Yankees will Pick Up Option on Pitcher Luis Severino


November 5, 2022

The New York Yankees are expected to pick up the option for Luis Severino, Jack Curry of the YES Network reports.

This is not a surprise, as Severino proved he still has what it takes to be a top starter for the Yankees when healthy. Severino went 7-3 for the Yankees last season with an ERA of 3.18, a WHIP of 1.00, and 112 strikeouts in 102 IP, covering 19 starts. Severino will be a part of a rotation for the Yankees along with Gerrit Cole, Nestor Cortes, Domingo German, and Frankie Montas at this point in time.

Saturday is Game 6 of the World Series. The Astros lead the series 3-2 and will look to bring home the championship with a victory. The Astros will have Framber Valdez on the mound, while the Phillies counter with Zack Wheeler. The Phillies have given Wheeler a couple extra days to prepare for this start, as his fastball velocity was down a couple ticks in Game 2.

The Astros are +155 (-1.5) on the run line and -146 on the money line, with an over/under of seven, over (+104), and under (-128). You can find the odds and props for this game and every other on the FanDuel Sportsbook.
