Luis Severino is back in the bigs as the New York Yankees have called him up from Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre.

After a dreadful start to his 2016 campaign coupled with a detrimental injury, Luis Severino was sent back to the minors to work on his mechanics, command, and overall poise.

Simply put, the 22-year-old answered the call and finds himself back on the major league roster following 10 promising starts with the RailRiders. Shane Hennigan of the Scranton-Times Tribune was the first to report the promotion.

In seven starts early on with the big club, the hard-throwing right-hander was 0-6 with a 7.46 ERA. Ever since dropping a level, he is 7-1 with a stellar 3.25 ERA while striking out 57 and walking only 15 in 63.2 innings.

If Severino can regain the form that led him to a 2.89 ERA in 11 major league starts last year, he will be a vital addition to a Yankee team trying to squeak its way into a postseason push.

Additionally, this will add to speculation that the organization is closing in on a deal to ship one of their three mid-tier major league starters — Nathan Eovaldi, Michael Pineda, and Ivan Nova.
