Severino’s Debut in Videos
The Yankees lost to the Red Sox last night by a score of 2-1. But Yankes rookie sensation Luis Severino didn't look overmatched in his major league debut.
He allowed two runs, only one of which was earned. He surrendered only two hits while walking none and striking out seven.
It's clear to see why Severino is among the top prospects in the entire Yankees organization.
He showed the ability to go in and out, within the zone, and he showed a 96 MPH fastball.
Take a look at his night in some short videos:
His first major league pitch? A strike to Brock Holt.
It didn't take much longer to get his first major league strikeout... One batter later, it was Xander Boegarts.
Boegarts was looking at a good slider... That thing really broke late and was hard, which makes it hard to see and pick up. It's almost a cutter.
And then his last strikeout.
Not a bad debut for the kid, even in a loss.
