With Trenton in 2015, Severino compiled a 2–2 record with a 3.32 earned run average and 48 strikeouts in 38 innings of work.
Scott Aldred, the pitching coach for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders of the Class AAA International League, helped him improve his pitching technique.
Through the end of July, Severino had a 7–0 record with a 1.91 ERA in 11 games started for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Due to the Yankees’ postseason aspirations, Severino was removed from consideration in trade talks for pitchers David Price, Cole Hamels, and Johnny Cueto on July 31st.
