The 29-year-old right-hander will be a free agent at the end of this Major League season and with his poor numbers and continued physical problems, he knows his time in the Bronx is over. on that pitch against Milwaukee at Yankee Stadium.
Severino was called to be the ace of New York’s rotation, and after two campaigns in the top 5 of Cy Young voting they gave him a contract extension where he became a loan.
Last winter the Yankees decided to exercise the 2023 option but the opportunities have run out for the Dominican, who this year left a record of 4-8 and an ERA of 6.65 in 19 appearances and who now has to try to his luck in the market.
The first thing Severino needs to do is show he’s healthy and that he can pitch without a problem in 2024. Then, his ineffectiveness on the mound is behind him. If you get a job, the certainty is that you will suffer a decrease in your income.
After earning a salary of $15 million in 2023, the Spotrac portal estimates that his market value will be $9.8 million and that he will hardly get a multi-year deal.
Arms are always needed in the Major Leagues, so Severino’s market may be wider than you think.
If he’s healthy he could be on the radar of teams looking to become contenders like the San Diego Padres or St. Louis. Louis Cardinals, or he’ll get a chance to rebuild clubs like the Los Angeles Angels or Oakland Athletics and so on. with the Colorado Rockies.
