NEW YORK — Yankees right-hander Luis Severino was removed from a minor league rehab start with what appeared to be a painful injury to his right leg.
Severino was making his second rehab start following Tommy John surgery in February of 2020, pitching for High A Hudson Valley against Brooklyn.
The 27-year-old began to hobble immediately after throwing a pitch in the second inning. He limped behind the mound, struggling to put weight on his right leg.
Coaches and a trainer had to help him off the field.
Severino looked sharp in his first rehab appearance, reaching 98 mph with his fastball.
