2019 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY WATCH: LUIS SEVERINO LIKELY OUT AT LEAST MAY AND MAYBE LONGER

A bad situation appears to be getting worse when it comes to the health and eventual return of New York Yankees ace Luis Severino if one listened to their GM.  On Friday while taking part in an interview with WFAN NY Radio, Cashman stated that it will likely be May 1 at the earliest that Severino would return to the team and that it could be even longer.  Out since the beginning of spring training with shoulder soreness, Cashman made it seem that Severino making it back by May 1 is just case scenario and also hinted that he will be treated with kid gloves prior to the return.  This is obviously nothing but bad news for Severino's owners who were hoping for a mid-April return but now one full month of prospective numbers seems to be falling by the wayside and maybe more.  Having engineered a truly horrible second half of 2018 after an ace-level first half, one has to wonder if the shoulder trouble began to flare then for Severino without him feeling pain.  Given how ugly the results were, Severino clearly was not right and he is one of the bigger early spring injury casualties.  Those who still haven't drafted should only be selecting Severino as an SP 3 due to the uncertainty surrounding him.
