Luis Severino Earns the Call

Just moments after the 2015 non-waiver trade deadline ends New York Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman announces that top pitching prospect Luis Severino will make his next start in pinstripes as a member of the New York Yankees.  At 21-years old he becomes one of the youngest pitchers in the majors this season. Beat writer Bryan Hoch tweeted the news.

Cashman also announced that there will be no innings limit for Severino going forward as they have planned for this since the beginning of the season.  During his time in the minors this year he averaged just over 5 innings per start, throwing 99 1/3 innings in 19 games.  His last start came on July 29 when he struck out a career high 10 batters, throwing 6 innings.

Overall this season Luis owns a 9-2 record with a 2.45 ERA between Double-A and Triple-A while striking out 98 batters.
