The Yankees’ general manager, Brian Cashman, announced that Severino’s next start would be in the major leagues against the Boston Red Sox, the team’s main rival, at Yankee Stadium due to Michael Pineda’s injury in late July and the team’s failure to acquire a starting pitcher before the trade deadline.
Despite the fact that Severino’s 113 innings pitched in 2014 were a career high, Cashman stated that Severino would not be subject to innings restrictions for the duration of the 2015 season, in part because they did so early in the year.
August 5 has been designated as Severino’s big league debut by Yankees manager Joe Girardi. In five innings of work during his debut, Severino allowed two hits, two runs (one earned), seven strikeouts, and no walks.
He was the MLB’s youngest pitcher to start a game in 2015 at age 21. In addition, he made MLB history as the first AL pitcher to debut in the majors and strike out seven batters while walking none and allowing no more than two hits.
He finished his debut year with a record of 5-3, a 2.89 ERA, 56 strikeouts, and 11 starts in 62+13 innings of pitching.
Severino was a part of the Yankees’ starting lineup to start the 2016 campaign. On May 13, 2016, Severino left a game against the Chicago White Sox with what seemed to be an injury after allowing 7 runs in 2.2 innings.
He was put on the 15-day disabled list the following day as a result of right triceps irritation. He was reinstated from the disabled list on May 30 and optioned to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders of the Triple-A level.
