Yankees’ Luis Severino feels ‘perfect’ throwing first bullpen since March

Newark Star-Ledger

Yankees ace Luis Severino was excited to finally throw off a mound for the first time since March on Friday afternoon. The 25-year-old Dominican expected to feel good because his rehab from season-long throwing arm issues finally has been going well since he resumed throwing again on July 15.

The right-hander felt better than good throwing 23 pitches in the visiting bullpen at Rogers Centre.

Asked how it went, Severino smiled and stated, “Perfect. Better than I expected.”

In what sense?

“Any sense,” he responded. “I threw a couple changeups, (two) sliders and everything was pretty normal. And it had the normal movement. I was expecting the secondary pitches to be a little bit off.”

Most importantly, Severino experienced no discomfort.

“Nothing,” he said.

A 19-game winner last season and an All-Star the previous two years, his first two full ones in the majors, Severino has been on the injured list all season.
