Luis Severino Newsbeat

Girardi won’t rule out a Severino bullpen appearance | New York Post

One bad game shouldn’t wipe out a great season.

WaPo: One of Mike Francesa’s callers predicted Luis Severino’s early exit … and he was mocked

Al Alburquerque was unavailable for comment. (Were he real.)

“Let’s just say, inning one, right away, you can tell Severino doesn’t have it,” the caller asks. “Do you go to [Yankees reliever] Sonny Gray first or would you go right to Chad Green?”

Francesa, who already had predicted that Severino “was gonna go deep, he could go as many as eight innings,” scoffed at the notion as only Francesa can.

“How many games this year did Severino come out in the second inning, out of his starts?” Francesa asked. “I guarantee you none.”

(Francesa is correct! Severino’s shortest start this year was May 14 against the Astros, when he gave up three runs on six hits and was pulled after just one out in the third inning.)

“This year, I would say that 95 percent of Severino’s starts, he went at least five innings. Ninety five percent. Maybe more than 95 percent. It might have been 30 out of 31 stars, or whatever it was,” Francesa claimed.

(We’ll give this one to Francesa. Severino lasted at least five innings in 28 of 31 regular season starts, or 90.3 percent. Close enough!)

“So the idea of asking me why you’re gonna take him out in the first inning … it’s a ridiculous thing to bring up, it really is,” Francesa scolded. “He’s been one of the best pitchers in baseball. They are going to let him pitch, that’s why he’s pitching this game. I mean, there’s nothing not to like about what he’s done this year all the way down the line, and I would expect him tonight to go out there and really throw a heck of a game. I really would. I would be surprised if he didn’t go out there and throw seven innings, and that’s how many innings I think he’ll pitch. I think he’ll go seven innings, and I’d expect a typical Severino performance over those seven innings. That’s what I expect.”

New York Yankees’ young core is giving them reason to dream - Yankees Blog- ESPN

Severino sure looked like an ace last night.

“I think it is important to his development because you have to be able to do that,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said of Severino’s beating Sale. “If you want to call yourself an ace, you have to be able to match up against their No. 1 guy.”

Yankees’ Luis Severino dominant vs. Indians | MLB.com

“Sevvy is really good,” manager Joe Girardi said. “[What needs] to continue for him is to take steps forward. I’ve said all along: Sevvy’s stuff does not fall off. As he gets late in the game, it does not fall off.”

Yankees have a new ace — and reason for Sonny Gray restraint | New York Post

Talk about holding velocity. He was still hitting 99-100 MPH late in his appearance. Watching him throw 100 MPH on one pitch, then drop an 83 MPH sinking change on the corner was very impressive.

“That term gets thrown around loosely these days,” longtime former ace CC Sabathia said when I asked him whether Severino had earned that moniker. “But yeah, for what that term is, yeah, he is.”

“He’s thrown the best all year for us,” Girardi, who fielded the same question before Wednesday’s game, said of Severino. “You can call him what you want. Some people call him that.”

Luis Severino’s Breakout Season | FanGraphs Baseball

Before the season, the Yankees appeared to be a club in need of pitching. Their starting rotation ranked just 13th in our preseason Positional Power Rankings, and even the most enthusiastic Severino supporter would have had to admit, given how his 2016 season went, that his was one of the spots that the team would likely have to upgrade. More than two months into the season, New York’s rotation has mostly played to type. They rank 11th in starting pitching WAR, but Severino has gone from weak link to rotation bedrock. If the team can figure out how to get Masahiro Tanaka right, they might not have to trade for any starting pitchers, and Severino is the biggest reason why. The 23-year-old is breaking out in a big way. He’s having the best season of his young career, and is currently one of the best pitchers in all of baseball. Severino is a prime example of why you don’t give up on young players, and the Yankees deserve a lot of credit for standing by their man.
