MLB Handicapping: New York's Severino enduring sophomore slump

05.03.2016     08:36 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Pegged to be an up-and-coming star, New York's Luis Severino has struggled mightily this season. Reports have hinted that his mechanics may be off and that there's not enough separation between his fastball -- which averaged nearly 96 mph -- and his change up.  He's no doubt been a bit unlucky with a .417 BABIP and 62% LOB rate. But his line drive and hard hit rates currently sit above 30%. If he struggles again against Baltimore tonight, there's a good chance he gets demoted.

“You want to have separation between your pitches,” Girardi said. “When pitchers are too close in velocity in their pitches, that’s why you see so many foul balls, because they’re not as fooled as much as they need to be fooled from a speed standpoint.”
