Former All-Star Severino to Metz for $13 million a year

Veteran right-handed starter Luis Severino, 29, will move to the other side of New York.

Local media, including ESPN, reported on Tuesday (Nov. 30) that Severino has agreed to a one-year, $13 million (167.895 million won) contract with the New York Mets.굿모닝토토

Severino has been with only one team so far, the New York Yankees.

In eight seasons, Severino has appeared in 141 games, going 54-37 with a 3.79 ERA. He peaked in 2017 and 2018, when he was named to two All-Star teams.

Since then, he hasn’t performed as well.

Injuries have plagued him. In 2019, he was limited to three appearances due to rotator cuff and side injuries in his right shoulder, and in February 2020, he underwent Tommy John surgery.

In 2021, he tore a groin muscle during a rehab assignment, delaying his rehab and limiting him to six innings in four games.

He returned to pitch 102 innings in 19 games in 2022 and 89 1/3 innings in 19 games in 2023, but struggled to a 4-8 record with a 6.65 ERA. He had a 1.646 WHIP, 2.3 home runs, 3.4 walks, and 8.0 strikeouts per nine innings.

He is expected to rebound for the 2024 season with the goal of hitting the free agent market again and being evaluated for value.

In his new team, he will be working with new manager Carlos Mendoza, who was a bench coach during his time with the Yankees.

The Yankees currently have a starting rotation that includes Senga Kodai, Jose Quintana, David Peterson, Tyler Megill, and Jose Bauto. They are reportedly one of the teams looking to sign Yoshinobu Yamamoto.
