Severino, who will turn 25 on Wednesday, was arbitration eligible for the first time as a Super Two player. The new deal allows the two sides to avoid arbitration and locks Sevy in with the Bronx Bombers for the foreseeable future.
Severino has posted dominant numbers the past two seasons, compiling a 3.18 ERA to go with 10.5 K/9, 2.3 BB/9, 0.94 HR/9 and a 46 percent ground-ball rate in 384 2/3 innings of work.
The Yankees have officially announced Severino’s new deal:
Today, the New York Yankees announced they have signed RHP Luis Severino to a 4-year contract extending through the 2022 season, with a club option for the 2023 season.
