018, he went 19-8, with a 3.39 ERA and 220 strikeouts in 191.1 innings pitched.
