Yankees | Short stay in majors for Luis Severino?

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 15:31:55 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino might not stay in the majors long because RP Adam Warren could take his roster spot Tuesday, July 26, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Severino posted a 3.25 ERA with a 1.08 WHIP and 8.1 K/9 over 10 starts with Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but it sounds like he'll be back in the minors quickly. He's a stash candidate in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues because he could return to the Yankee rotation at some point this season.

Yankees | Luis Severino recalled from minors

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:11:42 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino was recalled from Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Monday, July 25. He is expected to pitch out of the bulllpen.

Fantasy Tip: Severino was atrocious through his first seven starts with the Yankees this season and posted a 7.46 ERA over 35 innings. Pitching out of the bullpen limits his fantasy value significantly, but he could still be worth owning in cavernous mixed and AL-only settings, especially if he develops into a lights-out reliever.

Yankees | Luis Severino still not ready

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 09:07:33 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino is still not ready to return to the majors, according to manager Joe Girardi.

"We've talked about Sevvy -- the location of his fastball has not been great, his changeup has not been as effective as we need it to be and his slider has been inconsistent," Girardi said. "We want to get him straightened out; we don't want to just bring him up because maybe another guy is struggling. You've got to make pitches here. Pitching here is a lot different. You make mistakes here and they are hit hard."

Fantasy Tip: Severino is 3-0 with a 2.52 ERA through four starts for Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and he pitched 8 1/3 innings of one-run ball in his last start Saturday, June 18. It appears he is close, but for now, he remains nothing more than a speculative stash in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Yankees | Luis Severino needs to show more

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 16:29:32 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino still has to show more, according to manager Joe Girardi, after throwing six shutout innings with seven strikeouts in his most recent start for Class AAA Wednesday, June 8. "He threw some better sliders, some better changeups," Girardi said. "But I still think there's work to be done with location of fastball and consistency of his off-speed. I did see some better sliders."

Fantasy Tip: After a very impressive rookie campaign a year ago, Severino was shockingly 0-6 in seven starts with an ugly 7.46 ERA and 1.69 WHIP before getting sent down. Luckily, he appears to be trending back up through his first two minor league outings, so he should at least be on the radars of fantasy owners in several formats. He's worth stashing on the bench for his high potential.

Yankees | Luis Severino demoted to Class AAA

Mon, 30 May 2016 14:11:13 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino (triceps) was activated from the disabled list Monday, May 30, and immediately optioned to Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Fantasy Tip: The 22-year-old Severino posted an 0-6 record with a 7.46 ERA through seven starts before the triceps injury, and he is only worth stashing in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats at this point. Everywhere else, you'll want to take a wait-and-see approach with the promising youngster.

Yankees | Joe Girardi considering six-man rotation

Wed, 25 May 2016 21:31:16 -0700

With the New York Yankees in the midst of a stretch of 40 games in 41 days, manager Joe Girardi indicated he would consider going with a six-man rotation when SP Luis Severino (triceps) is ready to return from the disabled list. "I think at some point, we'll consider injecting a sixth man in there," Girardi said. "I can't tell you at what point. It depends on how hard your starters have worked, what they look like, how they feel. But at some point, we would do it."

Fantasy Tip: It's no secret New York's rotation is filled with durability risks, so lightening the load during such an intensive stretch of games makes sense. Plus, it would help them sort of which five should start going forward. Each pitcher would stand to lose one or two starts over a 40-game stretch, so the impact would be negligible.

Yankees | Luis Severino to make rehab start

Wed, 25 May 2016 21:24:08 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino (triceps) is scheduled to make his first rehab start on Saturday, May 28, for Class A Tampa.

Fantasy Tip: The hard-throwing righty was all kinds of awful prior to going on the DL, and solid pitching from CC Sabathia and Ivan Nova have clouded Severino's immediate future. Don't be too quick to cut bait on Severino, however, given his upside and durability concerns for several of New York's current starters.
