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.

Yankees | Luis Severino to throw bullpen session

Sun, 22 May 2016 17:26:05 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino (triceps) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday, May 24, and he will make a minor league rehab start later in the week.

Fantasy Tip: Severino's first full season has been a rough one, but after the upside he showed last year, he is worth stashing to see if he can return to form.

Yankees | Luis Severino lands on DL

Sat, 14 May 2016 10:38:57 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino (triceps) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, May 14, with a strained right triceps. C Gary Sanchez was optioned to Class AAA Wilkes Barre/Scranton. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said that Severino isn't guaranteed a rotation spot when he returns. He won't throw for a few days to rehab a mild strain in his right triceps that an MRI revealed. Cashman said he didn't believe the injury has had anything to do with Severino's poor start.

"His stuff's not there," Cashman said. "His arm strength is there, but his stuff isn't there. He doesn't have command of his fastball. He doesn't have command of his secondary pitches. His changeup and his slider have been inconsistent. It's not health-related."

Fantasy Tip: Severino's numbers are extremely rough in his first seven starts at 0-6 with a 7.46 ERA and a 1.69 WHIP. He climbed the ranks in the minors very quickly, and it's entirely possible they could send him down to iron out his stuff. If you own him, hold onto him for now. If he was dropped, grab him and stash him on the DL simply because of his promise. As for the open rotation spot, Chad Green has been dealing at Scranton/Wilkes Barre. He's 2-3 with a 1.22 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP and 36 K's in 37 innings. It's his first stint above Double-A, but he'll likely be considered with Anthony Swarzak. If you have a spot in AL-only leagues, Green is worth the speculative grab. Swarzak's light isn't as bright for now. As for Sanchez, he has a future, but an injury to Brian McCann may be the only way he sees an extended run.

Yankees | Luis Severino bothered by sore elbow

Fri, 13 May 2016 18:34:23 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees SP Luis Severino (elbow) left his start against the Chicago White Sox Friday, May 13, due to soreness on the back of his right elbow. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam later tonight.

Fantasy Tip: Severino allowed seven runs on seven hits over 2 2/3 innings in his start Friday, with four walks and two strikeouts, and threw just 46 of his 81 pitches for strikes. The severity of his injury is unknown, so it is uncertain if he will be able to make his next scheduled start versus the Arizona Diamondbacks Wednesday, May 18. Keep checking back for updates on his condition.

Sun, 08 May 2016 17:03:48 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan will bat ninth against New York Yankees SP Luis Severino Sunday, May 8.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan provides little offensive production, and he isnít worth considering in daily formats.
