Game 152: The Return of Severino

Embed from Getty Images

Today is the day, folks. Luis Severino Louis Cefarino his making his season debut. I wrote all about that earlier today, and Steven wrote about how there is nobody quite like Severino on the pitching staff. Check ’em out if you missed it.

Tonight is as nervous (it’s excited nervous, to be clear) for a regular season game as I’ve been in quite a while. Severino is extremely important. I really hope he comes out firing. I feel really good about this Yankees team going into October anyway, but gosh, wouldn’t it be so, so nice to know that Luis Severino looks like Luis Severino? Tonight is step one.

Anyway, Steven has you covered with the series preview, which has everything you need to know and more about the Angels.

Leftovers

  • Giancarlo Stanton is expected to be activated either tomorrow or Thursday, per James Wagner. He’s apparently been hitting and fielding, as expected. Rejoice!
  • Breyvic Valera has been designated for assignment to make room for Severino Cefarino, per Lindsey Adler. Valera hit .219/.324/.313 in 37 plate appearances this season.
  • Aaron Hicks is in the “early stages” of a throwing program in Tampa, per Bryan Hoch. There’s not a lot of time left. I am extremely pessimistic we see Hicks again this season, which sucks.
  • Gary Sánchez is undergoing treatment for his groin strain, per Bryan Hoch. He reports that Boone is “optimistic” we’ll see him before the regular season, but as Boone noted, we’re “cutting it close.”

  1. Sevy is throwing the ball pretty well, it’s coming out of his hand easily and hitting 97-there is some rust but has 3 starts to work most of it out.
