Luis Severino missed the Yankees' opening gameMarch 6, 2019
Yankees right-hander Luis Severino will be lost on opening day due to an inflammation in his right shoulder that caused him to miss his scheduled start of the preseason.
Severino will not pitch for two weeks, manager Aaron Boone said after Tuesday's game against Atlanta.
Severino was going to open against the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday, but the Dominican was replaced by Stephan Tarpley.
Another Yankees starter, J.A. Happ, entered the third inning.
The manager of New York had advanced that Severino would be his opener in the opening game of the campaign against Baltimore on March 28.
"When he warmed up for the game, he made a pitching and he felt something around the dorsal or the back of the shoulder and he just did not feel good, so he gave up, "Boone said during the game's broadcast on the Yankees television channel.
