The big rehab outing for the Yankees on Friday night was supposed to be Luis Severino’s start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but the right-hander was scratched from the lineup just before the game.
According to Conor Foley of the Scranton Times-Tribune, Severino told RailRiders manager Doug Davis that he didn’t feel right as he warmed up.
“I think he’s probably scheduled for an MRI, see the doctor, all of that,” said Yankees manager Aaron Boone before Saturday’s game against the Chicago White Sox. “So we’ll probably have some news for you Monday. Nothing more (to share now) than, obviously, had the tightness and wasn’t able to go last night.”
Severino threw four perfect innings for Somerset on Sunday, August 8. He threw the first four innings of what turned out to be a combined no-hitter for the Patriots.
MLB Network’s Jon Heyman first reported that the right-hander would visit a doctor on Monday after feeling tightness in the shoulder. Heyman noted that seeing a doctor was viewed as a precaution.
