Yankees place Luis Severino on injured list, active Jonathan Loáisiga

The New York Yankees made several roster moves before Thursday’s series finale against the Cincinnati Reds at Yankee Stadium.

The team placed starting pitcher Luis Severino on the 15-day injured list with a low-grade right lat strain. Reliever Ryan Weber was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take his spot on the 26-man roster.


The Yankees also reinstated reliever Jonathan Loáisiga from the 15-day injured list and optioned reliever JP Sears to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to make room on the 26-man roster.

Severino left Wednesday’s start after just two innings with what was originally described as right shoulder tightness. The right-hander’s fastball velocity was noticeably down. Severino owns a 3.45 ERA over 86 innings this season.

Loáisiga returns to the bullpen after missing about two months with right shoulder inflammation.

Sears surrendered two runs over 3 2/3 innings on Wednesday night.
