Luis Severino Newsbeat

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.

Yankees have to question if Luis Severino belongs in big leagues | New York Post

Severino said he gets in trouble when he rushes.

“I have to practice more in the bullpen,’’ he said of repeating his delivery and not rushing. “Sometimes the pressure of the game, you start thinking about that. I have to keep working.’’

Severino owns a 5.08 ERA this spring.

“You have to be able to slow things down and relax,’’ said Girardi, who in his playing career was always there as a catcher to try to guide the way. “The pressure of pitching in New York, the pressure of pitching in Tampa, Toronto, Baltimore and Boston, there’s pressure pitching there, too, so you have to learn to control your mind and slow things down and make your pitch.’’

Luis Severino hit 99 in outing, but that’s not why Girardi is pleased | New York Post

Once Severino masters his change (and it has the potential to be a really good one) he’s going to be dominant.
