Following a rough outing up in Boston, the New York Yankees have demoted Luis Severino to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
So one rough start and Luis Severino got sent down, huh New York Yankees? Damn, you guys are tough to please.
Anyway, after being roughed up for five runs on seven hits in 4.1 innings of work at Fenway Park during Tuesday’s 5-3 loss to the Boston Red Sox, the 22-year old was demoted to the Electric City.
Severino went 7-1 with a 3.25 ERA in 10 starts for the RailRiders before getting called-up in a relief role on July 27.
In three relief outings this season, the supposed “future ace” struck out ten batters and maintained a 0.00 ERA through 8.1 innings of work. Batters batted a mere .038 against him when he came out of the ‘pen.
Sure he was demoted, but don’t expect the kid to be in Scranton for too long. His arsenal is too good and the youth movement is well underway in the Bronx.
Prior to tonight’s game, the @Yankees added RHP Blake Parker to the active roster & optioned RHP Luis Severino to Triple-A, per @YankeesPR.
