Luis Severino Shut Down Due To Forearm Discomfort (MLB Trade Rumors)

In yet another bit of troubling injury news for Yankees fans, manager Aaron Boone revealed Thursday that right-hander Luis Severino is experiencing forearm soreness that dates all the way back to his final ALCS appearance in 2019 (Twitter links via MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch).

Asked if Severino would be ready for Opening Day, Boone could only reply, “We’ll see.”

More to come.
