Luis Severino News
New York Yankees right-hander Luis Severino (oblique) will miss the remainder of the 2023 season after being diagnosed with a high-grade left oblique strain on Saturday. The 29-year-old was pulled from Friday's start versus the Milwaukee Brewers with a left side issue. He was later diagnosed with an oblique strain. The right-hander finishes the season with a 6.65 ERA, 1.65 WHIP, and a 79:34 K: BB across 89 1/3 innings in 2023. Severino is an impending free agent next offseason, and it's entirely possible his career as a Yankee could be over. The veteran will look to fully recover this offseason from his oblique strain and rebound in 2024 after a dismal 2023 campaign.
New York Yankees starting pitcher Luis Severino was pulled from Friday's start versus the Milwaukee Brewers due to a left side injury and he will undergo diagnostic testing on Saturday. The 29-year-old was in visible discomfort while favoring his left side and had to come out of the game before recording an out in the fifth inning. Severino allowed two earned runs on four hits and one walk with five strikeouts in four innings before his night ended. It remains to be seen if the oft-injured right-hander is dealing with an oblique strain, which could end what has been a fall from grace in 2023 for the former Yankees ace. Severino has staggered to a career-worst 6.65 ERA and 1.65 WHIP with 79 punchouts during 89 1/3 frames this year.
New York Yankees starting pitcher Luis Severino improved to 4-8 in Monday's 4-1 win over the Tigers. Severino pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing five hits and no walks with eight strikeouts. This was the second consecutive strong outing for the 29-year-old, who has struggled mightily overall with a 6.64 ERA in 81 1/3 innings pitched. While injuries have kept Severino from accumulating big innings, he had delivered strong results when he did pitch prior to this season. While he now has two encouraging starts in a row, fantasy managers should still be cautious, particularly in his next start at the Astros. At this point, fantasy managers cannot afford to trust him.
After totaling just 18.0 IP in the three years prior (due to a shoulder injury then TJS), Luis Severino should feel good about the 102.0 IP of work he got through in 2022. The 19 starts saw Severino put up a 7-3 W-L record, 3.18 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 112 Ks. He had a 60-day IL stint between July and September, although it appears as though the Yankees were extremely cautious with Severino given his recent injury issues and he could have pitched again long before he did eventually return. He made three starts to close out the regular season before starting twice in the postseason so fantasy owners shouldn't be concerned about Severino beginning the 2023 season limited. Although it's unlikely the Yankees will let him reach the 191.1 IP he had in 2018. Severino was able to put up strikeout numbers similar to what he had pre-2019, with a 27.7% K% (28.2% K% in 2018) and 12.3% SwStr% (12.4% SwStr% in 2018). That was despite a drop in his fastball velocity from 97.6 MPH in 2018 to 96.3 MPH in 2022. Severino's 2.94 xERA, 3.38 xFIP and 3.37 SIERA all tell us he wasn't lucky last year so if he can stay healthy, Severino has the potential to be an SP2 despite being the ~33rd starting pitcher taken in drafts (~118 ADP).
