Severino has Been Missing Bats to Start the 2017 Season

A tale as old as baseball itself will have another entry written this evening when the Red Sox attempt to get their series with the Yankees underway. Yesterday’s game was rained out so Luis Severino (1-1, 4.05 ERA) and Rick Porcello (1-2, 5.32 ERA) are still in line for the starts and bookmakers opened Boston as a huge home favorite in the opening chapter of the 2017 edition of this historic rivalry.

  • The visiting team is 0-7 SU in the last 7 games in this matchup and 0-3 on the runline in the last 3.
  • The Red Sox are 7-2 SU in their last 9 games at home.
  • The Yankees are 8-1 on the runline in their last 9 games against teams with winning records.

Barring another rainout, the Fenway faithful are about to be introduced to the real Luis Severino. The 23-year-old DR native has been touted as one of the best pitching prospects in all of baseball and he’s showed why in his last two starts, going a total of 15 innings, allowing five earned runs, while striking out 21 batters. Severino was lit up by the BoSox last season but they should be prepared to face a much better version of the young righty today.

Not getting his Cy Young title-defending season off to the start he would’ve wanted to, Rick Porcello will go to work in Boston tonight, a place he went 13-1 as a starter in 2016. The 28-year-old New Jersey native has been blown up in both of his home starts so far this year and could be in trouble against a Yankees side that owns the sixth-best slugging percentage in the majors through 18 games.
