Yankees | Luis Severino pounded in Balto.

Tue, 03 May 2016 21:57:47 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino allowed four runs and five hits over six innings in a loss Tuesday, May 3, against the Baltimore Orioles, slipping to 0-4. While he allowed just five hits, many of Baltimore's outs were hit hard. He also dropped two flips from 1B Mark Teixeira on defense.

Fantasy Tip: Opponents are hitting .333 against Severino this season, and that ranks third-to-last in the majors. He also has a 6.31 ERA over five starts, and another stinker or two could land him a trip to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to iron out his problems. Fantasy owners should be concerned.

Yankees | Luis Severino struggles

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 00:21:07 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino dropped to 0-3 this season Tuesday, April 26, in a 10-1 loss to the Texas Rangers. Severino lasted only three innings, and he gave up seven hits, two walks and a wild pitch.

Fantasy Tip: Severino went into the game with the worst run support among American League starters, averaging 1.33 runs per contest. This is not like the Yankees, who have done a decent job scoring against most pitchers. Still, if New York won't hit for him for now you have no choice but to sit Severino.

Yankees | Luis Severino has been hittable

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 11:51:14 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino, who is receiving an American League-worst 1.33 runs per game of support, has allowed 25 hits (two home runs) in three short outings this year, and he has gone six innings just once. He allowed seven hits or fewer in each of his 11 starts last year. Severino has relied on his high-90s heater 58% of the time, while his slider and changeup have taken a back seat. Severino said he's also throwing his slider too hard.

Fantasy Tip: Severino remains one of the Yankees' more promising starting pitchers, but it appears his pitch selection needs improvement in the early going. If someone in your league has dropped him, scoop him up immediately. As is often the case with young pitchers, patience must be shown.

Yankees | Luis Severino bringing the heat

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 16:01:40 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino's 95.1 mph fastball average is the fourth highest among starting pitchers with at least 10 innings pitched this season, according to FanGraphs.com.

Fantasy Tip: Severino has struggled to start 2016, but don't forget the 22.0 strikeout percentage he posted as a rookie last year. With a cushy matchup against the Oakland Athletics Thursday, April 21, expect Severino to kick-start a nice run on the bump. Have patience with the young hurler.

Yankees | Slider a problem for Luis Severino

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 11:53:35 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino worked on his slider with pitching coach Larry Rothschild after his last start. Opposing hitters are 9-for-15 (.600) against Severino's slider this year.

Fantasy Tip: Severino allowed four earned runs in 5 2/3 frames to the Mariners in his last outing. He displayed last year that he had the dominance and command to possibly break out in 2016, but he's been slow to develop so far. If his slider becomes more effective, things could turn around quickly. He has a fine matchup against the A's Thursday night.

Yankees | Luis Severino knocked around

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 20:33:12 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino allowed four earned runs on eight hits while striking out two in 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Seattle Mariners Friday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Severino has a 5.91 ERA after two starts and has allowed 18 hits in 10 2/3 innings. Don't give up on him yet, but don't count on him being more than a No. 4 or No. 5 fantasy starter.

Yankees | Luis Severino named No. 4 starter

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 18:05:38 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino will start the team's fourth game of the regular season April 8, against the Detroit Tigers, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Severino went 5-3 with a 2.89 ERA in 11 starts as a 21-year-old rookie in 2015, with 56 strikeouts in 62 1/3 innings. He's worth selecting in the later rounds of mixed fantasy leagues as starting pitching depth with a great deal of upside.

Yankees | Luis Severino not guaranteed a job

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 07:09:19 -0800

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino isn't guaranteed a job in the starting rotation, according to manager Joe Girardi. Severino allowed five runs in 1 1/3 innings in his first spring training outing.

Fantasy Tip: Severino was impressive in his first taste last year, going 5-3 with a 2.89 ERA in 62 innings. However, control can be an issue for this pitching prospect, and he must show that his secondary pitches can be sustained. Target Severino as late-round pitching depth with loads of upside.

Yankees | Luis Severino's command shaky

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 15:18:25 -0800

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino allowed five runs on two hits in just 1 1/3 innings in his spring debut Wednesday, March 2. He walked two, hit a batter and struck out two. "I was not finishing my pitches," Severino said. "I don't know what happened. In the first inning I was good from the windup, but when I got to the stretch, everything was up."

Fantasy Tip: Severino had a fine first go of it with the Yanks, going 5-3 with a 2.89 ERA in 62 innings. His control and dominance looked good, and his hard fastball/slider combination yielded plenty of grounders. But let's see if Severino can improve on that before being overly optimistic. Select him for rotation depth in the late middle rounds.

Yankees | Luis Severino ready for 200 innings?

Thu, 18 Feb 2016 08:14:48 -0800

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino is viewed as a player that can handle 200 innings, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Let's pump the brakes just a little bit. Severino's career high in innings was 113 1/3 in 2014 between three levels in the minors. He threw 99 1/3 last season, and teams generally don't like to make big jumps over young hurlers' previous marks. The soon-to-be 22-year-old is a midrange starter with a lot of upside.
