New York Yankees Prospect Luis Severino Placed on 7-Day Disabled List

New York Yankees prospect Luis Severino has been placed on the seven-day disabled list with an oblique injury for his team in Double-A, the Trenton Thunder, on Saturday.

Baseball America's Josh Norris broke the news:

Anthony McCarron of the New York Daily News confirmed it was indeed Severino's oblique as the cause:

Severino was scratched from his last start on Sunday, August 3 because of soreness in his left oblique, per a report from Sweeny Murti of WFAN:

Murti did note it had nothing to do with his arm and that the injury wasn't that serious at the time. Judging from this DL stint, clearly it is at least slightly more serious than originally thought.

The best-case scenario is that Trenton is just taking extra precaution with Severino in the hopes of keeping him from injuring himself further. That certainly makes sense considering the stock the Yanks have in Severino, who is now the team's top pitching prospect and has broken top-50 prospects lists.

Not to mention, after Manny Banuelos, another top Yankee pitching prospect, was forced to have Tommy John surgery in 2012, New York can never be too careful with its young players.

    There is no such thing as a 15 day DL in the minors. It’s a 7 day DL. No wonder you guys have such lame stories, your writers are horrible and know very little.
