SP - NYM
Luis Severino and the New York Mets are finalizing a one-year, $13 million contract.
Severino will stay in New York after spending eight years with the Yankees. He will look to rebound after posting a 6.65 ERA this past season. It will be a one-year prove-it deal for Severino with the Mets.
Luis Severino is drawing interest from up to eight teams as his rehab (oblique) has gone well.
The Yankees are reportedly not one of the teams who have shown interest in Severino. He is coming off a rough season where he recorded a 6.65 ERA across 18 starts with the Yankees. He will look to bounce back with likely a new team next season.
Luis Severino has been placed on the 15-day IL due to a left upper-body injury.
Further test results are still pending, but the Yankees clearly see this injury as severe enough to put Severino on the IL. With the Yankees far away from a playoff spot, it's very possible that Severino will not return this season. We'll know more after additional testing, but his 2023 season may end with a 6.65 ERA and 1.65 WHIP in 89.1 innings pitched.
Luis Severino allowed four hits, one walk, and two earned runs in a loss to the Brewers Friday.
Severino tallied five strikeouts and a no decision in his 19th start of the season. The 29-year-old has struggled this season, posting a 6.65 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP. Fantasy managers should leave Severino on waivers.
Severino's impressive outing improves his season stats, but his 6.64 ERA and 1.66 WHIP still leave much to be desired for fantasy owners.
However, his ability to limit walks and generate strikeouts in this game is a positive sign, and if he can build on this performance, he could become a more reliable fantasy option moving forward.
