Yankees starting pitcher Luis Severino will make a rehab start with the Double-A Somerset Patriots on Tuesday at TD Bank Ballpark.
The Patriots are opening up a six-game series with the Philadelphia Phillies Double-A affiliate, the Reading Fightin’ Phils this week.
Severino has been on the injury list for the Yankees since Spring Training. He made a rehab outing with Triple-A Scranton on May 10, where he allowed a run over 3.1 innings of work.

The Yankees hurler is no stranger to Somerset. He has rehabbed with the Patriots on two seperate occasions the past two seasons.
In fact, “During both rehab assignments, the Patriots threw a no-hitter. Severino started the first no-hitter in franchise history with four perfect innings on August 8, 2021, which was the second and final game of his rehab assignment that year,” a press release issued by the Patriots stated.
The Yankees could use Severino’s help. Clarke Schmidt gave up seven runs on Sunday to the Rays and watched his record drop to 1-4, and his ERA swell to 6.30.
Outside of Gerrit Cole, no Yankees starter has an ERA under 4.00, and that includes Nestor Cortes who has a 5.53 ERA.
Severino’s rehab outing Tuesday begins at 6:35 from TD Bank Ballpark. We will have the game for you on Fox Sports New Jersey.
