Yankees’ Luis Severino is out with injury after giving up 3 homers


So much for the good health of the Yankees from their starting rotation.

In case Luis Severino’s drop in speed wasn’t concerning enough, there were the results of the last three hitters in the Reds’ lineup in the second inning Wednesday night: back-to-back homers.

Shortly after the third homer landed in the seats, Yankees manager Aaron Boone and a coach drove to the mound to visit Severino, who eventually stayed in the game, but not for long.

After finishing the second inning, Severino took the field in the top of the third, but quickly reversed course after throwing a warm-up pitch and returning to the dugout with his night over early. JP Sears came in from the bullpen to relieve him.

Severino, who underwent Tommy John surgery in 2020, threw 43 shots, coming away with a 4-0 deficit.

The right-hander’s speed was down on each of his four throws, with his fastball averaging 94.1 mph – down from his season average of 96.1 mph.
