Yankees place Luis Severino in 60-day IL

Luis Severino’s status took a drastic turn on Monday.

Shortly after the Yankees acquired starter Frankie Montas from the A’s, the team announced that Severino — sidelined with a stretched lat — had been moved to the 60-day injured list.

The right-hander began the throwing portion of his rehab stint on Monday, but is no longer eligible to return until mid-September.

Out of injury since mid-July, Severino was initially placed on the 15-day IL with manager Aaron Boone saying he would “probably” be out for just two weeks with the low-grade strain.

Now the Yankees will likely rebuild him as a starter with the option of having him play another role as a playoff reliever.

The setback is the latest injury blow for the 28-year-old. He treated rotator cuff inflammation and grade 2 lat strain before a late season comeback in 2019. The following season he underwent Tommy John surgery, and his 2021 campaign was delayed by a strain in the groin then tightness in the shoulders.
