Severino was selected to start the 2017 American League Wild Card Game.
He was pulled from the game after only one-third of an inning after allowing three earned runs, which is tied for the shortest postseason effort by a Yankees pitcher.
The Yankees fell to the Houston Astros in the American League Championship Series in seven games, and he went on to end the 2017 postseason with a 1-1 record and a 5.68 ERA in 16 innings (4 starts).
Severino was selected as a finalist for the American League Cy Young Award on November 6. He came in third place in the voting, just behind Chris Sale and Corey Kluber.
He scored 73 points overall, which included 20 third-place votes, 6 fourth-place votes, and 1 fifth-place vote. The Yankees announced Severino as their Opening Day starter on March 17, 2018.
In 5+2/3 innings against the Toronto Blue Jays, he struck out seven while allowing just one hit. For the first time in his major league career, Severino pitched a complete game on May 2, 2018, shutting out the Houston Astros 4-0.
Severino struck out 10 while giving up no runs. Between April 16 and June 4, Severino had ten straight quality starts with at least six innings pitched and three earned runs or less allowed (in six of those, he allowed one or no earned runs).
During this time, he went 7-0 with a 1.85 ERA in 68 innings, allowed just 45 hits (four of them home runs), struck out 82 batters, walked just 14 batters, and held his opponents to a .184 batting average.
Severino doubled his win total before the All-Star break in 2017 and became the first Yankee pitcher to win 10 or more games before the All-Star break since Masahiro Tanaka in 2014.
On June 16, Severino earned his 10th victory of the season after limiting the Rays to three hits and two walks in eight scoreless innings with nine strikeouts.
After pitching 6+23 innings of scoreless relief to defeat the Red Sox on July 1, Severino became the first Yankee since CC Sabathia in 2011 to win 13 games before the All-Star break.
