Yankees' Severino 'not happy' after being placed on 60-day IL
The Yankees placed Severino on the 60-day injured list after a frenzy of roster moves leading up to Tuesday's trade deadline.
"I was not happy," Severino said, according to Brian Heyman of Newsday. "I was not expecting that."
The two-time All-Star added that he wasn't feeling any discomfort after throwing Monday. The 28-year-old landed on the 15-day IL in mid-July with a low-grade lat strain.
Severino ended up meeting with manager Aaron Boone to discuss the move.
"Obviously, it was a little bit of a roster situation. It's probably going to be a situation where it's close (to mid-September). We want to get Sevy back as a starter and built up to that point," Boone said.
Severino owns a 3.45 ERA with 1.07 WHIP and 95 strikeouts over 86 innings (16 starts) after missing almost three years due to multiple injuries.
