Cash said Severino will make his next start for Yankees. Date TBD.

No Palooza today, because I was honestly expecting the Yankees to make another trade before the deadline. They didn’t, but they did make one move, the move first reported above by Mark Feinsand.
It makes a lot of sense. Severino doesn’t seem like he needs to learn much at the Triple-A level, and he fills an obvious need in the rotation. The Yanks probably have him on an innings limit for the year, so he can pitch now and when Pineda returns they can swap him in for Severino and cap his innings for the year.
No official word yet on when he’ll make his start, but it sounds like he lines up to face the Red Sox next week. No pressure or anything.
