Dominican pitcher for the New York Yankees, Luis Severino, could be about to put an end to the injury that has prevented him from debuting in the 2023 season and could be ready to jump on the mound and help the pitching of the Mules.
According to recent statements by Yankee manager Aaron Boone, Severino is ready after a minor league start last Tuesday.
Bone described the presentation of the right-hander as good and believes that he is prepared to make a good debut this season.
“They gave him some hits, but I think his first start in Scranton the previous time was very good, very in tune”Boone expressed about Severino’s performance in the minors.
In that occasion Severino executed 59 pitches, of which 39 fell into the strike zone, for Somerset in Double A during a 3.1 episode run.
As if that were not enough, in the opening he allowed six hits that resulted in two earned runs to his account.
Thanks to this, the Yankees decided that next Sunday will be the day where Severino would take the ball for the third game of the series against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park.
“All the material (from Severino) was there. He was between 95 and 98 mph on his slider, over. 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 left a record of seven wins and three losses, with 112 strikeouts. in innings of work.
