New York Yankees pitcher Luis Severino is a Dominican professional baseball player. He made his Major League Baseball debut in 2015. 2017 proved to be an excellent year for him, with an All-Star nod and third place for the Cy Young Award in the American League voting.

In 2018, he was also named to the All-Star team. He missed the majority of the 2019 season and all of the 2020 season due to shoulder concerns.



As an international free agent, Severino signed to a $225,000 signing bonus with the New York Yankees on December 26, 2011.

He had previously agreed to a contract with the Colorado Rockies, but an offer from one of the Yankees’ scouts persuaded him to sign with them instead. At the time, he possessed a fastball that could reach 91 mph (146 km/h).

He made his professional debut with the Yankees of the Dominican Summer League (DSL) 1. He made 14 starts for the squad, going 4–2 with a 1.68 ERA and 45 strikeouts in 64+13 innings.

In 2013, he was promoted to the Charleston RiverDogs of the Class A South Atlantic League after playing with the DSL Yankees 1.

He went 4-2 with a 2.45 ERA and 53 strikeouts in 44 innings thrown in ten games (eight starts). He threw his fastball at 97 miles per hour in Charleston (156 kilometers per hour).
