The New Yankee Ace [2017 Season Review]

Luis Severino was a highly-touted prospect coming up to the bigs. He had the stuff, could throw strikes, had youth, etc. However, there always were question marks following him (size, durability concerns and delivery, mostly).

Luis Severino finishes third in 2017 AL Cy Young voting

Luis Severino‘s first full Major League season has resulted in a third place finish in the American League Cy Young voting. How about that? Not too bad for a guy who didn’t have a rotation spot locked down going into Spring Training. Wednesday night, MLB and the BBWAA announced Indians ace Corey Kluber has won […] The post Luis Severino finishes third in 2017 AL Cy Young voting appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
