Brian Cashman excited about position battles | MLB.com

The Yanks’ chances would jump significantly if Severino can recapture the feel of his changeup and replicate what he did at the end of 2015, when he was 5-3 with a 2.89 ERA in 11 starts. Severino was 0-8 with an 8.50 ERA in 11 starts last year, and recently sought assistance from Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez.

“Which is the real [Severino]? We hope the one that possesses three above-average pitches, an explosive fastball, a devastating slider and a wicked changeup,” Cashman said. “That’s not what we got in 2016, so tear up 2016, throw it out the door.

“He muscled up, we felt, when he showed up for spring last year. [Pitching coach] Larry [Rothschild] communicated to him—less bulk and more flexibility. He looks great. It’s clear by how he looks that he did do that. He’s got a fresh start.”
