Yankees believe Luis Severino was tipping his pitches in ALDS, though there’s more to his struggles

Friday afternoon, one day before the Red Sox and Astros open the ALCS at Fenway Park, Yankees manager Aaron Boone and general manager Brian Cashman will hold their annual end-of-season press conferences at Yankee Stadium. New York won 100 games this year, but a four-game ouster in the ALDS qualifies as a disappointing season.

Among the topics Boone and Cashman will surely be asked about: Luis Severino. The staff ace finished the regular season with a 3.39 ERA (129 ERA+) in 191 1/3 innings, which is obviously very good, though it was a tale of two halves for Severino. He was great before the All-Star break and terrible thereafter.

Severino was one of the best pitchers in baseball in the first half and one of the worst pitchers in baseball in the second half. The strikeout and walk rates held steady, so that’s good, but home runs shot up and Severino was more hittable in general. Severino’s fade is a big reason why the Yankees settled for a wild card spot rather than push the BoSox for the AL East title.
