The Mules’ bullpen is reinforced: Luis Severino could finally make his debut this Sunday with the New York Yankees
Severino could make his debut this Sunday against Cincinnati Reds, in what would be his first season since the 2022 season where he went 7-3 in 19 appearances with the New York Yankees.
New York Yankees’ Dominican pitcher Luis Severino could be about to put an end to the injury that has prevented him from making his debut in the 2023 season and could be ready to take the mound and help the Mules’ pitching staff.
According to a recent statement from Yankees manager Aaron Boone, Severino is ready after a minor league start last Tuesday.
Bone described the right-handed pitcher’s performance as good and believes he is ready to make a good debut this season.
“He got some hits, but I think his first start in Scranton last time was very good, very sharp,” Boone said of Severino’s minor league performance.
On that occasion, Severino threw 59 pitches, 39 of which landed in the strike zone, for Somerset in Double-A during a 3.1 episode stint.
As if that were not enough, he allowed six hits in the opener, which translated into two clean runs to his account.
Thanks to that, the Yankees decided that next Sunday will be the day where Severino would take the ball for the third game of the series against Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park.
“All the stuff (Severino) was there. He was between 95 and 98 mph with his slider, changeup. He looked healthy. I think he’s ready,” Boone added.
Severino was one of the New York Yankees’ most consistent arms last season. In 19 games as a starter, he posted a record of seven wins and three losses, with 112 strikeouts in innings of work.
