An update was shared Saturday on the status of Luis Severino, and it’s not news he or the team wants to face.
Luis Severino has not been able to throw off a mound yet. He was shut down due to soreness and had another MRI. Aaron Boone said Severino’s lat is 90 percent healed but he won’t throw until it is 100 percent.
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.
Cashman said “with hindsight” #Yankees should have done MRI in Severino before allowing a throwing program. “Clearly he should not have started his throwing program.” Said still expects Severino to pitch this year.
Cashman would not go into much detail but offered his 1st indication he got better idea how Severino hurt his lat and also said while most injuries unavoidable some #Yankees could have done better with and are looking into 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.
