Luis Severino Scouting Report
The ace of the Yankees rotation, Severino has been incredible thus far in 2018. The young 24 year old hurler has showed some signs of mortality allowing seven runs over his past two outings, lasting just five innings in each start. His last outing came on the 12th in Cleveland where he surrendered four runs on nine hits, while he walked one and struck out one over five innings pitched.
His repertoire, per Brooks Baseball
In 2018, he has relied primarily on his Fourseam Fastball (98mph) and Slider (88mph), also mixing in a Change (88mph).
His fourseam fastball is thrown at a speed that’s borderline unfair, results in somewhat more groundballs compared to other pitchers’ fourseamers and has slightly less natural movement than typical. His slider is thrown extremely hard, sweeps across the zone, has exceptional depth and results in many more groundballs compared to other pitchers’ sliders. His change is much firmer than usual and has a lot of backspin.
