The Yankees were dealt another blow to their rotation on Tuesday, when it was announced that Luis Severino will undergo Tommy John Surgery. Sevy is set to go under the knife on Thursday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
Following the devastating news, Sevy took to social media to release a statement:
Severino will of course miss all of 2020, after making just five starts last year. The Yankees, who don’t usually offer extensions to players before free agency, have had awful luck since inking Aaron Hicks and Severino to deals a year ago.
