New York Yankees starting pitcher Luis Severino exited Wednesday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds because of right shoulder tightness and will undergo an MRI on Thursday.
Severino threw a warmup pitch to start the third inning and was replaced by JP Sears.
The right-hander averaged 94.1 mph on his fastball, down from his season average of 96.1
He left after allowing three straight homers to Kyle Farmer, Mike Moustakas and Stuart Fairchild in a span of four pitches to start the second.
After Fairchild’s homer, manager Aaron Boone and a trainer came out for a mound visit and Severino went on to finish the inning.
Severino, 28, entered Wednesday 5-3 with a 3.11 ERA through his first 15 starts.
