Why Luis Severino is such a big deal for the Yankees

The main issue today with the Yankees is the starting rotation; the likes of Sony Gray and Jordan Montgomery doesn't seem like they have much time left at the Bronx, as they haven't fulfilled the demands of being a Yankee, or C.C. Sabathia, who maybe will retire after this season as he now has 38 years old

Only Masahiro Tanaka and of course Luis Severino are the most reliable options in the future for the Yanks, but Severino is a special talent: He is one the best pitcher that the Yankees have produced in a very long, long time. 

 

Severino now has a record of 26 wins and 18 losses, with a career ERA of 3.47. But this season he is starting to look like a true ace and showing potential to become one of the league's best pitchers. And the Yankees must cherish him.

Over the years, the Yankees haven't produced many starting pitchers that could establish themselves as good assets for the team, having to either sign them or make trades for them.

 

The last homegrown All-Star caliber pitcher that they had was Andy Pettite, who came up during the 90's and early 2000's to became one of the all-time greats of the Bronx. During the 60's and 70's Mel Stottlemyre and Ron Guidry, were amongst the great homegrown Yankees pitchers. 

As we can see, there are not too many homegrown pitchers that have come up and make a substantial difference for the team, as other players that didn't make the cut like Joba Chamberlain, Chien-Ming Wang or Ivan Nova. Now Severino has the opportunity to shine where others failed for the Pinstripes.
