SP - NYY
Yankees GM Brian Cashman says Luis Severino (elbow) could "reasonably" return in June or July next season.
Cashman added that Severino has been throwing from 90 feet in his attempted return from Tommy John surgery. The 26-year-old underwent the surgery back in February. He has pitched just 12 innings since the end of the 2018 season.
The Yankees have placed RHP Luis Severino on the 60-day IL.
Severino underwent Tommy John surgery in February and is expected to miss the 2020 season. The Yankees officially placed him on the injured list. Severino was progressing well in his recovery from the Tommy John surgery, and is expected to pitch sometime during the 2021 season.
Luis Severino told Bryan Hoch of MLB.com that he is "progressing well" in his recovery from Tommy John surgery.
The 26-year-old underwent Tommy John surgery back in February but says he is making steady progress in his rehab. Severino will obviously miss any 2020 game action but should be able to return partway through 2021 if things continue progressing in the right direction.
Luis Severino with a elbow injury has been rehabbing at the Yankees' spring-training complex.
Severino was limited to three regular season starts due to injury. His stats from last season were 1-1 with a 1.50 ERA and 17 strikeouts. Even when the season starts Severino will be out for season after having Tommy John surgery.
Luis Severino had Tommy John surgery Thursday, and all went as expected.
The Yankees also announced that Severino had a bone chip removed during the procedure. Severino will miss the entire 2020 season, and likely a portion of 2021 as well.
