BaseballNew York Yankees’ Prospect Luis Severino Promoted to AAA by Staff Post May 30, 2015 from NewsdayTop New York Yankees prospect Luis Severino is reportedly now just one step away from the Majors, as the Yankees announced that the team has promoted the 21-year-old right-hander from Double-A Trenton to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.Severino, considered by many as not only the top pitching prospect but also the No. 1 overall prospect in the system, has spent the entire year with Trenton, going 2-2 with a 3.32 ERA in eight starts for the Thunder. He has missed some time due to blisters, but in his last start Tuesday, the righty was dominant, striking out nine over five innings and retiring 11 of the last 12 batters he faced after a short rain delay.A breakout 2014 season, one where he went 6-5 with a 2.47 ERA in 24 starts over three levels of the system, earned Severino a non-roster invite to camp this spring, and he impressed the team both in workouts and in his two Grapefruit League outings.Many people question whether or not Severino along with young outfield sensation Slade Heathcott, and crafty left hander Jacob Lindgren are the start of another core for the Yankees in the future years to come.Yankees fans are tired of missing the playoffs and want to put a star team on the field year in and year out, but conserving the farm system has been crucial. The Yankees have a farm system that is better than everyone thinks, and is one that looks similar to the mid 1990’s and are not going to move anyone. Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman is not willing to move the talent that will evolve over the next few years.Bottom line is it is impossible to tell whether the Yankees will move Severino to the majors in 2015 but after the call up to Triple-A and the way the No. 1 prospect is pitching Yankees fans could see Severino in the Bronx sooner rather than later.
