Luis Severino pointed to an area in his forearm, near the elbow, as the one where he feels soreness, only after throwing his changeup. Severino: "(I) just worry about that one spot up there because my elbow, shoulder and my whole arm is pretty good. I've been throwing really hard, I feel like my fastball is running pretty good, so I'm not worried about a spot other than that one."

Aaron Boone said Luis Severino has been dealing with forearm discomfort, which started after Game 3 of the 2019 ALCS. Two MRIs and a CT scan came out clean. The team is hoping that anti-inflammatories will work to help with soreness. He's currently shut down from throwing and there's no timeline for his return.

Aaron Boone on Aaron Judge: "Threw again today, went well. I think he threw out a little further today; expect him to start his hitting program and ramp it up tomorrow. He'll be in the cage, probably hitting off the tee, soft toss, doing what he does; feel good about where he's at."

It's not a happy birthday for Luis Severino, who turned 26 today, but was shutdown by the Yankees due to right forearm discomfort and was treated with anti-inflammatories. GM Brian Cashman did not rule out that Severino may have to start the 2020 season on the injured list, though that is an unknown at this point.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman said that the last MRI for Luis Severino was in January. Severino had two MRIs and a CT scan after complaining of discomfort, and all tests have been negative. “It could be small and a timing issue or it could be significant,” said Cashman about Severino's forearm discomfort. “It's possible,” he answered when addressing if Severino may start the season on the IL.

Luis Severino has apparently been suffering from slight forearm discomfort since the playoffs last year. Went for testing and all has been okay, except a "loose body" (bone chip) near his elbow, which apparently is of no concern to the team. Was doing all his side work and pitching routine and felt fine, except he was not throwing his changeup. When he started throwing his changeup again, that led to the discomfort. Will be seen by Dr. Chris Ahmad tomorrow.
