The Yankees received bad news on RHP Luis Severino, as an MRI revealed a Grade 2 lat strain, according to multiple reports. Severino will be shut down for six weeks.
Severino was sent to New York on Monday after feeling some discomfort in his shoulder, manager Aaron Boone told reporters on Monday. The 25-year-old was out of the Yankees' rotation due to rotator cuff inflammation that occurred down in Spring Training. However, this is a new injury.
This is not what the Yankees wanted to see, especially coming from a starter who signed a $40 million extension back in February. Boone noted earlier this month that he was optimistic Severino would be able to move forward with his recovery to make it back into the rotation. Now, it's unknown exactly when that is going to happen again...
